Being marketable outside of canada also contributes to the Raptors being a big market team. We never had that since the VC days.

You haven't watched him enough. He's gotten a lot better.

I've read recently that in the history of the league, a player on a rookie contract who was offered a max contract by his current team never bolted. Never happened.

So yes, for all the talk, he'll re-sign there if they offer him the big bucks.

The bigger problem with Jennings is who the heck does he think he is. He's a middling point guard who has as many flaws as qualities. Does he really believe that a big market team will plan their cap space so that two years from now they'll have the cap space to give him a max contract ???

He is one of those players where if we get a good deal for him I would love to have him here, but Im not too worried or bothered if he doesnt come here.

Yeah, that's my understanding as well. I briefly looked into that last year during a discussion about Bosh being so kind as to re-sign with us in 2006. When the max is on the table, it's hard to refuse, because most players don't save a huge chunk of their rookies contracts. For that reason, amongst others, playing out the qualifying year is risky. All it takes is one bad injury and...boom, you might lose-out on over tens of millions of dollars. That's so much money to risk.

I agree with those who get the impression he might be trying to force a S&T.

We are talking about the Raptors here, a team that plays in the nba, a league where 29 of its 30 teams are located in the US.

Of course being marketable will be different/unusual for this team. How come we don't get quality FAs at a low price? How come we have to overpay?

How come the media doesn't respect us or pay much attention to us? How come other players can simply talk shit about Toronto Raptors? How come players can outright refuse to play for us? Paying money just so Alonzo mourning can win a championship?

FINALS Brandon Jennings

This summer raps should seriously make an effort to land Jennings. I'm down for trading Calderon for Jennings or Bayless for Jennings or whoever for jennings excluding DD/bargs/ed davis/ and JJ. He tweeted that he loves Toronto and him and DD can do some damage in the east. Maybe become the next westbrook/durant combo ? This should be our #1 priority and then finding some players that can SHOOT THE BALL ( get rid of Butler ). What do you guys think?

Jennings can score the basket, plays solid D, and is a starting PG. Problem is, this raps' squad needs a guy who can distribute the ball. Seriously, look at Bayless' stats as a starter from last season. They are quite comparable with Jennings. Plus, Bayless will demand far far far less $. I don't understand why Bayless gets blasted for being score first, pass second, but then Jennings is praised (but wait, he is also score first, pass second?). Also, Milwaukee really really really values him and would ask for a lot back.

A way to get him would be to take on salary. For example, Barbosa, Bayless and maybe $3 million for Stephen Jackson and Jennings. It would basically save Milwaukee $10 million for next season. Other guys to consider by taking on salary are: Gooden (who is on the books until 2014-2015, making 6.2 million this year and then 6.687 million for three years after this year), Mbah Moute(who makes 5 million this year and then less than 5 million for 3 years after this season), and Udrih (who I believe has a player option for next year at 7 million). Obviously taking on Jennings in this way could hamper the raps' financial flexibility.

I think the Westbrook/Durant combo is completely unrealistic.... and Jennings isn't coming here, guys don't leave from their rookie deal and they're not dealing Jennings for our backups..... remember that teams look at us as bottom dwellers and our pieces aren't seen in the same light as we think they should, Winning makes other players look better.
