According to Doug Smith his sources have told him that Carlos is likely heading to play in Russia next season. :(

Im guessing hes getting something in the neighbourhood of $5 million a season over there, which is far more than any legit offer he got from the NBA.

Whats it mean for the Raptors? Nothing, really.

They retain his rights for as long as the qualifying offer (about $2.7 million) is on the table (a year) but its not included in the calculation of the NBAs tax.

I heard Carlos had a couple of offers in the NBA the most significant coming from Detroit but that the money wasnt close to what he wanted.

I heard about that one this morning too.

Looks like money was his primary / only concern. can't really blame him for that, but he will be missed in Toronto. Apparently in Russia, pay in untaxed so he would be making much more than he would here.

^^and generally the player are given cars, houses etc so their salary is basically all theirs.

Adams will fill his roll nicely...

shit, I will miss him. :(
