    It's seems to me that Toronto's had other PGs that were worse than John Lucas III:

    Sundiata Gaines...was he the backup at one time, or the 3rd stringer?

    Default Trade coming...

    Quincy Acy's not playing tonite and they're signing a SECOND string point guard. I'd say Jose time is about done in Toronto. Thankfully.
    Yeah, there's no way Lucas is sigining to be the third string. Jose is gone. Book it.

    I really like this signing because he was on my shortlist of veterans to target to fill out the roster. He's a great leader, locker room presence, offensive sparkplug, and he's got deep-playoff experience. However, if Jose leaves we'll be mighty small with two guys 6'0" and under. But you can count on them to make up for it with grit and toughness. I'd cosign to the idea of bringing in Uzoh if Jose is traded. Hopefully BC is compotent enough to get more than a pick in return for the Spaniard. Overall great signing, low risk / rewards accross the board.

    Looks like its official
    That doesn't mean that John Lucas II is officially a Raptor. It just means that the reports that we are trying to get JLIII is true...

    I seriously don't understand the absolutely negativity or hate on Jose. Am I really the only one who loves Calderon's time in Toronto? He's one of the most loyal Raptors of all time. Gives 110% every night. Sure he might have been a defensive liability, but he has shown willingness to change and get better. I am really gonna miss having Calderon as a Raptor. I hope near the end of his career, he can return back to Toronto and retire as a Raptor

    I know that I for one love his game. He frustrated me earlier on in his career with taking his time bringing the ball up court and waiting till time is running out to dish the ball to someone but that all changed a couple years ago. He deserves all the respect from most fans for at least being loyal.

    Jose is just plain terrible, he's been good enough to keep us out of a great draft pick but not good enough for the team to be very good. He's fool's gold and he always has been. He is awful and I'm glad he's on he's way out.
    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    I like Jose.. havent liked his contract but that about to expire soon anyways..id be all for resigning Jose for a fair market (back-up PG)price, if he was willing to embrace that role on this team...if hes not ready to be a back-up then adios muchachos..

    a bit off topic but we officially have signed Jonas to his rookie scale contract

    Jose played with a shit load of heart, gave 110%, and stuck with us for a long while without complaining a bit. I don't get how people can talk bad about him. He was one of the most loyal guys to play for our beloved Raptors

    not a big lucas fan. saw a bunch of bulls games and when he is the pg the bigs rarely get the ball. he either set up at the top for a drive and dish out to the 3 line or passed the ball off to deng for an iso play.

    i think he is best suited to 3rd stringer and wouldn't want him as a full time back up. if this does prelude the trade of jose i would like to grab johnny flynn before the cavs sign him and give him a go as back up instead.

    I am not discounting the notion of a Jose trade but two things:

    1 acy has no bearing as he can't be traded

    2 Raps had more money to offer than Miami or bulls.

    Acy can be traded. He's a draft pick not a free agent.

    Default Good signing

    Assuming hes getting $2-$3 mm per year on a two year deal .. which seems to be about market .. Im good with this signing. Hes a capable backup and more than capable 3rd stringer.

    Wait, JL3 means the immediate end of Jose? I dont think so. I say he is third stringer this year (unless there is an injury), and is insurance if Jose is traded and we cant get a solid back up, or Jose leaves after free agency.

    I really do not think he is good enough yet to be a consistent back up pg.

    Am I wrong for not interpreting this as"Jose is gone"? Help me out here. I am seeing way to many "Aww, well Jose was good for the Raptors and I hope he can come back later on in his career."

    The rights to him could've been traded but once we signed him he gets the December 15th rule

    I don't think so either. It seems like mostly the Jose haters are taking it out of proportion. It does certainly raise the chances but I definitely don't think this means he is out the door.
