Dooling bought out by the Celtics
« on: November 14, 2012, 06:55:57 AM »
But his cap hit is 400 k, which means he got 454 k.
Since the money he makes is so little couldn't they have bought out the entire sum? Unless there's restrictions on this.

If you're buying out a player in a lump sum payment, instead of game checks spread over many months, why wouldn't the team ask for a discount?

Isn't he also in a staff role too now? I wouldn't be shocked if his salary from that makes him whole on the buyout.
