Does anyone else have the desire to see Jonas, perhaps next year, dish out 100k to Hakeem the Dream to train with him for a summer (much like Dwight, Kobe and Staudemire did?). I just had an odd vision of JV shimmy-shaking defenders then taking it hard to the rim.
Raps surely put in the max allowed $550k leaving him with just under $2M. His rookie contract is the max 120% allowed and just over $3.5M.
*EDIT* Taxes are being neglected here. But if he isn't ahead after this year, he will be ahead by quite a bit starting next season.
By the way, can we change the thread title? I thought the buyout was arranged...
I've never understood why a team is only allowed to contribute $550k to a buyout but can include $3M in an NBA trade. I realize it is in the CBA (smartasses), however I'm trying to understand the reasoning for it? Really a buyout is just another form of trading.
Not sure this is a legimate question for this thread, but I've always been curious.
Yeah I think Calgary is absolutely right. NBA clubs have a huge financial advantage over Rest Of World clubs, I think this $550k limitation slows down NBA clubs from sucking out the talent from other countries and therefore ensuring more possibilities for native players (americans mostly). If there wasn't such limitation, I think there would be so much more international players in NBA and vice-versa - less talented cheaper americans would flood rest of world clubs.

- Where's the f*ckin ball?
- Can't touch this!
Jonas looks pretty good in a Raptors uniform!
love the old school jordons
edit: also that ross appears to be taller than acy, a power forward.
ross comes up to flying V's eyebrows, here's hoping his forehead is a solid 4 inches!
