    The Raptors could use a bar room brawler.

    Yea he seems like he's better passing, is quicker and is a better defender than Buycks.

    He might be able to get some minutes with his defence.

    Great info find on the Lillard connections. I had read that he grew up in the same area (Oakland) but did not realize that DL had such regard for Cherry.

    Overall, is a better fit than Buycks, as Dwight was a volume scorer and Cherry possess more of a true PG type of game.

    He also fought adversity well and his bulldog mentality fits well on the roster.

    Everything Will Cherry

    Let's get excited about the 15th man on our dept chart, because eh, it's summer.

    Bio information
    He stands at 6''1' and has a 6''4' wingspan.
    He weights in at 184.
    It was his birthday on august the 2nd, he now is 23 years old.
    He is known for his bulldog approach to the game (sounds like another PG I know).

    He got into legal trouble once, from what appears to be more of a drunken behavior than anything else.

    A pair of University of Montana basketball players were arrested after allegedly being involved in a fight in front of Stockman's Bar in downtown Missoula early Saturday.

    Missoula Police say senior Will Cherry, 22, and sophomore Keron DeShields, 20 were involved in an altercation with Jason Snyder, 34, at around 2 a.m. Saturday.

    Authorities say Cherry was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest while DeShields was also arrested for disorderly conduct. Snyder was also arrested for disorderly conduct, possession of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

    Cherry and DeShields both posted bond and were released from the Missoula County Detention Center before 9:30 a.m. Saturday, and were spotted at the Griz-Cat track meet to support runner and fellow basketball player Jake Wiley.

    He was a stud in high school, as of Wikipedia :

    Cherry's team won the state tournament, winning against forever rival Damien Lillard.

    He was a tremendous leader and a clutch performer during their title run :

    College Carreer
    He was injured in his senior year, which marked an overall decrease in his efficiency posting his lowest eFG% and a TS% of ,524%. He is a good play-maker, had an AST% rate of 26% in his senior year, his highest. He is a good defender, posting Dratings of 91,91,90,98 (injured senior year).

    He then went undrafted and struggled in his team NCAA lost to Syracuse vs Carter-Williams.

    He posted an higher FG% than in college, near 45%, and also posted his best 3PT% at 33%. He averaged 4,5 AST a game for 1,9 TO and showcased intelligent play-making, not playing out of control. Nothing really stands out there, but he never was a walking highlight reel.

    Relationship with Damien Lillard
    Being from the same area and playing in the same conference, they faced each other quite a lot.
