Cap's at $53 mils, and we're way over.
Billups was the MVP of the Finals in '04, still one of the best pgs in the league, and is only 30 years old. Yet, he makes only $6.3 mils this year. He'll command a max salary of at least $15 mils a year when he opts out. Forget about it.
Would like to have him, but his talent would have to take a backseat to fit in our offense. Case closed.
