Options due: Dump Luke, Nolan and Elliot for a Near-Max Player?

19

Joe Freeman at Oregonlive.com discusses the upcoming option deadline for Nolan Smith, Luke Babbitt and Elliot Williams. As he notes: "Combined, the team options on Smith, Williams and Babbitt approach roughly $7 million. That's a big chunk of free agent change, and if the Blazers refuse to exercise the options, they could have as much as $13.3 million in cap space next summer. That's less than $500,000 from bidding for a maximum-level free agent. " What do you think? Do you decline all their options on the chance the Blazers could sign a near-max free agent next Summer? (Does anyone feel up to checking the math?)
