Default UPDATE: Bargnani Press Conference at 3pm Eastern

Quote:
Agent: Bargnani gets extension

Hedo Turkoglu is on the way and it appears that Andrea Bargnani will also soon have his long-term future secured with the Toronto Raptors.

Bargnani

Bargnani's agent, Leon Rose, told ESPN.com on Tuesday night that the Raptors -- who later this week will officially sign Turkoglu away from Orlando -- have reached an agreement in principle on a contract extension for the 7-foot Italian, who was selected No. 1 overall by the Raptors in the 2006 draft.

The deal, according to NBA front-office sources, would span five seasons starting in 2010-11 and earn Bargnani an estimated $50 million.

Rose declined to discuss contract specifics.

Formally signing Bargnani to an extension this month, coupled with Turkoglu's forthcoming arrival, would give the Raptors a firm handle on at least two-thirds of their frontline for the next few years, as they continue to try to convince face of the franchise Chris Bosh to commit his long-term future to the team.

Bosh is also eligible for a contract extension later this month but has said he is intent on playing out next season and waiting until the highly anticipated summer of 2010 to decide whether to stay in Canada or relocate.

Senior writer Marc Stein covers the NBA for ESPN.com.

Great. Very glad to hear it, and I look forward to Bargnani backing that up this season.

That's definitely an agreeable price in my opinion. I also believe he hasn't hit his ceiling yet, and we'll likely be underpaying him immensely when he does.

i think its a good deal both ways, i mean look at all the work turky boy had to do to earn at 10mil contract, and ppl say he isnt worth it.... AB has had half a year in his career that warrants that kind of $, but based on age, potential and his seemingly good work ethic, it's more then fair to think he will continue on the path and be worth this kind of $, worht more?? im not sure, fair deal that allows flexability in future and more $ on contract if for w/e reason we want to move him one day = great signing

this is a good deal considering he can average 20/8 soon and Centers are usually overpaid just for averaging 10/5 for a season

Bosh got a four-year, $65 million extension in '06
