Getting laid off on Christmas Eve sounds much like Dickens "A Christmas Carol". Only this year, Billy King could be Scrooge and Stephen Graham, Bob Cratchit. The Nets must decide by Saturday whether to dump Graham and save themselves $1.1 million, money that could be used for cap space...at the least.
Graham realizes what's going on. "You’ve got guarantees, ups and downs, ins and outs, but the only thing you can do is stay positive, stay in prayer and let it handle itself,' he told Colin Stephenson. The way it works is Graham has a non-guaranteed contract that will pay him $1.1 million this season. It only becomes guaranteed if he is on the roster when the NBA season begins on Christmas Day.
