    They had to get down to 15 and he was the best option to let go.

    This move just saved the Raptors a little under $1 million

    Team Salary is now down to about $60.9 million with still two non guaranteed contracts out of the 15 under contract.

    The two non-guaranteed are

    Weems
    Dorsey

    both at $854K

    Since the Raptors are now at the 15 limit this could have been the last roster move before opening night but then it could not be

    I thought that they would at least bring him to camp. Even though he has no offensive game he is a big body that actually hustles on the court and bangs in the paint.

    Still waiting for BC to trade AB7.......until then it's all just news.lol

    Very surprised that they're carrying a full roster. I'm assuming they'll be bringing Bobby Brown into camp as well. Really surprised. Why did they bring Anderson in for again? With a massive trade exception wouldn't you keep at least one roster space open just in case? I'm confused.

    This is the worst move BC could have done. Dwayne Jones was this season's Sonny Weems.

    Dorsey is not guaranteed. He and Reggie are kind of redundant in that their games are very similar. I think that there is a very good chance that both them will not be under contract by the time of the season rolls around when you have to turn a non-guaranteed contract into a guaranteed one.

    Sounds about right. This means Dorsey's chances of sticking go up.

    If Dwayne Jones gets waived, does it make a sound?

    And I thought he was going to be this year's POB, but I guess no one can take his throne.

    I would say yes but seeing how no one would be there to hear it, the question cannot be answered.

    It made a $1 million he won't be earning in 2010-11 sound in his home.

    I hope he doesn't have a significant other that he is supporting or else the sound of him getting cut could have been pretty loud.
