Signs for the max. Will be the ROY.
Trey signs with Jazz.
Why is that number so specific?
Trey makin' bank. What's Morris's contract worth?
He played well when he was in there
I hear the Pistons are looking for a point guard.
Those who stay...
I can't wait for the lakers and celtics to miss the playoffs next year.
And get Wiggins and Randle.
Stern is retiring. Don't think Adam SIlver has the pull just yet. If the Knicks win the lottery (Silver is from New York) though?? /Silvered???
silver has been sterns deputy for years he has the pull
They are filled with my urine. So yeah, I piss excellence.
they probably don't sell them in Utah anyway.
Reference. Also look up how basically Jay-Z invested in a brand of so-so champagne and made it huge. Great marketing.
almost 7500 in tax.
And people say that athletes do give back.
How much does one of those cost?
The rookie salary max is set by the NBA and is determined by the draft pick number. Check it out: http://www.hoopsworld.com/2012-13-rookie-salary-scale
On top of whatever GQ paid him to do that modeling spread.
Seems as though there's more money to be made in professional sports. Maybe I should have gone that route.
One of the more interesting features of the NBA CBA is the great gory detail of the sections detailing player compensation. Most first-round picks sign at the 120% level, which is the max level for a rookie contract, or in other words, 1.2 times the maximum salary of that particular pick. For the 2013-14 season, the max salary for the 9th pick happens to be $2,032,000, which explains his first-year salary.
Here's a site which does a pretty good job of breaking down the math of rookie contracts, if you're interested - (HERE). This even goes into how a qualifying offer would work , so if the Jazz should be in a position to make Burke a restricted free agent in a few years, you could actually calculate what their offer would need to be.
That's not fair. Morris was never near as talented as Burke....Remember Burke is POY. If Morris stayed, do you really think he was going to be anywhere close to the quality of player as Burke? People need to get over him leaving early, bc he was never going to be as good as Burke and get that lottery type of money. He did what was best for him.
He made $962,185 last year, which was only a little bit less than what Jimmy Butler, the last first rounder from Morris' draft, made at $1,066,920.
Morris will probably sign for $884,293 this year, with a second year next year that will be either non-guaranteed or partially guaranteed, but will be for $948,163 if he makes it the team. He might make a slight amount more than that if he re-signs with the Lakers, but he's probably destined to be a minimum-salary player for the rest of his career (which isn't bad, because those salaries I listed are the minimums for players with his level of experience).
Not too shabby. Hopefully, the next time he has to negotiate a contract, the numbers will be even bigger.
Yeah but have you seen Aaron Craft's defense?
Does it really matter? The guys going to be a brain surgeon and play in the NBA at the same time.
UM hoops reporting they chose Millet
Man, looks like I picked the wrong profession
Is Paying Josh Smith 7x this much! So he must be better than Trey.
Considering Smith has at least shown some ability in the NBA while Burke is still an unknown, I'd kind if hope he'd get more.
But I see what you did there...
For those who have NBA TV, Trey and the Utah Jazz are playing at one today.
