1) How is tampering if somebody else says they are going to make a big offer or even if they themselves said they were? They just can't start negotiating until the 1st. THey can say they want to sign him.

2) That is great what value you put on him but you have no idea what HE wants. Maybe he doesn't want 8-9 million? Maybe he is looking for something specific? I get the impression that he knows where he wants to go based off his quote that said something like he is waiting until July 1st and that it should be over pretty quickly on that day. That to me sounds like he knows what he wants which may be he is going to take the highest offer come July 1st. Who knows? But the Kings can afford to give him an $8m CAP hit but who knows what the Kings GM is really willing to offer.
