    Just based on games against Orlando, Vuc has the least impactful 20/10 games ever. I'm always surprised at his stats at the end of games. Drummond seems more of a disruptor and he is very offensively challenged.
    Drummond 'seems' that way but Detroit gives up 5th most points and 7th most rebounds at C spot.

    Not sure how these numbers fair since Smith left.

      Lowry making the ASG effects Toronto's salary cap depending on his contract.
      Huh? That's true for DD, who has an incentive to make the team. Lowry's contract was reported as having no incentives. So, no.

        Won't know until end of season but he likely has All-NBA or ASG incentives but since he never made either it is just labeled unlikely and not calculated. Though the straight 4/48 with ETO or PO was just the base structure, no front or back loading.

          • Wow, no incentives for Lowry? Didn't know that. Find it surprising.

              Often the details of incentives only come out after the fact, but the existence of incentives in a contract is usually reported ahead of time. Lowry's was reported as a straight 12M - no ifs ands or buts.

                You might be right but incentives or details are never published unless they effect the cap. Sometimes players contracts are oddly structured due to State or Country. League alter salary caps at the end of seasons and could effect future cap space.

                      Sham pretty much always has a "contract includes incentives listed as likely/unlikely" statement, even if he doesn't report the details. We've known Amir Johnson has an incentive (that he's never achieved) since he signed his deal.

                        Unless a team is in the tax there are no requirements to publish unlikely incentives. James Harden has an incentive that pays 100k if he designs a submarine deemed unlikely.

                          True, Noel out played him. He had a nice poster though!

                            Hey, better go and do your best, worship Demar, I don't really understand what's the point of coming in to this thread every time when you have something negative to say.

                            • I put a post from Vantage Sports on the Raptors' hedging strategies in the Stats thread, there is some Val info there for those who missed it.

                              However, despite having such a high Hedge% as a team, Valanciunas has so far hedged on just 1.43 percent of the screens he's defended this season. To put how low Valanciunas's number is in context, the second-lowest Hedge% on the Raptors is Tyler Hansbrough's 18 percent.

                              • So the jist of this is:

                                Casey's defense is not designed to fit with our cornerstone player

                                That's like run and gun Kings with Cousins level stupid
