    Only last week didn't Doug say that the end of July is when he expected all moves to be completed and anything else would probably take place during the season?

      Doug Smith knows as much about whether the Raptors will do a meaningful deal between now and the beginning of the 10-11 season as the "The Raptor" does.

      In fact Smith may know even less about the subject


      Position: Mascot/Fan Exciter
      Height: 5’9” (he looks much bigger on TV)
      Weight: 165 lbs. of pure solid fur!
      Age: 65,000,009
      NBA Experience: 9 Years
      High School: Jurassic High
      College: University of Dinosaurus
      Offseason Home: Toronto, and maybe a few golf courses!!
      Acquired: Only living Raptor left, so it was a natural fit!
      Career Transactions: Once a Raptor, Always a Raptor!
      Contract Status: I’m here for life and loving every minute of it!

      Career Highlights:
      Over the past nine seasons, the Raptor has made more than 3,500 appearances all over Toronto, Canada, and North America. The Raptor has even performed in Europe in such places as England, Belgium and Holland. In fact, The Raptor has been the only mascot invited back not twice but four times to the Holland Basketball Week Tournament!

      Other Little Tidbits:
      # Has a .989 successful dunking percentage, that’s pretty good!!!
      # Named Rookie Mascot of the Year in 1996
      # Attended NBA All-Star Game in 1997
      # Has signed 46, 271 autographs (his hand is pretty sore!)
      # Starred in a NIKE Fun Police commercial
      # Has eaten 93 pounds of popcorn and not one kernel got stuck in his teeth!
      # Single-handedly helped the Toronto Raptors win their first-ever playoff series (well, he was in the building so that’s pretty close!)
      # Voted most popular mascot in the NBA (Three years and running , by the way!)

        This guy is Mr. Obvious. Of course more deals are to come, we have four PGs on the roster, one of whom we already tried to trade once.

          I count one pure PG Calderon

          Jack is a combo guard

          Banks is a useless PG

          Babosa is like Weems. Both can handle the ball but neither is good enough to play the Point Guard position

            ... and Weems is a horrible passer - so will not see one minute of point guard duty.

              What evidence do you have for Weems being a bad passer? I think he can get some pretty decent looks for others.
              It's about money

                It hard to say if he is good or bad, since he rarely ever passes the ball

                  If Smith is 100% certain that there is more deals to come ... we should print up the programs for next year.

                    Weems can be a good alley-oop fisher. His passing is good enough because he doesn't't need to be a flashy passer to be good passer. And Banks is NOT a shitty point guard. He is just overpaid for the minutes he gets.

                      Anyone with half a brain can make that statement after looking at the current Raptor roster. Not mention that Jose was traded away only to have the trade not go through plus BC wants to move Bargnani back to his natural position of PF so a center is a must unless BC is just going to roll with his PF line up as is. Banks is solid as a back up pg (I would keep him) and actually plays very good defense.

                      BC needs to trade Bargnani, Jose for some quality veteran talent to place around the YG'z.

                        I think our biggest trade chip is Bargs. BC needs to stop holding on to a player who likes to sit around the 3 point area. The same way we like to change a player's position is how we should treat Bargs. He should only be allowed to shoot 3s at certain times. Fuck he's 7 foot for God's sakes.
