Default So whats up with Rasho?

Everyone talks about him coming back like it's a done deal. So what is the hold up on an offer from BC?

It's not like we would offer him MLE so therefore waiting on JJ should not impact our offer. We would probably offer Vet min or maybe 2 yr 4 mil? or 1 yr 3mil? I'm guessing but I dont see why BC is waiting if he has interest at all?

My guess is that they're pretty confident he's going to resign so they're not in too much of a rush. These cats need a break too.

probably because signing jack is the priority since he is an RFA and changes could still happen, then the next priority is delfino because he's going to be a "core" player in the rotation
rasho is the least of the 3 guys and his contract will probably be dependent on the contracts of the other 2

I think Rasho is much more important to the team than Delfino will be, considering we have already gotten a few wings and Delfino is still somewhat injured.

Look at it this way, would you rather have a lazy, heartless scrub coming off the bench (PO'B) for Bargnani, or a smart, savvy vet that is a great influence in the locker room, will provide good defense, and will help us beat teams with dominant centers in the league that last year not only lit up Bargs, but then devoured whoever else was guarding them while Bargs was on the bench (Voskhul, PO'B)?

Like people said, I think he only wants to sign in Toronto, though, so after the Jack ordeal plays out, we should see Rasho and Delfino come on board quickly.

Something tells me Colangelo sleeps with a headset on. I'm not sure any good GM is taking vac time in the middle of summer league and free agency.

I think so too. Rasho is a glue guy. I think in his two seasons in Toronto he provided more to the team dynamic than the much more talented Jermaine O'Neal did.

He has to wait to see if the Jack offer is matched. Because if not he has to sign someone else (Kleiza or Barnes?) and the money available to spend will be different and he may want to use the MLE alone on signing Rasho + one of those players and not touch the Bi annual/Vet minimum.
