they have no choice but to sign him...they seem like idiots for tradin away a future startin center in darko and now will probably have to send away another kid wit potential writtin all ova him in delfino...but theere is no way they can not resign ben w/o goin into rebuildin mode.
I am guessing that Ben wants to stay, but with an All-Star caliber/4 time (out of 5 year) defensive player of the year award winning player, would you really just let him go without a fight. They will give him whatever he wants. But the question is, does Ben want to stay or does he want to explore somewhere else? Maybe Toronto, Atlanta, Charlotte or Chicago. They all have enough cap room to offer.
