    Marshall was picked up off waivers by the Milwaukee Bucks. The only way he comes to Toronto would be via trade, which cannot happen until 30 days after the beginning of next season.

    Any moves will have to wait until Norgueira's staus has been resolved, probably this week. It seems at least three other top European teams are after him. A good sign for the Raptors, but not for...

    I still get the feeling that Mr. Ujiri is going to make one more move. But who can read the Sphinx?

    Marshall ranked second in the league among qualified point guards in assists per game, ahead of those pikers, John Wall, Ricky Rubio, and Ty Lawson. He did turn it over at a rate of 3.45 per 36...

    Snap him up right away. There are not more than half a dozen guys in the league who can pass as well. He can clearly shoot the ball, too. It is not his fault that the entire Lakers team was...

    Okay, I overdid it a little. It was just frustrating watching the team pull up like a bunch of horses with the bits too tight.

    I read a rumour on RealGM of a three-way trade to send Mike Dunleavy Jr. to Toronto, John Lucas III to the Bulls, and Tyler Hansbrough to Utah. I have no idea if this would work for Toronto, but...

    This is one big circus. I can't believe Mark Cuban is watching the game courtside. (I can't believe I am sort of watching, either.)

    You are leaving out Indiana. It remains to be seen just how good they can be, but at least for three months last season, the Pacers were exceptional on defence and very good on offence.

    Two points: 1) It will likely take a year for the Cavaliers to mesh enough to compete for the conference finals. 2) The Cavaliers have a newcomer to the NBA as a head coach. I would be very...

    The Raptors need a backup centre. Whiteside or Norgueira might be it. I can't see the GM extending a contract to a vet until he has had a chance to evaluate both. There is very little money left...

    I will agree with that. Blatche ranks 58th among centres in TS%, 71st in TR%, 45th in DRtg. In other words, mediocre to poor. But he ranks 12th in points per 36. He is a far better player than...

    Great to see "the gang" back. They deserve a chance to see if they can match or even improve on the post-Rudy Gay record of last year.

    I'm just trying to bring some objectivity to the discussion. Every player has strengths and weaknesses that have to be factored in to balance the team.

    Mitch McGary is having a great start: 18 points and 13 rebounds in his first game. Guess what? He was picked at #21. I fear Toronto's front office blew this one.
