    If there is a lock-out, it will be mega-ganja-stripper fest for the players. They might still go to Europe even if they don't play - to Amsterdam that is.
    I don't want to be the "party pooper" but I think that would violate the contract terms

    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.

    Not sure where you got that number, but I've read it's lower than that. And Barbosa has a player option that, if he has a good year, he will probably not exercise.

    As for the cap, we have no idea how much under the cap they will be since we don't know what the cap will be next season, or if there will be a next season.
    it's actually over $50 million counting the 2 1st round picks..

    you think there's a chance in hell barbosa isnt going to exercise his $7.5 million player option ?

    that's not counting barbosa... and again you think someone is going to be offering this guy over 7.5 mill ? he'd be insane not to exercise the P/O

    Wanted to point out you are yet again wrong. The Raps are looking at a payroll of $45.1M next year.

    These are the players under contract for next year: Calderon, Bargnani, Amir, Linas, DD, Davis, Bayless, and Alabi.

    Restricted free agents: Weems, Dorsey, Wright

    Player option of $7.6 for Barbosa which, if he opts OUT, would bring the payroll down to $37.5M.

    Of course this is all based on current CBA. Next year nobody knows what the cap will be.

    This is a classic example of your typical comments that have no fact.

    Let me get this out of the way for you: I know I'm a douchebag and I love BC's man-bits.
    check out hoopshype and tell me why they have the salary at $50 million... and for next year add weems, and 2 1st round picks and it's closer to 60 mil.

    what's up matt ?? and my basketball iq is lower than 70 ??

    You think Barbosa is going to get more than 7.6 million from anyone in the NBA !!

    We are committed about 45 million next year without Weems and Julian Wright !! Assuming that we give Weems a 5 million and pick up the Qualifying offer on Wright for 4 million, then we sit on 54 million next year. Add to that the 2 first rounders that we have for next year and that will push us close to 60 unless BC trade our first round draft picks

    hey someone with some addition skills !! can you please explain how numbers add up to matt52 ?

    EVeryone was surprised when Richard Jefferson opted out of his contract. He is making quite a bit less this season, but he's more secure over the long term. It wasn't even about changing teams, as he obviously stayed. Barbosa will turn 29 next season and he knows as well as anyone that you can't bank on being healthy all the time. If he has a decent season, I think he'll strike while the iron is hot. It simply make good, long term sense.
    yea, everyone was surprised cuz it happens so rarely that an overpaid player opts out...

    and either way, if he opts out and signs a longer term deal with the same team (like RJ), that would increase our salaries even more...

    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.

    Once again, way to bring something to the board. You don't bring anything of any quality or substance to the board. You're just here to stir the pot.

    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.

    In 2011-12 he is owed $7.6M.

    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.

    Salary for 2011-2012 is $7.6M.
    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.

    yea but you said 41.6 million... you didnt add the hypothetical of barbosa opting out, and resigning.. and you didnt add the 2 1st round picks, plus sonny weems...

    adding all that and its closer to 60 million... a 150% increase from your original projection.

    can i be any more clear ?

    we're not talking about how much barbosa is worth... we're talking about the raps salary for next season.

    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?
