good lord. Ainge has him under contract for 3 more years? that's got to be one of his most bone-headed signings.
I'd look into trading Nader into another team's cap space (and giving them cash for the trouble) before waiving/stretching him. 150k isn't much now, but it could be the difference between getting a buyout guy or not
I think they can stretch him over 7 years, so itís closer to $64k.
I donít know if I can take 7 more years of looking at Naderís name when looking up Celtics team salary on Hoopshype/Spotrac. Itís been annoying enough with Demetrius Jackson and I didnt mind him. Best to just cut the cord now and suffer the consequences (actually, not really - I am one of those who is a bit obsessed with staying under the tax this year).
This year is partially guaranteed ($450k if waived before Aug 1), and the next two years are non-guaranteed.
As one of the only people supporting Nader on this site, maybe only because I am an ISU alum, I don't think DA looks like a bone head if he only owes 450k to Nader and the other years aren't guaranteed. With all of the other wings on our team, I wouldn't be shocked to not see Abdel not back this season.
I will probably need to throw my ISU support to Niang (jazz), Burton (OKC), Morris (Denver for now) and hope one of those guys makes their teams roster.
