    Default Raptors Now Have 14 Players Under Contract - Will This Be The October 1st Roster?

    This could very well be the roster when training camp opens. With a 15th player possibly added during October either from the Raptors training camp group or off the waiver wire.

    1. Bargnani
    2. Kleiza
    3. Johnson
    4. DeRozan
    5. Jack
    6. Calderon
    7. Barbosa
    8. Weems
    9. Davis
    10. Anderson
    11. Alabi
    12. Belinelli
    13. Banks
    14. Evans

    If BC tries to pull that stupid move of dumping one his only two NBA point guards for a non-point guard the season will be close to being finished.

    Banks can not play 20 minutes a game as a backup and Jack can not play 35-40 minutes a night as a starter.

    Time to move on. Its now the "Young Gunz" team.

    lol buddah, this team is finished this season anyway, regardless of what transpires this summer. i dont think anybody even BC feels that were going anywhere this year so why not trade away our PG with the worst defence for a player that can fill a hole that we have. the way i see it, jose's the odd man out thats needs to be gone eventually so why not do it now?

    banks really isn't the terrible player you guys make him out to be, he's just grossly overpaid. if anything, i see barbosa being the backup, change of pace guard.

    No, Jose and Evens are going to be traded IMO.

    banks is more then capable of being a good backup, infact we played our best ball of the season when calderon was out & banks was backing up JJ,

    id be more worried about JJ being the starter

    God no this is not the October 1st roster.

    Patience.

    I don't think these players will be on the roster:

    Jose
    Evans
    Jones
    Dorsey (unfortunately because he works hard)

    Possibly Banks
    Possibly Anderson

    Introducing, the weakest team in the NBA.
    As a die hard raptors fan i've already begun dreaming up Harrison Barnes, Brandon Knight, Perry Jones etc in a Raptors Uniform.

    That roster will win a less number of games than the number of games Bosh "gave up on" last year.

    And if it's the Young Guns' team now, then prepare for a more social network frenzied, weak team. With an exponential jump in "jerking" after losses.

    The Raptors currently have 16 players under contract. DJones has an August pick up date and Dorsey has a November pick up date. Hopefully a move or two will be made and Bobby Brown will end up as the 3rd roster PG- he's down with the YG'z. Alabi shouldn't be on the regular season roster- the less roster dead weight ala POB the better.


    C: ABargnani, #DAnderson,*DJones, SAlabi
    PF: AJohnson, EDavis, #REvans, *JDorsey
    SF: LKleiza, #SWeems
    SG: DDeRozan, LBarbosa, #MBellineli
    PG: JCalderon, JJack, #MBanks

    if thats the roster it is not bad you can do some things with it. I would like to see who wins the battle for the 3 spot between weems and kleiza. Also alabi will have get some time to develop I could see him making the reg season roster.

    Send Alabi to the NBDL for a year or 2. The Raptors need certified NBA talent not more projects.

    I am fully a Jose hater, but he is exponentially better suited to play with Derozan, Weems and Amir than anyone else on the roster. I love Jack, but I didn't see him have chemistry with any other players on the team. I don't see a point in dumping Jose just for the sake of doing so. The Chandler trade would have been a coup, but unless he can be traded for a better player and not just a salary dump there shouldn't be any rush to dismantle the only continuity this team has.

    As far as Banks goes, he is best suited to warming the bench as a third point guard, he can play backup minutes for stretches, but he has no point guard instincts and is poor shooting, shoot first point guard.

    Who the hell would take Calderon and Banks? The only way to get rid of them is to take a big contract back as well. Not an option I want.
    Raptors fan for life....sadly.

    I definitely think that BC will try and make a few more moves this summer, involving the usual suspects, but i'm not sure that he'll get anything good. I'm cool with leaving the roster as is and making more changes come dec. or the trade deadline. I'm assuming Alabi goes to the D league and maybe we retain dorsey.
