Several NBA teams are upset by an unusual agreement between the Miami Heat and veteran guard Beno Udrih that will get the team out of paying the luxury tax, sources told ESPN.com.
The Heat agreed to a contract buyout of Udrih, and he was officially waived Monday. The move drops the Heat below the repeater tax line and create a windfall of approximately $2.7 million. It might also help them avoid future luxury-tax penalties because the league punishes repeat taxpayers.
