The Charlotte Bobcats made a long-term commitment to forward Tyrus Thomas on Friday, coming to terms on a five-year, $40 million contract with the restricted free agent.

The deal was struck shortly after the New Jersey Nets presented a front-loaded offer sheet that would have been difficult for Charlotte to match because it's close to hitting the luxury tax, a payroll figure owner Michael Jordan said the team would not exceed.

Ty really has a big upside, if he lives up to his potential this can turn out to be a really good deal for the Cats.

I like his potential. It's a little more expensive than I thought he would get, but if he plays the way he is capable of playing it is a good signing.

^^ he's certainly better than Amir Johnson is or will ever be but yet still he got 7 mil per so I am not really shocked that he got 8 per.

I think Amir was overpaid as well. Maybe I'm just old. :(

8 million a year for Thomas, this free agency just becomes more insane every day.
