Can the Spurs Sign and Trade him? Maybe that'll help the Spurs.

Yes they can. Wouldn't all-out surprise me if they did. could even resign him to a longer deal, no one really knows at this point. from what it sounds like, Jefferson just wants options, his agent said "it's not a matter of not wanting to be in San Antonio. It's maximizing as many opportunities as you can".

He just ****ed himself over. He's not getting that type of money he left by any other team.

Well he ****ed the Spurs harder. Spurs are still over the cap with him gone. They will have a gaping hole at SF. By opting out, Jefferson is basically forcing the Spurs to do a SnT with him.

Something has to be up. No way this guy just opts out of 15 million.

What makes you think he will be lucky to get the MLE let alone not get more than it?

Um, what an idiot. He must have been really unhappy in San Antonio. What's sort of amusing is that he's screwing himself AND the Spurs organization. He's not going to fetch much on the open market and the Spurs now have a gaping hole at small forward.

yeah this is nuts. either he knows something about the CBA/lockout or he is insane? He just left close to 10 mil on the table for next season. Playing in a great town on a great, if aging, team. Think he wants to be a ring chaser for the heat or some shit? He must be rich as balls by now.

I don't get it either.

He would have gotten $15m next year, and then say he could have gotten a 3 year $15m deal after that. That would mean he would get $30m over the 4 years.

If he gets a 4 year deal tomorrow, I will be surprised if it's more than 4 years $20m.

I think he costs himself a good $5-$10m dollars by doing this.

The Spurs Organization must have his whole family in a basement held at gunpoint.

Maybe once your a multi millioniare - a pow wow wit hthe franchise says you do this we will take care of you long term , and allow us some flexibility to land Ginobli or other free agents .... just saying we have no clue what these big franchises say to their players before they opt out.
