    Last season
    PER: 8.58
    3 point %: 33%
    FG: 38%
    FT: 65%


    I support this signing because it'll make BC look like a huge moron since we'll continue losing with Pietrus.

    Waiving DM would seriously be an option, McGuire just doesn't have the skill-set to be a consistent minute logger. Pietrus is for sure an upgrade over Anderson and DM.
    Wow, can't imagine being on a team and being the last player signed and all of the sudden, there are talks of signing a veteran player knowing you might be the one to be let go because you played like crap when given the chance to start this late in your career. Where do you go from there? OUCH!

    Still better than Dom.... at least he will be able to provide something and even stretch the D a little Dom is a 0 option on offense unless he is right under the basket he has the same offensive game as Gray lol. Regardless of what happens with an inevitable trade we have to play the guys we look to trade and boost their value.

    I don't think Bargnani will be traded though if he is props to Colangelo for swallowing his melon to do that.

    Marginally better than Dom.

    70% of Pietrus's shots last season were three pointers. In the playoffs, he shot 20% from 3PT. The last thing the Raptors need is another inefficient chucker that just stands outside the three point line.

    McGuire is shooting 47% from the field. From what I've seen, he's nailed most of his open jumpshots. He shouldn't be creating his own shot. Really confused as to why Lowry/Calderon sometimes pass the ball to him when's he posting up.

    Well its either Pietrues or "Terrence Williams" lol the free agent SF market is pretty small. Really too bad Colangelo couldn't land Ilyasova, Chandler or Wallace this off season.. Pietrus it is.

    Well in Boston he played solidly more often than not and deeper in the playoffs like they were, he didnt get more than like 8 minutes to rest the Truth a little bit. The most I expect from him is playing good D and stretching the floor a bit more +knocking down somegood open looks what more can you ask for really?

    What the heck would you want him to do? Trade for Rudy Gay? Smith? Lebron? You don't think he would like to have those players here too? Your comments suggest that you think he doesn't want to build the best team with the available talent.

    On a somewhat related note. How the F&*% did Fisher not get picked up until now, and were the Raps ever in the conversation? I suppose its possible that Fisher told his agent not to pick up the phone if BC called. If BC didn't at least try to get this guy its
