【Guide】In early August, Oden joined the Heat and made a big impact in the league. Recently, Oden brought you another
According to insiders, the contract between Oden and the Heat is only one year, which is different from the two-year contract mentioned earlier.
Subsequently, Oden’s agent also confirmed the matter, and said it was Oden’s personal wish.
Although Oden has not appeared on the court for a long time due to injury, his popularity remains undiminished. As Oden announced his comeback this summer, many teams actively sought him out. In the end, Oden signed a contract with the Heat.
At the time of signing, the media reported that the contract between Oden and the Heat was for two years, worth 2.17 million US dollars, and the second year was a player option.
But I didn’t expect that the real contract was that Oden and the Heat signed a one-year guaranteed basic salary contract of 1.02 million. There was nothing else, it was as simple as that.
This contract is extremely beneficial for the Heat; it is also good for Oden, at least the pressure of playing in the Heat is relatively low, with the Big Three supporting him, he can have both competition and recovery.
If the contract expires, Oden also has the opportunity to find another development, but the premise is that he can remain healthy. Otherwise, the 13-14 season may become his last time in the NBA.
So when this contract was first exposed, some people thought it was a conspiracy by the Heat.
A few days ago, Oden’s agent said that the reason for changing the contract was because Oden felt that it would be better for both parties and would be beneficial to both sides.
First of all, a one-year contract is more beneficial to Oden, not only taking into account the game and rehabilitation, but the NBA will also agree to rule on the accidental injury clause in Oden’s contract; at the same time, if Oden cannot remain healthy in the new season, this will not give
The Heat create a burden.
Analyzing the two contracts before and after, the difference lies in the contract options for the second year.
The previous contract gave Oden an extra guarantee. Even if his injury relapsed, he would still be paid for the second year.
And Oden gave up, indicating that he has full confidence in his health.
