Raps Pick Up Option on Bargnani
 
Quote:

The Toronto Raptors on Monday exercised the fourth-year team option on the contract of forward Andrea Bargnani.

Bargnani, the first overall pick in the 2006 draft, is now guaranteed through the 2009-10 season. In accordance with the league’s collective bargaining agreement, the Raptors had until October 31 to exercise their option on Bargnani.

The fourth year of the deal will pay Bargnani $6.5 million, according to the league’s rookie pay scale.

Makes me sick that the Raptors are paying him that much, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. Heres hoping for more production:rolleyes:

Yeah, the rookie pay scale is a bit of a joke.

Nothing out of the ordinary here. If they didn't pick it up then he becomes an unrestricted free agent in that year. Colangelo better get something of value in return for Bargnani sometime though.

hm.. consider Bargnani a piece of stock trading in the market

if you start paying him sh!t.. you won't be able to get anything out of him if we do want to trade him in the future..

what i am saying is you don't want to diminish his value.. but to artificially inflate it a little.

Well when 2010 comes, 6.5 mil for AB is consider pretty cheap.

Look at bobby simmons, he's getting almost 8 or 9 mil this year.

Could be a good signing, as long as he plays well behind oneil and bosh. The guy that gets left out here is Humphries, who is probably a more tradeable asset right now, smaller contract and more consistent player.
