    I can't watch anymore of that. Machado does not resemble a point guard. Since he can't split screens, whenever someone sets a screen for him he ends up double teamed. He killed all the spacing on the floor. And any potential momentum.

    Also, poor, poor, poor blocking out by the bigs -- things look distant for Bebe.

    Bruno and Daniels looked like they may have a future, but no one else that I saw today does.

    Hassan Whiteside looks more polished than Bebe.
    Whiteside is 3 years older.

    I can see why Machado is both intriguing yet also hasn't stuck in the league yet. Gambles way too much

    Read the NBA.com piece on Bebe. He hasn't played in a long time, and is basically really out of shape. Summer League is basically his first step to getting back in shape. So in addition to the summer league grain of salt, also take his play with the returning from extended layoff grain of salt.

    Yup, but he is also showing he is not a scrub. He is rebounding very well, playing like a big, seems to have good help-defense instincts, and just finished 2 dunks (1 lob, 1 put back)

    Bebe still looks like a scrub.

    Basically, I'd like to sign Hassan for that back up C roll. And perhaps send Bebe to Europe or D-league

    Didn't know missing Buycks would have this much of an impact. No one can handle the ball

    how is cabloco shitting the bed in rebounds? he hasn't rebounded well at all in the past 3 games. has he just been sitting out at the perimeter in all of these games or something? (haven't really had the time to watch them)

    All he does is handle the ball. A little passing would be nice. Myke picks up his dribble as soon as he crosses the line.

    Yeah, he has really just been there shooting 3's and defending the perimeter.

    Damn dude. You're tossing Bebe aside based on a few summer league games? He's coming back from a very long layoff, and is basically in terrible shape (self admitted). Read the NBA.com piece on him coming to Toronto.

    Maybe or maybe not Bruno would have been taken before our 37 pick but there is no excuse for this roster here in summer league, NONE.

    damn for the one raptors player getting the most summer league minutes, you'd think the coaching staff would have him try some other shit.

    entire raptors roster is a giant negative in the +/- column while the mavs are all positives.

    He's looking like Durant, a very lanky SG.

    Not tossing him, still like his potential for the future. He just won't be getting minutes this year, I feel. I'd prefer Hassan taking those minutes right now. Ofcourse in the next few SL and maybe even pre-season, he could show me differently. I am definitely not closing the door on him.

    On the plus side, he has the confidence in shooting the 3. Which means its part of his arsenal. It'll be easier to keep him on the floor if he can knock down the spot up.

    However, I would like to see him drive more/harder.

    Playing Whiteside with Bebe looked good defensively. Whiteside does jump well and looks like a decent shooter. Machado-Kobongo-Bykes are useless. Bray isn't even an option.
