I think maybe they are going to wait a few days to see if they can secure some funding.

It would be very beneficial for the league to help them get a loan or some cash. Having a franchise that doesn't make much money (if any) completely bottom out and lose all their players vs a franchise that will probably sell out every game and make lots of money and has a rich owner regardless of whether Weber comes or not...

You have a situation this summer where two smaller market teams that don't make money are losing their franchise players, potentially to big market teams with plenty of cash. It just doesn't look good from the outside and kind of speaks to the need to improve revenue sharing or reduce/re-work the salary cap and floor calculations as a percentage of revenues.
