  • Kelly: The Raptors, Andrew Wiggins, and the long term plan

    Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I felt it deserved its own thread.

    It's an interesting--if speculative--look into what our plans are for the long term.

    Ujiri has a 5 year deal correct? Isn't that too far to look into Wiggins. Doesn't he have to show some results before that?

      Never too early to consider scenarios.

      And really, if this team is good for the next couple of years, the board would be beyond stupid not to re-up Ujiri for awhile. I could easily see him still being around come 2021.

          Yeah, I'm definitely constantly nervous about any decision they might make...but in this case, it would have to be the easiest one they've ever made, right? Even they couldn't fuck it up, right? Please?

            Ujiri is the most loved GM in Toronto sports, they'd be stupid not to re-him

                I would imagine Wiggins is not the singular end goal, but one of many markers on our future path.

                Summer 2015: target Gasol (then contingency A, contingency B, etc); send TRoss to camp with Hakeem Olajuwon
                Summer 2016: target Durant (contingency A, contingency B); send Bebe to camp with Hakeem Olajuwon
                Summer 2017: first Finals appearance; send Bruno to camp with Hakeem Olajuwon
                Summer 2018: bribe Wiggins to take his qualifying offer with throwback Raptors jerseys and promise to name a neighbourhood after him
                Summer 2019: sign unrestricted free agent Andrew Wiggins
                Summer 2020: championship number one; send Wiggins to camp with Hakeem Olajuwon

                        I'd rather send TRoss to Reggie Miller/Ray Allen/Rip Hamilton camp so he can at least be effective if he's scared to drive to the hole, rather than laying eggs on the 3 point area.

                          Who knows when wiggins becomes an unrestricted free agent, there's gonna be a new CBA before his rookie deal is up, & the players are not backing down this time. The rules might change, 7 years is a freaken long time before you can make a decision about your career.

                            If Raptors can convert the NYK-Denver lottery pick they might package a trade, shorten the 7 years to before he's an RFA.

                              Enjoyed the article and the insight it provided into MU's mind. A man with a plan.

                              On a side note, glad to see Wiggins starting to blossom and show up the naysayers. A lot of people eating their words right now, not the least of them some major sports media outlets.
