I think a "party pooper" is called a Cleveland steamer.
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
It was the smart thing for Jefferson to do. Instead of collecting 14 mil for one season, he opted out at a much cap friendly salary and in the long run gets more security and money.
Barbosa can opt out and if he does, he probably won't get a new contract from us.
Even your signature of "to some raptor fans michael beasley and al harrington are franchise players cuz they can score 20 pts a game and hit the 3...
they also think you can be a fast-break high tempo team WITHOUT rebounding the ball..." proves it. Just a suggestion - maybe you'd be better off elsewhere.
If he opted out and resigned for 4years and $20M that would actually free up $2.6M to spend money elsewhere.
Yes, it would take money away from the cap in 2012-2015, however, $5M a year for a player of his ability is a good deal in my opinion.
If Bayless plays well though, I could see Barbosa traded or not resigned if he opted out as they seem to have a similar skill set but Bayless is obviously 5 years younger.
He opts out - $7.6M saved.
Re-signed for $5M per season.
Savings of $2.6M in 2011-2012.
Future years he is on the books for about $5M per season.
Good deal for rotational player who is well above average NBA player.
Good deal when average salary in NBA is $5.84M.
I can't make it anymore clear. Hopefully that made sense.
Barbosa would be making more money if he decides to opt out and sign a multi-year contract. If he will make a total of $7.6M if he takes on his player option, why wouldn't he want to make maybe $20-25M playing more years?
