That's what I thought too but that's not true. The extension kicks in after this up coming season so we'd still have room if we signed Roy before Miller. In NBA 2k9 what you are saying is true, I've found out the hard way. It would just be silly if you had to sign a FA first before doing an extension that doesn't kick in until a year later.
