We had many "cap holds " that year but to increase the offer to Turkoglu we had to renounce some of them with AP being one of them. I remember that BC was trying to leave enough room to re-sign AP - as he really wanted him back - but he had already tentatively signed with the Cavs. I remember a radio interview with BC where he said that it wasn't a done deal with him to the Cavs but the later that night or the next day it was too late and he signed with them.

I too, was hoping to have him back as a vet this year to mentor the younger guys, but I wish him all the best in retirement and hope he finds a job somewhere in basketball...preferably with us.
