isn't that what Kapono is for?
the diffrence is that the Magic know how to use him
if he were in TO would he be as productive?

and yes, I know he's a better defender
Pietrus does a lot more than shoot threes. Before he got hurt he was the starter and he played well in that role. Coutney Lee has turned out to be a very good player so I fail to see why its a knock on Pietrus if he's a half step behind him. Pietrus playing for the Raptors would be a big improvement over Kapono. All Kapono can do is shooter threes. Pietrus can hit threes but he can do far more than that, such as defend. its not about being a better defender, its about being a far better defender.
