I thought he was going to play for his old team? I also thought we bought him out and structured it so that the buyout and whatever he was going to sign for in Spain would equal the money he was going to get from us this year. Now he goes and signs for more money somewhere else? Im only assuming its for more money because I remember reading that he had a soft spot for the team in Spain and that they were still favourites in signing him even though he had better offers in Russia.

So if my assumption is true, I say **** you.

thats the problem with the Euroleague and Eurocup websites... they never give that info, but sport5 reports that he signed for 3 million euros a season

I honestly don't give it a **** where he ended up being signed, for how much and how long. What does matter to me is the fact that he was a solid expiring contract with a situation potentially attractive to other teams, which could've transpired into a better quality patching of one of the holes on the roster. I'm not sure I understand why buying him out was of such a paramount importance and how the team is now better off on and off the court going forward.

Thats what I was saying when it happened also. I find it hard to believe there wasnt a team out there looking for around 4.5 mill off the books next season. Add that to Parkers contract and Grahams and you have 10 mill in expiring contracts.
