Jeff Weltman Rumors

“Any time you have a rookie contract the guys, just by definition, are at a stage in their career where they’re probably yet to realize their potential so you’ve got to find that middle ground between where you think the player will go and where he is now,” Weltman said. “That’s why a lot of extensions don’t get done. But, yeah, we like to feel we’ve found some middle ground with Terrence where we’re paying him in the hope that he becomes a great player and we think he has that in him.”

The Raptors view this contract as completely in line with where contracts in the NBA are headed. “The cap we all know is going north and salaries are going to escalate along with that,” Weltman said. “I don’t think it’s any secret, I don’t think we’re ahead of the curve to say that it’s going to be a new financial landscape for the league coming around the corner and this is probably reflective of that jump.”
