But at least you are being reasonable with your assessment of slightly paying more. That's not what Porn said though. He started this conversation by telling us that we shouldn't have a negative opinion because it's not our money. Again, if that's his position then he shouldn't have a problem with us paying anybody the max because it's not our money.

That said I don't think this move will "kill the team" financially. A move doesn't have to be apocalyptic for it to be a bad move. I just don't see any reason why we need to lock up an unproven player(not that young, turns 25 in a few months) who had no chance of becoming a starter under our current roster.
There aren't any other viable options out there right now. If you guys were signing Ross for 33 mil while there was a quality 3 on the market I'd agree, but that player just doesn't exist right now.

Maybe a guy like Toby Harris is available at the deadline, but if that's the case, Ross will be the primary going to Orlando with picks being added to even the deal. Either way, you need him to either be your small forward right now or use him to get a better one in the future. Young athletic players are worth a lot in the league even if they aren't putting up much for stats. If he gets to 27 and he's still putting up the same stats and you guys are stuck with him, I agree with you 100%. Right now at worst though he's quality trade bait.

The thing is we don't really need a quality option. We just need a bench wing player that can play 15-20 min a game. We already have Carroll and DeRozan as starters. We have James Johnson who can play the backup 3 and Cory Joseph who can play both guard spots. We still have rookies Delon Wright and Norman Powell that can play both guard spots. This is why I'm frustrated by this signing. We should've waited until the end of the year. If Ross has a breakout year (unlikely since he won't be starting over DeMar or Carroll this year) then we can just match offers in the off season. If he continues to play like before then we just jettison him and go with our younger guys.

Considering I forgot about Carroll for some reason, that's fair. Ross should still be your primary backup at the 2 and 3, but it's not like you guys absolutely needed to lock him up.

Best case scenario is show casing him and hoping he plays well, and then packaging him for a better starting power forward.

I'm just really not that bothered about Terrence Ross being signed for 3 years. I'm not sure what else to say.

And you actually think that. Like you honestly, truely believe that.

That is why I'm done posting on here. You're an idiot. So many of you are just delusional morons that it makes this place unpostable.

I came here to check in on fantasy league and made the mistake to look around again.
R-stars opinion on a Hill, Nash and 1st for Hibbert rumor

Re: Terrence Ross signs 33M/3yr extension

Raptors salary next year will be $72M. Cap is expected to be $70M. I assume with no cap space they figure they might as well use birds rights to re-sign a young player like Ross. Also not sure if he will exercise it, but DeRozan has a player option next year. So, maybe this is a backup option if DeMar decides to opt out and we can't re-sign him.
