Basketball Fans! Russell and Dan welcome cap guru Daniel Hackett back to the show this week to discuss the Raptors signings of Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka (2:55). Then, Hackett takes everyone to CBA school, illustrating what position the signings put the Raptors in financially (13:50), discussing what they can do to alleviate their potential luxury tax burden and why they’d want to (20:05). The guys then talk players the Raptors could/should target with the Mid-Level Exception (44:10), and finally, they take a look around the league and discuss their favourite and least favourite deals of free agency so far (56:17).
It’s a free agency bonanza! Included within are digs at Jason Kapono, Dan still refusing to forgive Vince Carter, a debate on whether or not Patrick Patterson comes back now that PJ Tucker is gone, and three separate stories about falling down the stairs. Enjoy.
