    Great to hear that Alabi is making some progress. Hopefully there is a season and we can see a 4 man rotation of Dre, Davis, Amir and Alabi and watch their development. If Alabi proves to be a player the Raptors have some solid assets going forward in the front court.

      I have been pulling for Solo 100% I hope he gets decent shot next season. Here is some footage of him in the D League. Gotta love the passion.

      The first dunk is routine and ordinary... Now that second dunk...... Sick, wicked and nasty!!! lol

          Besides, we don't know who are going to develop into good players. Jonas could play PF as well assuming he develops a jumper (which i doubt Alabi will do). With a lot of ifs in the development department ... a frontcourt with Alabi and Valanciunas would be downright scary with a combined wingspan of about 14'11''.
          Alabi was touted as having a decent midrange shot by coach Thorpe when he was interviewed by PHD steve earlier this season so maybe he could play up high and val could play low?

                One really good thing about the lockout and players signing in europe, in particular, lithuania, is that Jonas might get to bang with some NBA players before next year. Even if its for just a little bit, it would help the transition when he comes over.

                  It's not someone from the raptors and Bargnani/Davis were mentioned as being able to play the 5 spot. No talk about the PF.
                  Oh yeah, sorry.
                  But still, no mention of Amir.

                    I think Bargnani was hinting that he wanted the 4 spot, not the 5.

                        Keep in mind with the lockout we'll be lucky to have a season at all. If there ends up being more than 25ish games I guarantee you they'll sign someone. I'm sure they're high on him but i don't think they're that high.

                                I didn't know alabi had a knee injury I guess that explains alot. I still like the kid I just hope he is getting stronger much stronger than I seen in the d league.

                                If he can protect the rim like he should with his height and length, we don't need to go after a center. Get rim of our two point guards we need that D on the perimeter.
