Holmes signed a 2-year, $10 million contract with the Sacramento Kings yesterday. Nowhere near what a lot of the NBA guys are getting lately, but that's a whole lot of money to guys like me. Congrats to Richaun!

I haven’t paid muck attention to the NBA for years and never on their salaries. This contract is for adding depth, a backup up front, which is eye popping to me. Apparently Richaun has carved out his niche in the league. Congrats to him.

The mid level exception has created a lot of opportunity for bench guys to score contracts in that range even if the team signing them is over the cap.
It's not the fall that hurts...it's when you hit the ground.

I'm overjoyed for Richaun.

I believe the Richaun has yet to find a good NBA situation where he can thrive. In Philly and Phoenix, he was stuck behind marquee rookies. In Sacramento, he may have more room to break out.

Hopefully Richaun will have better luck staying off the injured list.
