Default Hawks forget to waive Salmons; contract guaranteed?

From RealGM (Don't kill me mods)

RealGM • View topic - OT: Salmons Wasn't Waived, Contract Possibly Guranteed Now

So yeah... apparently the Hawks seem to have missed the agreed upon deadline to waive Salmons and his whole contract is guaranteed. Hawks board shitting themselves.

EDIT: Best comment, "Atlanta must of had their timekeeper counting the hours."

Hasn't been confirmed, he probably got waived and they haven't reported it. No one is that dumb that they just forget it.

lol if true, but probably not, hawks are an extreme budget team, they never have a full arena, can't be making much...they probably hired someone just to make sure they waived salmons in time

You know I'd believe this if this offseason hadn't been the most over-reported in NBA history.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

As planned, the Hawks requested waivers on John Salmons Thursday. The team made the announcement Friday morning.

The Hawks traded Lou Williams and the draft rights to Lucas Nogueira to the Raptors in exchange for Salmons and a 2015 second-round draft pick last month.

The Hawks had a deadline of 11:59 p.m. Thursday to waive Salmons. The teams agreed to a waiver deadline extension of Thursday in the deal. Salmons, who is due $7 million this season, will receive a $1 million buyout. The move clears salary cap space for the Hawks. The team has approximately $11 million in salary cap space.

The waited until near the deadline to request waivers on Salmons as they explored options to acquire another asset, either a player or a draft pick, in a trade.
As expected, the Salmon has indeed been waived.

Tell that to Anthony Carter's agent.

What if Anthony Carter had remembered to exercise his Heat player option 10 years ago? - Hot Hot Hoops
