    As fifth big in a player coach role he is a fantastic option. Great to body up on JV in practice. Gets in the ear of people that need it etc... Bargs, JV, ED D, Gray and Magloire is a lot of depth at the 4 and 5 spot. Wouldn't mind picking up Reggie Evans again for insurance

    I would love to have Jamal back!
    He was all class ... showed a fire that we haven't seen, either from the bench or the court, since Oak ... TOUGH!

    Hypothetically, we bring back Gray and bring over Val ... no reason we can't have Jamal ... Even with Bargs, and Ed or Amir.

    I expected nothing from Jamal when they signed him and expected it was almost a publicity stunt. Shows how much I know. I wonder who it was on the mgmt team that wanted him originally?

    Aaron Gray is also a player who doesnt back down physically from anyone and is bit more mobile (thats not saying much) but I like JM's picks....he sets really good & hard ones with very little give. Both back will be good but that ends it for Solo here I think. Wonder if the UK bond is a factor between JM & DC.

    I'd like to see both Big Cat and Gray back. Big Cat is the toughest player the raps have had in a decade and he is essential to the culture change. Gray has proven to be a serviceable big, and he seems perfectly suited to back up Jonas (or start games when playing against teams wider-bodied centres)

    Magloire - Dwayne Casey's next assistant coach.

    But honestly I do agree with having him there to help mentor JV. Gray's not experienced enough to show JV anything. Magloire as bad as he has gotten still can how JV some shit he use to be able to do.

    Can't believe he's turning 34 next month and not 43... Well at least I feel younger now.

    Wow. He must be quiet the influence in the locker room, to get such high praise, I'm impressed, I guess there is a lot we don't see. But if Casey wants him back THAT bad, he must be good for the team, I'm all for it.

    The #1 job for this guy, whether it's Magloire or Alabi, will be to be a credible opposition for JV during practice. No need to say Jonas will learn much more about NBA game by facing Magloire on a daily basis, no matter how much he has left in the tank.
    +1 on this too.

    Magloire is back with the Raptors next year as a player, I'm about 95% sure of it. He'll be our 3rd center behind JV and Gray.

    I just want Magloire back. You can tell on the bench, the coaches praise, and the interviews that this guy is a locker presence, true veteran. He's a good role for JV to follow for sure.
