Todayís the day.
Apparently, Dec. 22 is the day that the contract of Pops Mensah-Bonsu becomes fully guaranteed and I havenít had a whisper of which way the Raptors are leaning, actually.
The monetary savings are huge Ė about $400,000 maybe Ė but the roster spot might come in handy as they move towards the trade deadline.
I guess they could guarantee the deal and eat any financial losses if they have to, or use that money as cap ballast in some future transaction.
Itís not a huge deal but when thereís an absolute dearth of news around these lads, itís at least something worth checking into.
And I shall later on when we gather yet again for practice.
