Haha, that is just a little bit more then wat he is making right now...I believe he wants a raise?

I say he gets about 5.5 for 3 years plus option for 4th, the guy is young and if he can get the ball to Bosh he is worth over 5 million per.

IF he wants something that will earn him 5-6 Million than i have no problem with that but if he wants more,we should let him play this season and if something happens than i guess we save money.

I'd start him at $6M/yr and give him a 4yr deal option for a 5th...I think its reasonable when you consider the avg player in the league makes close to $5m/yr

You think around 6 million a season is cat scratch for a guy who has barely played a season and a half?

I mean I love the guy, and cannot wait to see him play but precedent shows that someone who has only played that much and has had a pretty big injury should not make over 6 million per unless he has enormous potential and talent.

You're going to pay 5-6 million for a guy who can't shoot and can't play defense? He's quick and might be good in the run and gun system he hasn't proven anything. There is no way you can pay a Tyronne Lue clone that much money.

Lets wait until he proves himself to be a good player for our team. Then we can pay him the big bucks when he performs well.
