3 years 100 M per Woj
WTF where did that come from?
Great deal for him instead of a supermax that I was dreading.
Awesome. Now hopefully he can extend his assists to four per game.
I don't see how he wouldve qualified for the supermax.
Puts him on the same timeline as Dame again. All this talk about trading CJ.....it's never gonna happen unless Dame is also being moved.
Incredible news! Take CJ's name off the 2021 Free Agent list. I don't think people understand how valuable it is to have two franchise players locked in and committed to the team. We've had Dame since 2012 and CJ since 2013 and neither has given us any inclination that they want to leave or even test the market. The fact that our backcourt will be well into their 30's before testing the open market is incredible from a fan perspective.
I really like how the roster is shaping up not only for this season but over the next five seasons as well!
Fine, not supermax, but the 30% cap max which woulda taken him to 40 mil in the last yr of the deal.
This feels good. Knowing our guys are gonna be here for such a long time feels really good
Beautiful. Let the good times roll!
Not a bad contract at all.
Wow that came out of nowhere.
I do really hope he improves his floor game. I had hopes of Ant becoming cheap CJ but now it looks like he’s gonna he traded at some point.
Dame and CJ sitting in the tree.....counting all their mooooney.....
Naw he needs to keep shooting to efficient not to
I'm happy with the contract. CJ and Dame as a backcourt isn't what is stopping Portland from potentially winning a title (or at least competing for one). The shitty SF and PF's they've had the last 4 years were a much bigger issue for the team.
this CJ contract is very tradeable.
5yrs 157 for CJ
some recently signed deals
Middleton: 5yrs, 180
Tobias Harris: 5yrs, 180 mil
Jamal Murray: 5 yrs, 170
Porzingis: 5yrs, 160
DAngelo Russell: 4ys, 120
Personally i don't like it because it might affect his trading value if he has any good trading value. Difficult for a team to commit paying CJ at 32-33 years old so much money.
I don't see any reason to rush this extension.
So glad this happened. Cj is damn good. But one thing this doesn’t really mean he won’t be traded if anything it gives us the ability to trade him now much easier. So I like that we control the flexibility of the roster easier
It is. I just don’t think Neil will do it. He’s not gonna split those two. Those two will never want to split. They’ve basically choreographed their entire careers around each other. Their contracts are almost like tandem deals.
The biggest reason I've been on the trade CJ bandwagon is because I was 100% certain he would bolt at his first unrestricted free agency. During occasions Dame has been out, he's proven that he could easily be the top guard on a solid team and would easily be an All-Star in the East. He would be making a name for himself and not have to sign with a Chinese shoe brand.
He's proven me wrong. For his loyalty to Portland, he's earned my loyalty.
