    Default Noah Deal Shows Value of Amir Signing

    The Chicago Tribune reported the deal is worth about US$11 million annually with incentives that could take it higher.

    The Globe And Mail
    Lets compare and keep in mind That Amir is 2 years younger and his contract is 1/2 yes HALF the cost of Noah's Approx 5.5 mill per

    Amir 6 pts. 5 rebs 1 blk 17.7 mpg (of course playing mostly behind all star bosh)
    Noah 11pts 11 reb 1.5 blk 30mpg

    bigger role more confidence and taking fewer fouls will show the value of this deal. Much of what Amir does to help raps does not even show up in stat line yet. He is their best one on one defender and plays very hard.

    I'd take Noah at 11Mil over Amir at 5 any day. Noah is not just about stats. His hussle, his energy, his rebounding and defense, he plays it all out every night, and his stats surely don't do him justice. Noah is second best center in the league behind Dwight IMO.

    Remember when Noah did his little dance after winning the NCAAs and everybody thought he was a clown?



    I always thought he had an awesome attitude.
    And look at him now.
    One of the top 5 centers in the league fo sho.

    Based upon last season's play by Noah and Johnson and the players on the their respective rosters the Hainline Player Swap Calculator shows that if the Raptors had traded Johnson for Noah at the beginning of last season they would have lost 4 games than they actually did.

    The Bulls on the other hand would have won 4 more games last season.

    The actual numbers are -3.8 for the Raptors and +4.2 for the Bulls. The Calculator takes into account the other players on the team. So Amir would have fit a little better in with the Bulls lineup than he did with the Raptors.

    Amir plays with energy and hussle as well. Noah and his crap for 11M. No way. Second best centre? Hell no. I like the Amir signing, I think Chicago caved when they shouldn't
