  • Don't sign anyone

    With Nash gone I think the Raps should avoid signing any other big free agent. This team is not ready to compete, we have four rookies coming to play for us (assuming we sign the second rounders) and no idea how any of them are going to turn out. Let's figure out what we have before we start overspending on middle of the road free agents.

    Let Fields be the big pick up this year, he fits the roster and Casey's vision, so great, let's just sit tight. Give Bayless a chance to start, his numbers are as good as anyone's and most teams that are successful have a point who scores the ball anyway.

        We tried a quick fix...didn't happen. Let's just go back to the basics of what we are trying to do as a team and remember that the biggest signing in our recent history was Casey

          I agree with giving Bayless a chance. But I would like to pick up Ramon Sessions because between Bayless and *shudder* Calderon there is bound to be someone break down. If you must move forward with Calderon it is just because he is an expiring contract at the deadline.

          Better yet BC BE BOLD and amnesty Calderon sign Sessions or Brookes... even knowing that Calderon will get picked up somewhere and be among the league leaders in ASST. who cares if your system finally works because you are able to defend at the point of attack.

          Use a hungry D-LEAGUE kid as a 3rd string.

              Colangelo's fighting for an extension. There's no way he takes the patient approach to team building.

                  From the looks of it, a lot of Raptors fans have been deluded by our consistent mediocrity.

                      Not only is Fields the big pick up but he is suddenly a forward, no less. That's the the big pick up moving forward.

                        No, the cap space is pretty much "use it or lose it." When you factor in salary esculation, rookie deals and contract extensions the Raptors will never have this kind of cap space again unless they blow it up and start over. They need to spend to the cap number now. Unless you're planning on being a major player in FA there is no benefit to being under cap. When the Raptors are ready to do something they're far better off being closer to tax than slightly below cap at that point.

                        Basically they won't have this opportunity to buy assets again. They need to act now and get an impact guy or they blown an opportunity.
