   15 More Ten Day Contract Candidates (Because Apparently 101 Wasn't Enough After All)
2011-01-10

Sasha Pavlovic - Several years of poor production finally took their toll, and Sasha was unable to take his 5.4 PER last season and turn it into a new contract. He has not played since, forgoing European basketball offers in favour of trying to get back into the NBA. Even if you don't like PER as a statistic, its uses become obvious when it is considered that Sasha's PER has been above 9.0 only once in his entire NBA career, and even the one "good" year was a below average 12.1. But he does offer size, experience, and the increasingly occasional good outside shooting night.

   Anthony Tolliver earned $273,697 and counting for one day of work, and it's all thanks to Sasha Pavlovic
2013-06-11

[...] Concurrent with these moves, Cleveland was embroiled in the long-since-forgotten-about holdouts of Anderson Varejao and Sasha Pavlovic. Both restricted free agents out of contract that summer, both unhappy with Cleveland's best offer, and yet both seemingly unable to get more on the market, the two held out of training camp, waiting for enormous deals that never came. From memory, Pavlovic wanted roughly six years and $40 million, while Varejao wanted $10 million per annum.

The two held out all through the free agency period, all through training camp, all through preseason, and into the regular season. It is precisely because of this that Tolliver, as well as Demetris Nichols, made the Cavaliers roster that season. Pavlovic was the first to crack - he agreed to re-sign to a partially guaranteed three year $13,696,250 contract that he was waived after only two years of. He signed this contract on October 31st 2007, the second day of the regular season. And when he did so, Tolliver was waived to open up a roster spot.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
