You beat me to the punch, but nice concise job. It is just more cap floor subversion by Wang. That is why it is 100% believable. Gomez denying the rumor is predictable. No need to burn a bridge he may need at some point in the future.

Rolston is the living breathing proof that Wang hires short term salary plugs so he doesn't get locked into any long term salary hits above the cap floor.

Sucks to be us.
