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.

    But given the sudden depletion of the roster, you'd think some playing time would be on the table.

      That's the drawback with the Raptors having too much, so-called depth. The buyout guys want guaranteed PT as a top priority since they're playing for their next contract. Teams like Detroit, Philly, Pacers have obvious spots they can fill.
      And yet Cleveland and golden state had no problem with end of bench guys signing the last 4 years..the "ring chasers"

      I guess those teams were guaranteed finalists whereas we're in an absolute dogfight
      It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

        Yeah but you can't get starting minutes in Toronto. You can in Indiana and Detroit.

          Ugh...

          Matthews and Ellington are the kind of players who would perfectly fit the Raptors system. Not good news.

          Hopefully the ones left and available would prefer the Raptors with aspirations for a title run vs. their playing time in preparation for their next contract.

          Masai stated that he would be aggressive in pursuing players from the BO, he is on clock.

              He can be as aggressive as he wants, players make their own choice and both of them went to non-contenders.
              Kawhi Leonard is a Toronto Raptor

                Same narrative (not you) but some stating that Masai will stand pat because trades may not be available. Next thing we know, he was more than just counting his gray hair in front of a mirror.

                Masai is not you and me, he has clout with some of these players. Its a matter of how aggressive he is convincing them to join the Raptors title run

                  Those ring chasers are usually pretty washed. Useful guys like Bellinelli and Ilyasova went to Philly for playing time last year and they got lots of it. It helped them both get multi-year contracts.

                    With Ellington out.. how about Sauce?

                    Only 34.4% from 3 this year, but shot 40% last year.

                    44.8% on wide open 3's.. and he'll get plenty of those opportunities on Toronto.

                      I'm a fan of Malcolm Miller. Loved what i saw from his last year. He would've been a rotation player this year if not for the injury. Glad that hes back and healthy.

                      As for the buy out market - there's not a lot out there. They need a big and a couple more shooters.

                        I also think they need a Point-Guard big time. Lowry and Freddy can be brittle and if we lose one of them to injury we're in trouble.

                        Should go get Teodosic

                          Sure to play the cj miles 11th guy role..but I'd prefer basketball players over specialists. Hes a glorified Brady heslip

                            Lots of slim pickings now for shooters.

                            Lots of nice bigs though: Kanter, Gortat, Lopez, ZBO.

                              Robyn Lopez or Marcin Gortat - 3rd big, savvy and reliable when one of the bigs goes down

                              Markieff Moris - back up PF (risk due to history but heard hes a good friend of Kyle), has a decent stroke from outside who can stretch the floor. He can be the bad guy for a contender.

                              Omri Casspi - another scorer (36% career beyond 22 ft)

                              Wayne Ellington - dead eye shooter, Raptors are desperate to have one

                              Courtney Lee - another scorer and had played with Marc in the past

                              Jeremy Lin or Ben Mclemore - both can play the PG or SG position
                              None of those guys really interests me.

                              Lee is an inconstent shooter.

                              Casspi is a terrible shooter. McLemore is meh. Morris from i've heard suffered a spinal injury or somethi g.

                              The Hawks the other day said that they're not waiving anynof their veteran players.

                              So there's not a lot of options.

                                Yep. You need 1 extra PG and 1 extra big in case of injury. A combo guard and 4/5 who can rebound would be nice, in addition to the proverbial 3-pt gunslinger.
