    thought Mccaw was dumb but not to bad of a move financially I guess. he will make a little over 1 mil this year (between raps and what Cleveland payed him. he turned down 5 mil for 2 years in GSW. so if he can't get a contract more than 4 mil a year next off season he come out ahead and gets to pick what team he plays for.

    Good article in The Athletic on McCaw. Mentions he had multiple offers but chose raptors because of their player development. Mentions Phil Handy.

    McCaw's gonna look like a fucking G — having won rings the last two years with GSW — when he wins another this year with us.

    There it is. Raps are ahead of the curve in that department in the NBA. From Fred to Siakam, 2 guys whom 2 years ago nobody gave much thoughts in the draft have advanced so much (in very little time) thanks in part to a robust player development program. NBA Players are taking notice.

    That may be something they look at the next time they go to the bargaining table.

    I don’t see a violation here the kid still has to clear waivers before Cleveland can sign him. The nba just doesn’t use its waivers system which is no fault of Cleveland

    It will be interesting to see what happens with him, developmentally and career wise. Always is with the young Raptors #scubs #discards #undrafted prospects.

    As has already been mentioned, interesting that Patrick chose to go to the Raptors. Advice from an agent?

    Yeah, but the whole point of the contract was for it to be undesirable. Why would anyone claim McCaw on an overpaid deal?

    It is definitely legal, but it's the sort of legal loophole that they will make sure to close ASAP because it's not intentionally legal, just overlooked.

    I believe there was a report saying that it was because of Phil Handy's reputation as a player development coach.

    Same reason "The Moose" signed with the Raps. In a smaller role specializes to your skills on a winning team, you can look much better than being on a losing team with a bigger role that wants you to be the jack of all trades thus exposing your weaknesses.

    If you know your role & specializes in a few areas you will continue to find your next contract around the corner.

    Thanks Dan. Never heard of Phil before he joined the Raptors but he has a good reputation. Certainly is making a great impression here.

    Timing can be everything. If you're a role player you might get lucky and contribute to a deep playoff run with all eyes watching just before free agency and you sucker some NBA GM into over-valuing you, like: Delly, Mozgov or our very own Biz. Visibility in the right setting (i.e. playoffs) can really distort perception.

    Hard to believe Biz went from, what was it, $3 million a year to $15 million? For three years? Good for him.

    yup closer to 17.5 ... i remember fans clamouring for daddy biz to stay..... I am glad we didn't pay that ugly contract. As much as I liked biz he was good at three things... lateral wing defence, rim protection, and rebounding. The best of which was rebounding. He couldn't pass, couldn't shoot, dribble.. He could just dunk. He was like a poor man's tristan.


    For more money.
