yes, as per capgeek, he got a signing bonus: http://www.capgeek.com/player/2572

...but he got 0 performance bonuses, which, like i said, is odd for a #18 overall pick (see the mcneill/danault contracts as comparison).

...that's why i was wondering if there was a casual agreement b/w the hawks and teuvo that if he didn't sign for any performance bonuses it would be easier for him to make the team.

re his draft year...if you go to capgeek and do a search of any of the following you'll see that they got some availability for performance bonuses (doesn't mean they'll get the $, just means it's accessible to them): laughton, gaunce, samuelsson

maybe i'm looking at something that is nothing - but it's just interesting that teuvo signed for a ceiling "caphit" which is lower that early hawks prospects signed for and is lower than similar players from the '12 draft.

...this is why i'm wondering if there was some casual conversation that resulted in teuvo signing a contract that didn't carry the same available cap hit of other contracts.
