If rebuilding is your cup of tea then you have nary a complaint about this trade since it’s a step in that direction. Jerryd Bayless is pretty much Jarrett Jack without the high-profile friend circle, swapping those two does little in the way of improving the point situation, the only impact it has is that Jose Calderon gets awarded the starting job only four months after almost being traded.
ESPN’s Chris Sheridan is reporting that the Raptors are close to trading Jarrett Jack, David Andersen and Marcus Banks for Peja Stojakovic and Jerryd Bayless. What do you guys think? Like or Dislike? Follow @raptorsrepublicFollow @DocNaismith
For the second straight game the Raptors bench supplemented a ‘Beast Mode’ performance by Andrea Bargnani to start their first winning streak of the season. If the Raptors are to beat anyone, it has to be close to a total team effort and that it was, if there’s a stat which reflects that effort it has to be bench scoring – 46-11.
