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.

        Guys, we covered this a while ago when the signing was first reported. Camp invite, nothing more. We invited 4 guys last year, none of them made the team.

          Did any of those guys have any guaranteed money?

            Can't find anything in BI, but BBref has Roberts 75K, Toupane, Kyser and Scott 25K each.
            If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

              Or it's possible that Masai suspects that CoJo or Wright will be needed for a PF trade (based on his trade talks thus far ) and wants to ensure that he has someone within the organization to move into the roster spot.

                This is a great point. Cojo has already come up in rumours.

                    Or maybe he has a deal lined up for JV and wants to run 5 point guards out there. Neither are the case, and certainly this move points to neither. A guy slipped past the draft that they like and would like to have on the 905. If a spot opens up, sure, that opens up an opportunity for him. But this signing does not even remotely suggest that such an opening will be created soon.

                    Guys, we had 4 signings exactly like this one last season and not a single one of them made the roster, and at the time of their signings there was actually a roster spot available. Trying to find meaning in this in terms of potential roster moves is a fool's game.

                      Not nearly as foolish as telling people what they should bother talking about or not.

                      Maybe Masai has no intentions of VanFleet past the summer but maybe he's seen the trade demands and is stacking PG first because he foresees a deal that might cost us CoJo or Wright and wants to have a replacement within the organization for quick back fill.

                      VanFleet was one of the more intriguing undrafted players due to some interesting projections. Masai obviously made him somewhat of a priority over other guys at this stage.

                        Honestly; I was hoping from the get go of his Summer League team invite that he'd at least get a Camp Invite. I look forward to watching him play on the 905.

                        It's also pretty noticeable in this case as he actually did down offers teams gave him in regards to being drafted in the second round. If I can find the article in regards to it; I'll repost it here.

                          Guarantee is 50k, right in line with last year's guarantees.

                          Axel, you are free to discuss it all you like, just as I am free to discuss it with you and point out that any conclusions reached based on this signing are likely in error, just as they would have been last year in the exact same scenario.

                            From what ive heard a lot of guys late in tge draft would rather go undrafted and have more control over where they end up and their contract status.

                              The guys on 905 last yr were kinda depth pieces but also more athletic flier types. When they got berry and singler and now vanvleet they are more like depth pieces with a specific skill, Iq and all round game with less upside. That seems more like an insurance policy. You buy insurance even tho u may never use it. Like they probably won't make a trade but if they did trade Ross and a point guard then I could see how singler and vanvleet would fit, short term.
                              I could also see Fred being a better fit than delon.

                                Oh good, you do understand that. Hard to tell since your contributions to this thread thus far have been telling everyone it was decided a while ago that he was a camp invite and nothing to discuss and mocking anything people have said. Since you seem to have made up your mind, perhaps you can allow others to still indulge in conversation.
