    Doug Smith at the Star, I believe. And Sportrac has reported Cherry's deal to be fully unguaranteed, but reports at the time of his signing were that it was a partial guarantee that clinched him signing with us over CLE, so I doubt that is accurate.

    Cherry deal indeed seems guaranteed a bit
    "I always believed that I could play at that (the NBA) level," said Cherry, who is currently working out under the watchful eyes of Raptors' personnel in Los Angeles. "It was pretty much me going out there and showing everybody I could play at that level. I knew what I was capable of, and what my abilities were.

    "I think the next thing for me is to go into Toronto and be a sponge," Cherry said. "I know I will be a third guard or whatever on the team. I am behind two great players in Kyle Lowry and Greivis Vasquez. I plan to soak up as much knowledge as I can from the coaching staff and those two players who have been in the league for quite a while. Coming in as a rookie there's no better point guards to learn from. When I get my opportunity I have to leave some type of impact in the game."

    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    Another deal is definitely underway if Cherry is guaranteed a roster spot. Think Toronto - Detroit - Sac are working a three way to send JSmith and Maclemore but need expirings to complete.

    Roster is full and JSmith to Sac can't be done since the Kings have no expirings. If Detroit wants to avoid the Monroe QO problem they need to move Smith and the Kings want him.

    Doug Smith is not a good source imo.

    Well that little Star write up was done by "Star staff," one of Doug's favourite pen names. It also linked to a Stephen Brotherston (who loves to drop by here and leave stupid comments about the Raptors from time to time) "report" which was itself a "report" of a tweet from a Texas Longhorns fan account, which didn't mention or link to a source at all.

    Not that I'm doubting this particular transaction, but how much effort does it take to actually find a source report? Lazy ass "journalists."

    Most tenforthewin proposals probably count as sources for Doug Smith.

    Eric Koreen & Josh Lewenberg, as well as Jay Saturo & Eric Smith are probably the best resources for all things legit Raptors media wise.

    Sometimes I look at my comments and find them full of "quotes." I don't know how all those "quotes" get in there, but they do. Then I have to go back and "delete" them all. But sometimes I just "leave them" there, because in a weird way you can use a whole fistful of these "quotes" in a single "comment" and it still makes some absurd kind of "sense."

    In unrelated news, when Russians "air quote" they won't hold both hands up high and do the "finger dance" - they hold the right hand lower (maybe chin level) and the left hand higher (forehead level) because when writing in Russian the opening quote is actually down on the line (where you put periods and commas) and the end quote is up high. It's weird.

    We waived Diante Garrett before Free Agency, you're not up to date.

    I get that... I'm suggesting NBA.com isn't... Considering they had this linked up on their home page you would think it would be updated! No need to be sassy

    That page is pretty screwed up when it comes to the Raps anyways. They still show Buycks and Stone as under contract, and De Colo as a FA. The Bebe mess is funny. First they show Bebe as a rookie ADD, then show him as a MINUS from trade, while Atlanta shows him as an ADD from trade. Screwed up there.

    He averages like 20 points per game in 2k so I'm down!

    I see the raptors being part of the four team deal that is going to take place for kev love. Maybe fields and/or Hayes expirings will be involved?
