Jonathon Simmons Released By Wizards
The Wizards have waived Jonathon Simmons, tweets Candace Buckner of The
Washington Post. He had just a $1MM guarantee on his $5.7MM salary for next
Washington acquired Simmons along with the 42nd pick in a draft-day trade
with the Sixers, sending cash considerations in return. The Wizards used that
pick to select Admiral Schofield of Tennessee.
Simmons, 29, went undrafted out of Houston in 2012, but was able to earn a
spot on the Spurs‘ roster in 2015. He was impressive enough in San Antonio
to earn a three-year, $20MM contract from the Magic in 2017. Simmons played a
combined 56 games this season between Orlando and Philadelphia, averaging 6.5
points per night.
By parting ways with Simmons, Washington will gain a little breathing room
below the luxury-tax line. Having acquired Davis Bertans from the Spurs
earlier today, the Wizards projected to be a possible taxpayer, but removing
Simmons’ $4.7MM partial guarantee from their books alleviates that concern
Assuming he goes unclaimed on waivers, Simmons will become an unrestricted
free agent early next week.
巫師今天從馬刺交易Davis Bertans過來 (包含Carroll的籃網/馬刺/巫師三方交易)
使得巫師已越過豪華稅線 (現在已經是 $133.26M，豪華稅線是 $132.627M)
所以巫師釋出 Jonathon Simmons，他合約 $5.7M 中只有 $1M是保障，
所以可以釋放 $4.7M 的空間，以避免掉要繳豪華稅的命運...
心得： Jonathon Simmons 還不錯啊，看要上哪台車，預約一下啊
