So it did not ease my worry any today when I read the 76ers have agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent forward Donyell Marshall. Philly needs some outside shooting and Marshall fits that role for sure.


All Raptors fans know the damage he can do from the corner. All Raptors fans also know that it seems to be the former Raps that always come back and bite us in the ass.

Playing for the Raptors against the Sixers on April 13, 2005, Marshall tied a league record by hitting 12 three-pointers. I really hope that does not happen again but the other way around. The way the Raps cover the perimeter, I am not holding my breath.

Donyell was a good player and great guy for the Raptors as I remember him and I wish him luck but only when the Sixers are playing everyone but Toronto.

Donyell is washed-up. The Raptors shouldn't be worried about him.

If the Raptors are worried about Donyel they're in big trouble.They don't care about Donyel Marshall,they're more worried about Philly as a team (Iggy,Brand,Smith).

Nobody is afraid of Jason Smith.

I'm surprised Donyell got signed, he cant even shoot anymore, hes basically their darrick martin.

Yea why would the Raps be scared of Marshall he will probably get no floor time and if he does it will only be garbage minutes

jason smith is out for the year - the main backup at pf will be young. Marshall is beyond done, he'll be their maceo baston this season.

Young is going to start, unless you meant that hes gonna move over to PF when they go small, then my bad.

Donyell is not the player we know anymore ... nothing to worry about him. If Philly is good enough to make the playoff, that would not impact Raptors at all: they are not good enough to get ahead of Raptors, Philly probably will lose first round against Boston or Detroit :)

Toronto doesn't have to worry about anyone in the NBA.

They have to worry about taking care of thier own business.

You go out and beat teams, you don't sit back, look at thr roster, and hope they lose.

Only media, and fans have this mindset.
