    I don't normally start new thread. But figure this has to be done.

    Thank you BJ for the colossal fxxx-up job you've done which ended up as a HUGE favor to the Rox.

    Thank you!

    But the seams!


    1. Fails all year long to get any offer or SnT.
    2. Lets QO expire, and many Cap Experts think that was best deal, in hindsight to new
    3. Turns down $8m in Summer, and $7m + Incentives to $8m just recently from Rockets
    4. Signs $37m/4yr from Nets with March 1st waive date
    5. Morey schools him by matching an pointing out deal is only $31m for Rockets
    6. BJ embarrassingly asked his client to Hold Out, and
      with "I'll get you those bonuses. I will SHOW YOU THE MONEY"
    7. Final deal
      1. $31m base + $4m Bonuses = $35m
      2. DMo loses his March 1st Waive date for July 7th
      3. DMo even loses his Trade Veto Power that came with a match, since this is a new Deal directly with Rox

    He told us it would take "12 - 16 million" in guaranteed 1st year money to move the first trigger date back to July.

    Morey got it for roughly 8-9 million

    I stand by my original claim. BJ is one of the worst agents around.

    DMo's chances of getting $16M guaranteed in year 1 were higher than the chances you hear that from him

    What if he comes in here and tells you "12-16m" range is for two years total? BBH is NEVER wrong!
