    At least Hedo didn't **** up open layup's, Landry to me is a expensive comedian, he's only good off the court...

    When they advertised him as the "glue" type player, I didn't know his feet would literally be glued to the floor

    Why does everyone keep saying 8 mill? he gets 6.25 mill per year.

    I'm not trying to defend it in any way, because it is still a horrible contract, but at least get your facts right if your going to make a thread about it.

    Here is a link to our teams salary information: http://www.shamsports.com/content/pa...es/raptors.jsp

    I'm so sick about hearing about his contract...yes, it's an overpayment, but some of you act like he got a max contract or something.
    It averages about 6 mil a year, every team in the league has a similarly overpaid player.
    It's probably a friendlier contract than Amir Johnson's, but no one ever brings that up. And what about Kleiza?

    A young player, with a reputation for good defense (and a name we had all heard of) wasn't coming here for less than 4 mil. So it's a 2mil overpayment.
    And it's only for 3 years, so reeelaaxxx, we're not winning a title this year or next.... 5 mil this year, 5 mil next, then he becomes a decent trade asset as an 8.5M expiring.

    "The worst signing I've ever seen in my life" yeah right, not even close.
    It's a short term deal, for an amount of money that doesn't really handcuff us moving forward or anything. Get over it.

    Well the contract is bad for 2 years, in year 3 he can be used as an expiring.

    Also, why is everyone *****ing about 3 years, it's not like we are stuck with him for 5 years.

    Do any of you see us in a potential contention position in 2-3 years?

    Are you trolling me? or did I not use big enough font?

    i know it is early and fields has plenty of time to improve but it is perfectly reasonable for people to be upset right now. fields has been absolute garbage. at least amir is productive and klieza can make a layup. all 3 are overpaid but there can be a very strong case made that fields has been the worst starter in the league over the first week of the season. klieza wasn't bad last year and hasn't played this year cause of personal reasons IIRC and amir is steady and a decent big off the bench. as of right now fields' contract looks a lot worse than both of the other two.

    Well put. I personally am far more concerned with his poor play than his contract. I've said it before. I like his baksetball head. Unfortunately he can't be a helpful player for us if his inability to finish a play doesn't get resolved.
