The thing is...
The deal was signed in January 2011, and ends in June 2011.
Unless the CBA provides that all deal are deemed to be signed in July, Nabby ends up owing 6 months (or +- 40 games) to the Isles if he doesn't report.
First : How do they manage a "owing" period of 6 months? They allow Nabby to walk in December?
Second : If Nabby is suspended, doesn't play a game, and ends up owing a WHOLE YEAR to the Isles at 550K....
Expect a lawsuit, because it doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
