    Default Raps acquire De Colo from Spurs for Daye




    6'5" 187lbs, turns 27 in June. Native of Sainte-Catherine-les-Arras, France
    2nd round 53rd overall pick in the 2009 draft




    DX Scouting Report: http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Nando-De-Colo-5087/

    After last night's game, MU must have thought back to this:



    And for you trivia buffs:
    Sainte-Catherine-lès-Arras is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France.

    Inhabited since prehistoric times, the Pas-de-Calais region was populated in turn by the Celtic Belgae, the Romans, the Germanic Franks and the Alemanni. During the fourth and fifth centuries, the Roman practice of co-opting Germanic tribes to provide military and defence services along the route from Boulogne to Cologne created a Germanic-Romance linguistic border in the region that persisted until the eighth century.

    Some of the costliest battles of World War I were fought in the region. The Battle of Vimy Ridge was a military engagement fought primarily as part of the Battle of Arras, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, during the First World War. The Vimy Memorial commemorates the Battle of Vimy Ridge and is Canada's most important memorial to its fallen soldiers.

    I think you need to stick to your job of making wack, bogus trades.

    Awesome trade. Very serviceable player, knows his role and does it well. Not a true PG, more of a combo guard with nice long distance shooting skills. A true winner, both in Euroleague and with the French national team. Above average rebounder for his position.

    But the best line on his resume is obviously this one : he's a Spurs' pick...

    In all seriousness this guy is a decent combo guard who was getting 12 minutes per game on the Spurs last year and this year. If he can get 12 minutes per game on the Spurs, he can do that here. We've been needing a backup SG and de Colo fits the bill, while also giving us some more insurance at PG. Daye was our 15th man and doesn't even dress most nights.

    We just swapped a guy we grabbed for the min in the offseason for a player that was drafted by and got decent minutes on the Spurs. A win any way you slice it.

    Agrees need someone to cut down the minutes that DD getting. Ross better get his act together now. His not the only option now.

    It would have been a steal if we had given up Daye for a dozen heated bench warming cushions.

    I think we flubbed the deadline to be honest. We needed a true backup C behind Val more than anything else, and now we're rolling with Hayes. When we run out of fouls in the playoffs we're going to see this deadline as a wasted opportunity.
