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.

    On the other had we keep hearing about all these other trmeams getting better because their youth is developing ,... and the Raptors don’t get mentioned in those talks. Did we not have one of the youngest teams in the playoffs???

    Yes we don’t have the prospects (or hype) of Phili or Boston, but come’on we have pretty interesting young pieces that were in year 1 of playing a big role.
    Exactly. Delon is the perfect example. Even though he is a bit older and he has been in the league for 3 years he's only played big consistent minutes this year. And this was all of their first playoffs with consistent minutes. And he showed so much improvement over the year with his 3 point shot. I expect all of our young guys to come back better next season. Hopefully one or two of them take a bigger leap than expected.
    I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

    • I wouldn't mind clearing the space needed to get a guy like Tyreke evans. Imagine Reke, Norm, Miles Siakam in the rotation.

              A 28M$ a year third option....not seeing it. For that kind of investment he has to play a lot of minutes..if not for the Raps for someone else.
              Nobody would be interested in having DeRozan as anything more than a 3rd option.

              His salary is what it is. He wouldn't be the first highly paid third option in the league, and in any case it doesn't matter, giving him shots just because his salary is high is stupid.

                seems like a bad look for the pelicans if this guy was keen to go.

                  But, Demar as a third option is pretty tough to do. He needs the ball in his hands to be effective. He doesn't move well without it and can't really shoot it from deep even if he does.
                  New coach got work to do.

                    It really is a bad look. Low profile, career grinder type assistants, like Finch, don't get paid that much so I'm sure the Raps would have offered a pay increase and possibly a lead assistant title. That might mean a lot to these guys.

                      • Sorry to clarify, usually assistants negotiate that out clause in their contracts.

                          They allowed him to interview for head coaching jobs though. Stein reported that he got permission to interview for the Suns and Hornets head coaching job.

                              So basically the Pels ownership are cheap SOBs. They don't want their assistants to even get into discussions with another team for a lateral move because they're afraid he'll come back and negotiate a salary increase or extension and raise the bar. But going from assistant to coach is a tangible leap and huge increase, so they have no choice but to be okay with it. Seems a bit insecure and draconian to not even let him interview, IMO.

                              • I could be completely off here, but I wonder if the denial was from Gentry himself since Finch is his staff....and how much of that denial had to do with Casey getting fired for what many of his colleagues would feel was for unjustified cause. Like are the Raptors going to get the cold shoulder or have they damaged their relationships with other teams to some degree?
