On a Raptor related note...

If the cap goes up that much, Derozan's contract looks waaaaaaay better than when he first signed it. Derozan's contract will be a good deal if he stays this productive. This will be something Colangelo did right. His gamble will have paid off, because the way Derozan is playing, he would very likely get an offer sheet over $10 mill on the open market. It might not have been a four year deal like the Raps, but a team almost certainly would have given him a 2 or 3 year deal worth that much. And the 4th year does not hurt us, so long as he is productive, because if the cap goes up or at least stays at the projected 2013/2014 level, $9.5 million becomes good value for what DD provides.
