Grange: Roko offered 2yr/5Mil to play overseas & AP news

The Toronto Raptors introduced their new model perimeter player, DeMar DeRozan, yesterday, even as it appeared the old model, Anthony Parker, is unlikely to return to the club.

The five teams to ask about Parker, a free agent on July 1st, include San Antonio, Boston, Phoenix, Cleveland and Oklahoma City. While their intensity of interest might vary, it's clear Parker will be able to find work and perhaps a multiyear deal in the NBA...

Another scenario could see Parker return to play in the Euroleague, where the market for good talent still appears strong. Raptors backup point guard Roko Ukic has been offered a two-year deal worth about $5 million U.S (net after taxes) to play for Greek power Olympiacos next season, or roughly double what his deal with the Raptors is worth, though he's expected to return to Toronto.
Do it Roko.

Then maybe we can have money for both Marion and Hedo.

The Greek team would have to get him out of his current contract to sign him. I do remember in the past Roko mentioning that the NBA is where he wants to be and he knew full well that coming over was not going to net as big returns starting out.

he's owed $1.5 mil
its not going to give us a lot of cap space if he goes
better to keep him since he doesn't cost a lot

They won't find a better player than him for his current price.

roko is going nowhere if its the Raptors decision, get over it, he's just going to be a cheap backup PG at this point in time, he's not the issue here on the team

we needing another PG doesn't mean he is the issue
its just means he's not enough, because basically you have to eliminate banks from being a backup in the rotation as he just sucks, so roko is the primary backup which is not good, but he's not the issue, he's still a developing player, maybe next year if he shows no improvement we can call him an issue, but not at this moment, especially when his contract has little impact on the salary cap

get rid of roko?? you're nuts if you think that. he's a gym rat, the KID's quick and he can pass, his shot needs some work but i'm sure he's working on it... if he's not glued to his iphone

You obviously know nothing about how the financials work. They'd need a lot more then Ukic gone. About $8 million more of currently signed players...
