I swear this guy..

We signed Kleiza that summer.. and he had a fantastic first pre-season i remember... I remem him shooting lights out...and then got hurt during one of the last pre-season games i think...

And then everything went downhill from there...

I was never thrilled with this signing. And not that I dislike Linas. It just sorta encapsulates BC's main focus - look to guys to take on expanded offensive roles with a great relish. It's just a lousy way to build a team.

It would be stupid to do otherwise. Injury's held him back these past seasons, but few months ago in an interview he said he's healthy and ready to go. Training and playing with National team could be very effective for him to get back on track and get some confidence in himself. And since Linas is a warrior and a proffesional I have no doubts that he will prove everyone wrong and stick in the NBA. Just watch JV, Linas and DMO bring medals to Lithuania in that European Championship.

Linas leading scorer
JV leading rebouner and shot blocker with good fg%
and DMO a little bit of both (man I so wish we could get him somehow here in Toronto)

Doesn't the amnesty window end today? Or is it later.

I wonder, we haven't heard anything about this

No It ends on the 17th, I think If MU decides to amnesty LK, he will do it last moment. I bet right now he is trying to trade him

I really like LK, wanted him here in T.O. since his early Denver days and then went through excitement and surprised disappointment before he really got going here. However this guy is tough as they come and never backs down from anyone (love it when he laughs right in the opposing players faces). He's just a fearless player and I truly believe that many here forget that he is only 28 and will get healthy again.

Seriously, if he does show that he's healthy with his NT, he may be that stretch 4/ power 3 the team could really utilize. If for some reason he doesn't work out with what the Raps are doing, at the very least he's just showcased that he's healthy again making his value as a trade asset go up. If he doesn't stay healthy then he's still an expiring worth trading.

Amnestying Kleiza doesn't make sense at all unless the team is in pursuit of someone - which doesn't appear to be the case.

Besides, why mess with MU's slow, 1-2 year tank??

^I know for a fact that LK is a much better player than what he showed as a raptor (many in here do )
but there are very few who believes that he can stay healthy.

I was a huge fan of bringing him here. It's unfortunate he hasn't been able to stay healthy. I do believe he should be amnestied though.

couldn't care less what happens to him, he's kind of inherited the Bargs role as the player on the team that I've basically forgotten about and don't even care to see on the court taking minutes from other players

What I would like to see happen if he doesn't get amnestied:

Let him expire (last resort obviously); Deal with maybe KL or TR for something, If the team is near scrapped or wants to get a pick - deal LK for a longer contract and a pick (1st rounder preferably); Another possible option-dealing LK for a PG with or 2 years left on their contract.
