Default Donyell Marshall Joins Sixers, Will He Burn The Raptors?

Local Raptor blogger Cuzoogle asks the question " Donyell Marshall joins Sixers, will he burn Raptors?"

So it did not ease my worry any today when I read the 76ers have agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent forward Donyell Marshall. Philly needs some outside shooting and Marshall fits that role for sure.

All Raptors fans know the damage he can do from the corner. All Raptors fans also know that it seems to be the former Raps that always come back and bite us in the ass.

Playing for the Raptors against the Sixers on April 13, 2005, Marshall tied a league record by hitting 12 three-pointers. I really hope that does not happen again but the other way around. The way the Raps cover the perimeter, I am not holding my breath.

Donyell was a good player and great guy for the Raptors as I remember him and I wish him luck but only when the Sixers are playing everyone but Toronto.
