Default Jim Kelly: "We have a situation coming up"

Hmmm .... call me crazy, but doesn't this sound like a trade is on the horizon?

Quote:
Neither the Raptors or Trail Blazers, however, have used their Stampede option this season.

But Kelly hinted the Raptors could assign a player to the Stampede soon, with a possible candidate being Nathan Jawai. The 6-foot-10, 280-pound rookie from Australia is under contract with the Raptors through next season, but Jawai has yet to play for Toronto after concerns were raised in September when he took a routine heart screen, according to a team press release.

"We have a situation coming up where we could very well could be going in that direction in the near future with a player," said Kelly, who has been with the Raptors since the organization started. "Right now we only have 13 on our roster so that is a little bit precarious, and then we have our own (salary) cap situation that we have to manage too. ... But we are definitely not adverse to using the D-League, especially when we are involved with a good program.

"Could very well could?"

I hope it means that we are gonna have more players on the roster than allowed(JO in a 3 for 1) but I think it means we are gonna call someone up.

Yes, he now works for the Raptors organization. Didn't you hear?

Incase you weren't trying to be funny, Jim Kelly is the Senior Director of player personnel for the Raptors.

No wonder the Raps are doing bad, their hiring former football QB's to basketball front office positions

Don't worry I know this is a different J Kelly

What is a Senior Director of player personnel? is it like being the press secretary for the white house

Actually that would be Jack McCloskey.

Thought he'd found himself another Laimbeer.

Least it is not Jim Kelly that hockey puck that goes on Prime Time Sports and tries to pretend to know what he is talking about when it comes to the Raptors. Stick to hockey if you are a hockey puck that is what it says every time he opens his mouth talking about the Raptors.
