    Had to. But, he seems like he's gotten better as a player mentally, and really had to be a leader last year (yes, he still had some stupid moments)

    I wouldn't mind him taking up the salmons minutes- the guy played primarily SF, and played it well, in LA. Something like 2 years 10 million? I'd take him. Playing 20-25 off the bench could inject some offensive creativity when we go through those dry spells. I would want to get another wing to play with him whose specialty skews the other way however, if Fields could stop dating Casey's mom or whatever he did to make Dwayne hate him it would work well.

    I can't stand Nick Young's game. I don't care if he can get hot. He's terrible at pretty much everything except being a volume scorer off the bench.

    That would be all we need him for.

    He's probably going to get a fairly big contract from someone though.

    No way i want Nick Young on this Raptors team. He is a goofy player which doesn't fit at all with hard working character players.

    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    If we're talking about SFs. CJ Miles and Wesley Johnson are two guys who can defend effectively and shoot the 3 at that spot. Both could be had for pretty cheap imo.

    Not really interested in making long-term commitments to above-average, old players like Deng and company. Would rather get a guy like the two above on a cheap 1+1 or 2+1 type deal or something

    That's never all you need a player for. First off, you want as many 2 way guys as possible. Young is not that. And his O is completely one dimensional.

    Miles and Johnson are those secondary free agent type guys. If nothing ideal is worked out early in free agency, see who's available on minimum or slightly higher type deals.

    Neither is ideal. Neither is actually that much bigger than Ross or DeMar (if at all). Neither is a sniper type shooter who you can have out there to consistently knock down shots. Ideally we still need someone who's at least bigger.

    Johnson played a lot of pf this year. I think he's big enough to play backup sf. He looks pretty big on tv but on paper they say he's 6'7 I think he's closer to 6'8 6'9

    Also has a 7'1 wingspan, and the same standing reach as LeBron.

    I'd rather have Marvin Williams than any other SF tbh.

    Yeah he might be top option for me in free agency. Depends on price/length of deal. Definitely don't want longer than 2 years tops.

    Nobody over 25 unless they are a superstar.

    First it was AA.

    Then it was John Salmons.

    Who will Casey use the "But he's a vet" line on next?

    Yeah obviously on a short term contract. He could very well accept a lower paycheck to regain some relevancy. I want him in a 6th man kind of role behind Ross and DD. He is a big body and can shoot the 3 and is a WAY better option to have off the bench than Fields is.

    Please, drop the HE'S A VET thought. Casey stuck with Ross despite being horrible in the BKN series and gave JV constant minutes throughout, except in game 7 where he was just laughably bad.

    Hopefully ross now that he's 3 years into the league. Wishful thinking ya know even though Casey will probably throw buycks before ross because of his overseas experience

    Agree with this sort of, but I assume you mean on an expensive deal?

    Or would you even be opposed to signing say VC for 2yr/6M or something?

    Nope.

    Don't want anyone over 25 - unless we're talking legit star.

    This team isn't winning a championship in the next 2 years.

    Why bring in someone who won't be around in two years?


    AA wasn't expensive and Casey had no minutes playing him large minutes while a rookie getting paid 3x as much sat on the bench.

    I don't trust Casey when it comes to vets. Age is more enticing to him than talent.

    Fair enough. In that case I'd rather just draft guys to fill holes and play them. See who gets good.
