    I do agree with this sentiment, and if there's a high-IQ guy with reasonable talent that fits a need for us, I'd be interested. Of the PF candidates available in our range, I'm not sure I've seen any...

    He's seeking a max 'current salary cap' contract, which is going to be a bargain compared to the sort of money that's being thrown around next summer.

    The thing I worry about most is...

    1. Casey is not fired. A couple of the coaching staff -- I'm going with Sterner (no!) and Murmys, maybe Bayno -- are replaced with other respected but largely unknown-to-fans assistants.

    2....

    Oh, I'll do it. I'll just hate the bitter realizations that it forces on me.

    Man, I hate thought-experiments like this, because it just makes me realize how big of a difference there is between what I optimistically would like to think would happen, and what I realistically...

    I strongly disagree with Grange here, particularly the "last thing Raptors need on their plate is a search for a new HC." Absolute crap. Maybe Grange thinks that the 2016 offseason, with the biggest...

    Another way of using the d-league is to satisfy Ujiri's basketball-without-borders fetish. Right now most of those developing-world prospects who don't get drafted end up in Europe, where they never...

    But isn't that kinda the coaching equivalent of the tanking problem? Keeping a guy you know is mediocre, in the hopes that a guy you like becomes available and that you can lure him over other teams?...

    I believe that continuity is important. And keeping Casey this year is a step backwards in continuity. Here's why: Two years ago, we ended up running a pick-and-roll offense in which Calderon (and...

    About the d-league team... the best way to use them, in my opinion, is not just to develop players but teach them your system, as San Antonio did rather expertly. So we'd better actually decide what...

    But probably only for a year, because new TV revenue money kicks in next year and the tax and cap are shooting way up. It's going to be hard to outbid any team that has rights to match this summer,...

    Honestly, I think I would be more pissed off with the Raptors retaining Casey than I was with the playoff shellacking. I was so sick of watching this predictable, hail-mary offense and a defense that...

    Yeah, I've got concerns about the obsession with long or athletic guys... I don't think Ujiri places a really high value on basketball IQ, given that it's hard to find high-IQ guys that he's...

    As a second-rounder, KJ McDaniels would have the potential for the same sort of contract that Fields and Asik got, right? Except that it's going to be harder to leverage that since the cap increase...

    True enough... he's said so many contradictory things this season... anything to deflect the question that he's currently being asked.

    He often talked about the fact that he would let the ball-handlers change up the play-call at any time if they had the advantage. That was 100% his choice to not hold the players accountable. And...

    Yeah, watching this Obradovic offense, I kept imagining Demar being the guy who starts low-post, receives a screen, comes up and gets the ball around the foul line from Valanciunas. It's definitely...

    So I was up late last night watching videos of Obradovic running a pick-and-roll lecture/clinic with 17-year-olds. In less than an hour he had them running an offense that was more complicated and...

    I don't think so, contract year guys tend to be guys who put in less than passable effort except in a non-contract year. The problem with Kyle isn't effort... right now it seems to be in his head....

    Seriously, if we could find a taker for Vasquez, that would be the most obvious trade imaginable. I'd even consider chipping in a second-rounder just to get him off the books. Just unspeakably bad...

    Right, I mispoke with the 'connections' part, that applies here but not to Nash/Fields. Should have said 'hire guys on their own merits, not on how you think they might be able to help you acquire...
