    This is his last contract (if he gets an extension). Nothing more than 4mil. I know it's low but I think the franchise needs to be wise about spending (I know, it's not my money).

    I like Barbosa not opting out. I really didn't like the idea of Colangelo having lots of money to throw around this offseason (whenever it may be). I was afraid he'd get desperate and overpay a mediocre player just to make sur he signed someone. I think Colangelo is a good GM, but I don't trust him with a lot of cap space. Especially when it's in the team's best interest to hold onto that space for a better time. I think next summer will be a better time for the Raptors to try and sign someone.

    It is not the worst thing that could have happened.

    To get another top 5 pick next year, it was probably the best.

    I'd rather pay Barbosa $7.6M this year than pay Diop $6.9M this year and $7.3M next year - right, MJ?

    Barbosa could very well be an important trade asset at the deadline or he could expire for cap space next summer.

    Either way, it is nice to have another lose end tied up.

    I haven't even looked at who's available, but that's not why I'd wait. I'd wait because the team is simply not at a stage where they would be able to attract a free agent without massively overpaying them or should go out and grab a big free agent. By next summer, more holes will be plugged and a free agent will be able to be one of the final pieces to help the Raptors be competitive.

    Plllllleeeeeease opt out.

    Personally, I think they are trying to milk an extension from Toronto.
    I totally agree - anyhow here he is - if this season is going to be the tank job (and the rumblings would suggest as much) best thing he could do is be part of some deadline deal.
