Spears: Mike Bibby Possibly Seeking Buyout, Blazers Among Suitors?

31
Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports... --------------------- Washington Wizards guard Mike Bibby: The Wizards acquired Bibby in a trade that sent Kirk Hinrich to the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday, and sources close to the veteran point guard said he wasn’t happy about going from a playoff team to a rebuilding situation. One league source said Bibby might try to pursue a buyout even though he’s owed $6.4 million next season, in addition to the remainder of this season’s $5.8 million salary. The potential hang-up: Unless Bibby surrenders significant money, the Wizards might want to keep him. If Bibby becomes a free agent, the Miami Heat, Celtics, Portland Trail Blazers and New York Knicks could line up as suitors. --------------------- Michael Lee of the Washington Post reported on Thursday that a buyout isn't a certainty, quoting Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld. --------------------- "I think it's unlikely something like that would happen," Grunfeld said of a buyout. "I never shut the door on anybody talking to us." --------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
