    Everything Masai Ujiri

    A summary of Masai Ujiri's 2013-2014 moves with the Toronto Raptors:



    July 10, 2013: Traded Andrea Bargnani to the New York Knicks for Marcus Camby, Steve Novak, Quentin Richardson, a 2014 2nd round draft pick, a 2016 1st round draft pick and a 2017 2nd round draft pick.

    July 15, 2013: Signed Tyler Hansbrough as a free agent.

    July 16, 2013: Signed Dwight Buycks as a free agent.

    July 22, 2013: Signed D.J. Augustin as a free agent.

    August 1, 2013: Signed Austin Daye as a free agent.

    September 19, 2013: Signed Julyan Stone as a free agent.

    December 9, 2013: Traded Quincy Acy, Rudy Gay and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings for Chuck Hayes, Patrick Patterson, John Salmons and Greivis Vasquez.

    February 20, 2014: Traded Austin Daye to the San Antonio Spurs for Nando de Colo.



    I mean, so far this guy's done a great job. Only negative was signing/waiving Augustin, but that's a minor mistake.

    Exactly.

    If the trades benefit both teams and the players you send the other way have good mentality & succeed, other front offices will want to deal with you.

    It only takes 1 bad move to sometimes make or break a team. If The Knicks wouldn't have canceled Lowry trade due to Dolan's insecurities, we might be looking at two different franchises today.
    The Raptors would certainly look very different. The Knicks... would still be the Knicks.

    LOL, we have a good front office but let's not go crazy here. There are lots of smart basketball people in the NBA and if Ujiri has a guy you want (or you have something he wants) you are going to do deals with him. Memphis and Orlando both got good value from Toronto for Gasol and Ibaka, respectively. NJ made Raps pay a price to move the Carroll contract.

    Does it get to a point where others don't even pick up when Masai calls because they know they are going to get fleeced? Presti and Masai are buddies (from the deals they do) and I'm sure he owes Masai for making the Clippers pay more for PG - so he probably will deal with him. But who in their right mind would?

    New Balance, Kawhi's own sponsor, marketed Fun Guy. He obviously OK'd it and even wore the shirt at the parade.

    This whole blaming the media or social media talking point needs to stop. Dude went home, for no other reason than to be close to his family as he's always wanted to do... The Raps knew this before trading for him.

    But hey, if you gotta blame someone then yea, blame all of us!
    One thing I want to say is the guys that do the media I respect. Those guys out there put there time and effort into that stuff. But I got to keep it 100% whack is whack. The people out here just ain’t feeling some or I should say a lot of that shit! It’s just facts. Like that whole narrative about nobody wants to play in Toronto we can’t keep superstars etc. etc. Out here, we don’t feel that! no matter what borough you from this is the best city on that fucking planet, fuck all that noise. I just feel the media makes us look soft.

    if mans out here don’t want to even be associated with that soft shit. I could imagine how people like kawhi would feel who are from real places

    Team Canada vs. top 9 Brooklyn Nets by total minutes played last year is below. Talent level looks comparable, IMO.

    Jamal Murray = D'Angelo Russell
    RJ Barrett = Joe Harris
    Tristan Thompson = Jarrett Allen
    SGA = Spencer Dinwiddie
    Andew Wiggins = DeMarre Carroll
    Dwight Powell = Ed Davis
    Kelly Olynyk = Rodion Kurucs
    Khem Birch = RHJ
    CoJo = Jared Dudley
    I think your equivalencies are a little off. Jamal Murray is very close to being as good as D’angelo Russell with a shot of being a lot better but I wouldn’t say he’s passed him yet. RJ Barrett doesn’t do what Joe Harris does and he could really struggle his first year. Jarrett Allen is simply better than TT already. Tristan really isn’t that good. Andrew Wiggins sucks. Spencer Dinwiddie is really good. SGA will be better but probably not equivalent yet. The Nets also worked as a group in a way I don’t see happening with that Canadian team. And you’re missing Caris Levert. Even though he didn’t play the whole season he set them up for success early on and he’ll probably end up being the best out of all those guys.

    When rafer Alston was here I seen first hand the type of places he would go. In my head “what the hell is he doing here” then I remember he is from ja, queens.

    I really do do think our media is lazy and doesn’t put in the work to ask the right questions.

    I still think with gods gods bless we still have enough talent to go to the finals.

    Maybe in a vacuum this is all arguable, but practically the Nets fit a lot better than Canada. But also you forgot Levert who was arguably their best player till he got hurt and was good in the playoffs.

    No matter what, the growth of this roster is awesome. Not to mention that in a year or two this roster could grow exponentially.

    Yeah with all the politicians shaking hands, Kawhi either didn't know Trudeau was the PM or didn't care lol

    The key to the city ceremony presentation to Kawhi is now the worst thing ever.

    The fact this can even be debated is so depressing ...

    Kobe Bryant skill...Andrea Bargnani drive and intensity. People should have recognized this even in high school. Not us, but scouts should have sniffed that out

    I think they’re a lot worse than that. Bottom 5 in the league worse.
