ha! that's true.
But I don't think we were using the MLE on him. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought MLE was only available when you are already above the cap going into the off season? Even if you don't re-sign players to put you above the cap, as long as you already were above the cap. And we weren't above the cap since we got rid of jalen rose and mourning came off the books.
Either way, the possibility of him not wanting to play in Canada doesn't seem far-fetched.
