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

by

cavsraps

Let’s look at the changes to our roster so far: Additions: Roko Ukic, Jermaine O’Neal, Nathan Jawai Subtractions: TJ Ford, Rasho Nesterovic, Maceo Baston, Carlos Delfino Bryan Colangelo is working towards having a “nice, lean roster” for next year which sounds like a good enough idea. What he doesn’t mention is having an athletic roster   …Continue Reading


Draft endorses TJ Ford trade but Colangelo too quiet

by

cavsraps

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. After a night of wheeling and dealing in New York where the Raptors were hardly involved in anything, there is a new light   …Continue Reading


Raptors assume greater risk as TJ Ford, 17th pick and Rasho traded for Jermaine O’Neal + RaptorsNation.org

by

It actually appears to have happened. TJ Ford along with our prized 17th pick and the expiring contract of Rasho Nesterovic for Jermaine O’Neal. Rasho’s obviously thrown in for salary reasons and is easily the third best piece that the Raptors are giving up in the trade. Whether the best piece is TJ Ford or   …Continue Reading


T minus 1: No sign of what the Raptors might do

Let’s start off the day with Chad Ford’s mock draft which insists on us taking Robin Lopez at #17. I don’t see it happening unless Brandon Rush, CDR or even Donte Greene are already taken. There’s no doubt that drafting a hustle-type big man is the easier thing to do, there’s far less expectations from   …Continue Reading


Indiana deal dead, Knick interest in TJ Ford + Exodus to Europe?

by

cavsraps

We all know TJ Ford is going to get traded but that doesn’t mean you have to print a picture like this of him in the Toronto Star. It’s like they went through every image of Ford they could find and picked the worse one possible. BTW, I love newspapers – always a day late   …Continue Reading


TJ Ford + #17 + Rasho for Jermaine O’Neal

by

cavsraps

Update: Deal goes down! The Indianapolis Star is reporting. This is also confirmed (copied?) by Doug Smith. Obviously we’re taking a big gamble if this goes down but I’m all for the proactive nature of this deal, once again giving up the #17 pick hurts but I wouldn’t be terribly upset at this move. O’Neal’s   …Continue Reading


Sunday shakedown

cavsraps

The free agent camp continued yesterday but so far no reporter has covered the proceedings. Check Smith’s or Grange’s blog, maybe they got something. Eric Smith tells us of some of the things he saw. There’s also this scrum interview with Marerresse Speights. I know I’m reaching to get the Raptor fill for this post.   …Continue Reading


The Saturday Morning Post: Qualifying offers, trade rumours and some Bill Walton

by

garrett-hinchey

Good Saturday Morning! The Raptors extended qualifying offers to Jose Calderon (no agent, fired him) and Carlos Delfino which means they have an intent to resign them and want to have a shot at matching any offers made to either player. This makes perfect sense for Jose Calderon but it’s a little surprising to see   …Continue Reading


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

by

garrett-hinchey

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   …Continue Reading
