    It’s going to be a long year for Denver. And now they don’t have any means to sign an outside free agent other than the minimum salary exception, which will hurt them if they come across a young player they like during the year (i.e. Patrick Beverley with the Rockets a few years ago).

    • Jake Bullis

      Is it just me or do you think they could of/should of signed Gallinari to a cheaper deal?
