The arrogance and entitlement that will potentially drive Dwight away(Fans).
you'll get what you earn
Dude, chill. The OP had a point he wanted to make. Calling him "arrogant" (especially given your chosen user name) because he doesn't "get" the salary cap from your perspective is not cool. In fact I think the OP may have been thinking a couple levels above where the basic analysis in this thread has gone and didn't feel the need to explain the basic thought process. Most posters on this forum "get" the salary cap issues.
As I see it, this thing goes one of two ways-
1. Dwight resigns, we do our best to surround him with as much talent as cheaply as we can. Inevitably, guys that think they are worth a big FA contract wont get them because they aren't that good or the economics of the CBA kick in. After the first round of FAs sign, the leftover pool still contains some really good talent that can be had cheap (MMLE or vet min cheap). THOSE are the guys that we should be targeting now, so that when they don't land the big offer, they call us next. Those guys often will sign short term deals.
2. Dwight bolts. Doesn't really matter what we do, we are screwed for next season, but probably end up with similar talent, just different players for now different roles.
Back to the OP's points ... I don't see Jordan Farmar et all as being the type guys we are after in either case.
