Buying all these guys out does look good this season. I don't like how it looks the following year though. It's not that terrible though. Especially if the cap keeps growing a bit. We might not need that space next year if we don't have too many guys to re-sign. Guess a lot of that will be based on how long we re-sign our RFA's.
What worries me is that, since the CBA's contract ends after next year, the very wide speculation is that the Salary Cap will drop for the 2012-2013 season. That buyout is going to look a lot bigger if that does indeed happen, and that's going to be something that Sather & Co. are going to look into a lot. It's going to matter, big time.
