Roy gets max extension

RedsArmyAdmin August 6, 2009 Uncategorized 3 Comments

I'll say up front, I'm a big fan of Brandon Roy.  He's a special player… he's clutch… and now, he's insanely rich.

The Blazers have reached a 5-year maximum deal with Roy.  That means he'll now make $14 million, 2 and a half times what he made last year, and he'll get 10.5% raises each year after this one. 

I wonder if I ask Chuck nicely, if I can also get a 250% raise.  I'm sure it will mean he has to give up those special massages he gets at that unmarked place in Watertown Square… but I'm willing to negotiate.

    Great Deal for a great player and one of my favorite UW Huskies.

    I always hear this term, “max deal,” and have never known exactly what it was.
    “2 and a half times what he made last year, and he’ll get 10.5% raises each year after this one.”
    So, it that essentially the formula for any max deal?

    the 10.5% raise part is.
    Here’s a table that explains what the maximum is for players. It’s different depending on years of service:
