sounds good to me.
BTW, this is what I stuck in the rule regarding retirement (for whatever reason). So pretty close to NBA, eh?
5.5 RETIRED PLAYER
If a player retires from the NBA while still under contract, this contract is made void during the off season following his retirement.
The same thing happened with Yao.
Yes, it did.
And even though I eventually made a deal moving Yao, it was a LOT of back and forth with Kal about how the whole thing was going to hit my cap space.
We used to have a rule in place for this type of situation, but there was just too much math - between playing games last season and this season, and having to be under 40-something games played, and all this other crap. I think it should simple - cnote should get the choice whether to amnesty Roy's contract, or have his contract fall under the new retirement rule dasein refers to. Then, it will just be a decision whether to carry Roy's salary for this season only, or dump it to free up cap space.
But I definitely think he shouldn't be forced to make that decision until we hear official word from Roy. As with Yao, that could be today, or it could be 3 months from now. However
, cnote should have the choice available to him if he wants it simply given the circumstances.
