Bobcats get Brendan Haywood
After Haywood was waived by the Mavericks
NBA.com reported the Bobcats' winning bid was just more than $2 million, which means Dallas must pay roughly $6.3 million of Haywood's $8.3 million salary in 2012-13.
Releasing Haywood via amnesty wiped the $27.2 million he's owed over the next three seasons off the Mavericks' books for salary-cap and luxury-tax purposes. The Bobcats now will assume more than $6 million of that financial obligation.
