The Saturday Morning Post: What’s next for the Raptors?

What he doesn’t mention is having an athletic roster… Read more »

Draft endorses TJ Ford trade but Colangelo too quiet

First off, thanks to everybody who participated in the live draft blog, those who stayed through the whole 5 hours and the ones who swung by for 20 minutes. It was fun.

More workouts, Houston likes Rush and Arsenalist’s Friday Mailbag

More workouts yesterday as Roy Hibbert and Donte Greene showed of their game. Nicolas Batum called in sick even though he had taken a physical on Wednesday, the Raptors hope to reschedule something with him before next Thursday but its going to be tough. Eric Smith did a blog about the workouts although he’s not… Read more »
