thats not a guaranteed 10% increase. LET HIM GO !
No team can be competitive letting its players go over 10% raises even if they are not worth it. They lose too much talent, it can't be replaced via UFA route (too much $) and if they try the trade route they rapidly run out of prospects and picks, and then run the risk of losing that player via the 10% increase at some future time. Fans desert the team of duds, team loses more money, downward spiral.
Demented you know you are speaking nonsense. While its an uneven playing field let people walk means teams go backwards. Unless every GM agrees not to offer the rejected player a contract then it won't work, and if every GM does blackball that player then its illegal collusion.
