Report: Raptors sign Bargnani to five-year contract extension
looks like he'll be a raptor for a very long time.
I like Bargnani but he is too soft to play with Bosh and Hedo. They need some testosterone in their starting lineup...
I hope for their sake they didn't pay him any more than 9 million a year.
I heard it was 5 years for $50 million. I'm not sure why they paid him so much. No one would have offered him anything close to that. I do think he is a good player, but I agree that they need someone who is not so soft. They just tried this same experiment with Jermaine O'Neal where they had 3 soft perimeter shooting big men. Hopefully he becomes a superstar and they can look back and say what a bargain they have. Personally, though I would have tried to negotiate something smaller or just wait until free agency. I doubt he would have gotten an offer like that from another team or even in Europe. They don't have to overpay the European players that love Toronto, they need to overpay the American players to stay there.
you have a link?
Yo This Guy Is Amazing and Progressing Just Like Colangelo Thought.....he Has the Best Footwork/Ball Handeling Skills From Any Center I've Seen In Years .....This Was A Nice Choice My The Raps, and Bargani will be a 20 pts player in the next year or two
