    So he can either accept that or seek out another team willing to pay more, and if he can find one, we have the option of matching or letting him walk?

    Sounds like a good amount to me too.

    I'm predicting hundreds of posts here anticipating and discussing all the offers that will come his way. Let's say 300 posts with thousands of views, while we all wait on pins and needles..

    He might sign it. Wasn't this what Bengo did before he screwed over Joe? Took the one year qualifying offer to become an unrestricted free agent? I'm not sure about this but I recall reading something about it a while ago. Or am I mixing him up with someone else?

    Qualifying offer means you are now a Restricted Free agent for said team that signed you to the QO.

    Stuckey is our "boy"...until he gets an offer we won't match.

    I thought the player becomes an unrestricted free agent the year after the QO if he signs it. I'm probably just mixing up stuff.

    In that perspective ....Rasheed wasn't exactly talking nonsense when he was making the insinuations that he made back in the day.

    I'm just sayin'..........

    nah...Stuckey is property of the Pistons until they decide to not match any other offers made to him.

    I know, but I mean when the one year contract is over if he signs it. Will he still be a restricted free agent?

    depends on what he signs......any other team that signs him to a multi-year deal is signing him to a multi-year deal that we can match...if we choose to.

    But that has to be up to Stuckey, right? If he signs the qualifying offer he's signed a deal and no one can match it because he is a signed player? However if he doesn't sign it anyone can offer him a deal of some kind and the Pistons will get him if they match it. And if he signs the qualifying offer he will be an unrestricted free agent next summer? That's how I thought it worked atleast but I don't know anything about this stuff.

    our qualifying offer...we can match WHATEVER he is offered and WHATEVER he signs....3 years 5 years, whatever.


    He is ours until we say "no...we will not match that offer".

    I know, but I'm talking about NEXT year IF he signs the qualifying offer. I'm wondering if he will be a unrestricted or restricted free agent 2011-12 if he signs the qualifying offer.

    if he signs an offer for 5 years, 4 years, 3 years...whatever....the Pistons match and they have him as their player for that time period.

    It all depends on the offer he signs.

    While he may be under contract with us, there is nothing that we can do to make him enter the game if he doesn't want to.

    I with you man and I'm not debating this. I'm just wondering what happens if a player signs the qualifying offer and nothing but the qualifying offer. Will he become a restricted free agent or a unrestricted free agent the next year?

    Well, of course, if he is drunk and finding himself caught up in a catch 22.

    What I'm saying is this= it depends on the offer the Pistons match.

    Whatever he signs, if the Pistons match it the Pistons will own that contract.

    99% it will be a multiyear contract. If we match it we will own him for more than one year. It will likely be 4-5 years, and base minimum it will be someones MLE at 5-6 mil per for 4-5 years. Stuckey signs a 4 year deal...we match the deal...we have Stuckey for 4 years.
