Yes. They're paying him nothing. If he had played he would have gotten 60/162 of his salary.
Guess I don't get why that is a reason for the owners to be "really motivated to not have a season".
Sure, not having a season would save the paying salaries. What does that have to do with there being a season but a few players deciding to sit out?
Well if I am understanding you correctly, if an expensive player decides not to play this season, he doesn’t get paid. That means the owners are saving that expense. Price’s contract is 7/210 I think, so the owner is saving 30 M right?
or rather a prorated “60 games worth” of 30 M?
