Yes I would rather pay that $16M to Harden.
Another 10 mill a year to a guy who can't defend or rebound.
I would have liked to see this contract:
4 years, 7.5/8.5/9.5/10.5
Bargs 9 points so far.
Making David West look like a fool out there!
4yr/$40mill overpaid, yes, but he did have one of the most, if not, the most potential in that draft class because of how raw he was. However, seeing this is Toronto, we're always going to see contracts more than what they should be anywhere else, stupid stereotypes. Hopefully everything pans out and he really blossoms in the next couple years.
I don't post in here often, but I am a Raptors fan, and for anybody who has remembered any of my posts you know that I am NOT a CoAngelo fan. This contract being given to DeRozen just infuriates me even more. DeRozen is a SHOOTING GUARD, and, as such, should be able to SHOOT. His FG% though has gone down every season (which is a bad trend) and he cannot shoot 3's at all. Yes, he can slash, and dunk, and he seems like a nice enough guy, but he's not a great defender, creates as many turnovers as he does assists and his rebounding is nothing to write home about. How this guy gets offered 10 million a season is beyond me. I know TO will have a hard time landing big name free agents regardless of their cap space situoation, but that does not mean that the team has to over pay for guys like Bargnani and DeRozen. Bargnani shot 43% from the field last season, and is making over 10 million a year. DeRozen shot 42% from the field. Who in this league thinks either of these guys is worth ten million a year? Who is Toronto bidding against that they think they have to pay out this much for average players? I personally think it would have been better to see DeRozen sign else where if paying this much is required to keep him, or at least look at trading him.
So am I just too pesismistic? Am I missing something here? Is DeRozen worth 10 million a year? Or should Coangelo be getting fired for putting out future cap space in a bad situation for players like DeRozen and Bargnani?
What about just a "no".
8 Million is about max.
i don't mind either Bargnani or Derozan getting 10 million but i am concerned about paying them both 10 million. at some point i think one of them has to be moved or become a much more all round player.
The Toronto Raptors and DeMar DeRozan have agreed upon a four-year, $42 million (with bonuses) contract extension.
DeRozan was the ninth overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft.
DeRozan averaged 16.7 points on 42.2% shooting last season for the Raptors.
if the team wins and he plays well no one will care what he makes, this does have me doubt the Ross pick though, hes gunna see hardly any minutes
No, he's not worth $40 mil.
No, Colangelo shouldn't be fired.
No, as a matter of fact, most players aren't worth their contracts
