Pops Mensah-Bonsu to Maccabi?
 
Quote:

There are rumors in many different european media about a possible deal of ghanese power forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu (2.06-PF) will be signing a 2+1 seasons deal with Maccabi Tel Aviv. Bonsu becomes another player in a very long list of players that have been associated with rumors to Maccabi.
The Hoop

Here's the opening for Blair... If the Raptors go with Blair in the draft. I liked Pops, he busted his ass.

Gurk 05-28-2009 05:47 PM

If we take Blair I don't care if Pops is ever back.

Someguy again 05-28-2009 05:52 PM

pops + blair >>> O'Bryant + Voskhul

send away the two PFs with no value and keep ones who actually gave a shit or look decent.

I'd rather have Blair/Pops over Voskhul/O'bryant anyday.

True. :haha:

I'm just saying i want Pops to stay and Voskhul/O'bryant to go if we also get Blair.

Dark Knight 05-28-2009 06:01 PM

LOL

2 threads with the same article

Belsius 05-28-2009 06:02 PM

Merged.

VanCity 05-28-2009 06:17 PM

but if we get blair, we will have pops, blair, hump and bosh......4 PF??......and if we draft blair at #9, there is no way pops will be getting minutes.....and what about humps??

Dark Knight 05-28-2009 06:21 PM

humps is gone, so is pops imo.

Gurk 05-28-2009 06:24 PM

Hump better be gone. I don't want him anymore

-Humphries is likely gone
-Pops 50/50
-Joey is likely gone
-Banks is as good as gone
-Kapono i'm sure will be shopped around hard and if Bosh is traded, he's gone as well imo

Pops worked hard to come to NBA... he wont give that up

GrannyFro 05-28-2009 07:05 PM

bad move letting pops go, instant energy off the bench.
this team will once again have no heart on its roster
and with calderon as the point, the team is already at a huge disadvantage in that department.

more and more doubts about colangelo every day. maybe its just the grass

zachus 05-28-2009 07:29 PM

Pops' energy was nice, but it wasn't like he was making a huge difference out there. Once teams figured out what he was all about his contributions curtailed.

Apollo 05-28-2009 09:03 PM

I'm thinking he's going to Maccabi because they're paying the most...A scrub can go over there and make as much as a quality NBA role player. A good player can make big bucks...There were rumors last year that an overseas team was planning to offer LeBron over $40M/yr to come play with them after his current contract ran out. There was a similar rumor with Kobe too.

I agree but if the money is better then of course he will leave.

I remember hearing rumors like that last year too...A team from Greece or Spain was willing to pay that much back before the world went into recession
