We all know this trade was about Baron's fat contract. He just wasn't worth the money he was making. But what exactly are we going to do with this new found cap flexibility. Olshey mentions in his interview that this opens the door for the team to re-sign DJ and extend EJ this offseason; however, as we've all noticed, it also opens up the opportunity for us to go after a free agent in 2012 (aka CP3 or D. Will).
But I ask you, will the Clippers have the ability to pay DJ, EJ, eventually Blake AND a max guy. With a new CBA salaries are likely going to take a hit, so would a CP3 or D Will want to play for less.The math just doesn't seem to make sense to me.
Or maybe this trade is all about Bledsoe.
