there are rumblings that BC wanted to Amnesty Calderon but OWNERSHIP were not willing to "write-off" 10 mill + take on additional salary of Ramon Sessions 5MILL/yr for 2/yrs (or CJ watson).
MLSE would not give BC additional money for coach after SMITCH was fired so we got stuck with Jay Triano.
MLSE was not willing to eat JO's 2009-2010 contract worth $23,016,000 so it cost a first round pick to grease him out of town... Depleting the franchise.
hmmmm sound familiar?February 13, 2009: Traded by the Toronto Raptors with Jamario Moon and a 2010 2nd round draft pick & conditional 1st round draft pick to the Miami Heat for Marcus Banks, Shawn Marion and cash.
to avoid paying the final year of Jalen Rose contract (15 Mill) they burned another first round draft pick just to side step paying that cash
MLSE is near sighted. They need to be profitable every year. Fucking idiots don't have any vision and loose out on the real money of playoffs and better attendance. They destroy every team they touch. Their fucking bean counters run all their franchises.February 3, 2006: Toronto Raptors Trade Jalen Rose with 2006 1st round draft pick
