if i remember correctly, teams can sign players to 2 10 day contracts before they have to sign him for the remainder of the season or let him loose, so Raptors should be able to give him 1 more 10 day before deciding, maybe barbosa will be back and we can just let him go

This is true, players can be signed to 2 ten-day contracts, and then if a team wishes to retain their rights, they must sign them for the rest of the season, or just let them go.

In the original "we signed gaines" thread, I said he would probably be given a second 10 day, and with the injury to Barbosa, I would assume so even more now. He's been decent for us, for a guy who's just getting used to the system and his teammates.
