Why Nuggets claimed Shavlik Randolph

UPDATE: The Nuggets have indeed claimed Shavlik Randolph and this will move the team from $1,863,342 under the minimum floor to $635,357 beneath the threshold. The Nuggets now have a full 15-man roster.

Should the Nuggets not reach the minimum team salary floor, the difference will be sent to the NBPA and they will distribute the money among the players.

--------------------

The Boston Celtics waived forward Shavlik Randolph on Monday and then used the open roster spot to sign guard Chris Babb. While there is just a week remaining on the 2014-15 regular season schedule, there is a chance Randolph will be claimed off waivers by a team who isn't heading to the playoffs.
