Expiring contracts: The game show

And now it's time for America's favorite new sports-themed game show:  Know Your Contracts

And here's your host with the most.....Guy Smiley!

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you everybody!  And welcome!  Welcome to Know Your Contracts, the show in which rumors are laid aside and facts are made clear.  All of our Internet contestants seem to be ready, so let's dive right in.

Now, every episode of our show has a theme and here comes the lovely Carol Merrill with the envelope containing today's theme....thank you, dear....OK, contestants, today's theme is:

Expiring contracts for the Portland Trailblazers

OK, now each of our contestants will have the opportunity to evaluate the five statements on the board that relate to today's theme.  Each of these statements can be put into one of three categories:

A) True

B) False

C) We don't have enough information to make a definitive statement of either true or false

 

These statements are to be evaluated by what we know today.  And the assumption is that no change takes place in their status - that is to say, no unexpected extension is offered to any player, no trades are made that involve the player, etc.  The statements are to be evaluated based on the player's current status.

OK, here are today's statements.  Please tell me whether they can be best described by either A, B or C:

Statement 1: Greg Oden has an expiring contract and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.  Even if Portland wants to retain his services as a player, he could leave to sign with another team.

Statement 2: Joel Przybilla has an expiring contract and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.  Even if Portland wants to retain his services as a player, he could leave to sign with another team.

Statement 3: Dante Cunningham has an expiring contract and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.  Even if Portland wants to retain his services as a player, he could leave to sign with another team.

Statement 4: Andre Miller has an expiring contract and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.  Even if Portland wants to retain his services as a player, he could leave to sign with another team.

Statement 5: Patty Mills has an expiring contract and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.  Even if Portland wants to retain his services as a player, he could leave to sign with another team.

 

It is not necessary to explain your answers, although you are encouraged to do so.  Remember to answer carefully, as there are non-valuable, non-cash prizes to be awarded.  And thanks for playing Know Your Contracts!

 

EDIT:  I'll post the answers in a day or two, but if you just can't wait, you can find the answers here.
