    McGee is interesting and could potentially be a very good center but I wouldn't touch him. The kid is an idiot and the guys in the current locker room seem like high character players and at least try to be professionals. JV has great character, work rate and has just as much potential as McGee although he will do it in a different style. I think they have a good thing at the 5 not need for McGee I'd rather them invest at the wing (SF where we need the help most).

    I thought we were going to play either ross or Derozan at SF?

    We were ready to offer 36million/3year for Nash. Where did all that capspace go? Did I miss a big name signing ?
    Mcgee is a project but unlike Drummond he already can play on both sides of the court. Mcgee would expect 7million/year contract and I would give it to him. If Casey can keep him on a leash he is a 23 year old superstar (in the making). Imagine the flexibility two real bigs will give us with lowry, bayless, demar, ross and fields in the roster. Big men like him are a rare commodity in the NBA and that is why they get big contracts.
    6.3 to fields, 6 for Lowry. Nobody has been amnestied or no bird rights relinquished. I think that pretty much covers it.

    The fingerprints of Raptors Head coach Dwane Casey are all over this off season’s moves in Toronto. It was Casey who saw incoming rookie Terrence Ross at a practice in Washington during the lockout and told Colangelo that this was a guy they had to watch. Landry Fields is the glue-guy defensively with a three-point shot, last year’s issues in New York notwithstanding, that Casey was looking to add on the wing and after watching Aaron Gray all of last season, Casey knew the role Gray could fill on the Raptors.

    “He is one of our best screeners. You’ll notice that when guys come off of him, they get open,” Casey told HOOPSWORLD during the season. “I like a lot of what he is doing. He has great hands. He is smart. He knows all the positions on the floor defensively, so he is doing a good job.”

    It shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Raptors have agreed to bring the 7’2” 270 lb free agent center back for two more years of clogging the middle and setting hard screens. The big man finished his season in Toronto with 40 starts and played all of them the same way. Gray was the definition of hard work and effort rather than excessive talent which made him a fan favorite at the Air Canada Center. In a late February home win over Detroit, Gray battling with Greg Monroe earned his first double-double of 12 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks and he was send to the free throw line six times in the fourth quarter as Detroit deployed a hack-a-Gray strategy, the Raptors crowd responded with chants of M-V-P. (It was a rough season in Toronto.) Read Aaron Gray On A Roll In Toronto for a more complete picture of what he was contributing.

    The Raptors didn’t need to add a big name center to their roster for next season. They have 7’ rookie center Jonas Valanciunas coming over from Lithuania to join the team after his Olympic obligations are complete. Gray fits what Casey wanted to add in the middle, a true big man who can’t be pushed around in the post and can help create opportunities for other players.

    “He sets the tone offensively for us as far as screening is concerned,” said Casey.

    Gray is not expected to play big minutes for the Raptors, last season he averaged just 16.6 minutes a game. Not a savior, but rather an important role player on a developing young team trying to learn to play the game the right way at both ends of the floor. Re-signing Gray is the right move at the right time in Toronto.

    Good to hear Gray will be back next season. If for no other reason than he reminds me of Marc Gasol minus the skills.

    So I guess we re-sign the Locker room master, Jamaal Magloire?

    No, I think we're done. I believe i read some where (DSmith blog?) that they will likely keep the open roster spot for "flexibility".

    Really? I was actually hoping that Magloire would be re-signed, the guy was a big part of that culture change in practice and the locker room. I know we never saw what he actually did, but Dwane Casey always raved about how a true veteran in the locker room he was. Maybe he comes back as a coach?

    The veteran's minimum is something like $1.2 million per season. That's a lot of coin for a cheerleader/motivational speaker.

    You sure? Can someone back it up? Because, what I've always thought as a vet's minimum was just less than a million.. Hmmmmm. Never been so knowledgeable on the numbers.

    Thanks for that Matt. Hmmmm, I would than agree with stretch, the bucks on Magloire seem high for street clothing.
