    I'm happy for the guy, he deserves a serious look in the league. However, I don't like it for the Raptors. Why are the calling up a SG when there weakest position is SF? Trey is going to have to compete for time behind DD, Weems, maybe Barbosa, even Bayless. What if he becomes invaluable? What if we keep him? Will he be able to get play time once people get healthy? Or will Johnson ride pine?

    Maybe it's because Barbosa has been banged up all year, they are now cold on Sonny Weems and they feel Trey Johnson could be a diamond in the rough. If the guy plays well enough to stick on the roster no one will be questioning this move.

    Agreed. What is the worst thing that could happen? His 10 day is not renewed?

    love the move. in fact, i feel like they should sign him for the rest of the season just for a little continuity. worst case scenario he goes back to the dleague. he could end up being a great, cheap piece of the puzzle.

    Yeah, and if he's decent then suddenly Sonny Weems becomes a nice cheap trade piece to pad a trade.

    or it motivates Sonny and he gets back on track, competition for those minutes cannot hurt
