T minus 1: No sign of what the Raptors might do

by

cavsraps

Let’s start off the day with Chad Ford’s mock draft which insists on us taking Robin Lopez at #17. I don’t see it happening unless Brandon Rush, CDR or even Donte Greene are already taken. There’s no doubt that drafting a hustle-type big man is the easier thing to do, there’s far less expectations from   …Continue Reading


Indiana deal dead, Knick interest in TJ Ford + Exodus to Europe?

by

cavsraps

We all know TJ Ford is going to get traded but that doesn’t mean you have to print a picture like this of him in the Toronto Star. It’s like they went through every image of Ford they could find and picked the worse one possible. BTW, I love newspapers – always a day late   …Continue Reading


TJ Ford + #17 + Rasho for Jermaine O’Neal

by

cavsraps

Update: Deal goes down! The Indianapolis Star is reporting. This is also confirmed (copied?) by Doug Smith. Obviously we’re taking a big gamble if this goes down but I’m all for the proactive nature of this deal, once again giving up the #17 pick hurts but I wouldn’t be terribly upset at this move. O’Neal’s   …Continue Reading


The Saturday Morning Post: Qualifying offers, trade rumours and some Bill Walton

by

garrett-hinchey

Good Saturday Morning! The Raptors extended qualifying offers to Jose Calderon (no agent, fired him) and Carlos Delfino which means they have an intent to resign them and want to have a shot at matching any offers made to either player. This makes perfect sense for Jose Calderon but it’s a little surprising to see   …Continue Reading


TJ Ford, Raptorulosis Fasciitis and Cuban’s load of crap

by

garrett-hinchey

Its hard being rational in the summertime when there’s absolutely nothing going on and the only thing one can do is speculate on free agent acquisitions, hypothetical trades, possible draft choices and when the barrel will hit $250. Its like a disease that starts around May and ends around October, call it Raptorulosis Fasciitis. Its   …Continue Reading


Robin Lopez makes his mark

by

garrett-hinchey

I’m looking through my RSS reader and finding zilch from Doug Smith, Michael Grange and Eric Smith concerning yesterday’s workouts at the ACC. Maybe I’m not looking hard enough but on this note I’d like to point to Oregon Live as having the best basketball coverage for a home team. Jim Kelly had this to   …Continue Reading


Day 1 of workouts + TJ Ford trade talk heats up

by

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

After the workouts yesterday Raptors Director, Player Personnel Jim Kelly didn’t have much to say but did drop the hint that the Raptors are a “fairly active team in the trade market” and one of the reason for that is because our “wing scoring wasn’t good” last year. That’s good because the first step of   …Continue Reading


Five misconceptions about the Raptors

by

garrett-hinchey

Misconception #1: Bargnani is a candidate to be traded There is a better chance of the Raptors shipping out Chris Bosh than Andrea Bargnani. It sounds ridiculous but as of today its a true statement. The fact is that we don’t know what kind of player we have in Bargnani, I mean we know that   …Continue Reading


Expiring contracts, TJ Ford and more

by

cavsraps

Sam Smiths’ reporting that the Raptors are actively looking to package TJ Ford along with some expiring contracts in a trade that would also involve the Heat’s #2 pick. The report also states that Calderon will be the starting PG come next year and the Raptors are hoping a team can look past TJ Ford’s   …Continue Reading


High quality Raptors beat Pistons for feel-good win

by

cavsraps

Detroit Pistons 82, Toronto Raptors 89 It’s good that Jose Calderon could see what Sam Mitchell couldn’t: that TJ Ford is best suited as a starter and coming off the bench for him isn’t exactly second nature. These sentiments were being echoed by fans well before the media had the temerity to even suggest a   …Continue Reading
