"I've gone on record of saying that the problem of going after restricted free agents, at that point the player and the agent has the leverage.

"And then giving up a first-round pick and with the new rules, that first-round pick, the amount of money you have to pay on the first four years is not what it was in the previous [collective bargaining agreement].

Possibly, but they'll be thinking about all of those other ramifications."
