don't have the link right now, but boone is not at OTAs reportedly because he is unhappy with his contract. will he end up holding out? anybody's guess at this point. it is early in the offseason...
but this kind of pisses me off. sure, it's a business and he's entitled to take this stance if he feels he's underpaid. but part of me thinks- really boone? we gave you the security of a longterm deal for nice money when you were largely unproven over the longterm. we paid you well and your deal now has 2 years left at a pretty good pricetag. when you hit the market again sure you will get more. but you signed on for $2 million when many thought it was a risky deal and we could have been overpaying you!
we are hard up against the cap and are trying to find space to lock up CK. sure, you can try and do the same. but come on. where are we getting money from?
boone has been awesome and is an excellent guard. I love his story of being undrafted and working his way onto the roster and then his transition to guard and becoming a starter and even a top caliber guard. but how about some good faith? we gave you a chance when nobody else did. we gave you an extension when it was risky. play out your last 2 years or at least show up to OTAs and have this be an ongoing conversation rather than a time to try and force the team's hand.
watch out too boone, as there are others in the mix who can replace you in time.
