Mis-Reported: Tim Duncan's new salary deal
 
Tim Duncan’s new three-year deal with the Spurs isn’t for $36 million, as was first widely reported. According to numbers provided by the NBA Players Association, he will earn $30 million, with the third year, at $10 million, at the future Hall of Famer’s option.

ouch. poor guy keeps gettin jipped. most teams woulda given the man his due 36k.

That is hugely underpaying him, considering David Robinson got the same amount per year 10 YEARS AGO. The ultimate team player. He is severely unappreciated in this city.

GOAT for a reason. Class act all the way to the bank!

Not knowing anything about how the salary cap works, does this mean the Spurs have more funds available this year?

it's just $2 mill less a year each year, so not really. it puts us lower than the luxury tax than we thought.

i'd be shocked if it was. Duncan for $10 million would've been talked about like crazy on the board. everyone assumed he got the same as KG ever since they both signed.

that was a false rumor. KG has always been a cap killer though.

Silly me. I even made a comment in the thread started by a nameless moderator who had a mortarboard, but retired it for some other wrestling thing.

I stuck my neck out in another thread saying that Duncan would sign for $10M a year.

edit: I see that Will actually remembered the thread, too (from Jose's quote). Kudos to him.

you were saying he'd sign, Will is saying that it was reported Duncan did sign. 2 different things from your opinion and the fact.

if Duncan's info did leak before that he signed for $10 mill would have been huge news on the board.

Huh? YOU started the quoted thread.
And the quoted article at the beginning of the thread says

Quote:

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.

...

Earlier published reports had put Duncan’s pay package between $34 million and $39 million.
You had a couple comments mid-thread. So, it appears that there was news that Timmy signed for ~$10M/year. But not really huge news.
It was an entirely different thread that I guessed that Timmy would sign for $10M/year.

Will only had memory of the thread (to the best of my knowledge). But, still, kudos.
