Flip is a restricted free agent and is drawing interests on the record from Denver and Washington. Considering that AD is most likely gone, is there a better combo guard option on the market than Flip? Flip is a younger, better prospect than AD anyway and most likely will come at a cheaper price. Consider the fact that we are losing free agents in masses, it make sense to keep the free agents that are the most inexpensive. Even if a team like Denver offers the full mid-level exception, I think that we would have to seriously look at matching the deal for Flip. The signing of Ray for 80-85 million makes his opinion of playing with Flip irrelevant. There isn't a better combo guard available in free agency other than Flip and at this point in his career the mid level exception may be a bargain. I used to think that Flip coming back was nearly impossible, but losing at least Nate, BGJ, AD, Vlad and Damien Wilkins makes Flip's resigning that much more of a priority.
