    I've never been more confident about the Raptors future than right now.
    I don't know quick scan of your old posts under the BC era and I can find the above statement said many times in the past .

    Without verifying whether that is true, it is not contradictory to the statement now.

    It didn't make much sense to get him anyway. Good get for OKC though. They need more shooting. Pretty much only their main offensive pieces (KD, Russ, Reggie, Ibaka) were shooters. They could use some situations where the 4th/5th guy on the floor can actually do something offensively.

    Watching things unfold around the league, this really has been an amazing off season for Toronto thus far.

    Masai and Co. deserve a lot of credit.

    While everyone else was waiting to see what would happen, they got their shit done - proactive vs. reactive.

    Best of all no one was overpaid except Vasquez but, realistically, he would have landed a MLE somewhere so it is $1.2M per season overpayment but 2 seasons less on his contract (4 year MLE vs 2 year deal signed).

    The Raptors have the best of both worlds: young guys primed to get better with very high ceilings on their potential while still competing in the here and now.

    They have all their first round picks moving forward and an extra one in 2016.


    I've never been more confident about the Raptors future than right now.
    This hits one what I was talking about earlier. GMs who waited to see what panned out got panned.

    Yeah, James held up NBA business for 11 days while he decided his future. Teams were angry. Some had assets that evaporated during the wait, including the Warriors, who considered Brandon Bass and other names in exchange for a trade exception that expired yesterday at midnight. But everyone takes time to mull hard professional decisions. Those are times to be careful, to bounce ideas off of everyone in your inner circle. LeBron inconvenienced the league, but it was just that ó an inconvenience ó and smart teams did whatever business they could in the interim. Not everything has to be a referendum on LeBron Jamesís personality.

    I really don't have anything against John Salmons at all. I just have something against Casey for playing him too much.
    Precisely my point - if I wasn't so worried about Casey's man-crush on him I'd have him back as a 10th man on a minimum salary no problem.... - Oops too late:

    You take risks, you sometimes get burned.

    Somehow I think "please don't fire me, it was all LeBron James' fault" isn't going to work if some of these teams stink because of their GM's free agency performance.

    This is Draft Net's Summary of him, (Draft Express doesn't have one):

    Strengths: Tough player who prides himself on his defense ... Good on-ball defender ... Great in the passing lanes, one of the premier theft artists in the NCAA during his time at Montana ... Very good nose for the ball, contributed on the glass well for a PG ... Played big minutes through most of his career while mostly guarding the other teams best player ... Has some penetrating ability offensively ... Got to the line quite a bit, aggressive ... Cut down fouls by a nice margin as a senior ... Showed improvement as a passer, gets his teammates involved ... Showed leadership qualities, led the Griz to two straight NCAA Tournament berths out of the Big Sky ... Solid quickness with and without the ball ... Wiry strong, not afraid of contact, competitor

    Weaknesses: After seemingly improving as an outside shooter as a junior, struggled greatly as a senior, particularly from 3 point range ... Turned the ball over at a very high rate ... Despite the recent success of Damian Lillard, the Big Sky does still tend to bring up question marks surrounding ones level of competition faced ... Sat out teams first 7 games with a broken foot, than missed some more time when he reinjured the foot in early March ... Relatively small and can have trouble with size, particularly on the offensive end ... Has struggled when facing NBA level PG opponents during his time at Montana
    Notes: Finished his career averaging 2.3 spg ... Was arrested near the end of April, which is something that could deter teams from drafting him ... A viable choice as a back-up PG down the line, a competitor that should at the very least get a shot to be on a Summer League roster ...

    Played in D-League last year, is a 6-1 PG, about 180 lbs.

    Got arrested and was injured in 2013
    (His senior year) which didn't get him drafted

    Let's see what happens

    I was wondering since billups is insisting he is healthy as he has been in 2-3 yrs, should we pick him up as a 3rd PG, to mentor some of the other guys and play when needed?

    If Andre Miller is still playing and Fisher just retired , Billups probably has one year left.

    Some article from Basketball Insiders on Cherry

    http://www.basketballinsiders.com/nb...the-cavaliers/
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.
