As BlazerBandit has so kindly pointed out the Behind the Beat blog is reporting that Travis Outlaw has been re-signed to a contract which his agent claims in in the realm of $4 million a year for three years.
My initial reactions:
--We got him at a pretty nice price. If he does turn out to be good it's a real bargain. If not it's short and inexpensive. Also we'll be looking at the next contract for him AFTER our cap space evaporates, which is good.
--We were lucky that relatively few teams had cap space this year and none of those would be particularly interested in him. Almost everybody, of course, has that $5 million-ish mid-level exception but when you start looking at spending 80% of it on one, unproven player you probably start thinking twice. If T.O. got other offers they couldn't have been much more than he was offered here.
