    If JL3 gets signed for anything close to 3 million I will be choked considering that Bayless signed for around 3 million. I would much rather have Bayless than JL3.
    Which is exactly what I'm comparing too.

    You guys act like this 2-3 mil was going to go to getting that max player that's always available next year. They're not coming here, get over it, John Lucas got maybe an extra mil out of us than what he deserves.

    Oh no, we dun fucked up, with that mil and our 9 TPE's we could've gotten Rudy Gay and signed Dwight Howard next year
    Not sure you know how a TPE works so I'll just leave it at, "No."

    Here's a cringe inducing memory...who remembers one of our recent 3rd PGs....Marcus Banks. His last 3 yrs. were at an avg. of 4.5 mill. per. I know he was foisted on us in a trade but still....

    Do you read the comments regarding items related to the CBA around here?

    If you knew the difference, way to go on your zinger!

    Via HoopsHype.com:

    Mark Deeks: John Lucas's deal with the Raptors sees him get $1.5 million for two years, the second of which is a team option. Twitter
    Deeks is the ShamSports.com guy.

    Knowing the contract, I would call this a good pick up now. Still not convinced Lucas is a legit backup but no issue with him playing 3rd string or in case of injury.

    Was waiting for troll to disapear before I commented.

    at 1.5mil, JLIII is a steal from the bulls! This is the man you want off the bench or during injuries, with strong individual showings you can see how from no role, he can come in and drop 25 when hot.

    Okay. At 1.5 million, it's not that bad. I was kinda worried that BC would give him like a $2 - 2.5 million dollar contract...

    $1.5M per year, team option on year 2.

    I really know eff all about this guy. But you can't get too upset over a 3rd string PG on a minimum deal. I seriously doubt he will make or break us in the playoffs

    I think this is a very solid signing. We can see what he brings to the table this year, and if he can be a backup. If Jose is dealt/does not sign back, we will have a good idea of what JLIII brings to the table as a player, and make an informed decision on whether or not he should stay with the team. I like it.

    Thks. The few games I saw him in last yr. it always seemed he was making a 3 when it was needed when Rose was out. Good flexible contract.

    1.5$ million is half of what I was expecting, I too would agree on a good pick up.

    So, according to Doug, Lucas is in Toronto today doing his physical and then a media announcement tomorrow.

    Quote Doug Smith wrote:
    Not sure how much of this is out there this week – don’t really care since it’s old news anyway – but James Johnson is a Sacramento King and John Lucas III will be a Raptor, likely this afternoon.

    The Johnson-for-a-second-round-pick deal has officially gone through and that leaves enough money lying around for Toronto to sign Lucas as a third point guard.

    He’s supposed to get his physical today, sign his contract after and he could very well be “introduced” to the media tomorrow.

    I'm happy that we got John Lucas III, although I'm a raptors fan first, I watched alot of bulls games last year, the guy can light it up, he'll be superb 3rd point guard or a very good backup if calderon is traded. This is my first post this year, and I must say I'm very pleased with all the moves Calangelo has made so far, including Landry Fields.....assuming the team stays relatively healthy, this should be a playoff team, at least a 7-8 seed, BOOK IT!!

    I was seeing a lot of tweets from Bulls fans, and seeing a lot of mad statuses on facebook about letting JL3 go.

    He was a fan favourite in Chicago, the guy is a hard-worker, and a good motor, I see him fitting into Casey's system, being he's played under coach Thibodeau.
