First and foremost:
We want to congratulate Fred!
Keep up the great work!
If you can spare a few bucks, I would like a house out in the country, LOL
On serious note though, you deserve every bit of that.
You have worked hard to get where you are today.
Fred VanVleet signed a 4 year / $85,000,000 contract with the Toronto Raptors, including $85,000,000 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $21,250,000.
In 2020-1, VanVleet will earn a base salary of $18,973,214, while carrying a cap hit of $18,973,214 and a dead cap value of $18,973,214.
The Toronto Raptors and combo guard Fred VanVleet reached an agreement Saturday on a new contract.
Brian Jungreis, VanVleet’s agent, told Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium the deal will be worth $85 million over four years with a player option for the final season.
VanVleet steadily developed from a little-used reserve into an impact starter over the past four years with the Raptors. It was a growth process that included a key role off the bench during the team’s run to the 2018-19 NBA championship.
The 26-year-old Wichita State product is coming off his best statistical season. He averaged 17.6 points, 6.6 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game while shooting 39.0 percent from three-point range, though his offensive efficiency has room for improvement after he shot 41.3 percent from the field.
VanVleet said during an appearance on Sportsnet’s Tim and Sid in October he was hopeful of remaining with Toronto but wanted to keep his options open.
“I’ve been here. This is the team that gave me my chance, I think we understand that. I’m not gonna speak too much on free agency this year just cuz it’s a business and I have to do what’s best for me and my family,” he said. “But, I mean, I’ve been on record about how I feel about this place. This organization knows how I feel about this place. So in a perfect world, we know what would happen.”
His notable impact at both ends last season—he ranked 10th among all shooting guards in ESPN’s real plus-minus with positive offensive and defensive rating—put him in line to negotiate a new contract at a perfect time in his career arc.
