Krepsinis.net: Khimki, the Russian League club that signed Carlos Delfino offered Jorge Garbajosa a 4 million euros NET salary or $6.4 million US NET salary, which is equal to a $10 million gross per year NBA contract.
Here is a quick translation…
Spain’s Newspaper “Marca” report Jorge Garbajosa is choosing Russian league team “Chimki” coached by Kestutis Kemzura. This makes Jorge the 4th highest paid basketball player in Europe only eclipsed by Carlos Delfino, Theodore Papaloukas, and Sarunas Jasikevicius.
