Though Olynyk’s contract was widely reported at four years and $50 million, it can be as low as four years and just over $46 million if he doesn’t meet certain incentives. As ESPN’s Bobby Marks reported last week, Olynyk will earn another $1 million this season if he plays 1700 minutes – something he has never done before. Olynyk played between 1395 and 1538 minutes each of his four seasons in Boston. Because he fell short of that total last season, this incentive is deemed “unlikely to be earned” for purposes of tabulating Miami’s cap commitments and thus doesn’t need to be factored into Miami’s cap entering the season.
Olynyk said he has had the opportunity to hit the practice court with James Johnson, Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington, Adebayo and Hassan Whiteside, who apparently is becoming a fast friend. “He’s a great guy, a great character, a super nice guy,” he said of their encounters. “But he’s a beast. I’m really excited to play with him and be able to play with a guy of his size and his abilities on the floor, defensively, offensively, on the glass. He’s awesome to be around and [I’m] really looking forward to playing with him.”
