    Joe Johnson should have waited to sign his contract

    Once Lebron was taken up, I'm quite sure teams like New Jersey, Chicago, and New York would probably have offered Joe Johnson a max contract right away.

    Joe Johnson had been saying how much he did not want to stay in Atlanta but them giving him a max is what made him stay.


    Your thoughts on the situation. Would those other teams had given Joe Johnson a max once Lebron was off the market?

    Atlanta was the only team that could offer him that extra $30 million without a sign and trade occurring.

    Ok, its no secret how much I dislike Bulls. But JordansBulls ur actually one of the few good ones...but why did u make a thread like this? You are BETTER than this. smh...bulls fans

    Anyway, ATL has this thing called Bird Rights on Joe Johnson where they can resign him for 6years and give him max raises of 10%. Other teams can only give Joe Johnson 5yrs and max raises at 8%. ATL gave Joe Johnson the FULL MAX which is more than NJ/Chi/NYC could have given him.

    NYC actually did offer Johnson 5yrs 96 million which is the MAX we could have given him.

    Rose/Joe Johnson/Boozer could've been great.

    Don't know if the Bulls could afford it but either way, would have been impressive.

    The reason I brought this up is because of the turmoil regarding him. He was caught saying he did not like Atlanta and the environment.

    I personally think that Boozer should have waited to sign! He didnt get anywhere near his max. Now, 5yr 75-80 million is still overpaying for the guy but not by much though.

    I think he could have gotten close to 90 million if he would he let New Jersey and Chicago go through a bidding war for his services.

    Didn't he say he wanted to stay in Atlanta? They've been good to him there, maybe he just showed some of the loyalty that people criticized LBJ for not showing.

    That and the extra year is important at his age.

    For 30 million dollars I would just suck it up! Johnson will make like 25 million dollars during his last year of his contract when he is 35! I bet Johnson wont even be worth 10 million when he is 35. That extra year is big!

    Its clear JJ doesnt care about winning... H's gonna be pissed once he gets his *** kicked by Miami... HE shouldve went to Chicago but then again now there is no one in the backcourt that can be a playmaker and Rose have people to stretch the floor and he is gonna beast this year, Hopefully he stays healthy

    Well, its REALLY hard when someone throws an additional 30 million dollars in your face. 30 million is 30 million NO MATTER how u look at it. Thats 30% more than what Chicago could have offered. And I doubt Chi would have given him a max deal anyway.
