Fitz and Brooks just said that a 'text message' from Baron was received saying that Clippers is a possibilty...but golden state is where I want to stay. Then why opt out?

The best thing for the team to ddo is give the Baron what he wants and deserves. Three years is not a lot in today's standards I could even see 4 @ 12 mil per.. If you look at the other top 7 point guards in the NBA this is the going rate and I consider Baron one of the top 7 point guards in the NBA. That would still free up 5 mil for this years cap that we would have been committed to if he did not opt out (17.8 mil owed). With the extra money we can sign Monta, Beidrins, and another 2 FA's and still be a playoff team.. I feel that we are one great player and a nice bench player away from being a title contender. Without Baron its almost back to square two.. Not quite square one but it's a step back...

I heard the first 20 minutes or so of Fitz and Brooks and they didn't mention a text message.

What makes you guys think Baron would accept three years? He wants a long-term deal, 5 or 6 years. He'd probably stay here if we were willing to give him a max deal for that length of time, but will go to the Clippers if we won't lock him up that long.

Honestly I wouldn't give him more than 2-3 years, so if he needs to leave so be it.
