This is good.

I like this.

Now, how about that post announcing that the Ericsson signing was a ruse?

He should have used Ericsson’s agent.
1.2 is about right…win/win.

Now THAT is a good deal. I’m glad Kenny resigned Patty.

Much better deal than Errorisson.  Glad to see Patty O’Eaves back in the fold.  We need the right handed shooters!

Hometown discount, I like it.
Wonder if he was guaranteed a certain amount of playing time to stay versus hit the market and cash in elsewhere….

Ericsson is so not worth 2.7 Patrick Eaveses.

Great deal, Eaves brings a lot to the table, especially for that price.

Good deal. He could’ve gotten maybe $1.5 elsewhere. Team player. Unlike Ericsson.
