Raptors Republic Android & iOS App

Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    So that would mean we proably will neever have more than 3 or 4 of our own guys down there, because that would leave just 11 or 12 available for the big squad.
    Basically yeah.

    Other benefit is a chance to closely see more fringe guys and hope to find a diamond in the rough, but until the D League salaries get more competitive then the player quality isn't going to be great.

    At the end of the day, it's all about developing the guys you have.

      Well then we better surround them with pass first team guys that set good picks. A bunch of poor mans amir johnsons and tony parker if u catch my drift. We don't need the typical d league iso/chuck team if we're developing three young guys.

        Spurs are the spurs. Hawks are the spurs of the east. And raptors are the spurs of the d league !

          If it turns Bruno and Bebe into Kawhi and Horford, lets do this!

            Good read on how it all came to be and why Masai was so cautious in confirmation.

              3 players are all that can be sent down at a time to the D-League.

                Going to guess Bruno, #20 and possibly Daniels.

                I think Bebe might get a chance as the back up 5.

                  Probably a rotation throughout the year.

                    Not with Casey coaching. Unless Bebe changes his age and comes into training camp about 30 years old.

                      That's what I'm thinking. I also think they're gonna want #20 playing as an actual rookie this year in the NBA. I could see Bebe getting a few stints down there. There's always the possibility of a 2nd rounder this year who may be added as well.

                      Here's a question cause I don't know: Does the D-League fly at all? I thought they bused it everywhere but I'm not sure. Also too lazy to do a simple google search... And who fills out the rest of the roster if they're not part of the Raps?

                      • We don't have to sign Daniels. Let him sign with D-league team and keep the roster spot open.
                        All man. All amazing.

                          Free agents. Some are D League lifers, some undrafted kids. Either way its still a plus because as someone said earlier, you can find good diamonds in the rough sifting through there. Maybe top out as 8th or 9th guys in an NBA rotation, but you need those guys too,

                          • Probably a good thing for Canadian hoops if they use their D-League team to give sure jobs to Canadian ballers who aren't good enough for the big show.

                              From the article: Correct me if I am wrong but I am still not certain its a done deal by the description above. The Raptors may have secured a D-League team but it doesn't mean the D-League is going to allow it to start right away next season or am I reading it wrong?!

                              • Yeah a little bit. It's more like the Raptors sped up the process by taking over the Mississauga Power's management infrastructure. Basically all the old mgmt needs to is bump up the salaries and vendor prices, put up some new signs and they're ready to go. The Raptors will take care of the players, coaching and travel plans.

                                I assume the thinking was that if they were already able to host poorly attended NBL games at the Hershey Center there's no reason to doubt they're ability to host poorly attended D-League games. (just a joke, I think there's a chance they do well at the gates)
