Veteran players, unless we throw extra cash, will NOT come to Toronto Raptors.
They want to be on a part of winning team, not like Raptors..

Pietrus came for the vet minimum... maybe it's time to demand respect rather than cry poor. Stop overpaying for crap and make better decisions.

Pietrus had moments last game where he looked like an elite perimeter defender, though he looked rusty when shooting.

I was skeptical, but if he can D up consistently and provide a 3 point threat, he could be a great fit.

It's early still, but it looks to me like a really nice signing (hope his shot starts falling).

He gets paid 5mil.

But, I believe he counts as about 6.25mil against the cap.

This is because his cap hit is calculated as the average yearly salary over the contract.

hoopshype also doesn't list how Amir's last season 2014/2015 is non-guaranteed and that Bargs has an ETO for 2014/2015 (he makes 10.75 million next season and his ETO is for 11.5 million).

They're averaging it out. He's not making the same every season, the final season is 8.2Mil (poison pill). The first two seasons are 5Mil + 5.5Mil.

Yep. When it comes to cap calculations, poison pills are spread out over the duration of the contract.

Cause for the next 18 months, and the 12 after, he's going to suck balls.

He'll be fine once healthy, at that price as long as he contributes off the bench he's not bad.

that's based entirely on opinion and not fact. I saw him last year, he was not very good.
