    Default Lester Hudson PG

    Wow what a point guard Cleveland picked up for 10 day trial. He signed a second 10 day trial; why couldn't Raptor's find a PG like that to sign for a 10 dayer. He is quick exactly what the Raptor's need is quickness in the back quart!!If Cleveland doesn't sign him long term maybe Toronto should look into this in the off season! Could be a real steal for a back up PG.

    I think we have the back up pg pretty well shored up at this point, don't you?

    Not a lot of people think that. I don't for one. Haven't seen Hudson play, but have him on my fantasyteam and he's putting up crazy stats. Thought about posting about him too because of these. Looks (again, by stats) to be a good and cheap replacement for Bayless.

    Hudson is taking advantage of his opportunity and isn't shy to chuck up shots. Last 3 games attempts of 20, 18 & 22 show the soon to be 28 year old doesn't lack confidence. Haven't seen him play other then the game vs the Raptors but guards this time of year putting up offensive numbers on team tanking don't surprise me.

    I don't care that BC missed out on Hudson as much as time not taking a chance on Terrance Williams. I think that was a low risk high reward type pick up that he sat back and let the Kings collect.

    Why do we need a good and cheap replacement for Bayless again? I kinda think a young pg who's been with the team for a couple of seasons, and has shown a useful skill set. This would be more useful than a D-leaguer who is making the most of an opportunity afforded to him by a lottery team. Kinda like how i'm impressed with Alan Anderson, but not ready to say that i'd rather have him than JJ. Let's see how these guys do when they are regular fixtures on a team going up against defences that have at least scouted them...my guess is, not so good.

    Because he will be a rfa and might be gone as hopefully we won't make the qualifying offer. Bayless' quality as a pg has been discussed elsewhere, clearly I'm in the he'a-not-very-good-camp.

    Fair enough. I might be willing to hang on to him if we can sign him on the cheap. Or sign as trade bait to plump up an offer for a more talented player at one of our positions of concern. Either way I don't see getting rid of him only to be replaced by someone older, less experienced, and therefore cheaper. Doesn't make sense if we are to "hit the ground running" next season.

    I don't think the Raptors "need" anything right now. Just finish out the season, collect as many losses as possible, continue to evaluate any fringe players for next season, and cross fingers for the draft lottery.

    We're going to have to wait until after the draft because we dont know what position we might fill in through that yet.

    I was not trying to be a dick or anything, it was just hard to read at first. I know I make my share of blunders.

    Uzoh cant do anything though. He has no jumpshot and he can't pass the ball either. Hudson can at least score and pass

    Are we really at that point where we're dissecting the merits of 3rd and 4th string point guards? There's a reason why Hudson was not in the nba this season up until a few weeks ago - because he's not very good. Personally, I want no part of Hudson for next season. We can do a lot better than him.

    I do find it comical.

    The guy is taking 17 shots per game, shooting just 40%. He is taking over 7 three's a game, hitting under 2, and shooting 23%. His turnovers are 3 per game. Unlike the phenomena that was Jeremy Lin, he is not even helping the Cavs win (which is really pissing me off! Come on Cavs, quit tanking! Ummmmm. Pot, Kettle. Kettle, Pot).

    Ugh.

    Come on people.

    The only positive I can spin for him is he gets to the line 5 times again and hits 92%.

    Lets go head to head with Andrea Bargnani's career year for you to appreciate Hudson's contributions.

    Andrea vs Hudson
    18 shots/ game shooting 45% as a 7-footer vs hudson's 6-3 with 14shots/game at 40%
    3 turnovers/game for both
    4 threes/game at 35% vs 6 three's a game at 30%
    5.2 rebounds/game vs 4.4 rebounds/game
    1.8 assists/ game vs 4 assists/ game
    10million/ year against hudson's 500,000/ year.

    edit : this is not a dig on bargnani. But we have to give it to a fringe player who is working hard in his second chance. Same goes for Alan Anderson.
