Raptors give extension to Andrea Bargnani
 
Quote:

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.

That is some heavy money for him. Don't think he is nearly worth that yet.

With Turkoglu and AB getting big money, it looks like Bosh is on his way out of town.

Damn 10 Mil a year? He's probably around the 7-9 mil range, but still... Doesn't sound right to give him that much.

Why so? They have bird rights so it's not as if they can't pay him.

:roll:

Denial.

Get what you can get for Bosh and move on. Look toward any young team with talent and do what you can. GS and OKC sound like good choices. If GS can get off to a good start, maybe trading for Bosh could make them a top-6 team in the West.

Just saying...

As a Heat fan, I'm glad... put's more pressure on TO to make a playoff run this year.

With Bosh knowing that Turkoglu, Bargnani & Calderon are locked into large contracts, meaning they won't have any free agent options come next offseason, if they can't make the playoffs next season, he's gone.

100% sure about that.

The guy pretty much averaged 20-7 for when he was a starter last year...discount in my book :rockon:

He definitely didn't earn it. Colangelo probably gave him that contract on the basis that he thinks Bargnani will improve to the point where he's worth more than that. And Bargnani jumped at that contract because he knows at this point he's not worth that much and who knows if he'll ever make that significant of a leap.

No he didn't.

This will be one of those untradeable contracts in a year or two. Now I remember how dumb GM's can be. Don't we see this all the time? How did "Player X" get $10 million a year? Perfect example.

$10 million a year for Bargnani? Only the Toronto homers are happy about this.

"He's so worth it!!!!!" :lol

The way he was playing for the second half of the season he definitely earned it. Call it a bargain comparing to what we see in today's contracts.
