Stefan Bondy agrees that Travis Outlaw's contract is "ugly" at $28 million over four, but he writes that the Nets should think hard before they use the amnesty provision on the 6'9" forward. He reasons the Nets have plenty of cap space now and rather than "waste" money on a weak free agent class, they should go the "sensible route": smaller, shorter deals and hold cap space for 2012.
As for the Nets superstar, Bondy writes, "Deron Williams might not be thrilled, but let’s face it, he’s going to explore his options no matter what the Nets do in this upcoming free agency."
