Brady extended freeing up 19 million. They already set down to talk to Shaq and I dont think Brady reworks the contract if it isnt used to keep certain players. Both negotiations were going on at the same time. So my call still stands.
With David counting 3.5 against the cap, they could get Shaq 18 mil per year for 3 or 4 years and hit the cap this year by 10 mill perhaps.
