Hmmmmmm.Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine:
Raps G Jerryd Bayless is now unrestricted free agent, agent Jeff Schwartz tells ESPN. Raps have pulled qualifying offer to make Bayless UFA
yeah just read that too
maybe they want to give him a multiyear deal?
would this also mean that theyre intent on keeping Jose?
This makes me sad. Hopefully he comes back next year still.
This kid isn't done yet.

I would much rather have seen them pull Fields' offer and let Bayless play more backup 2 (and backup 1 in case of injury), but I'm glad they decided to let him go rather than amnesty Jose. Good move, imo.
My sources say the Raps have taken back offer sheet...he is now a UFA.
What does this mean to you all.
If he's offered something lower, I'm willing to have him back. $2M seems reasonable for a player of his caliber.
But I'm sure someone will be foolish enough to offer him much more, in which case - BYE!
Would Dallas or Sacramento maybe be interested?

Good riddance. Filled in nicely when Jose was out but too much of an individual player for my liking. PG's need to be able to create for others. Bayless could not.
Hopefully Jose can stay on to split time with Lowry. Jose would put a nice flow to the second unit. Always worked well with Amir and will definitely find Jonas in pick and rolls when they share the floor. Jose's positive attitude and team first mentality are great intangibles for this young team as well.
One down..one more 2 go,Amnesty Calderon or trade him and get quality player..ie Andre Igudala and Tyreke Evans.
So far so good...
As for..oh no we have no backup pg,u can find individual 2 play 15 minutes,free agent market for minimum salary, you know coach gonna play Kyle Lowry 35 minutes and more.
As for what I'm looking for this year.
And yes it can be done,raptors have plenty of talent,draft picks,derozan,ed davis,calderon one year contract,money..
It's time 2 be relavant in the association,compete,is it championship team,probably not,but it would get the fans eager 2 watch nba again,especially me.
Does anyone know how to post their own thread? Please help, thank you!
You're free Little Dawg. Go run with your own kind to a better place. Go! GO!!
I can't stand to look at you anymore (throws rock at backup point guard) I said go, get out here you stupid point guard.
(starts bawling his eyes out).
Its better for him..

Bayless couldn't have blown up Fields/Lowry deals by accepting QO. May signal another deal coming for Raps.
