    Default Sonny Weems?

    Anybody know what's up with this guy? A few questions for the crowd:

    - Do Raps still own his rights? If so, what are the conditions & how valuable is he as a trade asset?
    - Has the Euro experience improved him as a player & matured him as a person a la Anthony Parker?
    - Would you want him back on the team & if so, where would he rank on the current wing depth chart?

    i would also like to add to your line of queries...

    1. Has Roko finally met his full potential........ as a taxi driver?
    2. Where is Solomon Alabi flipping burgers these days?
    3. I've had sneaking suspicions, but can anybody confirm if it IS Patrick O'Bryant in the peeler bathroom getting mad at me for not tipping him for giving me hand soap?
    4. What's up with Uros Slokar?

    Clearly, to fit into Casey's ingenius offensive system, which we will from now on simply call the "chucker" offense.

    I believe Toronto was going to let Weems sign with another team last offseason (Cleveland was rumored to be interested), but Weems apparently never found an NBA offer he was satisfied with, so he went back to Europe.

    I don't think he'll ever wear a Raptors jersey again and I could frankly care less. I don't want to rehash the 'Young Gunz' crap from the past any more than I want to rehash the "EuRaptors" experiment. Leave the past in the past.

    Looks familiar?

    Dude's being trashed by fans up here. Great personality, not player though.

    Classic Heinz. lol. Hopefully POB wasn't applying that soap to you as well.

    What about: (5) "Will Solomon... What in the World are you doing?" Can't seem to find that video anywhere.

    But seriously, I read somewhere that Weems had improved a lot over there, but it could have been one of those fluff pieces put out by his agent.

    hey now.... no such illicit behaviour happens in peeler bathrooms

    just some good old wholesome disposing of condoms in urinals, some honest hiding of underwears you accidentally "messed" during a dance, and some good old fashioned washing of female fluids off your hands... and for the last one, i salute the hard work and dedication of the kindly bathroom attendant...

    still aint giving him a fucking dollar though

    Sonny Weems is basically a lesser defending Alan Anderson. The guy tries too much on the offensive end.

    I don't think that's possible....at worst, he's a younger Alan Anderson

    He's a poor man's poor man!!!


    All kidding aside I wouldn't be surprised to see him have an Alan Anderson role on an NBA team in a few years, don't think he'll ever amount to anything other than a 3rd stringer on 1 to 2 year deals

    Solo was released from the Idaho Stampede March 1st. But as he made $1.6M in his two years with the Raptors and seems to have very humble tastes, I doubt he will ever be in financial difficulties.

    I wish him well.

    Last I heard Weems was playing for CSKA. I doubt any NBA team will be interested in matching his contract in Europe. The Raps do have his rights-- haven't heard of any rumors of NBA teams offering 2nd round picks, or late firsts for him. I think he'll stay in Europe until he retires.

    Sonny Weems is currently averaging 14 pts on 51% from 2 and 43% from 3 in 28 minutes. He is shooting 87% from the free throw line. They have him as forward so his 3 rebounds looks a little low, but I'm not sure how they use him (might be a floor spacer, and then leaks out on offense) In other words he is scoring very efficiently has found his 3pt range and is automatic from the charity stripe.
