NBA teams around the league are looking to cut back on expenses during the lockout.
Around the league, it’s starting to get ugly, as the Associated Press reports:
(Charlotte Bobcats) Radio play-by-play announcer Scott Lauer was one of at least seven employees let go by the Bobcats in the past week.
A person familiar with the situation says the Detroit Pistons fired 15 people two weeks ago. The person, who wasn’t authorized to speak about the team’s moves, spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.
The Lakers laid off more than 20 people, other teams are reportedly reducing salary of staff until the lockout ends. It impacts people on virtually every team.
Around the league, there is plenty of pain going around, so far all of it for people who are not involved in the argument between players and owners. And it’s just going to get worse.
