Bostjan Nachbar Signs Deal with Dynamo Moscow for $14.3 Million


 The Nets New Jersey Nets  say hello to Keyon Dooling and say goodbye to one of the true good guys in their locker room in recent years, Boki Nachbar.

Nachbar, a 6-9, 28-year-old forward, has agreed to a three-year offer -– "a once in a lifetime deal," Nachbar said — with Dynamo Moscow, which apparently is trying to become the Yankees New York Yankees of Russia.

"They’re really trying to put together a top-flight, high-caliber team committed to winning," Nachbar said today. "They’ve got some of the best European players."

And they’re paying the big bucks. Nachbar is getting three years at $14.3 million, but he estimates it’s more like three years for $30 million due to exchange rates and tax implications.

"For starters, here you lose half to taxes," he said.

And they’re paying him in Euros.
