    We even saved just around 3 mill for the first year, no? BC made this move to trigger another for sure. Probably another SF to sign and one of the PGs go, for another PG. Let's see what happens.

    Barbosa is an SG? doesn't that mean he will "undermine" Derozen development?

    I imagine ppl are happy over getting back a shorter and cheaper contract mostly.

    38 mil guaranteed/4 yrs vs 14.7 mil/2 (assuming barbosa picks up option)

    Turk's a better player than Barbosa, but the Raps are getting rid of a guy who underperformed and caused the organization and fans a lot of grief. The Raps get a serviceable player but I think the best part is they get flexibility for the future (after the 2011/12 season).

    Think of it as Kleiza and Barbosa for Turk. Kleiza is 25, and Barbosa is 27, with a contract that expires in a couple of years. Suns want to try to win now (for Nash), Raptors are building for the future. This provides tons of financial flexibility for the Raptors in case another team is willing to trade talent for financial relief.

    This is making the rounds lately - I think most Raptors fans will be feeling the same way when they hear the news:

    On second thoughts, I feel a bit bad about Hedo and his family. I thought they really looked forward to living in Toronto... now they're in one of less culturally diversive/accepting states (though noone will confuse them with mexicans... i think?)

    I see where you guys are coming from, cause barbosa is in that wierd place where he is too small to be a SG, doesn't have the ability to be a point guard and plays no D.

    Good job BC. He's cleaning up his mess and we suddenly have a lot of money to spend.
    NICE!

    She never liked it here. She stayed in their Orlando home. He was just here when needed, mostly. That was written during the times of the first comment he made to that Turkish media guy.

    Jus when EVERYONE dissed BC for making a contract for Hedo, but, most importantly, they said he would never get someone to bite that contract from us. LMAO...he proved nuff people wrong and must be laughing at them from what he accomplished. This is only part of a next move. This is gonna be an interesting week. Good for you, BC. Now, you can pop them big-ass collars of yours...lol.

    You'd say the mangoes taste fresher in Toronto, if you got 53 mill...lol. I would, if I was a money-hungry player like Hedo.
