    Interesting. We are 3 players over the limit. Although McGuire and Magloire aren't guaranteed, this is interesting. Anybody know any rules on the player limit?

    Yeah, this seems extremely odd....

    ....wondering (hoping) there's a potential 2-for-1, or 3-for-1 deal in the works....

    Pretty sure you can bring as many players as you want into Training camp, as long you cut them by the end of camp.
    Thats how they found Jamario Moon I'm pretty sure.

    They're just camp invites, and besides, both Magloire and McGuire aren't guaranteed I believe.

    Nope, he came from a community college. He was undrafted.

    That's also what I was thinking, but I remember Matt saying something about some type of 'guaranteed' money.

    It's nothing. It's just bodies for training camp. Most teams do this.

    From what I understand both Maguire and Magloire are partially guaranteed, so they will have to pay to get rid of them, but very minor amounts of money

    Can they use them as "trade assets" or not? The official raptors site says about signings not invitations.

    Training camp usually has a few extra bodies kicking around, I don't think we need to read too much into this.

    I will say this though, Jerel McNeal had a great year in the NBDL in 2010/11 and played very well in Europe last year. He could be a decent 3rd PG if Jose does get shipped out, and that could be the teams motivation. Give him a look now and see how he fits with the guys on the team, then if Jose gets moved in a few months you have someone familiar with your sets and his new team-mates. Also he is a decent sized PG, something that Lowry and Lucas III are not.

    Free agents (1) who nobody knows and (2) are signed after almost all teams have a full roster are not assets. Just bodies.
