    Do we have to pay Gordon his contract if he sits out the season?

    Simple question do we have to pay Gordon 1/3 of his contract?
    And does it count as one of his contract years? Or does it start once he starts playing?

    No, we have to pay it all. It counts towards contract years. We can not amnesty.

    "I don't know if people know — I dislocated my pinkie finger. And [Tyreke] told me, 'You wanna go home or you wanna be here?' I want to be here. And he said, 'All right, then go tape it up and let's play. Let's go. We not stoppin' at no stores. Straight gas. That's what we do, just keep going.'"

    As I understand it, the Hornets will be paying him $58M over the next four years even if he never plays another game.

    This is basically the case. If he retires, we can get some relief on the cap, but it won't help Benson out as much.

    That's why hold-outs work.
