Some in the local media seem to think this might be a wise move: “If David Lee believes he’s a $10M per player, then maybe he will follow the path of Ben Gordon, who twice turned down contract extension offers from the Bulls, did not find a likable offer sheet as a restricted free agent and accepted a one-year $6.4M qualifying offer to buy himself unrestricted free agency this summer. It’s a major risk.”
