The clock is ticking closer to midnight and still no word on whether Tony Allen has been extended a qualifying offer. We’ll be watching the situation past midnight for all of you night owls around town… and for those of you out west and around the world checking in. Stay tuned for any updates.
Meanwhile, for those of you entertaining thoughts of Ryan Gomes… Minnesota made him a qualifying offer… so they’d have the right to match any offers made to him. They did the same to Craig Smith… but not for Sebastian Telfair… so Bassy is likely heading to his 4th team in 4 years.
I’m no fan of his (and I know some of you are) but I’ll freely admit that its hard to survive as a point guard in basketball playing for 4 teams in 4 years. A little consistency and time to grow in one system will benefit him greatly. If I’m his agent, I’m convincing him to find a place where he can sign a 2 or 3 year deal, no matter the money, so he can get some stability.
