I agree with you, the guy looked to be in great shape and still was very athletic for his age, but I don't think that's the kind of risk any franchise takes for someone on his way out of the league, just too much money.

I hear what you're saying. Just can't see how Spree playing the way he was wouldn't get an offer in 3y/$27-34 million range.

The most I would have given him would have been 3y/24M with a team option. I remember wanting the Rockets to sign him and hoping we could get him since he had played with JVG previously. Dude still played solid defense and could score.

, Spree's career did not end so well, wish he would of gave a few more years to the fans. I always loved watching him play.
