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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.
