    His D is also pretty bad. I mean, he can shoot, and he's a decent PG. But yeah, he's an acceptable option mostly because better fits are not there.
    They're looking for a back up right and they've already got a defensive PG who can't score.

    Of those remaining on FA and who Raps might actually have a shot at getting, I like Udrih best.

    (In my opinion) teams that want to grow don't sign those old dudes but look for the likes of Beverly. Regardless of how crappy the market seems to be, there are more like him out there; players with upside instead if on the dying end of their career.

    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?

    Not me. I think I prefer AJ Price. He had a solid year. Decent enough long range shot (admittedly shit overall FG%). Decent defensive player. Can get out and push the pace. Solid assist to turnover ratio. Just think he fits with what the Raptors are trying to do.

    *Oh, and AJ Price did a fairly good job stepping up while Wall was injured last year. I considered that fact given Lowry could have another injury prone season.

    sign me up for Udrih, he's a really criminally underrated pg. is he a starter? no, but he's a great backup. could get him on a mad cheap, short contract too. almost makes too much sense.

    I'm with WMCJ on this one. AJ Price is a perfect backup for K Low

    Myck has exactly 2 points and 4 assists, 3 turnovers so far in three games in Orlando so his stock could not be lower when it counts the most. He should go back to school at a Canadian university and get a degree.
    I feel awful for him... maybe Europe is an option?

    Turns out Milwaukee got Ridnour for nothing but rights to some guy I've never heard of. We could of had him for the 2017 2nd rounder

    Uh...no. Because we have no cap space. That's how Milwaukee is absorbing his contract for nothing.

    Most of these proven players don't deliver anything close anymore to what they have proven, their proven record isn't worth much.

    Most of them can't handle a fulltime job anymore and/or get injured quickly. They are no good guarantees for an injury.

    We are not contending or close to it. Having players who still can improve and/or have their peak in front of them instead of (way) behind them gives the chance to either develop someone for some time and get a nice addition for the longer term and an asset instead of having a decaying player who isn't an asset and won't be here for long.

    Don't give Casey these veterans because we know how that goes.

    People want leadership? Don't get it from a one year player. Get it from within, hire one of these guys as an assistant or whatever.

    Um...But is that in general, or just for Summer League?

    *nevermind, he's not on the SL roster and I don't think he can be.

    Doing research on him now!

    Looks like actual backup.

    I looked up some highlights of the guy, and he can ball. Haven't really seen how much of a playmaker he is though

    Looking at his stats, he definitely seems like a score-first PG

    Haven't seen OKC games, but the reviews on him praise him, gonna make sure i watch that championship game today, was gonna skip it cause i find unfair how those 2 teams have players who started NBA playoffs games playing against guys fighting for a job. Houston is fun to watch but greg smith and reggie jackson or just way above their competition.

    Buycks:

    24 yearsold 6'-3''

    2010-2011 In Marquette as a Senior:
    46% FG - 41% 3PT - 3 RPG - 3.3 APG - 8.83 PPG - 1 SPG - 28 MPG

    D-League 2011-2012
    50% FG - 35% 3PT - 2.71 RPG - 2.64 APG - 15.14 PPG - 1.25 SPG - 26.8MPG

    4 Summer league Games with MIA 2013-2014
    46%FG - 67% 3PT - 2.5 RPG - 6.00 APG - 9.5 PPG - 2 SPG - 21 MPG

    Conclusion:
    high FG%! Can shoot the 3! VERY efficient scorer, especially in D-League where in about 27 Minutes, he scored 15 points on 50% FG! Doesnt usually play Point guard, but in Summer league he did and he averaged 6 APG in 21 MPG. He is a tall point guard, he can gather steals, he is young, he is efficient.
    The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!

    its only summer league, but he's a big reason why the thunder team was doing so well. when he was playing he was in COMPLETE control of the offense. you know who he reminds me of? that beverley cat out of houston. i remember watching him thinking this guy is gonna get signed by someone. he didn't seem to have much of a jump shot but he's crazy quick and has excellent court vision.
