obviously... but Memphis would too... they just aren't going to overexpose themselves unnecessarily. It's good business practice.

it's stupid. he barely plays right now, they could sign him quite cheap. What if due to injuries he plays a lot more this season and ups his value?

You see it that way, but it's also greater flexibility to trade him.... the less he is owed, the more value he has.

Right now his value is pretty low. I doubt he'd break the bank.

Who knows what his agent is demanding..... you're just looking at it from one side in saying that.

What's so bad about allowing a guy to get to RFA?

if you always play it safe, you'll lose in the long run. A lot of teams have chosen not to prematurely overpay young players before RFA.

you could end up paying even more in ufa, it goes both ways. if they love what they see with him they'd sign him now at a low rate. I could see him ending up in SA.

I feel bad for Ed. He was just coming into his own here and hasn't really been given a chance (surprisingly) in MEM.

Edit: nvm lol....... For some reason I thought it was about talking, not physical play

It's not about talking, Davis hit Motiejunas in the face.
