Splitter does get a qualifying offer because he is comming off a rookie contract. He should actually qualify at a higher number than hoops hype shows because he will be considered a starter.
I stand corrected. Manu would be just another free agent for anyone to sign, with everyone given the same rules.
I don't see that happening.
Didn't Splitter sign as a free agent, given the number of years between his drafting and signing (or was it Euro league experience)?
