Just curious: does anyone know how and why Gray got a 2 year deal worth more than the minimum?
It's just mind-boggling.

^Lol. "Focus" and "attention to detail." In other words, it's not my fault, but Casey's haha

You have to be firm like the Celtics were with Pietrus. 1 year ONLY!

Right now: AAron Gray cheerleader

Jamaal Magloire: better cheer leader (stands up and claps a few more times), not a bad leader, costs less, and gives the team some grit with a hard foul here and there.

Instead, they're both on the Raptors payroll. JM community ambassador.

Its odd that he isnt getting any playing time this year, but last year he was possibly our best big man in terms of defense and rebounding. He was our starting C, and played great over all which lead to a 2 year contact. This year it's been totally different he's barely playing and now all the Raptors fans are hating on him.

I think he did a good job for us last year. I don't hate on him, I just wouldn't have offered him a 2 year deal. I'm fine with the amount of money he's making, but don't like the second year. His 2.7 million, plus amnestying Amir opens up over 9 million dollars. I just like flexibility.

Why the hell people think we will use the Amnesty on Amir?!
He is arguably our best guy off the bench on both sides of the court.
If anything, his value might be close to Bargs' value at this point!

No matter how good you think he is, he's not worth what he's set to get paid: 14 million over the next two seasons.

He's the epitome of a scrub!

I would've much preferred Colangelo had signed a useful vet like Joel Pryzbilla.

Also, Soloman Alibi> Aaron Gray lol,yeah I said it.

Shooting 50 percent. He's playing well for us, but we can't escape the fact that he's overpaid. I am not arguing to amnesty him now because for one it can't be done until the summer and it doesn't make sense because no free agent is available. We have depth at that postion and if we needed to open up some space to sign a free agent, amnestying Amir would be a good option as we're right up against the cap. I mentioned his name in combination with Gray because if gray wasn't on to books for next year, amnestying Amir as well would have given us 10 million in space to go after someone if needed.

How did Grey get a 2 year deal for more than the minimum?
How did Fields get 3 years for 2-3x his market value?
How did Derozan get 4 years/38 million(not saying he hasn't played up to it so far) based on his potential alone?

Colangelo is an awful GM, that's why!

2 years at about 5.3 million. Next year is a player option worth close to 2.7 million.
