The last thing you want to have happen is to have Jay Feaster (or worse yet Grath Snow) throw your salary structure out of whack with an offer sheet.

A lot of noise about a glut of older players on the market this summer. A free agent market that looks more like >2005 with many 30+ players cut loose because of new cap rules. It will really hurt guys (i.e. Clowe) from getting a big contract. Forget about big money, as teams reset under the new rules, many older players will have to scramble to find a place to play next year. One thing I have been told is that the cap could stay flat or drop again in 2014. Someone I really trust told me that if you are even thinking about buying a player out, then that player will definitely be bought out.
