Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - SPREAD ON A LITTLE MAYO
Ray had three offers as far as the public knows:
Boston was offering 3 years, 27 mil with a no trade clause.
Miami was offering 3 years, 9 mil.
Memphis was offering the full MLE.
Memphis was already out of the race due to Ray getting pissed because he almost got traded there during the previous season, so it came down to Miami and Boston. Ray was obviously not coming back to Boston due to his numerous off the court issues there, so ding, ding, ding...we have a winner!
Miami was pretty much Ray's only option of the teams that made him offers, so of course he signs there, and to make it better he gets to play with the team he hates the most's biggest competition.'
As far as JET goes, Dallas wouldn't even offer him the MLE IIRC. If I'm not mistaken, they were trying to lowball him and offer him cheap contracts because they were obsessed with bringing in Deron or Dwight or both. So JET decided to join another team...
