In a stunning move, Bibby, whom the Wizards acquired from Atlanta last week in a trade for Kirk Hinrich, gave up his entire salary for next season. The 32-year-old point guard had one year and $6.2 million left on his deal.

"He sacrificed some money in order to win a championship," said David Falk, Bibby's agent.

Bibby will clear waivers on Wednesday. While Falk said Bibby has not made a decision yet about which team he will join, one source close to the situation said he's headed to Miami.

The source also said Miami is the front-runner for Troy Murphy.
Have to give Bibby credit. Pretty rare for a player to give up the guaranteed dough for a chance to win a ring. If these two do end up in Miami, I wonder who Danny will sign and how he'll spin it.

After the jump, Marc Stein reports that the Celtics are going to go after the soon to be bought out Corey Brewer.

  1. I'm not sure if I believe Miami is the frontrunner for both. But I do agree that the is a commendable move by Bibby.

    those god damn clowns. have they seen the heat match up against us? if this is true then they are dumber than i thought. don't they realize that with their help, we'd only be more likely to beat miami, but if they go to miami, there's still no certainty that they can beat us?

    all im saying is that if you really are interested in winning a championship, how can you favor miami over boston? it just doesnt make sense.

    If Miami gets both Murphy and Bibby I'll buy a Delorean, go to Feb 24th 14:00, give up all sorts of communications and live happily ever after.

  5. At some point we get tired of this media circus of running after deadbeats.
    If "do nothing in Atlanta" Bibby wants to join us, Fine.
    If not, no problem....let's move on.
    And, if "3-pts a game for the Nets" Frail Murphy wants to join us, fine. If not.....move on to some real players who are ready to put their nose to the grind for the next World Champions Boston Celtics.

    Forget all this talk about who wants to go where.
    If Bibby and Murphy ends up in Miami...who gives a rat's arse?
    We'll just punish them both in the playoffs en route to our Banner #18.
    Go Green or Go Home !!!

    Brewer shot a respectable 35% from 3 pt land last season. I'd add him for depth. Still can sign a big man and point guard or two big men.

  7. Imran says:

    What do we need Brewer for? Surely Green has that back up 3 spot?

  8. JR says:

    It's a good point Imran. I was just looking at Brewer for insurance and future purposes. As a 15th man. Not very different than Semih was.

  9. Addi E says:

    Then there´s always Dan Gadzuric. Been thinking for long time Corey Brewer would be perfect for our team.

  10. Tim says:

    It would make sense, we have the potential to have roster spots on our team stacked. If we get him it doesn't hurt. I could live without Troy Murphy he averages 3 points...

  11. Anonymous says:

    if bibby signs here we still gotta boo him

  12. tb727 says:

    Brewer is no better than Kedrick Brown or Gerald Green. He's actually arguably worse than them. He's a god-awful player and will contribute nothing.

    Go sign Michael Finley instead.

  13. JAAJ real says:

    @everyone, tell JR to check his email and un ban me, I miss Banner 18, Cfam, Kara, sherri and reean

  14. Can we start a "sign Finley" petition and send it to Ainge?

  15. JAAJ real says:

    look at ur email JR

  16. shelbyl says:

    @Mike Saver

    Why? To make him not sign Finley?

    He might actually take it seriously, thus I don't think it's worth the risk.
