He is Ryan Anderson minus the rebounding.
The Howard fantasy is not out the window yet. With Gerald Wallace taking nearly 3 million less the first year, that will be enough to remain under the hard cap.
Indeed, I believe we could sign him with about 2-3m contract. MLE is a rather important option that you should not waste on someone you might easily sign for less money. Not sure if this is all Billy King's doing, I am so disappointed at this nonsense.
But look at the bright side, Playoffs here we come! May as well be a 1st round trip, 2nd round exit, or ECF appearance but anyway we are in it.
