Which former Raptors will thrive with their new teams

Looking at the long list of former Raptors, which ones will thrive in their new roles on their new teams? And in turn, who will struggle?

Kapono (76ers)
Marion (Mavs)
Humphries (Mavs)
Jawai (Mavs)
AP (Cavs)
Moon (Cavs)
Ukic (Bucks)
Delfino (Bucks)

Vince Carter

Okay, all jokes aside, I'm feeling AP. He could be helpful, especially for a team that has a lack of talented 2 guards.

Jawai and Hump will never see floor time. They get my vote for players that will struggle.

Would saying Sam Mitchell make me a bad person?

Marion.

Playing with another great pass-first PG in Kidd and he'll be free to clean up the glass with the other team paying attention to Dirk and Howard.

AP or Shawn Marion.
assuming AP is coming off the bench...and playing about 18-24 minutes a game i think he can be playing well the whole season and it'll save his legs

if the Mavs play an uptempo style and push the rock, Marion could look to have maybe 17 and 10 or close to what he had in PHX

Kapono, i think would have been better if they had kept andre miller. its almost a forgone conclusion that he will do better there than he did here, though that isnt saying much. i agree with marion thriving with the mavs. their window was closing rapidly and the addition of marion, they get one more oppurtunity; they should be hungry this year, realizing that this could very well be their last chance at a title run with the current makeup of their team.

Easily Marion. He will be an impact player right off the bat and will be feeling it playing in Dallas. He has plenty of fuel left in the tank.

i think AP will do well. i've always thought he had a decent game.. him coming off the bench will do wonders for the cavs. they've lacked depth on the bench last year anyway so it'll be a great chance for him.

AP for 3.

He'll get alot of open looks with LeBron/Shaq/Williams on the floor.

Definately Parker. He will win a well-deserved championship ring. I wanted BC to trade Parker to the Cavs for a long time so he could win a championship.

Rubbish, the guy had a great PG that found him open ALL THE TIME.

He had a serious case of gunshyness/ inability to get a shot off with any type of defensive pressure on him.

100% has to be Marion.
he gets to play in a fast paced Dallas system where he'll get to run alongside a pass first PG in Kidd who will get him the ball (and wont be afraid to throw risky lobs to him).
he wont be the man, he'll be a third/fourth option and will have no responsibilities except for running the floor, collecting rebounds, and being athletic.
dallas is one of the few teams that is a great fit for Marion.

If Redd goes down to injury again would that mean the Delfino would be one of their top options on offense? That would be a scary site. They would possibly be worse then New jersey if that happened.
