Default Jack > Parker?

Jack is eight years younger and has better ball handling skills. His 3p percentage is only 35%.

Parker is more experienced and he has better 3 p percentage. He can also take and make the last shot. But he is 34 years old.

Would you rather give 4 Y, 20 M to Jack or match Cleveland's offer and sign Parker for 2 Y, 6M?

I'd rather keep Parker. It is less risky and even if Jack plays well, the difference will not be sunstential. I suppose Parker wants to move thinking he may win a championship there but keeping him could be a better option IMO. I applauded signing Jack at first but now I'm thinking Parker was the better choice. But he may already have expressed BC that he wants to go.

ok lets say we do keep parker and he is a shooting gaurd right? how does the mins for demar gona look like cause then we would have delfino, parker, and demar not enough for demar to grow. parker is slightly better than jack but jack was on the pacers where he dint have much to work with i think it will be easier for him to play with the Raptors because of better bigs we have like bosh, bargs, etc

I think at this point in both player's careers, Jack is certainly more talented, a better passer, and ultimately a better player.

However, AP brings a lot of experience and leadership to the table. In his prime, I think he could have been better than Jack, but he is getting old and I just can't see him outperforming Jack this season.

We cant "match the offer" and "keep Parker". He is free agent and its his choise which team to go. BC wanted to keep him, but Cleveland looked a better option i guess.

What I expect of Jack is second coming of TJ Ford. A player who penetrates and scores or finds other players.

They're a lot different. Jack is going to provide the other fist in the one, two punch that was once the PG combo of TJ & Jose. The good thing about Jack is that he's big and tough enough to play minutes at the 2 without being a liability.

Sorry, my bad. I thought he was a restricted free agent. We could offer him 3 year, 10 M.

So is Barbosa and Ellis. Jack is a good defender, he's tough. He could play some minute there and be far more effective than Kapono ever was.

With the potential Jack signing people need to look at what Raptors teams had success and what Raptors teams did not:

2006-2007: The team had two healthy, happy starting PGs. They fed off each other, although rarely played together. When one was on the bench the other was on the court. This allowed for little drop off when the second unit hit the floor. They won 47 games this year and were credited for having a strong bench even though most of the guys were totally off the radar.

2007-2008: A rift formed between the PG duo. Both suffered injuries and they wanted to start, which messed with the chemistry. They still managed to hold it together enough to make the playoffs.

2008-2009: The duo was split up. The Raptors were left with two options off the bench at the point. The first guy had no business being in the league and the second guy was a project. The Raptors struggled with bench production all season, missed the playoffs landing in the lotto.

Parker could play point but he was not a PG. He was a backup precaution. Jack is a true PG, good enough to start who could play the SG sometimes with Jose. I don't know about you but I would much rather have a starting caliber PG playing a few minutes at the two to get adequate time than an old SG on a fast decline forced to play out of position against much faster, younger guards. It didn't work last year, it would not work this year.

You know Henry, I LOVE parker, but this point I have to argue. Parker routinely wilted under pressure down the stretch as a raptor. He missed a lot of important FT's, and thats not a good thing.

From day opne when they announced this, this is the one thing I was most pumped about.

I wanna make a post soon about Size and court presense. Toronto has a lot of good players with no presense, Jack had presense at the PG position, when he get to a spot on the floor, that becomes his spot, and if you want to limit penetration, this is an unspoken must. His polar opposite is Quincey Douby, you will NEVER win anything with guys like QD.

They're different players, that's true. AP is primarily a SG who can play some PG minutes. JJ is primarily a PG but can also be effective at the SG in limited minutes.

His toughness and defense, which are apparently two of his biggest attributes, will make the second unit very, very good. To be honest, with:

Jack/Derozan/Wright (one of the two, whoever doesn't start)/Evans/Rasho/Delfino(?)/Pops(?)

I really think we have one of the toughest benches in the league. We're no longer relying on POB, Douby, Ukic, Kapono, and Graham to play a lot of minutes. IMO, this will prove to be the biggest difference between this and last year's squads. Our starting 5 last year was pretty good already, even with an injured JO playing in the beginning. But, we were so thin on the bench, I think my middle school team would have given these guys a tough time.

Jack is a good shooter. He just doesn't take Parker's wide open 3s. He takes wild shots, just like Delfino sometimes.

this is one of the best stated posts on this whole issue... JJ will be a much loved player for this Raptors squad this year. he is versatile, young, can start at 2 positions and guard them both!! I love AP, but he is not able to play the defense required of a starting 2 at this point. he will be loved in Cleveland where he can come off the bench at both back court spots, but we needed a guy who can fill that role as a starter, we found one in JJ.

Jack is a good defender who gets to the rim, is younger and quicker.

Anthony Parker shot 39% from 3pt last season vs 35% from Jack. But that % was down for Parker and imo @ 34yrs it gonna go down some more. At their stages of their careers Jack is what we need.
