FanHouse: Tomasson: Jason Collins Expected To Re-Sign With Hawks

They weren't kidding about "bulky."

Signing Jason Collins for the nine-year veteran minimum will cost $1,229,255 on paper, but the league will reimburse $374,866 of that to the Hawks and that $374,866 will not count as team salary should the Hawks go over the luxury tax line.

Jason Collins 2009-10 Season Review, quoted in full:
115 minutes, 21 fouls, 16 points, 14 rebounds, and 4:49 of useful basketball. It appears I may have overestimated what Collins had left.

You can't tell me we can't find someone on the street or in the D-League to do what he does for less money.

He's basically an assistant coach, with a ~25% of salary being paid by the NBA.

Enjoy that thought, Hawks' fans.
