HoopsHype Jason Kapono rumors

February 25, 2011 Updates

An NBA source said the Sixers are reluctant to trade Speights, a young big man who has been getting sporadic minutes this season. The Sixers could still buy out Kapono. That would save the Sixers a portion of the money he's owed and allow Kapono to sign with another team. Sources said there wasn't much interest around the league in Kapono, who has been out of Collins' rotation nearly the entire campaign. phillyburbs.com

A source confirmed that many teams are interested in Kapono's shooting ability, should the Sixers agree to buy him out. At today's practice, Sixers coach Doug Collins said if the team did that, it would be for Kapono's sake, but it would also have to make sense for the organization. That's something the organization will consider now that no trades have been executed. Philadelphia Inquirer

One move the Sixers could make is to buy out swingman Jason Kapono's contract. The Sixers would bargain on a price, pay Kapono and give him the opportunity to sign with another team for the rest of the season. His $6.6 million was set to come off the budget after this season anyway and Kapono hasn't been able to find any playing time of late for coach Doug Collins so it might be something they consider.

I’ve been advised that Philadelphia, with its surplus of swingmen, is open to moving sharpshooter Jason Kapono, who has one season left on his contract at $6.6 million. Kapono is a natural target for teams in the hunt for a perimeter specialist with Mike Miller and Kyle Korver getting snapped up early in free agency. ESPN.com
