    He's not. He was traded to New Orleans.

    Maybe its the last place where he has a meaningful resume.

    I don't think he got any game time since us. He was waived? Picked up waived? or something like that lol.

    IIRC, he wasn't waived but simply told to stay home.

    I liked him though...couldn't play a lick but knew his role! Oh yeah, and he could defend with his speed and big pipes...makes me wonder why he wasn't used a little more...hhmmmmm

    When is the free agency listed from?
    Is it before he was traded?

    Perhaps MB is pursuing his true passion now, which is to be a male model.

    He's actually a really decent 3rd PG. The only knock I had on him was his contract (for a 3rd stringer/end of the bench). But I would love to have him back, this time for pennies.

    I'm not sure what constitutes a "really decent 3rd PG" to begin with, but unless it involves a lot of towel waving and some occasional sideline dancing than I'd have to disagree. Banks seemed like a decent guy who had no qualms about sitting for weeks at a time (although he was making $5 million every year to do it), but there's no reason to bring him back whatsoever.

    I'd also like to see him back, I think he would be the perfect fit as our 3 point guard.

    The Raptors don't need a 3rd point guard. We have Calderon, Bayless, Barbosa and that's enough. This team needs to pursue a veteran NBA 3, and a rental big man and that's it.
