    I think its because DJ plays worse defense than a dead cat, so Casey opted for Stone and Buycks. Bulls do a great job of hiding that, he can hit wide open jumpers all night.
    isnt that the same issue with vasquez though? lack of defense?

    New situation. New player.

    Same goes for Augustin and everybody really ...

    Just look at San Antonio, totally proves my point

    Casey values Defense though so I guess thats more valuable. Than DJ and his streaky shooting and "just go ahead and score cause I cant be bothered to defend" playstyle. I cant believe hes that bad at D coming out of Indiana.... was he not listening to anything Vogel preached?

    You have 40 posts. They are all about Lowry and how bad you hate him. You should be let go from RaptorsRepublic. Or traded to realgm.

    Masai can probably get a first round pick from that trade

    DJ has shown he can be a starter on a mid-low caliber team but has not shown he can be a good backup pg. It probably comes down to getting in a flow with more minutes and system but you have to look at it from Masai's perspective. Vasquez is a solid backup and there was no point to sacrifice financial flexibility for a 3rd string PG. I love Augustin and I think he definitely should have been the backup before the trade and that comes down to Casey.

    Well Mike D'Antoni makes D-Leaguers look like all stars with his offensive schemes. I think Casey has the reverse affect making players look worse on offensive then they really are.

    Augustine was bad in Indiana as well. Does that mean Vogel is a bad coach.

    In Indiana Augustin was serviceable, when he played in Toronto he looked like a D-League level player

    Are people questioning the Raptors because DJ is contributing in CHI? The same type of discussion in the Rudy thread. Lol, neither were that good here and we should be happy they are gone and happy they are finding success elsewhere. And where's the Acy thread like this?

    How is his defense? He has limitations in terms of height, weight and length. Maybe DC didnt think he could do it on that side of the ball. Thibs could be "hiding" him well enough with the team he has. The Raps hadnt kicked in on defense yet when he was let go (not sure on timing here). He was a fairly high draft choice and was always a good ball handler I remember. But meh....I am surprised he couldnt be traded though.
    exactly....i agree that if your that small, you need to be a very good offensive player (ala nate robinson)...but it seemed like he wanted the ball a little too much

    but the main point is, he wasn't SO BAD that he should have been given up for nothing

    I wish we could trade for Thibbs. If he was coaching the raptors right now we would be in a much better position. I am still down on Casey. He could win coach of the year and I would still want him gone. I actually watch these games vs the people who would give him these awards.

    Definitely would want Thibs. I watch the games. Not in love with Casey, but things could be worse.
