Dwane Casey didn’t listen to all the negativity when he signed on with the Raptors last off-season and having been here the better part of a full season, he now feels comfortable telling any would-be Toronto-bound players to follow his lead.

“All the stuff people say about free agency with Toronto being another country and you’ll have tax problems , all that is crap,” Casey said. “I’m telling you right now. This city is one of the finest cities. It’s a top five city in North America. It’s not even close and I’ve been in all of them. For any free agent who doesn’t think this is a special situation, they are sadly mistaken.”

Casey said he found this out first hand over the past year and wants to make sure everyone else knows it.

“If a player wants to come in here and make his brand and that’s what the NBA is all about, (he should do it),” Casey said. “Each player building their brand, their niche the in league, you can do it right here in Toronto, Canada. This is a special place, a great organization. You are going to get the media coverage too. We only won just 23 games and look at this coverage. Each player is dying for that coverage and they can get that right here in Toronto.”

Casey knows GM Bryan Colangelo is somewhere in the neighbourhood of $12-million under the salary cap and looking to add.

“Our recruiting hat is going to be on this summer with free agency,” Casey said. “Bryan is one of the best. He has done it before. When he first got here he turned this program around and I have all the confidence that he and Ed (Stefanski) and the rest of the staff will do it again.

Don’t hold your breath on the Raptors using the amnesty clause this season.

Certainly where Jose Calderon is concerned, you can pretty much forget about it.

Calderon, who has a year left and 10.561-million on his contract has been speculated in the past as a potential amnesty target.

The amnesty clause was included in the NBA collective bargaining agreement signed in December and allows teams a one-time only opportunity to get out from under their worst contracts.

The Knicks did it with Chauncey Billups and the Orlando Magic did it with the Gilbert Arenas deal. Toronto could use it to free up more cap space, but Colangelo sounds very reluctant to use it at all and even more reluctant to use it on Calderon’s final year.

“There is no promise or assurance there and I’d say based on the progress of Jose Calderon — he’s the one that everyone targets as that potential amnesty piece — I can share with you that there is tremendous value on this team for Jose Calderon within the coaching staff, within the management team, within the locker room,” Colangelo said. “All of our post-season meetings with the players led us to a clear conclusion that there’s a few leaders in that locker room and one of them is Jose Calderon. The players have a tremendous amount of respect for him.”
