Default bargnani a max contract player

I think although bargnani's development has been slower than many would like he is still on pace to earn over 11/12 million per year- probobly closer to a max deal

Is there anyone who still believes bargnani will be resigned to a contract of 10 mill per or less?

When kenyon martins and rashard lewis get max deals there will surely be teams ready to offer bargnani one of those deals

I know I want bargnani on the nuggets at any price when he becomes a fa and nugs have only carmelo and nene under contract, will raptors fans still want bargnani at a max contract deal?

I wouldn't unless he consistently averages over 20ppg, 7-8rpg and good percentages like he's been doing since January. It's best to retain assets as best as possible, and if we can only resign him for 14M than we can trade him later on if necessary. I'm sure teams will be looking to trade for him.

9per thank you. Times are tough. No giant contracts are going to be handed out to anyone who's not HOF material.

No I don't want Bargnani at a max deal. I've been arguing that I don't like Bosh at max dollars so I sure as hell don't want Bargnani for max dollars. My limit for him is probably $11-12 mill if he keeps up the good work for a full season.

That sounds about right. But considering he is a restricted FA in 2010-2011, I would match any offer for him. Even if it's a max offer. Just because we can't afford to lose any assets at this point.

I would give Bosh a max offer this summer as well. If he's too greedy to take that, then he should be traded before the first game of the season so we know what our team will be like and there's no drama like you mentioned DJ. I don't think Bosh is a max player either, but we need to retain all of our assets. No more T-Macs.

Bargnani is NOT a Max contract player. If Chris Bosh isn't a MAX player then no way is Bargnani.

Chris Bosh is a MAX player but he just needs help!

Bargnani is good but no way a MAX

I think the brunt of the laughter is towards elgringos claim that Bargnani is a max player.

no way in hell is bargs a max contract player or even close to that right now. An argument for Bosh can be made but never for Bargs. This thread should be locked and deleted before anyone else reads this and associates this loser with raptor fans.

If someone wants to pay him over like $10-11 milli per, **** it let them have him. Unless we haven't retained Bosh's services.

I would match the offer when he becomes a restricted FA if it's another 2-3M more. This team is starved for talent and trade assets and Bargnani is both of those. We need to keep our cards close to our chest.
