Nice idea. Fill the empty roster spots with low salary guys who can play some D so Casey has possible subs when he feels like puking at the effort he sees on the floor under his own basket.
I admit I don't know most of these suggestions well enough to have an opinion, but the idea of having guys who can at least demonstrate what Casey is trying to get across during team practices is nice. And maybe the "all defensive team" during practices would shame some of the other guys into picking it up a little.
I like the idea of Mo Evans. He could theoretically backup SG, ad even start at SF
I've been wanting BC to sign Jason Collins. Cheap under the radar guy we can pick up, plays good D and is a good veteran. He could even play backup once JV comes over. Mo evans would be a good pickup as well, help us with the 3 pt shooting.
I cannot think of any possible reason we would want any of those guys except Jason Collins.
Aren't we completely forgetting about Alabi? I think he warrants a look this season after his recovery from his knee problems. Reports are he looks good.
And is there confusion between Collins and Mikki Moore? Because it was Moore that got all the credit for his D on Bosh in those playoffs and parlayed that into a nice hefty contract the following year.
He's nothing but a body to foul guys. Waste of time, resources and a roster spot as far as I'm concerned.
- Kwame Brown
- Jeff foster
- Joel Przybilla*
- Jamaal Magloire
- Aaron Gray
But if its nothing more than just filling a hole... why not find someone who is cheap and usefull or atleast potentially usefull. Would rather give a random guy in the D-league a chance as opposed to Magloire or Collins, or even Kwame.
Magloire only played in 18 games last year, averaged less than 9 minutes, made only 13 FGs all year. In his prime he was an all star and had some nice contracts but there is a lot of mileage on those wheels of his. I hope he signs with a team other than the RAptors.
Quite frankly I couldn't see Magloire as an allstar. Over rated.
I'm just a hater.
Mo Evans would be a nice fit. Not only could he start at SF and provide D and 3-point shooting, but I think he'd also be a good mentor for guys like Demar and JJ. Jason Smith might be an intriguing piece as well, and he's young which should make it easier to trade him if he doesn't fit into the plans once Jonas comes over.
I think the trade route is more likely to yield defensive types of players the Raptors could use.
Dahntay Jones immediately comes to mind.
