This isn't directed at you, but many fans of other teams can't have it both ways.

They were telling us before this was a bad deal even if he retired early, as with the new CBA they could be stuck with the cap hit, and so on. Now many are saying it changes nothing. They can only have it one way.

I agree to someone like Burke, this probably means very little, to Tallon Trading for cap space may be interesting, and who knows for anyone else.

But to HF posters, this should raise the value.
