Many Players Voting to Decertify may actually be voting themselves out of a job

The Houston Rockets have 8 players with 1 year left on their contract. This year and that's it. 6 have "Team options" for next year. 1 has a qualilfying contract (if the team offers it) and 1 is unrestricted.

Hasheem Thabeet, Johny Flynn, Jordan Hill, Terrance Williams, Goran Dragic, Patrick Patterson, Courtney Lee and Chase Buddinger. There are 2 others listed with contracts but are not guaranteed, Marcus Cousin and Marqus Blakely.

The range is from $5million (Thabeet) to $884,000 (Budinger).

Decertifying will mean no season this year. All that guaranteed money for these 8 players GONE. Because the Team has the option, if the same system rules apply, then the Houston Rockets will have the ability to waive them all. None of them seem to be superstars or even close. I like Hill and Patterson but will I be willing to pay them $3.6 and $2million respectively after they both missed an entire season. I will have 2 years of draft picks and 2 years of free agents to pick and choose if the league starts next season. Maybe I make a play for a Superstar so I just cut them all.

And that's only 1 out of 30 teams.
