    I like this signing. Actually I like everything Masai did up to date. Then they gonna waive Q-Rich, sign another center.

    Valanciunas/Gray/?????
    Johnson/Hansbrough/Acy
    Gay/Novak/Daye
    DeRozan/Ross/Fields
    Lowry/Augustin/Buycks

    Strength seems to be the big deficiency. If Masai & McKechnie can conjure up a high calorie mixture we may get something out of AD. I remember people saying he would be a better version of Tayshaun Prince when he was drafted. Seems more like a Anthony Randolph. Low cost asset that might turn into something. Good signing.

    Yes, I am. You can call me whatever you like, so long as you don't call me late for dinner.

    He can talk how he wants. But he should be prepared for the reaction he will receive. No need for you to defend him..

    look when Masai does something wrong I will be the first person to jump on that, for now every single move has had an element of flexibility and involves a player that either does something extremely well, has the potential too or has shown it and for some reason taken a step back. When you are taking a gamble on someone regaining their form, I'd much rather it be 1 million for someone like Augustin then 6.5M for Fields. I'd much rather a stretch 4 that shoots damn near 50 percent on corner threes for 3.5 million, then a stretch 4 that shoots 30 percent on all threes for 10million. I'd rather a PG that can pass as a backup for 900k then one who can shoot you in or out of a game for 1.5m.

    Very good points! So it's safe to say that Masai Ujiri isn't like his mentor BC in giving large contracts to people who don't deserve it?

    It's not really a tank move to per say. It can either or to be honest. If we don't tank and we decide to attempt to make playoffs, it's basically gathering prospect to strengthen our bench in the future. If we do tank, it's fortifying our young players (should we choose to keep them instead of trading them for picks) which will be beneficial in the future. Buycks is good at attacking the rim, handles, and running the offence. He has potential to be a good backup point guard in the NBA. Daye is good at the three point shot and defense. He has potential to be a good three point role player. Either way, MU is definitely thinking of the gathering young players and hoping to land a good role player that will hopefully be a key piece in the future.

    I'd rather have a guy like Alan Anderson or Gary Neal instead of him. Don't understand what kind of ''high reward'' this signing is? jus' permanent warm bench

    To be favour Steve Novak was in the same situation as Daye. Just barely staying in the league. Intill he got his shot and showed he could be a rotation player. Daye has the potential to be a better defensive version of Steve Novak. Hopefully he stays close to Novak and soap up a lot of knowlegede on being a 3 point specialist:

    1 believes in low-cost gambles, while the other believes in overpaying limited talent. It's the first time Toronto has had a GM who doesn't look like he'll overpay for talent. Hopefully it works long term.

    Gary Neal, maybe. But Daye is an end of bench guy. Really teams shouldn't be going more than 8 or 9 deep on a regular basis. This deep into your reserves should be for cheap investments. The problem is that Casey would regularly go 10-12 players deep within the first 3 quarters of a game. That needs to change.

    austin daye= meh. needed a bench player and have stated want young guys who might become something and that is all this is. there is no one on this roster i can see not playing in favour of daye.

    only thing i don't understand is why not zubcic? the exact same skillset, younger and most likely cheaper.

    gay might as well be guaranteed as well.

    like i mentioned in another post. MU said that "2 year plan" in that SN590 interview, but in reality seems more like they are def aiming for 2014 FA.
    How is Gay guaranteed? If he has a good season he is virtually GUARANTEED to opt out in order to secure a long-term deal. Making 3M less in 2014-15 is worth securing an extra 50M in the following 3 years. If you disagree with this you haven't even been paying attention to free agency at all... ever.

    Especially with lots of teams clearing cap space for 2014 free agency. Once LBJ and Melo sign, Gay becomes one of if not the most sought after UFAs on the market.

    Maybe Zubcic is actually not at all ready.

    Maybe his contract has a buyout which makes the cost also really unappealing for an end of bencher.

    Maybe a guy who still needs to develop doesn't think the end of an NBA bench is the best place, compared to getting better minutes in Europe.

    Also Zubcic has not done anything to really distinguish himself, so maybe the team also wants him to keep developing, because it makes no sense to bring an unprepared player over if he's not ready.
