    I scoffed when it was rumored he would get a 4yr/$40mil deal. Even with the cap going up to $127mil in two years that would be a big payday. This is madness.

    This is going to go down as a terrible contract. In a few years they will be dying to get rid of it. I just don't understand the stupidity of it, even with an increasing cap, that is a lot of money for a role player.

    Good lord. I think he's a good player, but that is way too much even with the cap jump.

    Toronto makes some of the dumbest decisions with SFs I've ever seen... First the Landry Fields contract, then getting Rudy Gay, now $15 mil for DEMARRE CARROLL??? Good for him though, nobody thought he would be anything when he was with the Rockets.

    60 mil for a guy that scores 12 points a game and gets 5 rebounds.

    And of course the Spurs manage to get Green to basically leave 20-30 mil on the table...
