Sun Sentinel: Raptors getting 15Mil TPE/Picks

Quote:
The Heat also is finishing off a sign-and-trade agreement with the Toronto Raptors that will allow recently acquired power forward Chris Bosh to receive a six-year free-agent contract instead of the maximum five-year contract an outside free agent can receive. The Raptors, in turn, will receive a package of draft picks from the Heat and a trade exception of roughly $15 million.

when Bosh blows out his knees and lebron and wade start fighting for the ball, turning on each other as free agent additions marbury, iverson and shaq create massive distractions, these could end up being lottery picks!11!!!!1!!

heh.. I guess LeBron doesn't care because he has a lot more money coming in otherwise.. but something about it seems perverse. I said though after the Bosh-Wade ESPN announcement, Wade mentioned the possibility of taking less than max, but just wait until the ink is dry cause Bosh wants his max.

I don't know if we can get one, but this team needs a stud PG or SG. Prefferably a PG though. I just wonder if he's gonna use it all on one big player or use it on a package of players. Or he can maybe use some of it now and save 5+Mil for the deadline or next summer. Alot of possibilities.

it's great news.
this is NOT a bad team as is, and to say it is is simply inaccurate.

Its not a good team either.

Thing is, 2-3 players make a MASSIVE difference. If Amir and DD were to continue to grow, and kept improving, now its looking really good.

Having 19 million buck to play with to improve, 2-3 guy with trade value, and a few more pick for the next two years....


Not too shabby.

You see, he's the Wolf, he makes shit happen

LeBron isn't getting less money
just because they leave 30 mil on the table for the 6th year doesn't mean they won't make the same amount when they resin or sign somewhere else

Can't believe some sports reporters using the "he took less money " excuse

You're allowed to save TPE? Anyways, I think you're right. This team could use a stud PG and one I wouldn't mind go after is Tony Parker. Or BC can swing for the fences and try to acquire Paul!

+1

TPE/MLE/Expirings/Jose, Hedo to trade??

I've gotta say though, what he does with this will cement wether he's here past next season or not imo. He needs to solitify our PG position, something he hasn't been able to do since coming here.

We'll take it, this is great news because we could be a lotto team until 2015 which is when our owed picks lotto protection would have ran out

I actually agree with that, he will make up the extra year later. What he won't make up are the 10% annual raises Bosh gets vs the 8% annual raises LeBron gets. This ends up being even more money later on as I believe your next contract is based on the salary in final year of your expiring contract (I could be mistaken here).

In relation to the TPE.. so we have a year to use it. I wonder what they'll get. Unfortunately a couple of other teams have grabbed large TPEs (I believe Pheonix and Utah) so we have a little competition. Do you guys think BC will use it now, or will he try and wait to use it during the season (when a team fails to meet expectations and looks to dump assets)?

Its BC. His biggest signings & trade were JO, Hedo, and Kapono. Not a good history.
