A quote from Steve Simmons from the Toronto Sun.... anyway I feel this way !

All the news of recent and proposed free agent signings and we are on the sidelines. Oh, I forgot Aaron Gray.

Maybe it is true that Toronto will not be competitive with US markets for free agents until we start winning and the best way to build a winner is through trades and the draft.

Yet sometimes I think Toronto is being marginalized by the NBA media. Just once I would love to see the Raptors front office pull off a deal that will quiet the naysayers and elevate Toronto's profile in the league.


When I look at the changes made so far ...gone are Forbes, Butler, Carter, Alabi and Bayless coming in are Valanciunas,Landry, Ross, Fields.???? we have improved the talent level. But we're not there yet!
