    I have a feeling AA is going to get paid way more than he's worth by some dumb team (please god don't let it be us)
    With the basketball related restraining order put out against BC, I think it's safe to say that won't happen here.

    we have too many wings as it is, his roster spot should go to a big.

    I wouldn't mind seeing him come back if the mandate for next year remains playoffs or bust. He's a high character guy, pretty good defender, and he bailed the Raptors out of plenty of games last season. Ideally he's not going to be putting up the number of shots he did last year on a good team, but I think part of that was born out of how bad the rest of the second unit was for most of last season. If the rest of the bench is shored up this offseason then I think he could provide decent depth on the wing.

    I know everyone gets up in arms that he "stole" minutes away from Ross, but a lot of that blame should be pointed at Ross too. He made it pretty easy by stinking the place out for two straight months during the back half of the season.

    If Casey is coaching, no.

    He is a good minimum 3rd stringer.
    Exactly. I was going to say yes bring him back in a diminished role.

    No. Feel-good story indeed. But he doesn't understand his role, leading to him over-extending and over-contributing.

    You got to admit he went Kobe a few times this year. And thats pretty cool but he tried to do it to often, and it's part Casey's fault for logging him all those minutes while T-Ross sat on the bench but it's also part ownerships fault too for not giving Casey too many options as our bench was pretty damn thin; Anderson, Fields, John Lucas, Telfaire, Acy and Gray while the rest were all fuckin injured.

    But since the season was shit and it was all for nothing, I would have definitely rather watched Ross develop than Anderson jack up every shot that comes his way.

    Yes.

    A need a tank season, so we can grab one of the prized players coming draft night.

    let AA shot 20 shots a game and if it happens that he catches on fire in 1 out of 4 games he usually does, just bench him

    Who the hell asked you to explain yourself? lol. It's a forum. Threads are made.

    I don't want AA here either.

    When T Ross has no defense, who do you turn to?

    Landry Fields or Alan Anderson.

    If LF isn't able to fix his shot, guess what? It's going to be the AA show all over again.
    Why do I feel that I have to explain myself? Why does this thread exist?

    If LF can't fix his shot and Ross is still a 'deer in the headlights' do what most half decent teams would do: Have one of Demar or Rudy on the court with him. That's why those three are getting paid the big bucks. Bam. Done.

    He's not a specialist, he's not a vet with experience winning. On a bad team he's instant offense. On a good team he's deep bench injury insurance. In other words, he's what Pietrus was supposed to be this past season. Let him go do that somewhere that needs that. The Raps have too much money invested in their wing players (especially if you include Kleiza) to have dude acting like he has a license to shoot...

    Don't get me wrong, with the right coach, who would give him strict direction, I think he's a usable piece. But, with the amount spent on the wings this year, AND a lottery pick he shouldn't have gotten the type of minutes he got, especially after the Rudy Gay trade.

    Let him go, but be prepared for the fact that some other team is going to give him a contract, force him to play within his limits, and turn him into a very useful player. If they can get him back for near minimum, then sure, especially with a different coach.

    If he doesn't end up here, he'll be signed by other team I believe. Toronto gave him chance come back to NBA and he used it quite well.
