    Default 2010 Offseason Primer - Raptors Projected Cap Room: None

    2010 Offseason Primer

    By: Daniel Leroux

    Toronto: Though they would have a small amount of space if Chris Bosh moves south this summer, it’s so close to the MLE that it does not mean a whole lot. Bryan Colangelo put in his lot with the Hedo signing, and we will have to see whether or not that works out.

    Nothing new here.

    There is already a thread in the NBA forum about this article.

    Is it possible to grab a Battier/Bowen sort with the MLE? Good defender who can knock down open threes at a high clip? Wright would be perfect if he knew his role and stopped doing so much on offense, but I'm not sure if he is perceptive enough to play within himself.

    Improvement in Triano's coaching, Bosh (passing, defensive effort), Bargs (shooting percentage, defense), DDR, and Belli/Weems should be enough growth, along with an MLE signing. Reggie and Banks can be flipped sometime next season for additional help, if we so desire.

    Not a lot of lockdown defenders amongst this year's free agent class.

    Raja Bell, Rasual Butler and Rodney Carney stand out.
    Keith Bogans and Ime Udoka too.

    They're all above average defenders but they're in the 6-to-6.5 out of 10 range. Not elite ones in the shape of Bowen or Battier.

    Rodney Carney might be the best bet of the bunch. He's the only one who potential to improve defensively and he's already comparable in current ability defensively to the others.

    Raja Bell would be a solid pick up. He has a history with Colangelo, and he's a good defender. I would love to see him come over for the right number. He would be a great boost off the bench.

    Maybe you could link it or it could be made a sticky.

    Thanks

    I don't understand how middling NBA players reason. Replicating Raja, Bowen or Battier's skillset on the court can't be hard even someone like Wright to do. Does he aspire to be Kobe, instead of Bowen?

    I think we know the answer to this, but it is pretty disappointing.

    Carney only plays 10 minutes a game on a very weak Philadelpiha team and his shooting percentages aren't good at all 38.5 FG% 34.8 3FG%. He may have potential but I'd rather see a guy like Raja Bell on this team. He's got plenty of experience in the playoffs, but can he return to his old form when he gets back from this injury?? Butler would also be nice off the bench behind Hedo, and I think Bogans might have found a home in SA.
