@WojYahooNBA:
The Toronto Raptors are finalizing a four year, $40 million contract extension with DeMar DeRozan

What the hell has he done to deserve $10M a year?

Guard DeMar Derozan's contract extension with the Raptors is incentive based and close to $42 million, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Well the Raptors have always been big on banking on a players potential rather than likelihood for success. But depending on how Bargs plays this year, you could argue it has paid off in the past. If Bargs remains the same player, then it makes this move all the more troubling.

IndyRealist
10-31-2012, 06:54 PM
Toronto really should have seen what RFA would bring. That's a pretty substantial overpay and makes him more or less untradeable.

It makes the deals George Hill (5yr, $40M), Jeremy Lin (3yr, $25M) and now Ty Lawson (4yr, $44M) look a whole lot better.

I was getting ready to come in here and defend the $10 mil a year to DeRozan based off his relative production to Curry at $11 mil a year or Harden at $16 mil a year...

Then I looked at DeRozan's numbers. OMG :speechless: What the heck happened? I thought he was supposed to be a nice up and coming piece. His efficiency is atrocious.

Last season he was pretty much running a line-up w/ ben uzoh, alan anderson, amir johnson and aaron gray lol

He clearly wasn't ready for it.. and u can tell by his stats and just from watching the games

But he's looked pretty good this preseason with the new additions.. He's bigger.. His defense looks better, his post game looks real smooth and he shouldn't have so much pressure on him this time

I'm ok w the contract for now.. We'll see in a few years how good/bad it is tho lol

10-31-2012, 07:18 PM
He has to score more than 20ppg and defend better to earn this deal. MORE PRODUCTION.
DUDe is 6'7 and has never seen the upside of 4 boards a game, handles the ball quite a bit and only has 2apg.
40 mil for 20,4 and 2. PASS. Better look more like 22, 6 and 4.

Raptors figured if they were paying Landry Fields nearly $7 million a year to not play then they'd have to pay Derozan $10 million a year to actually play

CoAngelo needs to be fired for this. DeRozen can't even shoot the fawking ball. He's a shooting guard for fawks sake! And he can't even do that! WTF!

This is why I have such a hard time being a Raptors fan. He is now untradable. It's one thing to give out a contract to a guy that can play and then see his production drop, but when you are giving contracts like this out to guys who haven't even proved themselves. The Raptors are just putting themselves in a horrible position. They over pay for Bargnani, they over pay for Derozen, and they are making horrible moves in the draft. This is going to have them strapped for years and forever in the re-building process. It would have been better to see Derozen go for nothing than keep him at 10 million a year.

FAWK!!!

BUT they have Lowry on 6 mil a yr deal, probably the biggest bargain in the league. They have Calderon Klieza coming off the books at the end of this year freeing up 15 mil, and Davis Ross and Valanciunas all on rookie deals. I do agree it is too much money for him

And Coangelo should be a GM? He took over a playoff team, fired the 'coach of the year' and proceeded to make horrible draft picks and turn a team that was in great position into a perenial loser.

Coangelo only got the job because of who his dad is. He should be the one posting of forums instead of running an NBA team.

10 million a year for DeRozen?

Arron Afflalo is a much better player and is only making 7 million per. He's got a better shooting percentage and a better assist-to-turnover ratio and he's just as good a rebounder. The same could be said of Gerald Henderson is making far less than DeRozen at about 3 million a year.

If Coangelo had done his homework he would have known that DeRozen shouldn't even be making 5 millio a year, let alone 10!

Even i they were competing for the 8th seed (which, with that roster they are not), the fact that it's the 8th seed they are competing for and not the championship indicates the issue with this roster. Every team in Toront's division has a better starting line up. They will easily finish last in their division with this starting line-up.

Though they do have one of the best PG rotations in the league.

makes me pick and poke at his game even more. Good thing we have Alan Anderson on the bench- which Derozan is making him look vastly underpaid with that monster contract.

can't create his own shot in the half court, no 3 point shot, no handles. even if he had one of these attributes/skills and did it well, I could justify his salary a little more.

