    Default Kleiza & Gray picked up their player options




    Unsurprising news.

    Anyone have information about Linas status? Is he healthy or not?

    Kleiza could be useful in making a deal happen. Teams will be looking at attempting to shed salary due to tax implications and his roughly 5 million dollar expiring deal could mean up to 15 million in tax relief to some teams.

    In other words we might be able to save the amnesty for Bargs

    We're not going to amnesty Bargs. Why in the hell would we? It's been said a million times, and you being a mod there is no way you don't already know, but we don't get any cap space from amnestying bargs, we're just further away from the luxury tax. The only purpose it would serve is having us pay Bargs to play for someone else. I'd rather play him 15 minutes a game and get something for our money.

    Just to be rid of him, and not have to take back anything terrible in order to do so.

    Did I say it would free up cap space? Although it would for next summer (2014)

    That's great. I'd rather play him no minutes and since its not my money I don't much care what they get for it.

    This is off topic, but Bargs isn't even useful as an expiring contract this year. He's a 4 million dollar bench big getting paid 11 - 12.

    He's Moderator of Raptors Republic not an Executive of the Toronto Raptors. As per a later post, obviously he knows but if he didn't, it's understandable.
