    Terrible game by JV !!!! It seems like his performance from Olympics is staying with the guy. It is very worrisome.
    Yeah? He was a little slow in the 2nd half, but he and Sully crushed the glass and he seemed fine (not great, but fine) defensively.

    It would be nice to see Raps give last roster spot to a guy that can really shoot from deep.

    Ps: anybody having problems uploading videos or it's just my laptop ?!

    Didn't realize he can play the position?!

    Plays very much like a SG imo although I know the PG position isn't what it used to be. But regardless I'd definitely rather give Bruno's roster spot to him.

    This will sound like a total overrate lol but Crawford reminds me of the kind of player the Spurs have in the rotation. Just a solid player that blends well n does what you ask of him. Doesn't mean he's some stud in the making but he seems like a reliable player that you can count on to contribute in some way.

    I like Crawford. Just seems like a really solid player. My only gripe would be that we have 3 SGs already and Crawford is 6'5 so he'll be pretty undersized for the position. I still hope we can move Ross to improve the roster. I would see what Bebe, Wright + Ross and possibly a pick could net us for a SF not saying they would but I'd at least try with MIL for Middleton considering their logjam of SF/PFs and need for a PG & SG?!
    Trading for a guy who's currently out for 6 months doesn't seem very likely.

    So I am convinced that Drew Crawford has to make the roster. Dude is a straight up baller. I know it's a small sample size but hear me out. He fits this team to a tee. He'd even cover DeLon as the 3rd pg while he's recovering from injury. I'm intrigued with the possible line up combinations. I get the fact that he would be the 15th man...but I would bet the farm that he would make an impact.

    Van fleet can ball, certainly worthy for the last roster spot,Crawford can be a "Demarre Carroll light", but another guy that also impressed in the summer league is Singler, will get a chance to showcase his skills probably in the next game or two,he's not just a long range shooter -even with his skinny frame- he can defend/hustle.
    Heslip can take over that spot if he shows he can play some 1 on top of his deadly shooting.

    I really liked what I saw from Crawford last night. With carrol's injury history we are pretty thin on the wing, and Crawford is the kind of guy you can plug in as a stop gap. He's a solid defender, a smart offensive player and he plays with energy and toughness. I would sign him over vanvleet. I heard Norm was working on his point skills. Is that true?

    I was just repeating what I was quoting. January is a bit riskier, but not by a huge amount with the ability to sign guys up from the 905 (wait, is that a thing?).

    Also, if we sign Van Fleet but cut him when Delon is back, do we lose his 905 rights or could he simply drop down after making a few NBA bucks? That would be a great way to reward a couple of our 905 guys with a salary they can actually live on, drawing some attention to Mississauga as a place where you get a shot.
    We don't lose his 905 rights, as far as we have them now. He can drop down. Whether he wants to or not, who knows.

    Maybe we just go guard-heavy rather than PG-heavy. Crawford looked the best of the bunch last night. He was playing the 3 at times but he strikes me as an all-around guy that can D-up.

    Plus, it's not like the season starts tomorrow. If Delon is legit back in November, there's negligible risk going into the first few games with something like Lowry/Cojo/Crawford.

    Bottomline, just sign the best guy. You can always cut & sign if disaster strikes.

    We need a 3rd PG. From what i've read, Wright is out till Nov.

    What if Lowry or Joseph goes down with an injury? who's going to be the backup?

    And VanVleet is a better player(much better player) than any of the guys they invited anyways.

    Is it possible to cut Bruno and send him to 905?Do you think any other team will pick him up or do we keep him as trade filler.
    You can't send Bruno to 905 if we cut him. He can sign with 905 tho.
