Well, yes. But the Celtics have an open roster spot and money to spend. The argument was, that if a guy like Faried were offered the minimum, he wouldn't come because there wouldn't be enough playing time.I think the point is that players have no choice but to look to Europe (or China) if NBA teams aren't even willing to offer them a minimum contract. It's either that or sit around and hope you get a call when someone on another team gets injured or traded, but then you're not making any money in that period.
