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.
巫师今天从马刺交易Davis Bertans过来 (包含Carroll的篮网/马刺/巫师三方交易)
使得巫师已越过豪华税线 (现在已经是 $133.26M，豪华税线是 $132.627M)
所以巫师释出 Jonathon Simmons，他合约 $5.7M 中只有 $1M是保障，
所以可以释放 $4.7M 的空间，以避免掉要缴豪华税的命运...
心得： Jonathon Simmons 还不错啊，看要上哪台车，预约一下啊
