I am going to assume Gilbert isn’t hurting financially because he is still being paid millions by the Magic, even though he isn’t playing.
Maybe that is why he is pushing back against the verbal agreement he made with the Chinese team Guangdong.
According to Pro Basketball Talk, Gilbert doesn’t like the payment schedule they have set up for him. Normally what that means is he wants all his money upfront the team prefers to spread it out.
Why do they want to spread it out you may ask? It is reported they have serious concerns about Gilbert being in shape and ready to make an immediate impact if signed.
Deal still might get done but isn’t looking likely at this point.
