Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 55

– Jason Richards
Davidson guard Richards’ first professional season was a washout. He joined the Miami Heat for training camp, but blew his knee out in practice and missed the entire year. In doing so, his contract became guaranteed.
While there are no rules against a team releasing an injured player, players with unguaranteed contracts are paid by the team until they are healthy. Therefore, because Richards missed the whole year, the Heat had to pay his whole year’s salary. …
The Purpose Of Waiving Deron Washington Was….I Don’t Know.
October 27th, 2009
Yesterday, the Detroit Pistons waived 2008 second-round draft pick and flopper extraordinaire, Deron Washington. They had initially signed him back in August to be their 14th and last man, giving him a two-year minimum salary deal with $250,000 guaranteed in the first season.

August 1st, 2009
– Darius Rice has left the immortally named Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants from the Phillipines, and is about to sign with Montegranaro in Italy. I think that translates as “Bread Mountain”. I hope it does, anyway.
– A previous blog post talked about how Ivan Radenovic had had his contract with Akasvayu Girona extended. That news is now bunkum, for Girona have gone bankrupt, and are not playing this upcoming season. This leaves Radenovic now unsigned, unattached and undervalued.…
Where Are They Now, 2009; Part 43
March 3rd, 2009
I suppose I ought really ask – are you enjoying these? Really? I’d like some feedback on this. I mean, even if you don’t enjoy them I’m doing them anyway, because despite how tedious it can get trying to find new and exciting ways to list someone’s rebounding averages, I’ve come too far to quit. And I’m also kind of enjoying doing it. But I need to know if you are too. If you’re not, please say so, as your …
