    Hmm, well, I think it's high, too, but I also have to point out that Foster's extension is worth $6.1 mil this coming season. Varejao, who is more productive now, was scheduled to make $6.2 mil for his option, but now is going to make about $6.5 mil (unless the contract is structured differently).

    On a juicer note, shouldn't the Cavs expect him to back up Shaq at center as well as be their PF? Even better, put a shooting, rebounding big man next to Shaq so Varejao doesn't wear himself out. Darn, if only they could trade Big Z and his whopping $11.5 mil expiring for a PF who can shoot the three ... .

    I guess there is no recession in the NBA. That's a lot of change for an energy player. Goodness, what is McBob going to cost us?

    I can dig it.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Yuck. We'll be talking about this one as a bad contract for years to come.

    About a million per year. 1.5 tops.

    That much for 9 points and 7 rebounds? LOL! He made out like a bandit.

    The $50mm include incentives and the last year is a team option. The guaranteed money amount is about $42.5mm.

    I think this is a good deal for both parts. Varej„o is a solid player, who will defend, rebound, play mistaken free and make some shots. He will probably start for the Cavs during the entire duration of this contract and Cleveland simply couldn't afford to lose him for nothing this season.

    I feel like that is too much money for Varejao. What other current free agents could they have pulled in for that much money (or less.) I know Wallace and McDyess are off the market. What other PF's are out there?

    If we're voting on this, put me down as a yes.

    I agree with this. Too much money for Andy, way too much. I wonder if they were bidding against anyone else or what made them feel they had to reach so far?

    They're going to regret this contract. Ridiculous.

    That's too much money and too many years, even with incentives and a team option taken into account.

    I like Varejao as much as the next non-Cavs fan, but this guy really isn't that special of a player. He's worth more to Cleveland than anyone else, so you can see where they justify paying him that. His energy and personality make him an important part of the team, especially in the fans' eyes.

    But, for other teams who don't already have a connection to him and whose fans don't already love him, he's not talented enough to get a contract like that. Cleveland didn't want to lose him, so they grossly overpaid, IMO.

    Good for Anderson, though.

    The Cavs are in, "do anything and everything to keep Lebron" mode. For their sake I hope it works - though I woudn't shed a tier if he moved west. However, 9 million a year? Really? Are we talking about the same guy?

    Jerome James. Jared Jeffries. Eddy Curry.

    Don't insult the man. He was the best at being the worst.
