Deadline for 2006 Extensions… Extended
Posted by r1zzo23 on October 30, 2009
From Marc Stein:
The league has pushed the deadline for contract extensions for all players from the 2006 draft class from Saturday to Monday, league spokesman Tim Frank confirmed Thursday night.
NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com that all 30 teams were notified via league memorandum earlier this week that the league’s annual Oct. 31 deadline for players in the fourth year of their rookie-scale contracts, according to the collective-bargaining agreement, is moved to the next available business day if the deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday or federal holiday.
Well that’s a nice little rule to have for these GMs that have failed to extend their possible future franchise players. With that said, I’m not sure how much this will help the situation between the Celtics and Rondo. I’m pretty certain that a deal will not get done, but I have been known to be wrong (hard to believe, I know). I guess we can keep our fingers crossed that this deal gets done, but I wouldn’t get too excited about it.
