$10 million a year for Bargnani? Only the Toronto homers are happy about this.

You don't live in Canada so you probally only see about 2 raptors game a season. You don't have the right to judge.

Half a season shouldn't earn you 50 million bucks over 5 years, but anyways as I said in the same such thread in the Raps forum the going rate for NBA bigs is very high these days so it comes as no surprise and has the potential to be a bargain depending on his continued improvement. But as of now no he has not earned it.

Not too bad of a deal on both sides, Bargnani showed signs last year reminds me of a young Dirk and if he turns out to become that then i'm sure Toronto would be happy. Calderon, Hedo & A.B. is a good core to work around, of course there are gunna lose Bosh but if they can pick up a big man with a defensive presence and a scorer at sg within the next few years they could be something to watch in the next few years

WOOOOOOOOOW, that has got to be a top 4 team in the east am i right?????

NO? I guess all that money doesn't buy what it used to........

"He's so worth it!!!!"

Who has ever said we would be a top 4 team? Sure, we might be able to get the 6-8 seed in the weak east.

And adding 45 FG% and shooting 42% from three for a Center. His defence is far developed than most people think. He can defend todays Centers. He does that again next year and i am extremely happy especially for a big man who is only 23 years old. 10 Mil is not that max and i am preety sure if Bargnani got this team like how Bosh got this team after Carter left,all you here would be talking about Bargnani being worth the max.

Bryan Colangelo again living up to his reputation as a sh*t GM. Hows Jermaine O'Neal working for ya? Oh wait.

You don't pay role players 50 mill either.

If he comes out with another ~16/6 campaign... the Raptors are screwed out of their money.

Lakers were paying Odom, Gasol, and Bynum considerably more than that....

Oh I am fully aware..

But Im also aware that in the past few years bargs has only delivered pockets of good games.. and they are only called good because of how awful he usually is..

He has potential, but realistically he does deserve to make 10 mil a year.. even if its not star money..

First off... Gasol is not a role player...

Secondly... They never signed Odom to that contract... the Heat did, & they signed him as an offensive focal point. And besides, Odom probably won't get a 5yr/$50M contract. And it's pretty easy to say right now Odom > Bargnani.

Third... Bynum is already proving he may be overpaid.

I can make a whole list of player that make more than 10 mill a year (or close to it) that aren't franchise players.
