A-Rod What if? I’m guessing that most people, even those who really want the NBA back in Seattle, wouldn’t give A-Rod much love if he brings the Sonics back (Matt Calkins: “Alex Rodriguez would go from loathed to loved in Seattle by bringing back the Sonics, but don’t count on it”). He just doesn’t come across as genuine or likable.
The contract lowered the salary cap implications for the Seahawks this season and landed Dunlap back where he wanted to be. Still, it took a couple of weeks of uncertainty before the Seahawks understood their cap situation and Dunlap had an idea of what other teams — mostly contenders, he said — were willing to offer. But clearly Seattle was his preferred destination.
