    These medical retirement deals never seem to work out (see Miles, Darius for an example)

    No kidding! I only hope nothing that bad happens between this franchise and Roy. I would hate to see fans turn their backs on him in any situation. If he had a choice he would choose to be healthy and playing at an allstar level. Don't ever hate on B-Roy!!

    There is just no easy answer to the dilema.  The options that have been kicked around are

    1.  Amnesty clause - should be in the new CBA but still not a nice way to treat Roy after all that he has gone through for the team.  upside is millions in savings. 

    2.  Early retirement - another kick in the shorts on the way out the door.  if he takes it, ok.  if he doesn't (as I suspect) it will create a pretty hostile environment between Roy and management.  

    3.  redefine his role on the team - this seems like the best option but no role that Roy can fill will justify the money he will make over the next couple of years.  

    It's a no win situation for somebody no matter how you look at it.  

    I am a fan of new seasons and new possibilities.

    The most difficult part about this entire ordeal is our love for Roy as a person. We Blazer fans [ at least the large majority of us] are very loyal to this franchise. It is afterall the only one we have. To see Roy ousted would be unbearable. He brought respectability back to the RG. I think he is owed at least the courtesy of a few options. I say pay him what he's owed. Theres another game changer out there,we'll find him. We just have to be patient. By now, we should all know how to do that.
    I am a fan of our new roster playing with and for eachother.

    You make it sound like he wouldn't get his money, all the amnesty means is it doesn't effect us on the salary cap.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
