I think they're still looking for a Center. If Bargnani is one of those inside outside guys Rasho could be the back up center or even just another big body to throw at the true Center's that the Raps face. Keep in mind the Raps got rid of Bonner for this deal. That means that there is room in the lineup for a Bargnani type player.
He might be overpaid but cash was included in the deal. I actually think it is even. And we got rid of Williams contract, plus have more cap room. Not much, but it is noticeable. I guess no Pryzbilla for Raps (Thank God).
His contract is not great but it is only around 800,000 more than bonner and williams combined. Rasho had a bit of an off year last year losing time to Nazr but played pretty well the previous years next to premier pf's in Garnett and Duncan. Definetly would have preferred Swift or Magloire but Raps still have cap flexibility and look a lot better than they did this morning.
wow out of all the trade rumors and speculations there was not even one close to this.....shows how much we should pay attention to them......but i like them, cuz it gives me imagination of what the raps could be....it tickles my fancy
