Moe Harkless secures $500,000 bonus by not shooting 3PTS


Moe Harkless secured a $500,000 bonus tonight because he didn't shoot any threes against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Portland Trail Blazers shot 13-30 from downtown, but Moe Money No Problems, didn't shoot any because he wanted to secure that extra paycheck.

Moe has a bonus for this season - if he shot at 35.0% or above from deep, he'd get $500,000. He was at 35.1%.

Last night against the Pelicans, if he missed just one three, he would drop below 35%, but he was smart because he didn't shoot any threes all night long.

Moe played 22 minutes, scoring 5 field goals on 6 attempts, but all from inside the arc. He had 11 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 0-0 from downtown and a $500k paycheck.

Can you imagine if playoff seeding was on the line, and the last shot came down to a 3pt shot to win the game?
