I heard Mike and other analysts say that Bell is just looking for money. I disagree. I think it’s a pride issue where he wants to get paid what he thinks he’s worth - not for the money, but for the recognition of his value. He even said in previous statements that it’s not about the money:
From Bell - “I don’t necessarily care about the money aspect of it. I just want to be valued where I’m at.”.
That’s why I don’t doubt that this hold out could last a long time.
I had an opportunity to pick up Conner up in my league on Monday for free, but made the mistake of waiting too long and lost him. Doh!
