Except that they have Juwann Howard, Shane Battier, Steve Novak and Scott Padgett at power forward.

For 24 minutes per game, CWebb is a good fit. Then Juwann and the other guys can split those minutes.

Otherwise, I can see him fitting in with San Antonio, who can then trade Jackie Butler to the Hawks for Esteban Batista.

I really dont see howard or hayes as being that much quicker (ok Hayes clearly is). But I think Webb could be effective on that team. I agree against the suns you would get killed on the break, but most nights, I think they would be fine.

The Sixers really should just go ahead and keep CWebb for this year, and then next year try to trade him.

A superstar always becomes available.

If the Lakers had kept Brian Grant, they could have offered his expirer and something else for Allen Iverson.

If the Knicks had kept Jalen Rose and Maurice Taylor, they could have tried to get AI or KG (if he becomes available).

So instead of paying him $42mil they will pay him $37?

Thats not a buyout thats robbery. And it still hits the damn cap. So you're not saving money. Oh you saved $5mil. Thats the eqivalent of saying $5 off a $60 video game. I mean thanks but ok.

He should go to SA, Dallas, NJ, Detroit, or Miami. Hate to see him go to LA though, it wouldn't seem right.

He'd be great on the Lakers but I bet he goes to SA looking for a ring...

So with him making a life supply worth of money....does that mean he will sign with a team for the minimum?

I think there is a rule that he has no choice but to take a set deal. Forget how it works. Finley did the same thing.

The deal will provide the Sixers with some salary-cap and luxury-tax relief and will clear a roster spot. Coupled with the release of rookie Steven Smith last week, the roster would stand at 13, two below the league limit

Reporters are such wimpy dumbass losers.

This guy is correct, the move will give some salary cap and luxury tax releif. This dickhead reporter, likely because he does not know the rules, does not qualify his poor reporting. He does not tell the reader that the cap releif is the $5mill discount Webber took. He does not educate the reader that the remaining $37million of Webber's salary will come off next year - as originally scheduled.

...as a sidenote, a buyout is the single dumbest thing a team can do.

As a mavs fan I can tell you that the finley situation was a little different because the amnesty clause was different than a regular buyout. The amnesty players were still paid all of whatever the old contract was but 1/2 of whatever they got from the new team was sent to the old team. I know normally when you cut a player with a guaranteed contract you are forced to pay them all of what you owed them - whatever the new team pays them so the player ends up making the same whether they get a minimum contract or 1 dollar less than whatever they were making, its just a matter of who is paying it.

As to this particular one i believe that he will be the same in that anything he gets will end up going back to the sixers. Could be wrong though.

1. He didnt want to play for the Sixers anymore. And the word is he wasnt being a leader/good sport in the lockeroom. Had a negative attitude.

2. Teams werent offering much for Webber in a trade. Sixers want to clear cap room, take back expirers and that wasnt being offered. They werent going to trade for players who had crappy deals just to move Webber then be forced to shop those players elsewhere because....it defeats the purpose of clearing cap space/rebuilding. Webber's value wasnt great and to move him you had to include a young player which Sixers refused.

3. So now you're sitting there with a player who doesnt have much value in a trade and doesnt care to play anymore for your team. Only option is to let him continue to sit and hope his influence is minimal at best or buy him out.

4. What would Joey ZaZa's do?
