"It isn't about 1.7 million. It's about the big picture, and how it increases Joe's overall spending power in the free agent market as well as the trade market this summer. Some of you are overlooking the forest for the trees." Cloud Exactly. Those making the argument that we should keep a guy that isn't going to play 6 minutes a game and bypass an opportunity to use the additional funds to sign an impact player are myopic. Same with the idea of packaging him with some combination of our picks tomorrow to move up in the draft, for what? Outside of maybe 3 guys there aren't any guys in there more valuable than a free agent that will deliver 18-8 or 20-9 a night. I'd take the young proven veteran 6 days out of 7.
