    If we wanted a lot of league attention a la Tim Leiweke's mandate... we sure got it.

    Fun with advanced stats time!

    He gave 0.3 MORE of a win than DeRozan in 1700 less minutes!

    He also gets to the foul line at a ridiculous rate (10.5attempts per 48 minutes).

    Yeah, work ethic means a lot.

    Tank or not, culture does matter. You don't want jokers who come in and don't take things seriously.

    My first thought was that Hansbrough will walk into the ACC, and be led to a dark room where Jonas will beat him with a sack of doorknobs.

    Good value at the bi-an(if).

    What does this say about the restructuring?

    As both a UNC and Raptors fan - I love this move of course. I can certainly empathize with those that dislike him - if you root for team he plays against his on-court demeanor and aggression can be pretty annoying. I will say this - in regular minutes he will produce. He's probably the greatest player over the course of his career in the history of the ACC, and was a Sporting News First Team All-American all four years of college. He started 8 games in place of West for the Pacers last year - and in those 8 games averaged 14.8 Ppg and 10.1 Rebs on 49% FG and 75% FT. He's not going to be a superstar obviously - but he can play and should be productive for the Raptors and offer some grit and toughness - and yes annoy the hell out of the opposition.

    I like the signing. It also frees us up to move Amir should we go full tank at any point before or during the season. Starting Acy would be a bit of a joke but I think you could get away with starting Hansborough. Rehardless he is a guy I like the Raptors going after.

    LOL, he will be a fan favorite after game one of the season...

    He may even give Amir a run at starting PF.

    But he's a hack ....

    I would have liked Brendan Wright better, but this move only re-assures Ujiri's commitment to hard working, hard-nosed culture. He's a dirty player but I'd rather him be with us than against us. Jonas has a body guard now.
