    Default For all the RR based scouts and potential GMs

    Ujiri insists any more additions will be young players with 100 percent certainty.

    "Maybe a wing," Ujiri said. "We have been looking for another wing. We will see how it goes. It might be something we do this summer or wait until training camp and invite a couple of young guys and give them a shot and see what happens. We are still working on trying to figure out a couple more parts for the roster."
    This is an excerpt from:

    http://probballreport.com/whats-next-for-the-raptors/


    For those who have watched summer league games or otherwise know of good young wings on the bubble with their teams for whatever reason.....who you would like to see MU add to the team. Clearly MU is on the prowl for "young", "100%" talent (wing players) in the mold of a Buycks.....low cost and with potential to add to the depth and could stick.


    Any names?

    Terrence Ross

    In all seriousness, I heard Chris Wright might be that guy.

    yeah as an end of bench guy Chris Wright brings a lot of energy and effort, good practice guy who could develop into something more. His effort in building a passable jump shot in a little under a year shows real promise

    There is a nice player Deshaun Thomas who played on the Spurs sl team and reportedly on the bubble. He was a late 2nd rounder SF. These guys though know when they have a good one and find ways to keep them!

    Another wing? So with Gay, DeRozan, Ross, Fields, Q-Rich, and Acy (as the Power 3) on the roster.. you would think the last thing we need is another wing. I guess one (or two) of these guys won't be there on opening day.

    I wouldn't be suprised to see a young wing and a young C signed, purely for depth (and asset accumulation). I think Richardson will be traded or bought-out and Acy is likely the 3rd PF (especially if Amir/Hansborough see any time at C).

    C: Valanciunas, Gray, Rookie
    PF: Johnson, Hansborough, Acy
    SF: Gay, Fields, Novak
    SG: DeRozan, Ross, Rookie
    PG: Lowry, Augustin, Buycks

    Looking at where players can actually play:
    - Valanciunas: C
    - Gray: C
    - Johnson: C, PF
    - Hansborough: C, PF
    - Acy: PF, SF
    - Novak: PF, SF
    - Gay: PF, SF
    - Fields: PF, SF, SG
    - DeRozan: SF, SG
    - Ross: SG
    - Lowry: PG
    - Augustin: PG
    - Buycks: PG

    I'd probably leave Acy & QRich off the wing;list....which leaves 2 each for the 2 positions...and then taking into account possible injury or movement I can see where there is a need especially if it is of a developmental kind.

    What could Landry fetch in a trade market for a similar poor contract for a C

    I wrote in the predictions thread that Ujiri would pick up an undrafted C from the last couple drafts. Someone who offers an alternative skillset to Gray, maybe someone with a jumpshot?

    Anyway, another wing seems to be a bit of overkill.

    Ok, so you disagree with Masai U. (in the quote).

    What you do in the privacy of your own bedroom is cool with me, you just don't need to shout it at the roof tops.
