Default Colangelo Likely To Fill Out Roster With Undrafted Players

Don't get your hopes up guys, because like some of us have already mentioned BC will likely be filling the remainder of the roster with no name's that most if us haven't heard of before. We can forget about the Posey, Pietrus' and co. Ain't gonna happen.

Doug: When I talked to Bryan on Friday, it became clear the Raptors will be scouting heavily at every summer league trying to find a couple of young kids to fill out the roster. Maybe those two are on the horizon but I think they’d like to find at least one with some NBA, or at least professional, experience.

raps dont have enough money to bring players like posey or pietrus in. so i can understand why the raps will have to bring in undrafted players

If I'm not wrong, Garbo and Calde were undrafted.

Who knows.

Jefferson's a very good prospect too, i was shocked that he went undrafted, if he stayed at USC, with Derozan he probably would have been a first round pick next season...

Exactly .... that's what I'm hoping for at least. Keeping my fingers crossed that Mauricio and Bryan have some players in mind from overseas. Probably alot better talent than what the D-League or undrafted college players have to offer at least.

we had a few good guys last year in preseason if I remember correctly. I, for one, am excited.

Yeah you never really know. Great players are also brought in undrafted as well. And the guys we may be in may even be as good as a top 15 choicer.

I'm praying for that. If we can get a guy that can play some minutes I would be happy enough.

We don't have to forget about the Pietrus style players. We still have the mid level, yes?

It just means the 12 and maybe 11 bench spots are going to be undrafted rookies. Nothing to get excited or dissapointed about. Best case scenario they improve and become legitimate role players down the road. Worst case scenario they get cut halfway through the season and we replace them with other undrafted guys.
