    Anybody else want to bet that the second year isn't guaranteed?

    Reasonable price for a backup big, I guess. One million bucks for a warm body isn't terrible.

    Would've preferred someone who could play center, not just the height of one. One question. How does one manage to be 7 feet but only way 200 lbs? Put in perspective, Kevin Durant is 6'9 and 215. He's not good, he doesn't fit, I don't like this signing.

    Would you rather have Daye, or Jamaal Magloire? Because we are talking about the same spot on the bench.

    It seems like MU likes signing low risk young unproven talent which is better than overpaying for role player. I don't hate the signing. Just a "meh". I guess he has potential to be a good role player on our team.

    Exactly. since there's really no money to throw around, Masai seems to be going for players who are low risk(salary-wise), high reward types with a chip on their shoulders and has lots to prove.

    I'm fine with the signing.

    Playing devil's advocate, the only logical reason I can think of for this signing is that he shoots the 3 at a decent rate, but that's about all he does. I think there are better options. Waste of a roster spot IMO.

    Daye is a cheaper version of Bargnani with a better PER, higher shooting percentages (2 and 3 pointers). Like Andrea he is a terrible rebounder and bad defender to boot. The Raptors have 15 players, let's start the season!

    For anyone wondering why we did this.

    He's 25
    He's 6'11
    He can play multiple positions

    And here's the important thing,

    He shot 42% from 3 last year, his 3rd time shooting over 40% (including a 50+% season)

    Dude if you're taking offense to the term "nincompoop" which is about a 3rd grade level insult, then you really are one...

    I'm not offended by it. It's just unnecessary. You do this in almost every thread you post on. Once someone doesn't agree with you or you don't like what someone else says, you go and make comments on other people personally. It's so stupidly unnecessary. You could have easily said "For those who are wondering why we did this". It just shows immaturity on your part!

    Ok fair enough I see your point. I'll edit it and try to dial back on the insults.

    Sorry it's just how my friends and I talk when we discuss sports, I guess it's not appropriate here though.

    Just don't understand how an NBA player can not gain any kind of weight in 4 years?
