Colangelo is the worst, just when I was tricking myself into being optimistic about our possible future with Lowry and Valanciunas, we go and do this. Back to realizing we'll never go anywhere with him as our GM.

The Toronto Raptors are finalizing a four year, $40 million contract extension with DeMar DeRozan, league sources tell Y! Sports.

I think many of us knew he'd be wanting somewhere around that much annually. And I think most of us knew BC would prob. give it to him.

Wish he didn't though. Maybe with Curry, Lawson, Harden all signing deals, BC didn't want to lose out on his starting SG...

Guard DeMar Derozan's contract extension with the Raptors is incentive based and close to $42 million, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

I would much rather have an injured Stephen Curry...

Curry was injured for just one season. Hoping he isn't too injured this season.

DeMar needs to become a stud to warrant this money.

Sometimes you just need to cut your losses with disappointing players rather than continuing the mistake. I have a feeling this is mainly based on him being a past top 10 pick and the Raptors not having much else at SG because I can't see any justification of this deal based on talent/production.

The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday they have signed guard DeMar DeRozan to a multi-year contract extension. Several reports say the deal is for four years and around $40 million. We’ll update that info later tonight if needed.

“DeMar has worked very hard and has been a significant part of the building process here in Toronto,” said Raptors President and General Manager Bryan Colangelo. “We view DeMar as a young, athletic and talented basketball player whose character fits what we are putting together.”

worked very hard... to improve neither his ball handling or shooting.

significant part of the building process... which has led us to where we were 5 years ago.

young, athletic, and talented...otherwise spun as "no actual significant production"

character... he was very receptive to a contract extension and it was an effortless process because I overpaid by 5 million per season.

Throughout the preseason and the first game. I like this contract. It’s not over the top pricy and not a great steal. Pretty much the same contract as Taj Gibson/Jrue Holiday. Demar will breakout this year. I'll vouch for that

1) It is market going rate given Drue and Taj

2) We really wont know if its good or bad for 2 more years.

Might actually end up being a steal if he is Tmac in his prime - might be a dud if he is JRich last year -but I have no way of really projecting that right now.

We will know if this is a bad deal by the end of this year. By the time a player is in his 4th year, what you see is what you'll get in general. Let's just say it's not looking good. If he still can't shoot and dribble this year, what miraculous thing will he discover that will change that going forward?
