    Honestly don't care where a guy is from.

    I find myself struggling to deal with my bias and predjudice, re Italian forwards.

    I personally don't care where a guy is from either, but when comparing Europe and North America, you're definitely looking at two different skill sets.

    i think op was trying to say something like "yet another euro player"
    which i agree with

    but i like datome's play still. basically everything bargs should be (jump+3pt+rebounding+dunks+some dribble control)
    celtics, bucks already went to scout him

    Yea i wasn't really saying it in a negative way. Just stating the irony more than anything

    Beat me to who knows he could be good there are a lot of great euro players, not every euro player is Bargnani Lethargic in ineptitude.... I know nothing about this guy but it says hes captain of his team so he could possibly lead our bench? high IQ and scoring wouldnt be frowned upon here in Raptor land cause I doubt AA will be back.

    BC loves to travel. That's fine, as long as BC scouts players like Datome.He's got nothing special, but luigi/gigi ( yup. ) would be decent bench player, what u all think ?

    +1 could this be the second coming of Jorge? It's funny for once BC has the advantage at going at a free agent lol

    He looks awesome ... I didn't think of overseas veterans as an option for improving this franchise.

    The Garbajosa and AP signings brought us into another level; maybe a vet PG or big like this are possible.

    If i was GM.. and somebody told me "hey, there's an interesting player over in Italy"... i'd be on the first plane for my "work related" vacation..

    too bad there aren't any prospects in Japan, Thailand, Bali, or Cabo San Lucas

    He seems to be scouting Europe in general. That makes more sense. Here's a story about him looking at a hyped up Greek (but really Nigerian) kid...actually think this kid looks pretty intriguing.

    Looks interesting indeed; don't like his shot though. I'm wondering if Saric is still on anyones radar. I haven't seen him play all season and he seems to have dropped out of the top of the mock drafts for some time now.

    Saric reportedly has decided to go in next year's draft.

    Looks like he's back in as he's in the draft express mock.
