This only makes sense if we move on from DeRozan. Strange though, for sure

Granted, $11 mil in the new salary cap is about $7.25 mil in the previous cap situation. $7.25 is about right for a bench combo wing I would think.

Re: Terrence Ross signs 33M/3yr extension

Wow this hit the airwaves literally within an hour of my voiced concerns.

Ok ... perhaps a bit much, but reality is this is the new NBA salary heights. Not much better than Carroll's contract or what Amir went away to get. It's just a new plateau for mediocre players that we'll all get used to.... I'm already shaking to think what Demar is going to get ...

Re: Terrence Ross signs 33M/3yr extension

Why do the fans care so much about the owners spending money?

We signed a good young player to a three year deal, he's not leaving us, that's a good thing right?

Nobody cares about them spending money. It's about them not using their resources efficiently and not putting the best possible team on the court. If anything we should've spent that money on keeping Amir who's a much better player. Given the same opportunity as Ross (3 seasons of mediocre play) I would bet money that a guy like Norman Powell(as well as a truckload of wing players in and out of the league) wouldn't do that much worse than what Ross has done in his 3 years.

Keeping Amir? I'm sorry but what has Amir done for us in the past few seasons? We probably have a better PF rotation without him and we're spending far less to achieve that.

Ross would have got paid elsewhere. The kid has great athleticism, can shoot and can defend. Does he always put it together? No. But he was forced into a staring role that defied his maturity, that's on our system, not him as a player.

We've kept a talented basketball player, you should be happy.

As I always like to ask, where would you rather we spent this resource? Who would you rather have (realistically) attracted to come a play in Toronto?

Name your preferred metrics and I'll guarantee you that Amir is worth more than Ross using that metrics. Higher PER, more win shares, better team defense, better team offense, you name it.

Call me a skeptic but I have a hard time imagining Ross getting 33 mil anywhere else. He's going to be 25 years old in a few months and hasn't averaged more than 10 points a game despite being a starter on a team that has lacked wing depth the past 2 years. He gets to the line 0.7 times a game the past year. ZERO POINT SEVEN TIMES. A 38 year old Vince Carter got to the line more than Ross last year. You can have all the athleticism in the world but unless you put those skills to good use you're better off showcasing those skills on hoop mixtapes than actual NBA games.

We overpaid for a mediocre 25 year old wing player that's a dime a dozen. I shouldn't be happy.

I was one of Ross' biggest supporter during his rookie year. The biggest knock on DeRozan has always been his lack of 3pt range and how he has the disadvantage of being a wing player without a 3pt shot in a league that's dominated by the 3. Ross on paper was suppose to be DeRozan with range. I believe I once suggested trading DeRozan because I believed that Ross would develop and surpass DeRozan by year 3-4. The problem is that Ross never improved. He's still pretty much the same player now as when he was a rookie.

What does that matter? Amir is beaten up and couldn't give you full starter minutes. Masai improved the PF rotation by letting him go.

I never said he would have been paid $33 million, but he would have been paid. Which means we would have lost him. For nothing.

This is all just opinion, you can't tell me what Ross is right now because we haven't seen a large enough amount of games to form an opinion on him in his new role.

That's the thing though. A beaten up Amir is still a better player than Ross. Amir couldn't play starter minutes because of his health. Ross couldn't give you starter minutes because he sucks. Remember that's why we got Carroll for? Because Ross sucks?

Basically you end up with either 20 min a game from Ross or 20 min a game from Amir. I'm sorry, I rather have Amir. Perhaps Amir can't play 30+ min a game but for that limited playing time he's good for at least 75 games a year and can actually make an impact when he does play.

I've seen him for 100+ games. I think I've seen enough to form an opinion. If every time a player gets benched means he'll mysteriously turn things around then teams should be handing out 10+ mil contract to every struggling young player. If Ross continues to suck then that would be the norm. If he turns it around that would be the anomaly. At 25 years old I just don't see it happening.

I don't think this even warrant a response. The boys at Raptors Republic even made a chart to demonstrate why theres no point to this signing.



The worst case scenario is that we spend a tad more on Ross next year by matching an offer. Although at 11 mil a year I honestly doubt we would save any money even if he has an improved season.

But we don't want or need Amir. We actually need a backup SF. We need a player like Ross.

Ross doesn't suck, you've just got your blinkers well and truly on.

It doesn't warrant a response because you haven't got one. Which player could the Raptors have added right now instead of Ross at the same value over the same amount of years?

Again, it doesn't actually matter. The team is proving my point. Masai knows what he is doing when constructing a franchise, we're 4-0 and people still find something to moan about.

I don't even understand what your question is dude. The contract ends after this season. Why the hell would we need to add anyone now? Are you seriously telling me that we can't find a backup shooting guard to play 20 min a game if we had to?

How about this, we don't even need to find anyone from outside the organization. Norman Powell. There, let him play 20 min and I can guarantee you that he won't average less than 8 ppg a game which is likely what Ross will end up averaging this year. I mean what planet are you living on where it's rough to find a wing player, a backup wing player that is, to play 20 min for your team.

But just for the sake of it, these are the guys that we can sign next year or try to get via trade(that won't take much assets) that will be cheaper than Ross.

Gerald Henderson
Courtney Lee
Aaron Affalo(if he opts out)
Evan Turner
Gerald Green
Jamal Crawford

The list goes on and on. I'm not even going to bother with the guys that we can trade for. It's the wing position for god's sake. Everyone has a spare.

I'll tell you an actual legitimate reason for signing Ross to this contract. In case DeRozan leaves via free agency, Ross can step in and be his replacement. This is the only reason that actually makes any remote sense in my opinion. Although if we lose DeMar without finding a replacement and had to replace him with Ross, the team is going down the toilet anyway.
