Only if we kept his cap hold active. And since we need that cap space to sign Fields and make the Lowry trade, we must renounce his rights.

Again, though, like I said, if we are amnestying or trading someone, this can change. Since all this is happening before the 11th, they have room to manoeuvre to do these moves a number of ways.

To your point, if we did use his rights, he would be signed to a 2 year deal starting at $3M (at most). But there would have to be an amnesty or trade (reducing salary) for that to happen.
