    Default Raptors interested in Brandan Wright

    The Mavericks would like to bring Brandan Wright back to Dallas, but there are several teams interested in the high-flying, high-efficiency backup big manís services.

    According to a source, the Mavs, Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, Detroit Pistons, Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks all expressed interest in Wright during the opening hours of free agency.

    He'd be a good 1st big off the bench. Not the greatest defender but it wouldn't really matter if all he's playing is 10 mins or so a night

    The nice thing about Wright is he can play both big spots...I don't know much about his D. I know he's got length and can block shots.

    Below average man defender, decent help defender. Playing alongside Val or Amir would somewhat mask his defensive flaws.

    He is again a player who struggles against real centers; pretty thin guy. Don't know if he's that good of a fit for us.

    Casey's already coached this guy no? They went over what "type" of player they want no?

    Probably. So, considering they are supposedly running a tigh ship, the rumour won't be true.

    Where does Wright fit, as of right now? The Raps are already deep on the wings and added a stretch-4 in Novak, so I'm failing to see a spot for Wright... unless there are subsequent moves coming in the wake of the Bargnani trade.

    What do you mean where does he fit? 3rd big playing 20 mins off the bench at PF and C...

    I'd prefer him over gray personally. I think he'd be solid in a backup role.

    Anyone is better than Gray, Id take a wheelchair bound crossed eyed dwarf over Gray at Center.

    I'd keep Gray around as a big body, but Brandan would be a great third big behind Amir and Jonas! That would be a really great big man rotation, with Novak, Fields and Gray in the mix for special cases.

    Though I'm still hoping Camby plays, if he can stay health, he will definitely help JV and AJ on and off the court. Plus, with the weird "Marcus Bamby" treatment he got when he was traded away for Oakley, I think Toronto fans owe the dude some respect, retiring a Raptor would give the opportunity to do that. He wants to be on a contender? Well, as far as the East goes, that's basically Miami, so given that Miami is unlikely, the team just has to convince him that with him, Lowry, Gay and Amir and co, Toronto has as much chance as anyone to at least win a playoff round or two.

    If Camby plays, then probably no room for Wright.

    Camby is being traded, most likely to as contender. If we can grab him, use cAmby and keliza as chips towards a young pg were set.
