Question Dear Bryan Colangelo: Glen Davis Should Be a Raptor

Originally Posted by Michael Malcolm via T.O. Sports
So, in recent days, the Raptors have been transformed into a team with numerous questions to a team with a deeper bench and a core that is being formed as we speak. Yet, we are missing one person: Glen Davis

I know that Reggie Evans is a our tough player, our “enforcer,” but he’s getting older (29), and with two years left on his contract, I think getting Davis would be a good acquisition.

Davis has the swagger, toughness, and the character to succeed in the NBA. I watched him hit tough shot after tough shot against Orlando this year, and he showed the ability to agitate his opponents. And he plays defense.

I realize that the Raptors do not have an overwhelming need for Davis; however, you’ve always been ahead of the curve, thinking years and players ahead (as your recent acquisitions would indicate). So, I thought I’d give you a suggestion on a player that would quickly become a fan favorite in Toronto.

The numbers should not be too hard to work out. I think a three-year, $10 million contract would suffice, and the lineup and bench would be much improved with Davis as the sixth or seventh man.

This is just an idea, and while I am not your biggest fan, I do respect and value the moves you have made when all has seemed grim.

Please continue to build a winner in Toronto, and if we so happen to make it to the NBA Finals, I will consider repurchasing my season tickets despite the recession.

Respectfully yours,

Micheal Malcolm

three-year, $10 million? They don't have any exceptions left that would allow them to offer that much... ROFL

Davis is undersized and does not bring a swagger. He's a jump shooter now and is not as tough as the article says. Without KG's influence, Big Baby is soft and with Bosh's influence it can get worse.

The man is tough, remember that gamewinner he got and he pushed that old lady in Orlando?

Glen Davis is the next Corliss Williamson. We don't need an undersized powerforward, we need an defensive minded wing player.

I think it was a 13-year old. Check the replay. Jokes nonetheless.

at this idea. We don't need more bigs. With Rasho coming back in we definatly don't need anymore bigs. And at this moment we have 3 roster spaces open. 1 for Jack, 1 for rasho and 1 for Delfino. That's it then the only ways to change up this team is through trades
