This is great news for San Antonio.

Only stupid people think this is good for the Spurs.

I would hazard a guess the Spurs will extend RJ at a more reasonable contract money-wise and longer, giving him more money, and allowing the Spurs to sign a free agent via MLE to upgrade the bench.

Say 3 years, $30 million.

Almost as bad as Nomar Garciaparra turning down the Boston Red Sox contract. What an idiot. All those poles to his derriere must be affecting his cognitive skills.

I disagree.

That $15 Million was based on his contract he signed when he was a borderline All Star talent with New Jersey competing for a NBA Title. He mentioned several times that playing in San Antonio's system was killing his value as a FA in 2011. He realizes hes a MLE player, but with that big contract people were looking at him as a bad contract rather than a good SF in the right system.

So he gives up 15 Million? He did this to help San Antonio. San Antonio can S&T Jefferson(similar to Toronto with Marion) for Jefferson to get maybe a 5/$40 Million Dollar Deal while San Antonio can bring back some talent as well since they wont have a MLE this season. They weren't going to find any suitors for Jefferson's expirer post-2010 FA Frenzy.
