Isn't there a rookie scale that has to be adhered to? Dunno.

I really don't see this as a big deal. Redick has been making $2M per year for his first 2 seasons. As a first round draft pick $1.5M has basically become the standard.

You gotta be kidding. This egregious contract will prove to be the final nail in Otis Smith's coffin. The pick has "Reese Gaines" written all over it. While Lee struggles the guy we could have got, Chris Douglas-Roberts, will flourish, and once again we'll be left with what coulda been.

Christ.
You guys are ready to crucify the kid, and I bet 99 percent of you haven't seen him play more than 5 games in his college career.
Give him a chance before you get all uppity about Otis being an idiot and this kid being a scrub.
BTW,$1.5 million a year is not THAT much money for a first-round pick. Chill out.

Actually, Lee is a better ball-handler and a better defender that CDR.

they played him a few games obviously he isn't what they thought he was so there goes that arguement. besides Lee had helped wku get somewhere in the ncaa tourny. besides its a 4 year deal now do the math and figure it out JJ got paid more and still hasnt made much of dent into the rotation.
