    Ed Davis. Let's bring him back.
    I'll bring him back for a cheaper contract than Tyler Hansborough. That's the only condition we bring him back.

    I only really saw much of him in the first round, but I liked the looks of him too. He was shooting the three great and at least looks big enough to defend as well as Salmons.
    Demare Carroll improved the most since the last two years. Feel-good story for a scrappy SF to gain some range and to reign terror in the playoffs for a near-upset...is he a free agent yet?

    This thread is dangerous to Raptors Republic Dynasty Fantasy Basketball League.

    I shall keep my hidden gems to myself until after our free agency period has expired.

    Gordon Hayward. Is he a hidden gem? Thomas Robinson. I just think he can be really productive if you give him a chance. Also Gorgui Dieng.

    Nothing too crazy.

    Reggie Jackson and Thomas Robinson. Reggie if Lowry leaves. Robinson because I'd rather have him than Hansbrough as the 3rd PF. His PER 36 numbers this year were actually pretty good. He can rebound like crazy at least. He was so damn good in college, I can't fathom why he hasn't been good in the NBA.

    Anthony Bennett, despite all the bad hype, this kid has some real tools to play with as long as he can run some baby fat off of himself, and stay away from rotten ronnies.( McDonalds for anyone who don't know)
    I would love to get my hands on Bennett. When he finally got into decent shape his ability to hit the jump shot as well as his handle (and unselfishness) showed flashes of being a great guy to have operating the post option at the top of the arc.

    Then I noticed that he could play very well defensively because he is strong and fast....and freakishly long so he did well on the boards as well. Cleveland have themselves a great mix of talent and now just need the right pieces to put it together.

    *cough by trading Kyrie cough*

    Entirely possible. Dude can be Jamal Crawford one night shooting....but he could be a JR Smith the next.

    I like Robinson. I think when he gets his mid ranged jumper down he will be able to make a niche for himself with his speed. He is just so short...

    Lol this could totally describe JR Smith himself. Some nights he plays like Jamal, sometimes he plays like bad JR lol

    Not sure how hidden LaVine is, but this guy has major upside.

    Kyle Anderson is another guy being slept on because of his lack of athleticism (some of you are seeing my UCLA bias here... lol), but he could be a Lamar Odom/Boris Diaw type 6th man which we've seen have been very valuable players to championship-level teams.

    I would go with Xavier Henry.
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    Was going to say the same dude, mentioned him a few times in free agent threads. Was #9 in the league in FTA/48, gets to the line at will. Hits the three, big strong body. Could be a really good player in a couple of years IMO, still just 23 or so. Just waiting for an opportunity.

    Haha he is more often Jamal than JR tho. Without the attitude, but instead can never seem to get 100% healthy

    There were a few games towards the end of last season Where Denver was giving Quincy Miller some play time and there were moments he looked like he would make a really good 6th man that could put up points off the bench.

    Quincy did have some good games yes. He has quite the good handles and court awareness, and he gave effort on D. I would take a flier on him for sure. Still so skinny though and gets pushed off his spots too easily, I think he is going to be a longer project, but one that teams shouldn't abandon.

    Wesley Johnson could be that 'meaty SF' we need off the bench.
    Or Al Farooq Aminu
    Or Xavier Henry for backup SG, although we dont have that much cap space to work with esp after we resign lowry
    Maybe take a chance at Jason Smith? He's fallen off the radar

    Wesley Johnson is not very 'meaty'. I'd rather see about Aminu

    Wesley Johnson did have a very good year. I don't know if I take a flier on him this next season, I want to see more from him first due to his rocky career path so far. If he plays well again then I would definitely look at him
