    I think Casey doesn't even learn Bebe's full name until next year

    We have 25.3M to sign Lowry, Vasquez, Patterson and whoever else we want. Since we already have 11 guys signed for next year that are gonna be on the team (I'm not counting Daniels because ujiri said he'll either be in the d league or in Europe).

    If Lowry signs for 12 like expected, we have 13.3 mil to spend to avoid luxury tax. Patterson for 6M and Gravy for 4M is certainly realistic, which means we have just over 3M to sign a backup SF. Definitely enough money.
    I think now with the Livingston's deal Vasquez might want something closer to that range. We will see. Also I don't think you get a good backup small forward with 3 mill.

    We SHOULD be able to sign a guy like Carter with 3M.

    Again, SHOULD seeing as that's how much he made last year and he's definitely not getting any better

    And as for Gravy as long as it's a 3 year deal I don't see him turning it down, it's obvious he wants to be in Toronto so the extra million or two shouldn't be an issue.

    I hope you're right

    Terrence will be starting not Fields. But in terms of everything else you make good points.

    Oh and Patterson won't be starting over Amir. He might get more minutes than Amir throughout the game because of Amir's ankles but he won't start.
    I agree that what I've written is not the likely starting line up, I just think there's better mix of skill sets, and there's virtually no drop off in talent, depending on who in that second unit can drive the ball.

    I think this will be a breakout year for Ross. Coming into training camp last year, he had no clue what his situation was. Now that he knows he will be getting consistent minutes ,and most likely starting, he'll be busting his balls this summer. Book it!!!

    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

    starting: lowry, derozan, Ross, johnson, valanciunis
    2nd: vasquez, williams, ??, 2pat, big nog
    extras in order of playtime: Psycho T, hayes, cobaclo, novak, de colo, fields

    heres hoping cobaclo can make that 2nd unit quickly. Otherwise we should be looking to move one of the extras to make space & secure a good SF with size & defensive ability

    That's a nice lineup. Only one more guy to get...Sefalosha has a meeting with Toronto already scheduled.

    These guys have the ability to play at a faster pace, with more fast breaks and fewer mid-range jumpers than the starters: small ball. I've said before that it is important for the second unit to have its own identity, and to change speeds from the first unit. The starters who play with them need to adapt, as well.

    SF: Caboclo
    PF: Patterson
    C: Bebe

    I actually want the young Brazilians to get some PT, doesn't have to be a lot. My ideal rotation would be

    PG: Lowry (33)/Vasquez(15)
    SG: DeRozan (25)/Lou (18)/Vasquez(5)
    SF: Ross (28)/Caboclo (10)/DeRozan (10)
    PF: Amir (23)/2Pat(25)
    C: Val (30)/Bebe (15)/Amir (3)

    Breakdown:
    DeRozan - 35mpg
    Lowry - 33mpg
    Val - 30mpg
    Ross - 28mpg
    Amir - 26mpg
    2Pat - 25mpg
    Vasquez - 20mpg
    Lou - 18mpg
    Bebe - 15mpg
    Caboclo - 10mpg

    10 man rotation. Lou would be the only guy that takes much of a hit minutes wise. DD and Lowry get more rest

    Perfect
    Is there a way to upvote/like/digg you into Casey's head?
