    @KevinRashidi: Talks about getting Nate Robinson or Rodrigue Beaubois are back on as Raptors will NOT be signing Julyan Stone due to a failed physical.#RTZ

    So far there is no confirmation from any other news media sources about this move.

    yeah but Kevin got the quote from the original guy, and there is no other source beyond the original guy.

    Damn. Really intrigued with this Stone guy. A 6'7 PG doesn't come around very often.

    I don't want anything to do with Beaubois. Seems to have totally fizzled out.

    Nate's fine. Any guy who is available at the minimum.

    Default I'll vote for unproven at this point (no pun intended)

    Quote Matt52 wrote: View Post
    That is a good point.

    Don't the Raptors have that in Stone?

    What happens if Lowry goes down? Would you rather unproven starting PG or experience?

    **BTW, not being snarky. Sincere questions which I could debate either way**
    It's a good question. My 2 cents is that the Raptors best play are small bets with high risk as opposed to medium sized bets with low risk.

    It is early days, but its fair to state that Ujiri is very different from any GM Toronto has had to date. We will see how things shake out in the years to come but I can't recall at time when:

    1) A trade Toronto entered into with any other team was touted as a fleecing - by us
    2) A GM is listed amongst NBA players as one of the better free agent signings - again by us

    Hard to be bullish about our team "as is" today - but also hard not to be bullish on the new man we have behind our chips...

    According to a source familiar with the situation, Robinson and his camp have already made it clear with the Bulls that the two sides will part ways, as Robinson seeks a multi-year contract. Even if that contract isn’t made available to the point guard, a one-year deal with a team that will give him extended playing time is next on his wish list.
    Robinson knows that his value might never be higher coming off a season like he had, and silencing critics that he wasn’t the most coachable player in the league. You put a year in under coach Tom Thibodeau, and stay mostly dog-house free, that’s an accomplishment.
    From Chicago Sun Times: http://www.suntimes.com/sports/21022...ls-source.html

    I think Nate would be nice at backup PG, but we may have pay over the minimum for it. He made just over $1.1 million last year and will definitely be looking for a raise. He's worth it though. A guy that can come off the bench and provide instant offense. We all know Ross isn't at that stage yet.

    They don't and so why do you supposed he is getting little interest? (Raptors physical aside)

    Because he's not that good.

    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.
    Yeah and he would offer a nice change of pace, pushing the ball catching teams a little off guard.

    The reason Buycks signed with the raps was because they offered him the backup job, I assume they knew Stone wasn't coming in. Can't imagine the raps signing a guy like Robinson to play third string.

    I think if anything it'll be one of the guys from the summer league team

    Nate Robinson love him to death but Im not sure he would mesh well in this team of youngsters. Also he would be great and awful off the bench he would score right away and be a spark but at the detriment of Ross who is still learning and needs a guard to set him up and Fields who cant do anything at all.

    With Buycks signing that contract for 3 years it sounds like hes the back up. Still hoping for Kabongo or Seth to be a Raptor D-League stash though....

    In order to pay Nate more than the minimum we would need to get rid of Kleiza (amnesty) in order to get under the tax threshold. That would allow us to offer Nate the remainder of the full-MLE (about 2.2M) which might be enough to secure him. I'd really love to get him to give our 2nd unit some scoring punch.

    Nate also doesnt strike me as a Casey player besides his mental toughness. Hes a mix of Bayless and Lucas 2 players that never meshed with Casey exactly.

    Just as we thought the point guard signings were over, Stone fails his physical. We essentially gave Buycks Stone's contract. All we have left is our Bi Annual exception; $2,016,000. I really don't think Robinson would come to Toronto for that amount so we can pretty much squash that.

    I don't know....Dallas is really frustrating me with their pursuit of so many guards. I mean, will they just trade Calathes already? Maybe they're asking for a lot because they're high on him.

    Buycks getting some ESPN attention:

    Surprises

    Dwight Buycks, Thunder

    Inevitably, every summer league sees one player who rises from obscurity to prominence. In Orlando, that player was Buycks. Bursting onto the scene with a 12-point, 13-assist performance in Game 1, Buycks was tremendous for Oklahoma City on both ends of the ball, running the pick-and-roll to perfection and hounding opposing ball handlers. He averaged 9.5 points, six assists and two steals per game while shooting 48 percent from the floor (albeit on an average of just six attempts), and his production did not go unnoticed: Buycks recently signed a deal with the Toronto Raptors.
