    Yup.

    Jeremy's 8.4m/year is decent deal.

    Lowry's contract was a steal compared to all these recent signings...we should've demanded more from Toronto :mad:

    What did Gogi get?

    I'd actually love to have Lowry locked-in here at that rate but now we have Harden so...

    And yeah, Lin's contract looks better next to Lawson's but Lawson is a much, much better player.

    Holiday is getting 46m/4 actually. It says so on realgm which is grossly overpaying for him....
    I like Lawson but I don't see he is a much much better player than Lin. Can't really tell at this point since Lin hasn't played enough games.

    Anyway we will see after a few weeks/months how they match up. Lin is still getting used to this team. Lawson has played for the Nuggets for three seasons already and is older and more experienced than Lin.

    Curry got 44/4
    Holiday 46/4
    Lawson 48/4
    Demar 42/4

    How is Lin overpaid again? Small sample size for sure but surely Holiday isn't worth that much more than him. A guy who regressed in his third year instead of improving(most players have a huge leap in their third year). Good defender but a horrendous offensive player. Something you might want in your C not the person who should be running the offense....

    People are very high on Lawson but he has yet to show good, consistent decision-making skills at the point.

    However, he's in the conversation as one of the league's quickest players, so the hope the Nuggets have is that Lawson will mature, get a better feel for the game, and become that franchise piece they've needed. As of right now, he's not worth his contract. His contract articulates his potential, not his performance.

    I want to see him do something except play for a contract, like he did last season.

    is he? I'd take a healthy Curry over Jrue in a blink.
    The reason why those extensions are even comparable is that Curry has health issues, so it's a risk for the team. But if he ever gets sustainably healthy, it's a bargain.

    This and the Derozan signing show that there are still a lot of teams that overpay.

    I mean, these guys are getting more than Lin and Asik!

    I think Jrue will live up to his extension -- far more than DeRozan, Gibson -- I even think Lawson is good but a bit overrated

    Rondo's contract looks amazing

    Lowry and Dragics contract are probably the best bang for the buck
