    He's a very good shot blocker, exactly what we need. He should make this team as the backup 5

    Stiemsma, Cherry and Hamilton all have at least partially unguaranteed deals, so if it comes down to it, they can probably waive two of them and stay under the tax. But all these adds make me feel like there is a deal centered around two of our expirings (Fields, Hansbrough?) coming. Never know with Masai though - might just want some competition in training camp.

    I would feel much better with him backing up JV this year than I would with Bebe.

    Isn't Psycho's contract guaranteed? That just means Cherry and Hamilton will be cut.

    YES! More meat up front! I'm always more confident with the team's success when they have a solid-sized big coming off the bench. No offense to Chuck Hayes or Hansborough -- they bring the ruckus -- but you can't teach size. If either of those guys were 6"11 they would be amazing. Greg "hot and steamy" Stiemsma gives us a big body to throw out there to fight with someone like Mr. Kardashian who, realistically, should not be averaging the 20reb he does against our Raptors Squad. All this plus a measly $1million price tag? fuckin chump change. Awesome signing.


    EDIT: LOL I was just trying to be dramatic about the Kris Humphries comment., but turns out in 2011-2012 in three games against the raps he had 16, 8, and 21 rebounds against us. A little dated of a comment, but it stands.

    17 guys on the roster...what does Masai have cooking!? Stiemsma is a descent pick-up i guess...6 fouls, and a big body to block the paint and change shots....this years version of Aaron Gray

    Hamilton & Cherry would appear to be the natural cuts, but that would leave only 2 true PGs on the roster. The improved depth is good for alleviating the pressure on Bruno & Bebe, allowing them to spend the bulk of the upcoming season in the D-league.

    In that case Hayes, Hansbrough & Fields would be the team's 11-13th players, giving the Raptors a deep, versatile, experienced roster.

    I don't think anyone can predict who the likely cuts are. The 3 newly signed guys are all favorites I think.

    Just because we signed Stiemsma and we need a bigger backup C, does not mean he makes the team. The only spot we still really have an obvious opening is 3rd PG, so I think Cherry's the safest bet to make the team. I think that spot is his to lose. Hamilton or Stiemsma would have to play incredibly well in camp to either cut Cherry, or make more difficult roster maneuvers to bring Cherry and one of them on board.

    Also I wonder what tax implications are. If the Raps are hoping to avoid the tax, assuming they still technically can, I hope they do just that. If guaranteeing Greg Stiemsma pushes us over the tax threshold, that's pretty stupid.

    Finally, and the most important thing about this signing in my mind, this must mean the end of any Andray Blatche talk.

    Are the Raptors aware that there is a limit to the number of players on your roster?

    Probably not. Maybe shoot Masai a text and let him know.
