    Default ESPN Insider: Vasquez one and done in toronto?

    It's safe to say that Greivis Vasquez hasn't made the positive imprint on Toronto that many -- including myself -- expected when he came over from Sacramento in the Rudy Gay trade.

    And already, 12 games into his Raptors' tenure, it's very questionable whether the pass-first point guard will remain with the team beyond this season.

    And already, 12 games into his Raptors' tenure, it's very questionable whether the pass-first point guard will remain with the team beyond this season.

    "A concern going forward for the Raptors could be the play of backup point guard Greivis Vasquez," Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun wrote recently after the Raptors game against the Heat. "The dropoff from Kyle Lowry to Vasquez has been massive and when Lowry had to rest, Miami was able to bounce back and take control of the game. Vasquez needs to be better and not just defensively, where he traditionally struggles."

    Vasquez is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, and unless he starts to perform a lot better with the Raptors, it's difficult to envision Toronto matching if he signs an offer sheet with another team after the season.

    There's a chinese website that let's you read insider articles. Can't remember the name and even if I did... I feel like you can get banned for such things lol.

    I have insider, that's just a heads up for anyone who doesn't.

    Vasquez has been atrocious. He looks slower than Jose and has absolutely no shot. Not sure what's up with him but he was supposedly much better in New Orleans. Hope he turns it around because we'll need proper backup PG play come playoff time.

    If we're planning to become a 2nd round playoffs team we need a better backup PG than him.

    He's just not playing well right now. He's not an untalented guy. He has shortcomings (lousy defense, occasionally taking a bad shot) but I think I'd rather see the Raptors keep him and trade him next year given how cheap his contract is. He has shown in the past that he can run an offense and make plays.
    You can find me on Twitter.

    He doesn't make a lot and hasn't been given a chance yet.

    The one thing he is known as is a play maker and he can't even do that! It boggles my mind that Vasquez averaged 14 and 9 in New Orleans

    Love these idiots talking so much crap when Lowry's best season is not close to Vasquez's best season. Lowry is a marginal starting pg. Vasquez is prolly about the same but he's bigger, cheaper and at least he passes the ball.

    I have insider, that's just a heads up for anyone who doesn't.
    my wife is chinese and we have a google like site called baidu here where you can download any album/song and she asked why i don't and i said it's stealing. her reply was "no it isn't there is a download button right there" haha

    if i can find the way to insider because for all we know they have a deal with the government to let chinese people have it free for the advertising the clicks would create, i will post it. unless that isn't cool apollo, doc, arse, any mod?

    What? Lowry has been puttng up double doubles the past couple weeks lol. I have faith Vasquez will turn it around I was stoked when we got him but sadly hes struggled Im generally worried in games when he takes the floor. Vasquez just cant get comfy doing what everyones seen him be so good at running floater, short J catch and shoot 3 and running amazing PnR.

    Havent seen any of it..... whatever though league is full of PGs to come off the bench and be solid for us if Vasquez continues to soak the bed with urine.
