Gaines signed to a second 10-day contract
 
Does anyone know if Gaines is getting re signed or are we letting him go

Alex 01-23-2011 06:18 PM

Probably letting him go. Too many guards on this team.

Admiral 01-23-2011 06:23 PM

too many guards? half of them are injured and he plays PG where there's really only 2 other ones

if i remember correctly, teams can sign players to 2 10 day contracts before they have to sign him for the remainder of the season or let him loose, so raptors should be able to give him 1 more 10 day before deciding, maybe barbosa will be back and we can just let him go

box92 01-23-2011 06:59 PM

i heard barbosa might be out for a week or so

RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 01-23-2011 07:01 PM

I would guess they would bring him back for another 10days. But haven't seen any reports about him let.

Raptor-Colts 01-23-2011 07:43 PM

I think he is staying for another 10-20 days because we need all the healthy bodies we can get.

Alex 01-23-2011 08:48 PM

HEALTHY all we got are guards and PFs. No true centers and SFs.

js12 01-23-2011 09:12 PM

With everyone hurting, it would be dumb to let him go.

box92 01-23-2011 09:27 PM

would it make more sense to get a sf, seeing how kleiza and weems are both injured?

EggsToTheBBQ 01-23-2011 10:04 PM

Julian Wright's a SF, and a pretty good one too. Between him Weems and Kleiza I'd keep him around long term, if I had a choice. If he can start hitting open looks with consistency he's an almost ideal role player at the SF position. That's not to say I'd be comfortable with JW getting 35+ minutes a game, unless he shows some drastic improvement.

DeRozan can also play some SF, though it will be an mismatch if the other team has a Teyshaun or Odom, for example.

Every now and again Amir can match up with a SF, too. I'd be comfortable with Amir guarding guys like Odom, Teyshaun, Hedo, etc.

Gaines is probably less useful to BC than an open roster spot as the trade deadline approaches. Also, BC is probably happy with the players that are healthy getting more minutes, especially guys like Wright, DeRozan, Bayless, Bargnani and Ed Davis.

ye but i think we need to sign him to alteast a 10 day if not someone else, cuz our team is hurt like crazy right now

This is true, players can be signed to 2 ten-day contracts, and then if a team wishes to retain their rights, they must sign them for the rest of the season, or just let them go.

In the original "we signed gaines" thread, I said he would probably be given a second 10 day, and with the injury to Barbosa, I would assume so even more now. He's been decent for us, for a guy who's just getting used to the system and his teammates.

Too many.......3 is too many? And other then Derozan which guard is 100% healthy right now?

box92 01-24-2011 12:41 AM

ye our only 2 really is derozan right now since barbosa is injured, unless you get bayless to take time in the 2 spot

DonMughal 01-24-2011 01:02 AM

Lindsay Hunter get errrrr done. Right now.

TooStrong 01-24-2011 04:49 AM

I want him here!

Alex 01-24-2011 11:01 AM

Jose, Jerryd, Leandro, Weems, Derozan. Weems is not a SF.

box92 01-24-2011 12:39 PM

leandro and weems are both injured, and weems can play at the 3 spot

LilRomeo 01-24-2011 04:01 PM

My friend that works for Sportsnet told me that BC haven't made a decision yet on re-signing Gaines because he expects a trade coming in aside from Ajinca.

box92 01-24-2011 04:10 PM

oh ok, but they arent signing him right now anyways cuz the raps just signed someone else on a 10 day contract.
