SQUEEZE the ORANGE with a Conversation between GM...Player AGENT...and PLAYER...RAPTORS GM Colangelo gets a Huge Signing in D2 of COMPTON...PHILLY moving in the Right Direction extends Point Guard JRUE Holiday...#RAPTORS #SIXERS

A Player you know about and a Player who People in the Know know about like the Bluedude signed Long-Term Extensions Today as they are Two Players that are very Pivotal to their Team's Success moving forward.

Point Guard/Combo Guard Jrue Holiday (pictured Left) of the Seventy-Sixers signed a 4-Year $41 Million Deal to stay with the Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers. Last Season as the Sixers were the 8th Seed they knocked off the #1 Seed in the East the Chicago Bulls and Jrue Holiday was a Vital Piece in that Sixers Runs in 2012 Winning Time.

A Consummate Professional Holiday is as he was a 2008 Big Mac (McDonald's All-American Team Member) starred at UCLA before being drafted by the Sixers. In 2011-12 Holliday averaged 13.5 ppg, 4.5 helpers, and 3.3 boards. Now he will be with the Sixers at least 5 more Season counting this Season and Jrue will join Spencer Hawes, Thaddeus Young, and Evan Turner among others being the Core of the Sixers Future.

The Toronto Raptors make a Huge Step in finally getting Players to want to stay and play North of the Border by signing Multi-Talented Big Guard/Small Forward DeMar DeRozan (pictured #10) to a reported 4-Years $42 Million. Some may question the Deal but I don't as D2 would have been a Hot Commodity on the Open Market and the Raptors would have been forced to match.


Last Season D2 averaged 16.7 ppg, 3 boards, and 2 helpers for the Raptors as he is a Key Cog in Raptors Lead Man Dwane Casey and GM Bryan Colangelo moving forward.  Don't sleep on the Raptors as they are quietly putting together a Nice Roster and the Core Young Guys are willing to play up there and maybe Air Canda Centre aka Jurassic Park might be back rocking like the Vinsanity/T-Mac Days in the Late 90s early 2K's. Pieces like 2012 1st Round Picks Quincy Acy and Terrance Ross to go along with 2012 FA Pick Up PG Kyle Lowry...Raptor Me.

DeRozan spent One Year under Tim Floyd playing for his Hometown the Men of Troy...USC Trojans. Best Friends with the Beer Town USA Lefty Brandon Jennings as they grew up together in Compton California Area of L.A.. DeRozan, Jennings, and Holiday were a part of that Talented HS Class of 2008 as they were all consensus Top 10 Guards in HS along with Current SACtown Kings Sniper TY-REKEhavoc Evans.
