    Finally a nice pick up at veteran's minimum. Should have also signed Barbosa when he was available and other veteran players at such reasonable prices.

    Hmmm he is just another shooting guard. We need a small fwd that can power to the hoop. He is not my choice to do that!

    Last year in Boston he shot the ball below his unimpressive career average. 21 mpg 6ppg 33 percent from 3pt range
    38% overall, even FT was garbage at 66%.

    this is NOT the pietrus from orlando. this is pietrus from celtics. he didn't play no defense and racks up fouls quicker than JV. swapping garbage for garbage is not an upgrade folks!

    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?
    You've seen Ilyasova's numbers this year right?

    It's official via @RaptorsPR. Pietrus signed and McGuire waived. Pietrus will wear #20.

    He will also save this franchise for extinction.

    Agreed. This is a decent veteran signing to upgrade McGuire and offset the injury loss of Fields/Anderson. This isn't BC going out and addressing the team's long-standing need for an impact wing for the future.

    You know your team is bad when a Mickael Pietrus singing is an upgrade over any SF on the roster

    It's not like SF is an important position in today's NBA....

    And it's too bad, since the Raptors have a rich tradition of high caliber SFs, such as.... ummm.... half season of Marion?? Turkoglu??

    If only we could pinpoint this team's weakest link, positionally... lets all put our heads together...

    Sigh.....we were just 1-2 losses away from Harrison Barnes [shaking fist at basketball gods].

    Most likely.

    It would be a bit excruciating to watch Demar and TRoss guard Wade/James, JR smith/melo, JJ/Crash, Kobe/MWP, JSmoove/LWill, etc etc.

    Oh, would you have been pissed if we would have signed Ross anyway with Barnes being available. Can never check it, but I would not rule out that it would have happened.

    Wouldnt it have been better if they waived AA instead of DM? At least DM plays solid defense.

    Pissed, no. Disappointed, yes. Then again, this franchise's entire existence has been disappointing (save for one or two years), so nothing new there...

    I somehow find it cathartic to have become a Raptor fan. It's a drama which resembles life much more than being a Lakers fan.

    C'mon people. BC has no doubt been in trade talks with other teams. But at 3-13, they are offering him shit hoping he's desparate. If there was a deal agreeable with another team that would make Raps better, he'd make it. But it's not there right now. Pietrus is better than anything else we have at the 3, so why not make that move. But some of you are sounding like that's his answer to starting 3-13, and it isn't.

    Its not like Barnes is playing spectacular anyways. He's been given heavy minutes but not producing as expected. Even when he produces, he's currently 2 dimensional, just minimal pts and rebs.

    Barnes was probably the expected pick at that time, but if i knew what i know now about Ross, id probably still pick Ross.
