  • Todays Feel-Good Read: Carlos Morais

    I don't think he is making the roster.

    Best of luck to him.

    This basically answers the debate on why we signed him. Masai does want to give African basketball players a chance to see the NBA, it wasn't necessarily a move to improve the organization.

      Regardless of whether he makes the team or not, I'm happy for him even if he is gonna be really bad in the NBA. His dream to play a game in the NBA has finally come true! Seems like a good character guy! Best of luck to him!

        Happy for the guy hopefully he gets a shot somewhere. Best of luck I mean Alan Anderson made it.

          I think Morais will have a big impact on FIBA ball after his trip to the NBA. All of the other FIBA players will want an opportunity to try out NBA hardwood. Great move by Masai to encourage FIBA development.

            Sometimes you can do a thing for more than one reason. Just because he wants to expand African Basketball does not mean Morais is untalented. Also I don't really have a problem using our 15th man to give an entire generation of kids hope.

              You probably missed the debate (I forget who it was with), about the signing of Morais, but I was actually banking on him making this team and he is considered to be the most talented player playing African-pro ball. My expectations for him were too high, but Masai basically confirmed that he didn't bring him over to necessarily improve the organization.

                He also confirmed, to all African basketball players, that the Raptors are willing to give a talented player a shot. Masai already has connections throughout African basketball. He just strengthened and deepened those connections well beyond any other NBA team. could payoff in the longer run.

                      Might not have seen the last of Morais. The training camp process could be invaluable to further invites and we weren't really set up to see what he could give us with DeMar, Rudy, Fields, Ross etc needing minutes.


                      ALSO

                      He still could make the team based on what he is showing in practice (that we don't see). Although Wright and Stone fill obvious needs and Daye and Novak have 3pt shooting more or less covered.

                        If you can get 3 pt shooting with tenacious defense, (assuming Morais has it) so much the better.

                          So it's now between Chris Wright and Julyan Stone, I say it's gonna be Julyan Stone as a third string SG.

                            Stone will be our 15th man, it's pretty much guaranteed.

                              My money's on not keeping any of them, leaving the roster spot open so that we've got more flexibility for potential trades later.
