Don't get me wrong I'm happy the band is back together but I feel it might have been a slight overpay for Patterson and a definite overpay for Vasquez! Going into the off season I figured Patterson would be in the range of 5-5.5M & Vasquez would be 4-4.5M so with 2Pat it's not much of a stretch given the market demands but with Vasquez he's getting much more than he's valued at imo. I get that Masai and him go way back but he really scratched Grevis's back on this one! I know some people are happy because it's only a 2yr contract and they think it will correlate with KD's free agency, etc. but again imo you easily should've got him on a 3yr for that same amount give or take 1 or 2M.
Ultimately barring a trade we're down to the nitty gritty now before hitting the luxury tax and I still had hopes of landing both Blatche & Carter so every Mil counts. Masai is the man and I'm sure he's got still something in the works but I can't help but think his bond with Vasquez might've blinded him on that one. Thoughts?
