    Default Mo Money! Mo Money! MO MONEY!

    Before I start I'll preface it a little by saying yes, it is early in the season, but...

    Not just going by the great game he's having tonight, but I think it's pretty clear most of us would like to see Sonny "Money" Weems starting the rest of the way. Let's say he keeps playing well and finishes averaging 14-15 points, how long a contract would you offer him? How much would you dole out? Or should we even keep him?

    Considering what BC just signed Amir for, it could put us into some cap trouble in time depending on what he's offered. Should he be on par with Amir's contract?

    As of right now and the way I envision the season playing out, I'd likely offer say a 4 year $24 mil contract. Anywhere between 5-6 mil a season would be fine with me. Anything higher I'd be a little iffy, and annything lower I think he'll walk.

    What would you do if you were BC?

    if he plays decent in april im sure BC will offer him $40 million over 5 years.

    this offer will be made as soon as the season ends, just to make sure no other team out bids us.

    I'd be find with 40 million and 5 years if he consistently plays like this for the rest of the season.

    Maybe he pulls a Kris Humphries and offers him something in December for 3 years and $8-9M? For a guy making $850K a year, a guaranteed $9M might be tempting. It doesn't appear that Sonny is the kind of guy looking to get paid and disappear. Plus he is only 24 so a 3 year deal would take him to his prime years for one big contract.

    I think $9 mil is definitely outta the question, especially with the lockout looming. Who knows what'll happen with the new CBA.

    Default Weems making a case for himself

    Over the last 4 games, where Sonny has started, he has averaged 17.5 points per game, 3.25 assists per game, and has brought energy to this team.

    After tonight's performance I believe that Sonny has earned his starting spot until he begins playing badly and someone else deserves to start.

    Is it because he is in a contract year, or do you think he is now maturing after getting a year of solid playing time which he had never received before?

    As of right now I say let him hit the market and see what other teams are offering. The last thing I want to see is Colangelo bidding against himself again like with Jason Kapono and Amir Johnson.

    3yrs/$9M so $3M a season.

    That sounds more reasonable. I still say let the season play out here before we go throwing around numbers. Anybody can go on a hot streak. Let's see him show long term consistency.

    Very good point. The risk of course is Paul Millsap/Wesley Matthews situation. If Sonny keeps playing the way he is, he should have plenty of suitors.

    Woahh

    just saw his stats for today's game...

    i am inlove

    he is what we need cause its been a while since weve had a player make this much change for the good

    4 games is not enough for me to be talking about contracts. This just shows that he has massive potential. Calm it down everyone, I know, we won, its a big deal, but lets breathe. Any time a player plays well or bad we all go to "TRADE" or "CONTRACT". Watch, then make a decision. I dont understand what people are saying here. 4 games and 17 ppg, what contract would you offer him if he did that to the end of the year? Or is it what contract would you offer him now?

    RAW

    That's true, I guess the one thing we would have is that his best buds are locked up here for a while.

    I'm going to wait 5 games and wait for the thread that says we should buy out his contract and then castrate him because he sucks so bad.

    Looking at BC's past and the contracts he gave to Jose, Amir and Kapano,AB, Kleiza,Hedo and even back at his time in Phonix with Diaw and Barbosa , I see him offering a 5 year 35 -40 million to Weems before he hits the market.

    He's been one of our most consistent players since he started to get some actual PT last season, so that's highly unlikely...

    Weems might be consistent, but the fan's opinions won't be. I've been reading RR for a long time but just started posting and it seems many are wild emotional and reactionary. Weems seems to be one of the players most people on RR like, unlike Bargs and Jose. Speaking of Jose, haven't heard any calls for his head lately. Sure he's been playing pretty good lately, but that usually doesn't stop posters. What up?

    Why the rush boys and girls?

    Dont we have matching rights on his next contract? I believe the Raps are in good position cap wise so other teams are going to be wary about taking a run at him. If he plays consistently I dont have a problem paying him market value. And the only sure way to determine this is let another team out there put their money on the table. Make your decision then since we have no idea what/who we are going to draft either.

    Uhmm, I don't disagree with waiting--3/4 games does NOT a career make... Can he carry the team as DeRozan did in the 4th against ORL/MIA, I don't think so--Raps pay waaay too much for role players! With better players coming our way through the draft and the TPE/ does Sonny ever have a stretch like this again--I'm not convinced BUT for the meantime I'll take the entertainment.
