I like the deal straight up.

Gas is a professional. He would help change the direction of the team. Not win now... not really.. thats not what the deal is about.

Mentor Jonus - yes !

More importantly his deal expires in 2 seasons....

If I have my salary cap facts line up.....

Just as we need to (likely) sign KLow to a max deal...

1) Gasol comes off the cap at $20M
2) Amir comes off the books same time at $7 Mill ?
3) Landry enters the final year of his deal and as an expriing deal would seem to be "potentially attractive"

I would hope this deal gives the Raps the ability to retain and sign Ed Davis as well.

Klow Derozan Davis Jonus is a real good nuclueus. And if we still had say $12Million net cap space after the increases - we might be able to attract the impact wing player to that core.

I would cheer horse for that team in 2016.
