    Yes. It's laughable to me that anyone is trying to defend this. The money, the timing, paying for potential instead of performance. There's just no defence for this player getting this contract.

    As I wrote earlier, good for Derozan. Dude hit the jackpot.

    You have to look at the first 3 years for Joe and compare then with the first 3 years with DeMar.... The 4th year for Johnson would be the current year for DeMar.. I don't have faith that he would have as a good a year, but Bryan may have and thus offered the contract extension now.
    I know what your saying, but Johnson didn't get his contract after his 3rd year. Johnson only got his contract after his 2004/5 campaign.

    But even if we assume BC is afraid Demar would have a very good year (and there is very little historical evidence with Demar to indicate this will be the case) and would have to pay more, atleast he'd know he is getting a productive player whose cost would be capped under the CBA.

    I thought Colangelo is big on advanced stats now. This signing clearly says otherwise. Even REGULAR stats show how poor a player DeRozan is :|

    It's hard to be a BC supporter this morning... the loss was tough, but I can stomach it and take many positives from it, but hearing about the DeRozan contract nearly made me physically ill. I defended BC all offseason, pointed to DeRozan being a good, young, cheap asset and raved about the financial flexibility the team had (even after the Fields signing), then BC goes and does this. Absolutely pathetic contract that he hasn't come close to earning.

    BC's 4 most overpaid contracts (avg $ shown):
    - DeRozan ($9.5M x 4 yrs)
    - Amir ($6.5M x 2 yrs)
    - Fields ($6.25M x 3 yrs)
    - Kleiza ($4.6M x 2 yrs)

    Last night 3 of those guys were 'under the bus' (DeRozan, Fields and Amir) and the fourth (Kleiza) had a DNP - Coach's Decision... what an efficient and effective way to spend $26.85M! That's nearly half the team's total cap space and not one of them is a legitimate starter!

    This team seriously needs a legit starting wing that can score efficiently and consistently, while also contributing in other ways too (ie: defense, rebounding, passing). Our wings, led by DeRozan, are so far below average that it's not even funny.

    I am in agreement.. this is a horrible signing. The timing is
