    Must have been Dave Rice.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think Royce officially signed yet.

    I believe around $27,200.

    10 days is 1/18th of the 180-day season. Rookie minimum is $490,180. 1/18th of $490,180 is $27,232.

    I could be wrong on the number of days in an NBA season for salary purposes, though. I read somewhere else the number is 170, which would make a rookie minimum 10 day contract worth $28,834. Either way, not too shabby.

    I'd have to look it up to be sure (/lazy), but that 10-day contract might be worth just about as much as an entire typical DL contract.

    Re: Babb to Celtics

    Great for Chris Babb. Hope he makes the most of it and secures a contact for the rest of the season. He always was a great clutch player, but usually at the end of games. Now he has to make clutch plays whenever they decide to give him some minutes.
