Slaughter-Northport contract impasse
Northport says Greg Slaughter is asking for more than the maximum salary.
“My rights are held by Northport who has ceased communication with me about staying in the PBA. This is why I was not able to finish the conference with Northport,” Slaughter posted on social media.
Northport team manager Bonnie Tan said they have made an offer and showed proof of the documents.
“We have an offer to him. I’ve communicated with him through email and even sent him the contract through courier,” added the NorthPort official when asked by SPIN.ph about claims made by Slaughter on social media on Sunday.
But Tan noted the 33-year-old Slaughter is demandng more than the maximum salary allowed in the PBA.
“He wants the highest salary in the PBA,” said Tan.
The monthly cap for a player is P420,000.
The Governors’ Cup eliminations stretched to March and Northport made an impressive run without Slaughter, stringing five straight wins before missing out on the quarterfinals.
