    This has been shared by a few on the Raptors beat. It's better defence than blowing in his ear. Would look good on the national team.

    Just waiting till him and SGA's contracts are up. Need those two on the Raps pronto.

    Canadian OG
    OG is way too chill to pull that move.
    That’s straight up Sean Avery territory.
    Loving it.

    Japan reportedly concludes Tokyo Olympics will be cancelled

    Looks like we don't have to worry about who isn't going to play for Canada this summer ..

    Also Canada is fined $200,000 for not sending players to a November tournament
    Cash grab by FIBA. Not surprised. FIBA, FIFA and the IOC are greedy slime balls.

    Using the pandemic as an excuse to pocket some cash is a new low, but totally within character.

    Tyler Ennis and Kyle Wiltjer are playing together in Turkey....and playing very well. While Wiltjer will never be a huge defensive force or great rebounder, he is a solid offensive player. In 5 games this year he is shooting over 50% from the field, over 47% from 3 (16.2 ppg), adding in a respectable 7.4 rpg and 3 assists. In 21 games last year he shot over 40% from 3.

    Is this a guy that should get another crack at the NBA due to his floor spacing abilty? Do we need to take anohter shot at the Stanley Johnson's and Hollis Jefferson's or take an established Euro League guy with a specific skill set?
    You had me at "established Euro League guy with a specific skill set."

    Hot take: this rona virus shit fucking sucks
    That's not a hot take. It is a level-headed and rational summation of the available facts.

    Kerr was the GM of the Suns and he went nowhere (I remember him bringing in a washed up Shaq and totally killed their chances of winning).

    Nash would be a better coach than GM. He was one of the best floor generals in the game. And probably has a lot of respect from guys like KD and Kyrie. Heck he was basically an assistant coach on GSW while KD was there (his official role was a special advisor or something).

    Ultimately coach's don't make that much of a difference. He's going to let his stars play.. and I think he'll be good in the locker room. Guys like LeVert/Harris/etc will love him.
    True. Team Canada GM role is basically as a recruiter, which is a much different skill set. On paper, it would seem that Nash would probably be better off in a role where he's closer to game action making decisions in the heat of the battle. But everybody said the exact same things about Jason Kidd. Kerr is the exception, not the rule, btw.

    This could be an inspired hire or it could be an un-mitigated disaster. Respect to the Nets for the ballsy move.
