Nets Sign Todd MacCulloch to Offer Sheet

July 19, 2001

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Restricted free agent center Todd MacCulloch, abackup with the Philadelphia 76ers last season, signed an offer sheet with theNew Jersey Nets.

Nets president Rod Thorn did not release details of the six-year contractThursday, but it will pay MacCulloch $4.2 million this season as a mid-levelsalary cap exception. His salary would jump about 10 percent each year,reaching about $6.8 million in 2007.

While they will have 15 days to match the offer sheet, it is expected the76ers won't because they are over the $42.5 million salary cap after signingDikembe Mutombo and Aaron McKie.

A second-round draft pick in 1999, MacCulloch averaged 4.1 points and 2.7rebounds in 63 games last season.
