    Almost as exciting as waiving Julyan Stone.

    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    I'm going to chalk this up as Masai simply doing some due diligence while already in Vegas for the Summer League. Diawara is 4 years removed from the NBA and was a deep, deep rotation guy when he was there. There's a miniscule chance that he'll end up on the roster… but what's the harm in going and watching him run around for 90 minutes?

    Yeah, could be scouting for 10 day contracts during the season in case of injuries. If we had roster slots I'd make more of it, but I think you're right about Masai just doing his due diligence before the guy heads back to Europe.

    If I remember correctly, this guy has a ridiculous motor and was a defensive stopper in Denver. Sort of disappeared on the Miami bench though.

    This smells like Casey up to his old AA/salmons tricks.

    Also can't hit the broad side of a barn, let alone the net, with his jumpshot.

    keep in mind Masai worked out pretty much everything nba prospect he could for the draft. seems like the kind of guy that's very thorough.

    Masai must keep the French league in high regard. It's seems like his always scouting someone out there.

    One thing about Diawara is that his built like a tank. His jumps hot isn't as bad as mentioned earlier. Shot 36.6 from the three in Eurocup.

    I'd rather give the minutes to Daniels and let him work through mistakes.

    Ditto Feilds, or Hayes. Defensive stopper at the end of your bench or Buycks doing one of his classic dances?
