Dampier Visits Toronto
Thursday September 30 2010 - 8:10pm Eastern - Toronto, ON
I had someone let me know last night that free agent centre, Erick Dampier, was going to be in town for a ‘visit’ with the Raptors today. So I broke that news in my blog late last night and then kept an eye on things throughout the day today - while I was hosting the 9am-12pm shift on the FAN as well.
Then late this afternoon I got another tip that Dampier was still at the ACC and that he’d be watching the Raptors evening practice. So …even though I wasn’t scheduled to cover the night session …I went down to the gym on my own time …to see what I could sniff out.
Dampier was indeed at the ACC but I was told that he was not talking to the media.
I did, however, get a 1 on 1 with Jay Triano …talking all about Dampier and the impact that he COULD have on the Raptors if he were to sign on the dotted line
