I wasn't sure why we were willing to go 4M on Jones, with players we now have his production is seemingly going to drop.
Yeah, I'd agree with this. The reason I was thinking about Jones is because it occurred to me that it's amazing how for an entire CBA length there was always hope of the Avs signing the best players in free agency (don't mention Smyth and Hannan) and it just never happened. It always seemed like next year will be a better position to spend. Well now the their is finally a structure in place for the Avs to be competitive on their own terms when it comes to UFA's. Which made me think that Jones+left over cap space could net a pretty nice player in free agency.
