The real question is, how does this effect the Olesz buyout period?
Very positive on that front. The last day of arbitration is Aug. 4, so that's perfect. We just need to settle on that day or let it go to the arbitrator.

Does the buyout period extend until the hearing date? So the Hawks would have to get him cleared by Aug 4?
The way I read it, he needs to be cleared by the Hawks doctor on Aug. 7th or 8th. If there is not a dispute from Olesz, he is bought out. If there is a dispute, Olesz' second opinion doctor and the presumed third neutral party doctor's opinion would ultimately decide whether he is bought out or not. Topher or anyone else, please clarify if needed.
