    That's not the case.... at all. Acy will have a career in the NBA, and as such is a good pick as a second rounder. He'll be a rotation guy which is excellent with the 37th pick.

    anyone feel that Wright is taking too many shots?

    Ross having another good showing again. It's just the shot selection. He looks like his going to be a volume shooter. His just not going to get the shots his getting in summer leagues during the season .
    Like Sam Mitchell was saying, Ross has the green light. Running through screens, catch and shoot. He's going to miss a lot of those, but it shows he can get it off, and gives them a lot of film to give him pointers. Ross is going to be a very good player.

    I don't know, I think Ross has been pretty bad. Obviously no one has been good (Ed at least showing something) but a guy with Ross' abilities should be able to shoot better than 25% against Miami's team of scrubs.
    But he is taking good shots, that is huge. Obviously he has been told to run off screens, catch and shoot. You will not see him force those shots in a regular season game, but it gives coaches a sense of what he can do. What is important, is that he can get his shot of pretty much whenever he wants. And for the most part, he's doing everything right. Even a lot of the shots he missed were good shots. If he was taking a lot of ill advised, really well contested shots I'd be concerned, but he didnt. Ross is and will be a player. Period. Great pick!

    Ross just dribbled the length of the floor did a spin move to get into the heart of the D and dished off to a cutting big who got the basket and one. I've NEVER seen Demar do that. I have a official man crush on Ross.
    He's awesome dude. Me too. Has totally exceeded my expectations. That kid can flat out play.

    2 years in a row now I have looked like an idiot second guessing BCs draft picks ... I guess I should acknowledge that I'm not a pro scout nor do I have any front office training. Next year regardless of pick I'm just gonna nod, finish my beer, pay my tab and go home

    I'll believe that when he shows some decent play. How's he suppost to become a rotation player if our 3rd string PF is looking like an Allstar compared to him in the summer league.

    you won't have to worry too much. If our pick is high enough to critic it will be going to Houston anyway. So, there's the silver lining

    I know it's just the summer league games and it's the first "professional" match for rookies, but Rivers not playing so well against Lillard.

    Davis really troubles me. I don't see what I want out of a starting PF or a guy contending for it. Little intensity, out of control a lot, bad hands, loses concentration on defense, poor court awareness, turnovers. I would trade him if I could get a solid player in return (for him and Jose possibly) He might improve in the future but he's got a long way to go.

    The only conclusion I have come to with summer league is that I miss those Sam Mitchell post game media scrums when he was with the raptors.

    Raps went 8-0 in last year's summer league.

    Summer league means very little from a team perspective.
    Agreed that it means very little accept when you compare the on court talent. Miami just might have the second worst team in Vegas. Raptors have 4 players on their team that are looking to find away into the real teams roster and 2 of them into the rotation. Hopefully the only good that comes from this is BC realizes Uzoh can't be the back up PG and if he moves Jose it needs to be for a player not a salary dump (TPE).

    Thoughts after two games:

    - Wow, Daniel Orton is really bad at basketball. I was thinking he might be a good #3 C, but wow. He's really bad at basketball.

    - Terrence Ross looks good. To make a grand statement after 2 crappy pre-season games: he's a better SG than Demar, right now. Great perimeter shot and he's always shot-ready when receiving the ball, gets it up quick. Looks good off screens, always moving. Rip Hamilton-esque. Looks like he has decent instincts on D.

    - Acy IS Reggie Evans the 2nd. I don't know if he'll stick this year, but he probably has an NBA future of some sort. He's tough, physical, nose for the ball -- all the classic rebounder cliches fit.

    - Ed looks more aggressive, but that's as it should be in summer league. He doesn't look particularly bigger, though, nor has he improved his O game much, by the looks of things. Still getting manhandled underneath by bigger guys. Was hoping for a more dominant showing for a 3rd year player.

    - Uzoh hasn't done anything to play himself out of the 3rd PG spot. He is what he is.

    - No one else is even remarkable in any way. Fodder. Bobby Brown keeps showing why he can't get a pro gig, though -- awful. Wright is definitely trying to show he can fill a SF role for Toronto by hurling himself at the rim on every drive, but I think it's in vain.

    Terrence Ross, Toronto Raptors – After an outstanding 21-point performance on day one, Ross struggled on Sunday. He had 14 points on 4-14 shooting from the field. He also committed five fouls and five turnovers. Ross is a bit undersized and he tends to struggle when the opposition gets physical with him. While he continued to be aggressive and got to the line when his shot wasn’t falling, this wasn’t a very good outing for Ross. He’ll have a big test on Monday afternoon when he faces off against Dominque Jones and the Dallas Mavericks.
