Now that he's unrestricted, does that mean we lost Bird rights? Or can we sign and trade him for something like a secound round pick or TPE?

I cant argue that point but nevertheless signing a guy like uzoh wouldn't hurt the team.

Here's what I think happens. The QO was for 4.7mil, not many teams have more to offer other than the mini MLE. I don't think Houston wants him so who's left? I think they'll re-sign him for less than the QO. They have obviously looked at the market and think there isn't much of one left for a PG like bayless. At the very least he won't be offered a 5mil contract.


Just a guess. I predict they sign him with the mini mle.

i think technically any team could sign a player and just trade him for something, its just that if that team has no connection with the player there would be no reason for the player to help out that team to get something

Thank Jesus.

I have nothing personal against Bayless, he plays hard... I just don't want him chucking the ball into the crowd while wearing a Raps jersey. I'd much rather have Jose back up Lowry and retain his expiring contract for tweaks now, or closer to the deadline. We still have several very movable players (DD, ED/Amir, Jose) to add to the team. Will be interesting to see what BC does over the next few weeks.

Yeah, no reason to preserve Bayliss. No one will run to sign him. I liked Uzoh as well, and I can see him coming to his own after a full season. What's the most we'd have to pay him?

Calderon? Growing sense w/rival teams is Raps either use Spaniard's expiring deal in trade or just keep him. Scratch him from amnesty lists

I hope Jose is ok with coming off the bench...
There has to be another trade in the works still too many PF's

Lowry/Jose/Uzoh
DeRozan/Ross
Feilds/Jj/Anderson
AB/Amir/Davis/Klieza
JV/Grey/Mags

^Is what we will probably look like if we make no more moves...

So... By simply rescinding Bayless' offer, BC has instantly killed all the lowball offers he was undoubtedly getting for Jose? Smooth.

if that's the thinking i like it a lot. To me BC is showing he is very creative and thinks of every detail when trying to improve this team. I'm not a fanboy at all, i just think he's doing a solid job.

Jose coming off the bench would be great but i dont know if thats realistic because it didnt work in the past. but starting the season i would not be mad at lowry/calderon pg situation at all. it'll be interesting to see what BC has planned
