    His numbers are awful mostly from his first stint. He's been very good lately. Looking just at the games since that DET game he's been much more consistent from the field and from 3, and always brings energy on defence even if his attention to detail and experience obviously still has a ways to go.

    I think both will be ready for backup minutes next year after we likely lose Bismack and possibly trade Ross in a package for a star PF.
    Yes, Powell will fit nicely as either JJ's replacement or, if Ross isn't there, a backup SG. And Bebe will be a solid 4th big.

    Would be nice to have two cheap pieces in the rotation: a second round pick and a guy who was a throw in for the corpse of John Salmons....

      I think of the four rooks, Powell has managed to gain Casey's trust. He's even eating into some of JJ's minutes so you gotta give him the win

        Maybe Kyle sits tonight or on Sunday...and we get to see some more Delon Wright in non garbage time minutes....If he can put together another good outing like he did last time out maybe he can challenge Powell for internal Raps ROY honours.

          Powell looks to be a fixture in the lineup now, as the new jj. Probably even when Carroll is back he will see 10th man minutes. Wright will not become part of the rotation this year so even if he scores 20 in a filling in game he won't qualify
          It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

            Another 20 minute night for Norman.... Wonder if he can stretch the playoff rotation to 10 guys instead of 9.
            Figure we see
            Colour Coded..

            Playing for sure
            Playing maybe
            On the bench with a good view and playing if an injury occurs


            Bigs: JV .. Biz .. Scola...PPat...Thompson Bebe
            Wings... DD... Carroll....Ross ...Norman..JJ
            PG's... Kyle ... CoJo

              So this got bumped up because I have to rush out to buy a couple of bottles of French's Ketchup to go with the crow I have to eat on the preseason final standings predictions...

              So heres what we all thought a scant 7 months ago.

              Accepting Drinks
              ===> Demographic Shift (So looking for Powell to lead the charge as a contributor followed by Wright and Bebe)
              ===> McHappy (Norm. As soon as a guard or wing gets injured he is going to get his chance and make the absolute most of it.)
              ===> Snootch (So powell.)
              ==> distorsun (Why do you assume that Powell is not ready? Defense translates well in the NBA, I think if he gets in the line-up, it'll be hard to to get him out. He plays hard on D and doesn'T hold the offense hostage.Don't forget we still have a lot of horrible defenders and lost one of our best (Amir)...so contribution on the D end would be very welcomed.)

              Buying Drinks
              ===> Dan H (Wright. If one of CoJo or Lowry gets hurt, he's getting significant minutes. Every other position has a bunch of vets that can fill in.)
              ===> BonusJonas (Bebe/Wright)
              ===> prs1 ( How about there will be no significant contributions by Raptors rookies? To contribute you need playing time and DC is not known for giving rookies minutes.
              ==> Primer (My guess was between Bebe and Wright but I went with Bebe)
              ===> JWash (Powell, Bruno and Bebe are not gonna get minutes. So Wright)
              ===> LetterN (I'm with Dan, the only player that might get significant time would be Wright)
              ===> Chr1s1anL (Wright)
              ==> Mack11 (#55)
              ==>DogeLover1234 (That leaves Wright and Bebe as the most likely candidates.)
              ==> Arsenalist (I'll go with Bebe.)
              ==> S.R. (Wright is the most likely to get the most minutes..)
              ==>CalgaryRapsFan (My vote would be for Wright)
              ==> LJ2 (My vote would be for Delon.)
              ==> ceez (Wright)
              ==>Skywalkerac (Smart money is on Wright with his feel for the game and Casey's penchant for playing guards.)
              ==>Planetmars (Gonna go with Wright. )
              ==>Day One (you kind of have to go with bebe here, based on teams needs and positional playing time available.)
              Think with Norman averaging 20 mins a game for the past couple of weeks this thread retires.
              Anyone want to compile the preseason picks thread on who gets cold drinks and whose buying them.
