The fact that Benn and O'Reilly are also holding out makes me think that this is a bigger issue, that it's a battle over the value of 2nd contracts for good players. I think it's also worth mentioning that these players were among the biggest losers in the new CBA - they get the contract restrictions and the lower % of HRR, but none of the make-whole cash. Maybe there's some justifiable anger among these players, the sense that they have to look out for themselves.
