    Wow.

    MORE:

    Suns presented RFA Thomas with a four-year, $27m offer sheet. Kings no interest in matching; Thomas no interest in staying, sources say.

    So Anna, what do you think about the notion that Russell Wilson is better than Andrew Luck?

    7 mil exception could be very useful.

    keep in mind teams do let those trade exceptions expire. GS just let one of theirs expire last night. Pete better get something good with ours cause he basically just let IT walk for nothing as it stands.

    This is probably the 5th time I've said this, but does Pete have any clue what he's doing?

    This is terrible. You won't pay IT 4/27?

    I don't understand... What is the front offices beef with IT? That's such a great contract for him I would've matched and tried to mend the relationship.

    How does a trade exception help us get better? I never understood the value of one, other than to make total contracts match up in a trade

    Even if PDA didn't want IT, why didn't he trade him mid-season when we could have actually got something for him.

    we can make a trade in the future for an additional $7M more than the deal allows and it's absorbed through our exception.

    Hung out with a bunch of people from all over the league last night in Vegas. No one has any clue what the Kings are doing.

    We're gonna be the worst ****ing team in the league. ****ing tired of losing season after winning season. Now we get some ****ing bum who won't play and a trade exception we won't ****ing use. **** this dumbass team.

    **** you, PDA. For about $1 million per year less we signed a massive downgrade. This is why we do, and forever will continue to, suck.

    ^That's what I thought, but what's the appeal to the team that were trading the trade exception to? They can send the more expensive player to us and free up 7 mill in cap?

    I agree with y'all. This sucks, but it smells like they have a Josh Smith, Thad Young, Ryan Anderson, Larry Sanders or even Rondo move in place next. If not, this was handled so poorly. I'm willing to let it play out but right now I'm scratching my head.
