    Default Dupree?

    Anyone know why Dupree is back?

    I thought I read somewhere he was hardly a favourite among the team and he had bad hygiene (really not trying to be a d!ck here, did read it).

    My only hope is it is part of something larger to make numbers work.

    More likely it probably means Weems is still not good and they need depth on the wings.

    All speculation on my part - anyone else have a theory?

    *EDIT* http://www.thestar.com/sports/basket...ptors-hit-road

    I probably should have done a little more looking.

    Bargnani is out for at least 3 games (not gone on road trip) unless he meets up with team later, Jose still has foot issues, Evans as well all know, and as mentioned above Weems still has his back issue - and Dupree is a non-guaranteed contract. Sounds like they are looking for bodies.

    Who knows, but I also just read that Bargnani is not going on our road trip either.

    Bad hygiene? As in no showers after a game?

    The guy didn't even do a stint in the d-league and we are giving him a call?! I rather give hasbeen Antoine Walker a call at least he is working on his game there.

    I would have liked to take a look at Earl Barron and see what he had to offer. We really need a big man in the middle! Not sure where B.C. is going with this move! I know he is a non guaranteed contract but we all know he will not stay and we already know what he can or cannot do so why not Earl Barron see what he can do as a big man with a non quaranteed contract!

    agreed. i think its just because dupree already knows the raps system, they dont need to teach him plays, etc. if they get barron in, he might need a couple more weeks to adjust, which they dont have because bargs may come back anytime soon. plus barron may not be willing to just play for scrubs right now, coz he knows team who are willing to offer a better contract may come calling....

    but barron would definitely a better acquisition

    Yep. He knows the system, tons of injuries, and they prob just need another warm body in practice. Weems isn't playing tonigh too according to Devlin.

    Pretty sure he's just there to fill the void as of right now. But yes I would love to see Antoine Walker play again.

    I assume they picked Dupree over others because he already knows alot of the plays and players too.

    Why are people upset over this signing? He's got a non-guaranteed contract, knows the players and system. He'll take Peja's roster spot when Peja is bought out. Win-Win-Win.

    And Dupree was waived this morning. My guess is that this team is gonna start looking for a free agent PG with Calderon and Bayless hurting...

    For you jerkies looking for the link, here it is.. LINK
