Some thumbnail suggestions on the coming reality: * Players with opt-out clauses will suddenly feel much happier about staying exactly where they are and at the salary they have. For instance, if you’re Jamal Crawford of the Warriors and you have an opt-out this summer, would you run away from the $9.4M and $10.1M you’re owed in the next two seasons… in order to be a free agent in potentially the worst F/A climate of all time? No, you would not. Not only are a dozen or more teams saving space for the Epic F/A Class of 2010, but there’s a chance NOBODY WILL HAVE ANY MONEY THIS SUMMER. Period. None.

Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News makes it a point to note that players who can opt-out this summer would be wise not to, as hardly any teams will have any money. His analysis comes along the same day the Orlando Sentinel reported that the Magic and Hedo Turkoglu "aren't yet on the same page" regarding money. Hm.
