Ware parts ways with Australian club due to looming pay cut

Former NBA guard Casper Ware is done playing in Australia.

Former NBA point guard Casper Ware has opted out of his contract with the Sydney Kings of Australia’s NBL, according to ESPN.

Ware was the highest-paid player in the NBL this past season, but because of the financial strain suffered because of the coronavirus, would be forced to take a 50-percent pay cut, ESPN reported.

Ware, 30, is 5-foot-10 and has spent plenty of time in NBA training camps. He appeared in nine games with the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2013-14 season.

He has also played professionally in China, Italy, Germany and France.
