Default Got a Bonner?

Bonner agrees to contract with Spurs

Posted: Wednesday July 4, 2007 1:41PM; Updated: Wednesday July 4, 2007 1:41PM

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Matt Bonner has reached a three-year contract agreement with the San Antonio Spurs.

Bonner told the New Hampshire Union Leader that negotiations took less than three days. Terms of the contract haven't been disclosed, but he's expected to make more than the $2 million per season he got in his last contract.

"Right away, there was kind of a mutual understanding going into negotiations that I wanted to play for the Spurs, and they wanted me to play for them. It was an easy process," he said Tuesday.

Bonner, of Concord, plans to sign the contract in New Hampshire in the coming weeks.

Bonner, who spent the first two years of his career with the Toronto Raptors, averaged 12 minutes and 5 points per game in 56 games last season. Though he didn't play in the NBA Finals -- a four-game sweep over the Cleveland Cavaliers -- Bonner made nine postseason appearances during the Western Conference playoffs.

"Anytime you're a professional athlete, there can be a lot of uncertainty and unpredictability where you're going to play," he said. "I feel great knowing the situation I have in San Antonio and now having a three-year deal there."

Guy averages 12 minutes per game in the regular season with 5 points, and doesn't even ake an appearence in the most important series of the year (the finals), and he still gets paid more than 2 million a year? To me, something oesn't add up. It's f*ckng crazy how much players get paid (especially someone of his ability).

If we're going to applaud a player for crossing over Mark Madsen of all people, at least he's the NBA player who most closely resembles me.

What about the time he got in a scuffle with KG and the only one who could contain him was the mighty [read: Holy] Pape Sow?
Matt truly has earned his nickname, "The Artful Bonner" (no, your Elementary school education is not failing you, that is indeed a Dickensian reference to everyone's favourite pick-pocket)

Does that mean Ely is officially out the door? I wouldn't mind if the Jazz picked him up for cheap, I like his potential.

The Red Rocket.

Usually I would question a team giving Matt Bonner 10.5M over any amount of years, but the Spurs usually seem to know what they are doing. They are probably grooming him to be their next clutch weapon; not exactly Robert Horry, since his defense could never be duplicated by the Red Rocket, but heck those three point clutch shots could come in handy.

Anyways, , for this signing to blow up in the Spurs face. :)
