It's good of you to be concerned about the Smith's.
I don't think we are trying to maintain cap space next year for salary dumps. From everything we are hearing it sounds like we legit think we can get some free agents next year that will put us in to contention.
Again... they are misreading the market on their cap space. The cap is going to the moon... those deals signed in two years will be like 50% more than the deals signed last offseason or this offseason. Also when the cap rises everyone has space which opens up the best destinations. Sure... sounds like a great plan... hunt for deals in the frothiest market there will be... maybe we can overpay Mozgov or Deng?!?!?!?!?Next year is a OK free agent class without the top top end talent. THe following year is the GOAT class. I do think Utah can maybe cleanup if they put their eggs in that basket and get some solid overall players on good deals.
Its very reminiscent of the KOC/DL years where we "kept powder dry" and waited to strike... then had nothing good to use our space on so instead of taking a swing on one of the wings we got to assume Diaw's deal, overpay Favs on 1 year deals, and sign the Trevor Bookers of the world.
We are not reading the market right.
