Correct me if I'm wrong tho.
Splitter is, but the other guy is a rookie right now. Drafted a couple of years ago.
It was too late for Scola to come over after this year because the new contract that he would have signed was going to have an insane, crazy, ridiculous buyout number. His buyout was only 3 million when the Rockets acquired him. That's why all the league execs. were saying, "It's now or never with Scola." That's why the Spurs practically gave him away so they could get at least something.
I don't know how much Udoka makes. If he makes what Scola makes, it doesn't make sense, but I am under the impression that he makes about half of what Scola makes.
