Four Players Still Getting Paid During The NBA Lockout
But if your Ben Gordon, Zach Randolph, Al Farouq Aminu, and Caron Butler the checks will keep rolling. That's because their agent, Raymond Brothers who spread their 2010-11 NBA salaries over 18 or 24 months in case the lockout forces the cancellation of games.
Smart move by their agent and the players for co-signing the deal.
"They will not know financially that they're in a lockout," Brothers told USA Today.
"If there is a lockout, you'll able to pay your bills."
So while there will be players grumbling about paying child support and car insurance, it won't be from any of these guys.
