If they Keep Bullock, waive Ellington then I think that covers everyone right?

Good. We have like 40 million in cap space. We should get at least one but perhaps two starter on a championship team caliber players. I am not as much worried about the dollar amount as long as it is not a sign and trade where we have to give up picks. It is not like there are any superstars that we have to keep cap space for. Plus it seems like it is not that hard to create cap space if anyone becomes available.

Surprised about Wooten, thought he might have a chance. Plus he was earning the min, right? I guess we decided he's just not NBA caliber??

I hope we resign him. Not sure why they let all of the bigs go.

We had to sweeten the pot to get these players to accept triple what they were worth

I'm surprised there isn't an uproar over the Wooten thing after the way he was being hyped up

You guys were super high on him
