    We have 7.3M to spend now. Safe to say Vasquez is staying.
    Raptors are still looking to add an impactful defensive wing as well. It's far from safe to say Vasquez is staying.

    6 mil is pretty reasonable i guess

    be interesting to see what happens next year when Amir, JV and Ross are all in line to get re-upped
    Just Amir. 2 more years for the other guys

    actually when you consider he basically plays as much as amir and is starter quality for when amir inevitably rolls an ankle its a solid deal

    It is great deal ... He is healthier than Amir and his shot is more smooth. combination of him and Amir will really give us a piece of mind in that position.

    I don't think it can seriously be called a "steal." Best-case scenario, we paid roughly market value for him.
    I was hoping for 3/$15 or 4/$20, so it's only $1M more per season than I was hoping for. $13M for Amir & Patterson isn't bad, but I still long for an upgrade at the starting PF spot... though I expect I'm in the minority. Much like Amir, I hope Patterson grows into and earns this deal over the next 3 seasons.

    This is also an insurance just in case Amir's ankles get too serious, good resign!

    Seeing how Orlando was offering him a starters job and probably a longer paycheck, we 'stole' Ppat from them.
    Orlando was offering him a starting gig on a team that A) isn't going to contend this year and likely not next, B) just signed Ben Gordon because that's how much room they have to gamble, and most importantly C) just drafted Aaron Gordon, so if 2Pat was indeed offering a starting gig, he had to realize he probably wouldn't be starting for long.

    If rumours are correct and Orlando was offering 2Pat more money, financially it still makes more sense to play for Toronto at a slight discount; on a three year deal his next contract will be at 28, and given Amir's health 2Pat will get almost-starter-minutes here anyway so he'll have lots of time to pump his stats and get that last big contract the next time around.

    Patman was so much better than I expected, I'm glad we have him as insurance against an Amir injury.

    If MU can land us a bigger SF we are ready to open the door and get on the floor...

    13m for an Amir/2Pat platoon is better than just about any single power forward you could get for the same amount of money. Besides, our real position of need is SF. If we sign Greivis for $4m, we'll have only $4m left for a final wing upgrade and a final point guard and who knows who that ends up being. Al-Farouq Aminu is probably our best option.

    Kyle/Greivis/Buycks
    DeMar/Ross/Williams
    Aminu/Landry/Bruno
    Amir/2Pat/Psycho T
    Jonas/Hayes/Bebe

    Not bad.

    EDIT: Dammit, I forgot about Steve Novak.

    How much cap space do we have left after this signing?

    Do we have a chance to sign Ariza now if we don't go after G.V.

    With Lou Williams , I think the need for SF is much more than the need for PG.

    Happy for 2 Pat -- much better situation than Orlando. Hope this means GV is back. Tbh, I hope that they move Novak to create more space for a big wing. I was assuming that they were keeping him until they had 2 Pat signed (as insurance). Novak never really made sense on this roster (unless he's a glue guy behind the scenes).

    Probably very little, don't think we can resign Vazquez, probably a sign in trade Vazquez + Hansborough for a defensive Wing like Aminu or Ariza.

    I am hoping that Val will improve enough to make an upgrade unnecessary. We just need one star big and the other guys can focus on filling a role.

    We really will need some improvement from the sophs (juniors?). We're going to be much better scouted next year.
