Nothing is going to be imminent with these minimum salary guys. Obviously no one rushes to verbally agree to those terms until they have to.

Kevin Negandhi @KNegandhiESPN

If you think the players are getting paid in NBA free agency, just think what the owners are raking in. They don't spend unless they make $$
