Default Banks May Not Be in Raptors' Plans



Quote:
Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo says Banks, a former Cimarron-Memorial High School and UNLV standout point guard who is playing for his fifth NBA team, is a question mark to be on the Raptors' opening-night roster.

"I'd say right now everything's up in the air," said Colangelo, who watched his team play Saturday in the NBA Summer League. "We have a lot of moving parts right now with free agency and our draft, and as the dust settles, we may have some things that may or may not affect Marcus."

If I had to guess, they'll probably buy him out.

Nobody's going to take him on and give up something in return, especially with the money he's owed.

How did this contract happen?

Seriously, did Markus play well for a season? half a season? a string of games?

The whole thing is like Yogi Stewart 2.0

Buyout is the only way to get rid of him
or, I guess we can trade him for another bad contract, but who at least fills a need

Yeah i agree, but unless we desperately need his roster spot i don't see the logic in buying him out. He at least becomes a half-decent asset after this season and buying him out probably saves us next to nothing.

I dont think that is entirely true Acie.

Banks coupled with a George or Wright or even Douby(all expiring) would probably net a player making more over a longer tearm. Money Talks.

For Example

Pairing Banks with George would mean the Raps could take back this much salary:
Banks-$4,553,793
George-$1,600,000
$6,153,793
Multiply by 125% plus $100,000(for teams over cap as per CBA)
Total salary that can be taken on $7,792,241.25

Just that alone would save the team receiving Banks and George 1.6 million dollars.
George expires at the end of the season saving another 1.6 million over the remainder of Banks Contract. Add in someone like Wright or a S&T Delfino would probably even net someone like Maggette.

And in the case of Banks and George for Posey, NO would save a total of a bit more than 12 million over 3 years, with no salary at all in the final year of Posey's current contract.

So I dont think it is as bad as people think, everyone in the league is tradeable for the right package.

& he is only 31 and trust me he would love a change from the Bucks there just awfull with there roster so far LOL

The only way we get rid of Banks's bad contract is taking on someone else but at least Dan is way more usefull than Banks & or George!

I don't see that happening. What do they gain?

Banks isn't going to give away millions especially in this market when teams are cutting back. At best he signs a buy out at around $8mil ($4 mil per year).

Don't forget they need a body to replace Banks in the lineup.

So it's either 1) Banks or 2) Buyout to free up $1mil to sign a scrub

No way, they may as well stick with Banks. Even if by some chance that happened were talking about the 13-15 players on the team. Yawn...

A buyout is 33% of his current contract. Which means 1.5Mil/yr instead of 4.5Mil/yr. And to the best of my knowledge Banks wouldn't have much say in it.
