I find it more useful to slot in draft picks that we own the rights to going forward, since like players, unless traded they will almost certainly result in cap hits.
Hobbs,Do you have a link for the Wally thing? Wouldn't his trade kicker have been exercised when he was traded from Minny to Boston? Just this is the first I have heard of that provision.-B
here are two types of free agency: restricted and unrestricted. An unrestricted free agent is free to sign with any other team, and there's nothing the player's original team can do to prevent it. Restricted free agency gives the player's original team the right to keep the player by matching an offer sheet the player signs with another team. One example is from August 2002, when Minnesota signed Ricky Davis to an offer sheet, but Cleveland matched the offer and retained him.Restricted free agency exists only on a limited basis. It is allowed following the fourth year of rookie "scale" contracts for first-round draft picks (see question number 41). It is also allowed for all veteran free agents who have been in the league three or fewer seasons. However, a first round draft pick becomes an unrestricted free agent following his second or third season if his team does not exercise its option to extend the player's rookie scale contract for the next season. All other free agency is limited to unrestricted free agency.
Rondo - I think the team option would be an offer. Rajon doesn't have to take it if he thinks he can make more money on the open market (or if he doesn't like it here, he, he).

Players have no say in team options, just as teams have no say in player options. There is such a thing as a mutual option, where either team can decline.
But Roy, if Posey chooses the player's option, does that mean it will become a two year contract and it's still the MLE from last year? Or will we have to use next year's MLE on him and Tony Allen (if he declines the qualifying offer)?
