That's too bad. I was hoping he'd be back as a backup PG/SG type playing around 20-25 minutes per game. He has value as that kind of a player.

I'd certainly rather have Bayless on the team than Landry Fields or Sonny Weems (is that QO still on the table?).

Too bad. I liked Bayless. Good guy to give you backup PG and some SG minutes. Also the kind of guy who get hot on a dime and pull the team out of a few scrapes. He also really liked living here and a happy player makes a better player.

This is the probably an unfortunate fallout of the Fields signing.

So I have a question: The QO was 4.3M for a year i believe (correct me if I'm wrong). Could the Raps technically now sign Bayless to a 3yr/9M type deal as a FA?

I wish we could somehow wrangle Tony Wroten from Memphis.

I didn't like Bayless all that much, but rather would have kept him instead of keeping Calderon's big contract.

Totally agree. I was not nearly as high on Bayless as some others here were but i'd rather have Bayless at 4 mill than Calderon. Wouldn't have minded giving the dude some burn since we're gonna suck anyways and then make a run at a top pick for next years draft.

This doesn't mean the raps won't resign bayless.

Their concern was that he would accept the qualifying offer for 4.3 when they can get him for a lot cheaper. They could probably get him for 2 years at about 4.

I still think there is a good chance he is our back up next year.


I just wish they could rescind their offer to fields.

It was to complete the Lowry trade;

If Bayless is re-signed at a number close to his qualifying offer before the offer sheet to Fields is issued, the Raptors should not have to complete any further moves to accommodate both transactions.

We have 7 million trade exception from Barbosa deal.
Maybe more to do with fields who is signing for more than the mid-level.

We are under the cap so we don't have the mid level.

Calderon's contract is signed and has to be paid. Bayless is a free agent.

Weems over Bayless? Just goes to show you how the market looks like for Bayless out there. Weems hasn't been in the NBA for a year and he's drawing more attention
