If not epic fail by times reporter Broderick Turner who unfortunately if true is a Clipper beat writer.


Hollins, a 7-footer who went to UCLA, can be offered the bi-annual exception that starts at $1.9 million or the veteran’s minimum.

Mr. Turner is reporting the Clippers can offer the bi-annual exception and even has a dollar amount for it, but according to Wiki it is now defunct. I have already seen 2 posters say the Clippers have offered the BAE to Hollins in reaction to his article. I hope Turner is right, because it would be a nice pickup if true...however I think I gotta go with Wiki on this one.


Bi-annual exception
The bi-annual exception was used to sign any free agent to a contract starting at $1.672 million. Like the mid-level exception, the bi-annual exception was also split among more than one player, and was used to sign players for up to two years, which raised limited to 8% per year. This exception was referred to as the "$1 million exception" in the 1999 CBA, although it was valued at $1 million for only the first year of the agreement.
An example of the bi-annual exception was the Los Angeles Lakers' signing of Karl Malone to a contract before the 2003–04 season.
The exception was eliminated following the 2011 NBA lockout as many high spending teams were using this as a tool to gain top paid players.[6]

Who?I heard of him for the 1st time a couple nights ago. He gets some run on NBA TV. It seems you or I could do a better job...

IDK man, not 1 team signed a player using it last offseason. The only 2 BAE contracts left last season were Keyon Dooling and Ben Wallace who were on year 2. I'm going with Wiki on this one. Just trying to help a fellow Clipps fan out.

Yes it still exists, but only for nontaxpayers.

This is pretty misleading. He's director of IT at UC Irvine.

His cap credentials are as legit as they get, though.

Which is what Hoopsworld reported. You need to be over cap BUT under luxury.
