    Sonny is decent filler if a trade deadline deal goes down. He's pretty much squandered his golden opportunity with the Raps, sad to say.

    DD is too slow to guard SGs and not strong enough to guard SFs yet, so not sure where he fits either. If he can get stronger, then SF could be his natural position.

    I would not go that far. There is definitely room for improvement but I question his ceiling. I don't think he'll be a legit NBA starter but a good player off the bench. It is frustrating to see him work in the starting role, excel, and then regress within a matter of games. He does not play with any sense of intelligence or desire - and this is a contract year! If he can't put it together this year and soon, his future with the Raptors is not only in question but his future in the league. Maybe I'm being dramatic but there are a lot of Sonny Weems in the NBA and knocking on the NBA's door trying to get in.

    Kleiza should continue to start even when Weems is ready to play again. Kleiza is finally healthy again and he is playing well. Weems was not playing well when he was injured ; he had degressed in his play. I really wish they would do something more with the team though! They have an open spot in the lineup and we really need a dominant center and another small forward who can be aggressive and get to the hoop!

    Not unless DD is benched

    or

    one of Weems or DD (or both) develops a consistent (around 40%) 3pt shot.

    right, cuz when you're allowing 120 pts against every nite, having a good 3pt shot will really help...

    did you ever think that maybe the guy who plays the best D consistently should start ?

    and then i dont know, maybe we dont allow the wizards w/o j wall to score 120 on us ?

    Weems should not start. He should not start on any team. He is young, and probably will improve. But he is playing so badly, and he doesn't seem to want to change. Other players try to change their game, see where their flaws are and play more towards their strenghts. Weems' is apparently athleticism. Which should mean good at driving into the paint, and maybe defense. He has been bad at both, been horrible at shooting and has a horrible shot selection. He doesn't help the team in any facet when he's on the floor, at least Kleiza plays smartly and has flashes of brilliance. The only flashes of brilliance I've ever seen Weems have was when he gets streaky and hits bad shots, which isn't actually 'brilliant'.

    Umm.... Sonny Weems = Wally Pipp. Look it up.

    Never been a Weems fan. He harms the team and harms DeMar's development. Kleiza and Weems are 2 different players altogether. I've said this before and I'll day it again, if BC re-signs him to a massive contract, I will give up on him fixing this team. Kleiza has been a proven player in Denver, the Worlds and now. Whether he hits another wall or not, Weems has no business playing more than 20 minutes in my opinion. Take Weems' best game versus Kleiza's last 2, does it even compare? Has he even hit double digits in boards? Case closed.
    When Storakovic is back they should put Sonny at SG instead of SF. Kleiza starts and Storakovic comes off the bench or u could switch it around but they want the younger player to get more minutes.

    I think he'll be a solid player once he gets those three's down. Further into this season i think he'll put up some big numbers just wait.
