Celtics If the Pistons buyout Hamilton, could he be Boston bound?

Richard Hamilton will have to be willing to give back a significant portion of the two years, $25 million owed him to get a buyout on his contract. Sources said the Celtics still remain intrigued with Hamilton as a scorer off the bench.

if you weighted the Boston age by minutes they play, you'd get a higher number
Edit, did the calcs, only marginally higher, still under 30

BOS starters average age is 30.4 Bench is all right. Except Shaq, 38.
For comparison :
DAL starters average age is 31.8
LAL starters average age is 30.4
CLE starters average age is 28
MIA starters average age is 28
TOR starters average age is 24.4

If I already made my money, I'll take a championship every time.

Championships = legacy
Money = ?????

This would be ridiculous, not so far-fetched though.

claudius, they arent talking about a few mil...giving up close to 20 mil is asking a lot, especially given hes 33 and his physical abilities are diminishing....

and there is no way getting a championship with the celtics is going to solidify his legacy....i just dont see it...is it going to define JO's or Shaq's legacy if they wins a championship with the celtics? i dont think so....

How much money has Rip already made? He's got his.

Listen, if I had 30 million already in my account and I had the chance to win another championship, I don't think I'd hesitate. How many players don't even have the chance to get 1? He'd have a legit chance at another 1 and possibly 2.

Yeah, I'd take that in a second. And it is his legacy. Legacy to family. Legacy to the game. When you go back and you look at rosters of teams that win championships, you see the players names there. They'll ALWAYS be on that team. No one can take it away.

Who'll remember you signed a contract for x amount of dollars though?

FWIW Rip has already made about 75-80 million dollars in his career.

Considering how many professional sports players go broke after their career has ended, I would think they would be inclined to take the cash! Unless you're Latrell Sprewell, who was insulted by the offer given by the Twolves...since he needed more money to feed his family...

Damn, it's only a NBA ring, not a olympic gold or something greatest in the world. And man, there is no guarantees you get that ring...
15-20M dollars... Do you guys understand it's 15000000$

It's like

He also will not be giving up $20,000,000. What exactly he loses will depend on the new CBA but he'll still get a decent contract when the next free agent negotiations begin, especially if he plays a pivotal role in helping the Celtics win a championship.

Keep in mind that he is also dreadfully unhappy in Detroit. It might be worth it to him just to get the heck out of there.
