    Default Knicks & Cavs after Weems?

    Cleveland, New York have shown interest in Raptors' restricted free agent Sonny Weems, sources say.

    Come on Knicks, help us out here on this one. Poison pill Colangelo right out of revisiting the dumb idea of bringing back Weems to make poor decisions with the basketball. He'll be perfect next to Lin.

    Any chance of a S&T?

    I mentioned it elsewhere... I'm starting to think BCs QO to Sonny is just a ploy to tie up even more of NYs nash-cash

    I think Sonny Weems might have improved, with his Kobe mini afro, he might channel some inner talent and finally be a solid bench player, just not with the Raptors I hope.

    Issuing a QO to a player of interest to other teams is just good business ... now the Raptors will have options with regards to S&T or matching offers on an asset of theirs - even it Sonny isn't in the planned rotation.

    I AM still curious if the QO to Bayless was the same effect, or if he is more in the plans for next season.

    I don't think Weems will be back. He publicly stated so and BC knows enough to not sign players that do not want to come or stay in this case.

    “Toronto is not my team,” Weems offers. “They don’t mention me in their future plans or anything like that...I’m just not focused on Toronto because you read articles about the team and my name never comes up.”

    The irony here is some would say weems' upside is better than that of Fields.

    He is a better athlete than Fields but not as stable.

    That doesn't imply he doesn't want to play in Toronto. That quote was from last Feb. Weems had come to terms with the fact the Raptors weren't bringing him back that year. You can't take something out of context from February.

    He is a Stanford graduate. I don't have any statistics to back this up, nor can I be arsed to look for them. But I have a feeling that the more intelligent a person is the longer they can play in the NBA....see Grant Hill - Steve Nash etc...

    I can and I will. That quote has spurned lover written all over it. You signed a year contract without an out clause...of course they are not going to plan around you

    Not that I agree with that idea but even if Weems' upside was greater, he's so far behind that he won't catch up.
