What the f^%&???

The situation in Miami is 180 opposite from what it was in toronto. Nobody listened in Toronto because they sucked.

Miami players fall into two categories. SUPERSTARS, and roll players with absolutely no questions about where they stand, or what their job is. Its why this team is working right now.

Apparently because he doesn't smile.

LOL. It's like 3 different threads. Let's put it another way. If Ed turns into Al Horford in the next 2-3 years and it's time to re-sign here, who can honestly say they would be surprised if he's looking at teams like L.A., Chicago, Dallas, NY? (No coincidence that those are also teams willing to pay luxury tax). I'd even throw in OKC and NJ.

Who'd be surprised? That's why no one can say it's crazy for anyone to be under the opinion that he'd leave.

So what you're saying is we save other teams the work involved in developing young players and that we end up supplying them with a finished project. It's like we're other teams' AAA-teams.

It's way too early to be worried about this scenario. And assuming some of the FA rules stay the same, the Raptors will still be in a position to offer Davis the most lucrative contract. In addition, if teams are over the cap, they'll have to negotiate a S&T.

Then there's the possibility that the Raptors may become a competitive team. Davis may decide to stay around with a team on the rise. We've also seen recently that marketplace is overrated for younger players, who are more willing to sign a long-term deal with their original team. It's only when they've had 7, 8, or 9 years in the league when they opt to change teams.

On that note, you could be right. One of the things the league is currently trying to establish in the new CBA is that it will be way more lucrative to stay with the team that drafted you than to leave. We can probably call it the 3 amigos rule if they succeed. Probably will only apply to new draftees though. Yessir. Enes Kanter. Raptor for life.
