    outlaw is a good player for the mle. but, he's not going to be anything other than a solid bench player.
    You could say the same for every other FA mentioned. Besides, I think Outlaw certainly has the talent to be a starter.

    honestly i hope its jj as well......we need somebody off the bench who can hit the open shot as well as drain the 3 with consistency unlike some former raptors (cough cough kapono) but i wouldnt mind seeing barnes as well
    That sort of sounds like Marco Belinelli - who is 2 years younger and has a career 3 pt % within .04 of JJ.

    Though you did mention "consistency", but I think if his minutes were more consistant that would help.

    I like JJ Reddick, hope it's him if only to get a guy who torches us onto our side. He also played very well in the playoffs this year for the magic and will give us the spot up shooter we've been missing since Kapono started to suck.
    no please no kapono 2.0 . Though reddick is better then Kapono but hes still not what the raptors need

    Reddick was certainly not consistent until this past season. I agree, though. There's really no point in getting a guy like Reddick when Belinelli is already on the roster. Belinelli's got far more talent than Reddick, he's younger (as you mentioned) and he can play defense. Raptor fans seem to like a lot of players...until they actually play for the team.

    I don't understand why anyone would advocate getting JJ. Maybe Kapono is still too fresh on my mind, but to me, JJ is the exact opposite of what the Raptors should be looking for.

    Acually from what I've been reading Reddick is not nearly as bad defensively as people like to think. This is from David Thorpe

    Now this was written a few years ago, but I see no reason that this doesn't still apply to Reddick. He may not be the best defender in the league, but he's ahead of where DeRozen was last season and I don't think he will hurt us defensively as much as you make out.
    All that quote says is JJ can guard SOME NBA guards as opposed to no NBA guards. Also states pretty clearly that his motivation to defend is lacking. If we spend the MLE on him, it wouldn't be a surprise that we'd be hesitant to bench him. All of that together hardly means he's even an average defender.
