Bibby out of DC

32-year old Mike Bibby was obviously not happy playing for a bottom-level team in the Washington Wizards.

Point guard Mike Bibby gave up his entire 2012 salary to be bought out from his new team, the Washington Wizards. Bibby was traded from the Atlanta Hawks last week for fellow point guard Kirk Hinrich. Bibby was expected to take over Hinrich’s role of mentor to rookie phenom John Wall. This is a very rare situation where an athlete is willing to give up a whole year’s salary to be bought out. Early indications are that Bibby would like to go and likely will go to the Miami Heat, but nothing is certain yet. Bibby was owed $6.2 million next year.
