Duncan's contract numbers in, about what we expected
 
We've know for a couple of weeks that Tim Duncan had signed a three year deal with the San Antonio Spurs and various numbers were tossed out, but finally thanks to Express News' Mike Monroe, we have the final figures.

"Duncan, whose contract last season called for him to be paid $21.2 million, will get $9.65 million next season and $10.4 million in 2013-14. The final season of the three-year deal, at Duncan’s option, is for an even $10 million."

9.6 million huh? Sounds about right...what do you think Jose?

I think the guys is amazing, and gave away millions of dollars to stay with the Spurs.

He could have signed a 3 yr 40 mil deal easily. . . . . .



Maybe 50 mil if he went to Houston.

It is more than fair, Duncan is my new hero!!

It was lower than I thought it would be but of course not the 7 million forecasted on here. He kept them under the luxury tax. So that's good.

If anyone thought he would agree to or is worth only 7 million they are on crack. He's underpaid by about 2 million the first two years and probably overpaid the last.

the last one is a player option, so if we win (here's to hoping) he might not even exercise the option. heck if we win next year, he might not even see the next 2 years of the deal. overall, it was a better deal than KG's (even if they are about the same after KG's taxes kick in) because i don't think Garnett would retire after winning a title if they were to.

And he's already back in the gym shooting and getting ready for next season.

God Bless you, Tim Duncan, for the sacrifices you make for this team.

katyspursfan 07-25-12 03:58 PM

Argh! So close.
I went on record saying Timmy would sign for less than $10M a year.
What's fifty grand over three years between friends?

Duncan’s salary cut provides tax relief

Spurs Nation

Before even one game of the Spurs’ 2012-13 season is contested, Tim Duncan already has made a significant contribution to the team’s success.

By accepting an $11.5 million cut from the $21.15 million salary he earned last season, Duncan enabled the club to re-sign its most coveted free-agent players, add 2009 draftee Nando De Colo and still drop below the NBA’s projected luxury-tax threshold for next season.

According to contract figures that have been officially released to all NBA teams, Duncan will be paid $9.64 million in the first season of the three-year deal he signed July 11.

After being the third-highest paid player in the league last season, behind only Lakers star Kobe Bryant ($25.24 million) and Boston’s Kevin Garnett ($21.25 million), Duncan next season will be the fourth-highest paid Spur.

All player salaries last season were pro-rated to account for the 66-game post-lockout season.

Veteran guard Manu Ginobili, at $14.1 million, will be San Antonio’s highest-paid player next season, followed by All-NBA point guard Tony Parker ($12.5 million), veteran guard-forward Stephen Jackson ($10.06 million) and Duncan.

A two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, the 36-year-old Duncan will see his salary rise to $10.36 million for the 2013-14 season. The team captain is guaranteed $10 million for the 2014-15 season, but he has an opt-out clause.

After the NBA’s moratorium on free-agent contract signings ended July 11, the Spurs in short order announced they had new agreements with Duncan, veteran big man Boris Diaw, guard Danny Green and point guard Patty Mills.

The club also signed De Colo, currently in London with the French national team for the Olympic tournament that begins Sunday.

The official details of Green’s contract call for the shooting guard from North Carolina to receive $3.5 million next season, $3.76 million in 2013-14 and $4.03 million in 2014-15. Green, who came to training camp last season without a guaranteed deal, started 38 games last season. He made 43.6 percent of his 3-point attempts, eighth-best in the league, and averaged 9.1 points per game.

Diaw, signed March 23 after being bought out of the remainder of a $9 million contract with the Charlotte Bobcats, signed to a two-year deal that will start at $4.5 million next season and jump to $4.69 million in 2013-14.

Mills, the Australian-born veteran who joined the Spurs late last season, will be paid $1.09 million next season under terms of the deal he signed July 13. The second year of Mills’ deal, at the team’s option, is at $1.14 million.

De Colo’s two-year contract is for $1.4 million next season and $1.46 million in 2013-14.

The five recent signings give the Spurs 14 players with guaranteed contracts for next season, at a total of $69.13 million. That is safely beneath the projected luxury-tax threshold, unchanged from last season’s $70.307 million.

The Spurs are reported to have exceeded last season’s tax threshold by $2.5 million.

Even with the Olympics fast approaching, Duncan's sacrifice seems to be gaining national attention in the sports world as it is a featured article on Yahoo. I am curious as to the title of this thread. How did anyone know what to expect? Obviously Tim's contract enables the Spurs to surround him with better and more fun talent as he ends his career but how did you know what to expect? I tend to expect the unexpected.
