    Yes, I agree with that.

    Losing a draft picks knocks many teams out of the bidding process. But it depends if it goes from 10 to 5, or 10 to 1.

    I'm interested in seeing how the QO affects Stephen Drew.
    He hasn't really been an impact player consistently, despite putting up a nice year in Boston.
    Will the QO compensation cause his market to dry up?
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I agree....his story will be an interesting one. Drew is a weak player with the QO burden. Bora$$ scoffed at the idea that Drew would settle for 3 years at 12Mil per year. He isn't worth more than that.
