Re: Deadline over: Bargnani still a Raptor
The only reason I am ok with keeping Bargnani is because there is a ETO on the last year of his contract meaning next year would be realistically his last year making big money.
Maybe he will start performing next year knowing it's likely a contract year that will break or make his career. Then we can ship him out of town as an expirer and obtain another piece for our core like we did when we got Rudy for basically the expiring contract known as Jose Calderon.
Next year I can see a deal like Bargnani and Ross for another overpaid, overrated "superstar" if Colangelo is still in control. That's what he does best.
