    Darn right! Gray is a slightly above average NBA center, which is great for a backup that doesn't demand big minutes and comes cheap.
    Gray is nowhere near being a slightly above average NBA center. I don't mind him as the 5th big but frankly, I hope he plays 650 minutes or less this upcoming season.

      8 to 10 minutes is likely bang on

      15 - 20 minutes should an injury or foul trouble knock on our door

      starters minutes if the usual Raptors are decimated by injuries thing occurs just as we are approaching a playoff spot

        I really enjoyed Aaron Gray's play this past season especially based on the fact he made the minimum. I'm going to withhold judgment on the resigning until the figures are released. If he signed for the minimum or anything less then a 2 year 5 million (2.5 a season) max 3 million per I'm happy. Anything more then that and I think they overpaid. There are a number of servicable bigs on the market so heres hoping we got gray at a reasonable rate.

          Something else must be brewing right now, it's been too quiet these past couple of days. It's like Colangelo is saying, "talk about this for now, while we work on a big deal that'll knock your socks off" . Well, at least i hope thats whats happenIng.

            Barring any major trades this looks like the team we might be entering training camp with..

            And I think we can all agree that we've slightly improved the 1,2,3,5 spot.

              I hate how these big men get NBA contracts on the premise that they can foul a superstar 3 times a year for 5 minutes a game. We should hire Kimbo Slice to guard Dwight Howard then. It will be cheaper and it will draw more of a crowd.

                We were ready to offer 36million/3year for Nash. Where did all that capspace go? Did I miss a big name signing ?
                Mcgee is a project but unlike Drummond he already can play on both sides of the court. Mcgee would expect 7million/year contract and I would give it to him. If Casey can keep him on a leash he is a 23 year old superstar (in the making). Imagine the flexibility two real bigs will give us with lowry, bayless, demar, ross and fields in the roster. Big men like him are a rare commodity in the NBA and that is why they get big contracts.

                  Where did you get that McGee expects 7 million a year? I doubt there is any chance he takes less than 10 million a year. Presumably Denver is just waiting for someone to give him an offer to set his marketvalue.

                    We're not obligated to spend all the cap space for the sake of just having it. Plus, we're saving it for a potentional big trades, most likely.

                      Exactly! In case you didnt notice .. we just offered god damn Landry Fields almost $7 mm per year. McGee is definitely thinking 10+ mm .. and a) we dont have it, but b) even if we did, I wouldnt spend it on him ..
                      Gray should be $2 mm per year max.

                        McGee is interesting and could potentially be a very good center but I wouldn't touch him. The kid is an idiot and the guys in the current locker room seem like high character players and at least try to be professionals. JV has great character, work rate and has just as much potential as McGee although he will do it in a different style. I think they have a good thing at the 5 not need for McGee I'd rather them invest at the wing (SF where we need the help most).

                            I thought we were going to play either ross or Derozan at SF?

                              6.3 to fields, 6 for Lowry. Nobody has been amnestied or no bird rights relinquished. I think that pretty much covers it.
