      It doesn't just count towards the salary cap, it counts as part of the player's contract. And since rookie scale contracts are a fixed amount, that means any part of the buyout over $500k would have to come right out of Valanciunas's pocket. (unless the buyout rules are different under the new CBA, of course)

        No they cannot. I can guarantee you are 100% incorrect on this matter.

            Those couple hours we thought there was a chance he might come over this season could very well be the most exciting part of this season!

                It was sarcasm... But I can't wait for those 20 point losses to get here as much as I hate them!

                  If he comes over here its an instant rookie of the year. I really hope he comes over
                  Ooooo, I'm a total fan but that might be much of a statement. He's gotta climb over Amir, Ed and Bargs for minutes.

                    article from Slamonline.com

                    As much as I would like Valaciunas to come over this year, I don't see the point. we will need to fill the position with a cheap 1 year contract, maybe a pryzbilla type? I want the young team to develop. I think Bayless has a chance of getting better but its hard for me to see him as a starting point guard, coz his instinct is shoot first. I think he will forever be a good back up. We need to get rid of Caleron, it would be nice if we could package him in a deal that Jordan won't nix. Otherwise we could use the new amnesty clause on him? Though he maybe a good vet to have in the locker room?

                    The Raps need to figure out what they are going to do at the SF position coz its jammed. Ed Davis, Amir Johnson, Bargnani, **Linas Kleiza...

                    I look forward to a short season where our young gunz can develop still do poorly enough to get a top 5 draft pick. wish there were more PG's in the draft next year though, its mainly a bigger men kinda draft.

                      Valaciunas is not coming over. Lithuanian media: " "Lietuvos rytas"sport director Purlys says that "Jonas will definitely stay here till the end of the season. We made an agreement and we are not going to break it."
