Compare that to Turkoglu and Bagnani's deals and Toronto should feel happy about those, even if it's one year extra.

WOW.

This could potentially go down as one of the worst deals in NBA history.

8 million for a hustling backup bigman who can rebound and...hustle.

Yeah.

CLE essentially had him sit out for nothing a year+ ago because they wanted him signed long term for cheap then they just give in? 8 million for a guy whose going to be a backup for you for 5 years and has no chance of starting if you want to contend.

Just horrendous. Did they think they were signing Odom or something?

Flopping isnt a quality of any kind. I was trying to be kind on one of my most hated players ever without bringing that up but I guess I failed.

I hate you Varabitch. Youve brought shame to the great game we love.

It happens when you're trying to keep your star player happy.

Eight years ago we gave JYD a 6 year 40 million dollar contract.

-10 mil+ JYDs awesomeness and ACTUAL defence>>>>>Varabitch.

It just goes to show everyone how stupid Ferry is. You need a versatile PF that can score and he locks into the guy that proved he couldnt do anything of that nature. Unless theyre somehow making a trade for David West they fucked up their entire offseason.

No one will be able to score on this team.

I think this is in anticipation for the two 7'0 that LA has...

it's going to be an interesting year in the NBA to say the least. I dont think i've ever been so excited for the next season by July.

$50 mil for a guy with no offense and flops/bitch slaps on defense
he's a bench player

what happens next year if LeBron and Shaq are gone
Sideshow is the face of the franchise

I hate Varejao. He's at most a $4mil/year guy. That guy probably leaves his hair all long and fluffy just to make his flops more believable. That hair of his goes all over the place when he bobs his head

Not a good move at all by Cleveland. They should've given this bum a deal similar to the one that Birdman got.

Apparently Cavs couldn't find any other power forwards and Lebron wanted Varejao to stay
