You might be right that a few playesr elect to stick with current contracts, like, say Trevor Ariza or Kirilenko, who already make decent coin at 7 and 10 mill respectively. But a number of guys like Mayo, J.R. Smith, and Carl Landry will opt out and get paid. If the revenue projection is accurate, it frees up significant cap space league wide.
Thought I could change that before you saw it but nope...well played sir. Well played. :cookie:

I see where you went with that regarding players like JR, mayo, etc. both those Cats are playing themselves into a potential payday that is conceivably excessive to what they would have gotten. Brilliant really and makes sense - I was wondering why those and others were taking such small and short contracts...

Nice point out Bill.

Ah, sorry. I didn't want to let you down by failing to keep a high standard for my nit-picking! :cookie:

Anyway, we'll see what happens in July.
