But I agree about not bringing in high priced talent. This team doesn't need to. They have homegrown players that have stepped up. Just full in the small holes here and there.
Philly bought the dream team and laid out a turd. Buffalo signed the highest rated D FA that resulted in nothing.
Pretty sure the CBA says 89% which is still a chunk of change. 98% would not allow for small teams to be profitable.
