But I doubt this happens, there are just too many factors here, including a team taking Gomez away for free because I doubt Dallas wants him.
Thing is, Dallas is stuck. They might have shed some salary (Neal), but their problem is deeper regarding finances. They will probably need to get close to the cap floor. Gomez is an easy solution to that, as he won't cost as much in the last two years of his contract, while still taking a part of the cap that they don't need to pay him. I might be wrong, but if I remember well, league compensation to teams through the revenue sharing system is based on how much they spend on the cap, not on actual salary.
Just saying, the possibility is there.
Although, I do agree they might want Eller more than they would want Kristo, but I would try to insist on Kristo.
