Ferry getting aggressive with the Free Agent signings. Lot going on here. First and foremost, Moon is impressive lately, but more so it puts pressure on El Heat to sign him, which in turn limits their ability to shoot for Odom. Another interesting tidbit: this is Ferry’s first offer sheet to a restricted free agent in his GM tenure.
