Default No extension offer for Bayless

from Doug Smith's blog


Wednesday was the deadline for offering early contract extensions for players taken in the 2008 draft. Thereís some stuff in Nothing But Net about it but the connection to Toronto is that the HOTH had no interest, really, in doing anything with their only graduate of that class, Jerryd Bayless.

Makes entire sense and Iím glad Bryan resisted any urge to tie up even a few million dollars of his financial flexibility with a longer-term deal.

Thatís not say Jerryd isnít a good and serviceable member of this team or that he wonít get consideration to come back but youíre going to be able to get him for the same money in the summer as you would have this week and it makes entire sense to sit back and wait to see what unfolds.
