Hedo was seen as a good player at the time which is why we weren't the only team offering that kind of money (Portland). Landry was a stupid move. But being in Canada does play into it, absolutely. Ujiri will overpay players, already has (McGee) and it likely won't take long here. Most GM's overpay some players and they aren't in Canada.
