Default Re: Who do we want in RETURN???

I'm not sure you are grasping how this financially HELPS the Raptors.

The Raptors are giving up $16M and receiving $15M in contracts. That gives them $1M more this year. So that gives you $1M more for this off season. Raef and Rasho's contracts each end after next season ($12.7M and $8.4M, respectively). If you keep Rasho, you only get $8.4M for spending on free agents next year. If you take LaFrentz, you get $12.7M extras to spend on free agents next year (this is why LaFrentz is WIDELY coveted). That gives you $1M more this summer and $4.3M more next summer. Now if you are looking at keeping Rasho long term, thats one thing, but salary wise every GM in the league would take $12.7M coming off the salary cap rather than $8.4M.
