So to clarify, NYI will have to give up a 2nd if TT plays. If he doesn't play, BOS gets nothing. NYI have the option of tolling his contract for next year or resigning it - risk is if TT plays, they give up the 2nd. If he doesn't play, they are up $5m in cap space...
Risk/Benefit? I think Wang is a cheap ass and will try to toll him as long as possible lol
Even if he does decide to play, I'd say a 2nd for a year of Thomas is a pretty good deal.
