Well GVC was providing information on the rules for extending contracts with Bird rights. I was asking if you can avoid these regulations by allowing the player to enter FA.
Asik was a RSA iirc. So the Rockets inserted the poison pill in the first year knowing the Knicks are SOL. But I don't know if there are rules on what you can do once a player is a true FA. If there are any. I am currently under the impression that UFA signings aren't subject to much of anything structure wise.
