I hope he does. Then take his 19mil and divvy it up amongst some guys who actually play defense and know their roles. Would love to land a couple veteran, perimeter defenders like Deng and Thefolosha with Gays $. Then if they are stuck at 7, I am starting to warm to the idea of Gordon, an athletic, mobile big who also knows his role.
We're gonna be around $47 mill....not including Rudy's option, a re-signed Isaiah or our draft pick. Cap is projected to be about $63 mill. So $16 mill free.
If Rudy opts in, that's basically it for free agency. Would have to get really creative to re-sign Isaiah. Trade route would be the only option to improve. If Rudy opts out, you have some wiggle room but you're also down a big-time talent.
I like a lot of guys in this draft. Obviously the higher the better, but guys like Gordon and Vonleh wouldn't be bad if we stay put.
