A bag of chips doesn't cost $16M per season each of the next 2 years.
A bag of chips wouldn't make the Raptors a luxury tax paying team.
A bag of chips wouldn't destroy the already limited financial flexibility of the franchise over the next 2.5 seasons.
A bag of chips allows the Raps to make subsequent roster moves and still have all exceptions availble in the offseason.
I don't stand with the point of limiting ourselves of really good players because of the financial argument. Look at the good teams, how they are build. Or at least the power houses because I wanted to include Boston and the Lakers in my exemple. 3 to 5 guys paid a whole lot of money, then good backups that signs for not much to get in a good team. If we have Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Rudy Gay, Carlos Boozer, surrounded by a bunch of other pretty good players, I don't see why we should worry about the money from here going to 2015?
