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.

    Everything Pascal Siakam

    Pascal deserves his own thread as well. For a 27th pick, it's incredible that we can basically pencil him in for significant production with the 2nd unit this year. He's one of the best open court rim runners in the league, has a motor that won't quit, and comes across as a first class teammate/young man. The big question is whether he can be an impact defender in just his 2nd season.

    He doesn't get enough talk.

    Workout video season begins. Pascal is the king of getting the fanbase hyped for improvment. Those pull up 3s look nice. His stroke looks more clean and fluid in this vid
    I was waiting for someone to post this. I don't really know how to do it on my phone. I think the pull-up has to be faster and harder. He's kind of walking into it, he has to sell the drive a bit better. The stroke looks good though, and obviously if he can continue to improve the handle that would be great.

    Touche. But Masai took that page out of Colangelo's book. All about the medium risk, high reward extensions.
    ya he also has shown that he likes to do the extention in the fall like he did with t Ross and jonas. so maybe we see him try to extend pascal in October. the t Ross extention was smart as we were able to move him for Ibaka

    Correct me if im wrong but i thought it was colangelo who gave derozen that extention? At the time everyone thought it was an overpay.

    Yep, that was Colangelo. It proved to be bad in its own way, as Colangelo gave him a player option and he ended up getting his big raise early.

    Masai is the master of these sorts of Contracts. Derozan extended for 4 years and $40M turned out to be an absolute steal; Jonas' extension turned out to worth it; FVV earned his extension; Norm perhaps not quite there but his contract also isn't absurd... I don't know what the number ends up being, but I expect we'll be pleased, based on Masai's track record.

    The only point in resigning this season is if you get a discount. He’s a restricted free agent next year. We’ll match any offer at that time.

    I’m hoping 5 years for 125M. Is that low balling?
    This is about what I'd be hoping to get him on. But mostly summer 2021 is where we will be tight for cap space, so if we can get that season at 25M, we can let the rest of the contract rise as much as it can to increase total money committed.

    So:

    27.17M
    25M
    27.17M
    29.34M
    31.51M (PO)

    That's 5/140M.

    Obviously lower is better, but I'd be pretty pleased with that sort of contract.

    Notice any similarities? And Pascal can already shoot. Yes they're roughly the same age unfortunately, but their third year seasons don't look so far apart and Pascal already has a good coach so maybe with that boost... MVP 2020-21 if not this upcoming season?!

    Am I missing something?! Pascal Siakam's wingspan is 2.22 meters, Giannis' is 2.21, but Giannis is 2.11 meters tall while Pascal is 2.06.

    Pascal is as hard a worker as Giannis if not an even harder worker. And while Giannis started playing basketball in 2007, Pascal only started in 2012... so Pascal's closed the gap from 5 years to 3! And he did everything he did last year as a number 2/3 option last year, not even the number one on the team! Here's to Pascal Ltd!!
    that's optimistic but Giannis transformed his body into a machine in the years that followed. I think Pascal doesn't have as much room to grow physically

    There are a lot of similarities. The one think about Giannis that stands out to me is his attitude. He came into the league with that mean/anger/I'm the best player swagger which drives him. Pascal is generally all smiles and good will towards all.

    That’s actually pretty cool. He’s trending the right way, we just don’t know what the ceiling is. Do you pay him based on this season or what he might be in the future? I would think somewhere in between.
