Chris Anderson open to signing vet minimum with Heat

Chris Andersen is amenable to signing a veteran’s minimum deal with Miami.

Andersen was released earlier this summer by the Nuggets and will still collect $4.5 million next season under the league's amnesty provision.

Mehh, fact is there isn't a market out there at all right now for Anderson. All teams can offer him a Vet minimum contract and if Miami is one of those teams and he chooses to go there good fort him I guess. Now if he turned down a 3yr/15mil contract to sign with Miami on a vet min I'd be pissed. But he isn't getting more anywhere else. As for amnesty, it helps cash strapped teams and had to be implemented before the massive tax hikes start kicking in next year.

independent of that, I think it's ridiculous that players that are still on a team's payroll are allowed to play for somebody else. At the very least, the original team should be asked for final approval on any move that player makes while under contract.

Maybe if the team amnestying the player continues to provide NBA quality training, NBA quality medical treatment, and NBA quality practise time against NBA-caliber players.

But even that might be a stretch for the player's association, and rightly so.

I believe the amnestying team gets repatriated a portion of the new contract. Everybody wins, the team doesn't have to pay the luxury tax, and the player gets paid what he is owed.

I know the reasons long term for the tax. I'm just commenting on the short ramifications.

I think none of those perks are contractual

they do make some money, which is why they should have a say in it. As a team, Denver might be willing to let Anderson go to Toronto for 500k than LA for 2 million, even though they would make more money in the 2nd scenario.

Or, alternatively, once a player chooses to play somewhere else, they forfeit their previous salary, then they are free to do whatever they want. You can't have it both ways.

Good points though I highly doubt the NBAPA would agree to it. Regardless we are only talking at most 30 players IF every team uses the amnesty rule which is not likely. Short term advantage over long term gain.

After some additional thinking, I changed my mind
The realist is that andersen was actually amnestied, not bought out. If any other team had any interest in him, he would have been picked up, so once he clears the waivers, he should be free to go anywhere.

I still think that for players who get bought out, there should be, at the very least, a waiver-like interval where teams have a shot at him in order of their total salaries (lowest payroll teams coming first).