If any of you saw the game last night against the Pacers, they played Calderon beside Lowry for the most of the second half. Shows you what type of shooting guards we have on this team

And just because some teams overpay for borderline All-stars doesn't mean Toronto should over-pay for a borderline starter.

$17m tied up between Fields & Derozan is not a good building block. Add in Bargs and his one dimensional game and you have $27m on those 3 guys. None of which have really proven to be difference makers.

Calderon takes alot of slack, but he might deserve his $10m more than any of those 3 guys

I would have let him hit RFA.

Agree, i doubt he gets an offer of close to this or more...and if he did, they'd be welcome to him. Shooting guards who can't shoot shouldn't get close to $10m per

give him more credit then below average starter.

i don't think big wigs who know 100X more than you about basketball would offer a below average starter 10m a year even if it is considered overpay

Contract kicks in next season.

If the Raptors waited and Derozan had a good year then you run the risk of a desperate team offering an excessive amount of money and Derozan walking for nothing. or Raps "overpaying".

This way the Raps lock him up and can get something back for him in return if he doesn't pan out the way we like it. Thus he doesn't leave for nothing.

His contract is probably going to be 8 + 9 + 10 + 11

The Raptors are now paying a combined $60 million to DeMar DeRozan and Landry Fields. Yikes.

Random side note: this is why I wanted the Bulls to match Asik and the Knicks to match Lin. That ending expiring year has mega-value as there will always be overpaid players to dump.

Dude really everyone gets it you hate Calderon, just cause his names mentioned doesn't mean you have to constantly come crying. But yes Demar is overpaid but what ever people want to think he can develop into a solid player whether he will not sure. People said the same about Bargnani and whether you hate him or love him he's at market value now.

just cuz they are there doesnt mean they know what they are doing i mean look at jordan with the bobcats does he know what he is doing he knows basketball for sure he is the greatest but he doesnt know how to run a team.
toronto is just in it to make money there not building a playoof team with the decisions they are making it sucks cuz that core with jonas bargs and lowry i like

Do you have proof that he doesnt watch the Raptors? What about me? I share his opinion, the improvements hes made have been laughable. Are you going to say I dont watch the game either?

Bryan has made some questionable to bad moves throughout the years, DD signing being one of them. I sure hope Derozan proves people wrong, the key word hope. However I can't knock him completely as he did manage to grab Lowry and get Jonas in the draft.

He's managed to somehow get rid of his mistakes onto I guess worse GMs.

The guy is good at what a General Manager is supposed to do.......except for handing out contacts. I trust in Bryan's ability to trade players and draft players. I don't trust him when it comes to sign players though.

You may watch a Raptors game every now & then but there is more than meets the eye,

Raps have been tanking the past 2 seasons. People forget that the Raps were starting:

Calderon
Derozan
Alan Anderson
Amir Johnson
Aaron Gray

for a large portion of the season.

He has developed a post game over the past couple of seasons. Also he's improved on his Jumpshot, (not 3's). He has a nice turn around fadeaway that he's been working on & he has been getting to the FT line regularly. Not to mention he is a durable player, he has only missed 8 games in his career.

Last season was a shortened season and a new coach in Casey. Derozan started the season off slow but the final three months, Feb, March and April Derozan was posting...

18ppg on 44%FG & 82%FT on 6.2 FTA in 36mpg

Those are not terrible #'s.

I'm surprised by the responses in this topic. He's shown just as much promise as other players cashing in on similar contracts.

You clearly have been watching Monroe a little too much to pay attention to DeRozan and the other players. DeRozan is a shooting guard that can't shoot, doesn't play D and despite having more of an opportunity than damn near anyone who re-upped (started more games than any of those said players) his game has remained stagnant and he really hasn't shown any signs of improved one area or the other. I don't see the promise.
