If he was 'ready' for that next step (6th man say) then they wouldn't have brought in a guy like Jamison to play the 6th man. His offence is related to the personnel on the court.
Well i always say you wont know unless you give the player a chance to flourish. He cant flourish in L.A with their high expectations though. James Johnson was given a chance and although he was a knucklehead at times, he provided the Raptors with something when given the opportunity. Besides what do we have to lose in giving him a chance?

I would've brought in Jamison regardless, the man is playing on a veteran contract and wants that ring.
