    I'm just happy we didn't get Nate Robinson...
    I told the first, and sole source of the Robinson to Toronto rumours that he was an effin' idiot and he banned me from his tweets.

    I feel validated. Now I need to hear the lamentation of his woman and I'm good.

    Ugh....weak player. Oh well. Not a great PG market...but still....not at all thrilled with this signing.

    Hope he has a bounce back year, leaves, And never comes back.

    Lewenberg is saying that Augustin is actually the 3rd option w/ offense, and Buyck is still backup pg.

    Point guard D.J. Augustin has reached agreement on a one-year, $1.2 million deal with the Toronto Raptors, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

    Augustin will back up starter Kyle Lowry next season.
    This is from Woj.

    "The Pacers were second-to-last in bench scoring last season."

    So w/ Augustin & Hansbrough... guess what?

    I think we're tanking. Lowry's probably going to get traded and DJ will lead PG with Buycks as backup. Book it.

    I think you should leave all that tanking stuff to the tanking thread.

    is stone actually legitimately out of the equation?

    This pretty much removes Julyan Stone from the equation.
    Buycks will play the 3rd.

    It is a great opinion and it is not because I share it.

    Yeah I think this move is spot on by Masai just because if things go south, be it by injuries or Lowry not playing up to par/not wanting to return, we'll be in a solid situation by trading him and getting on with the tank. Still would like to see Buyckes back up, or at least be given enough time to perhaps develop into a serviceable roll-type guy

    I'm sorry, I'm trying to figure out why people who ostensibly want the Raptors to compete this year think this is a "great signing." Nate Robinson would have been a great signing at this price, for example, but DJ Augustin is Not A Very Good Player and really only has one purpose: he has enough experience and demonstrated ability not too long enough ago that he can let the Raptors at least pretend that they're trying to compete, but little more than that.

    Which from MY perspective - teardown and rebuild - makes him a fantastic signing! Because he sucks.

    One year contract, if he suddenly becomes a threat he becomes trade bait, but we're not paying a lot in the interim. Works for me.

    Meh signing. I feel that Dwight Buycks will beat him out. Can't guard no one and not a great shooter.

    Two 6 foot point guards? Sounds like a defensive nightmare. Buycks may not look like the backup at the moment, but he'll be getting his minutes.

    Let the 2 eat each other alive.

    Julyan & Buyck together would have been the same situation.

    Let the victor be the number 2, and their efforts & competition against each other will light such a large flame beneath Lowry's ass he'll either fail in misery or step up.

    Buycks will beat him out for 2nd guard not a thrilling signing but whatever the team has taken shape.
