    T-minus 84 minutes, amigo. I'm okay with them not extending Murray as long as they don't extend DeRozan.

    Yup - in a perfect world Dejounte gets extended in the range you mentioned and DeRozan stays as-is. But if they don’t extend anyone I am totally fine maintaining what they have now, which is flexibility, then seeing what this team needs come the trade deadline/offseason.

    Proceed with caution SA. You have a good young core especially considering no lottery picks and potentially a ton of flexibility with LMA small guarantee, DeRozan option and no extensions committed to.

    Great deal provided Instagram continues his trajectory and stays healthy. Though it's all a moot point if they decide to extend Derozan.

    Yeah. I stand corrected. I really thought Murray would hold out and get a lot more next summer. Maybe he could have, but that's not how he wanted to play it. Let's hope he dramatically out plays this deal.

    I mean, if there were real thoughts he could be 100M guy based off potential, he doesnít even have to improve to the degree we hope for this type of deal to be solid.

    Also, maybe hindsight, but Dejounte always struck me as a “Danny Green” type. What I mean is that when people asked Danny about taking a discount, he would respond with “I don’t think I did, I think I got a lot of money and I love the organization”.

    Dejounte struck me as similar. He came from nothing, he has a great head on his shoulders and knows that haggling over some millions when you are gettin paid this much borders on bullsh*t even if it’s justified.

    He’s claimed the Spurs literally saved his life and with all those pieces being put together, I am not surprised he signed for this money as its both fair and truly life changing for him personally.

    Maybe in hindsight that's how fans will view it. In real time, Spurs fans saw it as "brashness" and that he was brainwashed by Rich Paul and Klutch and needed to be traded ASAP, etc.

    I also thought heíd hold out for more but it was a good call for him and his team to take this deal now. His track record was short due to the injury and the rook season spent on the Gleague. Itís very clear that both the Spurs and him wanted yo get this done and Dejounte must have factored in the full guarantee and be aware of how much of your life can change with an ill timed injury. Props to Klutch for not steering him towards a wait and see approach be it would be a gamble that other players have taken before and not panned out sometimes.

    Spurs fans saw Dejounte talking about the organization like that? I saw many that took umbrage with him posting in IG, but never his comments on the ORG/Pop.

    Why would an extremely raw player coming off a season long injury demand max contract money?

    You do realize ACL injuries aren’t what they used to be, right?

    There are dozens of other injuries that would be worse in a player like Murray. Achilles, back, shoulders, foot (lisfranc), etc. are all much worse. He might not be 100% right now, but almost certainly wil be soon.

    Very little risk here.
