oh bargs, your contract looks better and better with each passing day. Hell, Amir's contract looks better.... Klieza, even.

It's interesting to say the least.
Its a Kyle Lowry type deal

Me to - he was never allowed to earn minutes ahead of Bargnani - it was nice to see him flourish in an environment where he was allowed to compete for his playing time.

I wouldn't say he's a bargain, but i would say he's getting the salary he deserves for what he has accomplished so far in his career. Hump on the other hand is overpayed by 5Mil/yr imo

Bargs in theory is practically the pf version of Rudy gay... 20 point scorer, average defense bad rebounding... A lot of people on here underrate bargs. If he left this team would be set back along way. He is IMO a top 5 pf in a league dominated by guards

wow and sadly i dont think this is the craziest deal of the off season. its close though, very close. Brooklyn Nets better be making a lot of money this year because they sure do love to over spend.

Yeah this is definitely the craziest deal of the offseason so far. The other ones you could say to yourself, ok I get why they overpaid because the player is really talented and theres a high likelyhood of them getting matched if the money was lower, but in this case, what in the fuck? Who were they bidding against? Charlotte? Was Charlotte really offering Hump that much???

Both King and Jordan are horriawful for getting in to a bidding war for Humps. Humps is solid but hes arguably not even a starting caliber PF. Yes he put up some numbers last year, but he's not good on defence and it's yet to be determined if he can play within the confines of a good set offence on a good team. I guess we'll see this year.

At least the contract is only 2 years though. Theyve already overspent with JJ/Lopez/GWall, may as well make it a foursome.

i don't see why this is surprising. the ownership has billions. the team is waaaaay capped out. they need a starting pf, and have no other way of getting one. he can grab boards and hustle, and the deal is only 2 years. there is no down side, except billionaires spending what is pretty much chump change. no brainer.

Maybe mid season when they can trade Brook, but why would ORL want Brook and a bunch of late 1sts?

If the season starts with Howard on the Magic then he will be going to the Nets.

Oh hey, I'm not saying they have a chance, I have no idea, I just feel like they think they do.
