    Since the Raptors Summer League roster is already posted, does this mean that it's too late to have Buycks join our Summer League team? I'd like to see Buycks, Ross, Valanciunas, and Acy on the floor together and it would be nice to have him form some chemistry with our players

    I think I read that Buycks is already on Miami's Vegas summer league team, which is too bad.

    Is the comment about being an efficient scorer based on what he did in the summer league only or icluding what he did in Europe? Just curious because I could only find his stats from summer league where he did score efficiently and kept his turn overs down, but it's still just summer league. Also, I saw somewhere that he averaged 2.5 assists a game. That's not too good, for a PG, but I guess as long as he's coming off the bench it doesn't hurt the team too much. If Lowry gets injured for any duration of time though things could get ugly.
    In Europe as well. He shot 46% FG last year in France, 38.4% 3PT, scoring over 18 points a game. He also averaged 5 FT per game.

    I wonder if getting signed means he's not going to play now.? He didn't play today for the Thunder. Maybe teams go "Meh, he's signed somewhere else. What's the point of us playing him?"

    Plus I heard he's going to Toronto this weekend for physicals and such. And Vegas league is starting today.

    I guess that could well be the case. I wondered about that too.

    He reminds me of Brandon Jennings -- based on the videos I've seen on youtube -- with the way he moves around the court & how he gathers his shot. What I like about this signing is the fact that this dude is already 24 with significant experience in college, D-League & overseas. He should be able to contribute now since he is already somewhat seasoned -- with room to grow. He has the ball skills to create his own shot & get to his spot, he has the size being 6'3".

    We now have different options at the point guard spot ...

    Starting calibre guard / Good rebounder -- Lowry
    Score first / Get to the rim / Good size -- Buycks
    Defensive oriented / Great size -- Stone

    We are getting younger by the day!

    @BrettNBA: Source: Raptors interested in signing free agent Nate Robinson, would use him as backup point guard behind Kyle Lowry.

    Who would have imagined the Raptors coming out on top of the Dwight free agent sweepstakes?

    Why do you say that? I mean, what makes you think there might be a connection to a possible signing of Nate...?

    I had brought up Nate in the free agency thread. I think he is a good pick up in the short term if itbgoes through.

    Well right now offense coming off the bench is not in abudance and Nate is all offense. The little dude is explosive.

    Lowry is actually much more important now after recent moves.

    Nate's better than JL3. He's stronger, a better defender (when he's into it) and better at attacking the basket. Just a better scorer, all around. Maybe not as streaky a shooter. JL3 can get stupidly hot, but he's completely useless if his jumper isn't falling.

    It's funny, in the starting 5 thread, I just posted my preferred rotation...and I noted there's a legit opportunity for the backup PG to bring scoring if he can. I'm figuring for the end/start of quarters there will be at least a bit of a window for a guy to bring some of that with most starters on the bench.

    We are talking to Nate because Stone failed his physical and we took away the contract. So we have an open PG slot.
