D. Smith: Jack is more then okay with his new role with Toronto

Quote:
My man Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star got in touch with Jarrett Jack late last night for this story that says the dealís done and it seems Iíll have a news conference to attend tomorrow.

I donít think anyoneís the least bit surprised that Indiana isnít going to match the offer, there are some financial issues at play with the Pacers that made it a virtual impossibility for them to pony up that kind of cash for Jack.

This was a pretty good move by Bryan Colangelo, no question. M. Grange ô and I were discussing this while pretending to be baseball writers on Sunday night and itís the kind of relatively quiet signing that could have a major impact on how the team does next season.

Jackís big, tough, and Ė according to everyone Iíve talked to in Indy and Vegas last week Ė more than okay with the role thatís laid out for him here.

Heíll back up Jose, play some two, not complain and work hard.

-

Whatís left?

Well, according to everyone I talked to last week, Carlos Delfino and Rasho remain very much in play and I have a feeling that both situations Ė or at least both roster spots Ė will be taken care of in the next week.


And then what are we going to do? Loaf all of August? Sounds good to me.

Nice. Also, if we are gonna get Delfino it better not be for 5 mil. 3-4 mil at the most.

If Bosh is good for 20 million, Delfino is good for 5.

There is, Jack was signed with the MLE, we own Delfino's Bird Rights-2 separate entities altogether.

we need delfino in our line-up. you can say what you want about him but everyone has to admit that hes an excellent rebounder at the 2 guard. with marion gone and Bargs at the middle delfiino can do wonders for our rebounding.

+1

Plus we have his bird rights, and BC's been talking about him for months. He'll be back and he adds even more depth to the wing position. I just watched Raptors game in an hour on RapsTV and it was from the season Delfino played for us and i enjoyed watching him, he's very active/agressive. Good asset to have.

Stop the man love for Chuk-fino, he does not fit on this team.
The Raptors should just pass him on in a s&t for new boots for the dancers.
He is just a flashy scrub.

But without him this season, our bench depth was close to shit.
There was no real 6th man.
