Bobcats -- wow -- just announced release of Erick Dampier. Which means Damp will get to pick his next destination after clearing waivers
The Raptors are currently at the maximum of 15 players counting including Weems and Dorsey both of whom right now have non-guaranteed contracts.
So it seems to me that if the Raptors are going to want to sign Dampier that they are going to have to get rid of one of the following four players to do it.
1. Buy out Evans or Banks
2. Release Weems or Dorsey
Should they let one of those plaeys go and sign Dampier?
