Rafer Alston’s Contract Getting Bought Out

From Adrian Wojnarowski’s twitterpage:

Rafer Alston has agreed to a contract buyout with Nets, and Heat and Cavs lead list of possible suitors for free agent, sources tell Y!

Remember that post Mark did this morning, and how a lot of those rumors had to do with a roster spot getting open?  Well here is that spot kids, look for more action to be coming in the near future.

I am assuming this to be true as Wojnarowski is usually spot on with everything.  The Rafer experiment didn’t really work out, and I can see Rod and Kiki buying him out because they couldn’t get anything on the trade market.

Update #1: It is being reported by Adrian as official.

Update #2: Dave D chimes in with a quote from Rafer’s agent

“We’ve reached an agreement in principle regarding a buyout for Rafer,” agent Dan Fegan said in a phone conversation.
