Nope Kleiza should be gone, unless you like him better than James Johnson. I'd prefer James Johnson off the bench as a defensive presence, and deroza at SF and Lamb at sg, or if we draft an SF, well you know. It would be nice too to cut down on some euros, we have JV coming in anyway

I highly doubt we have a rookie or DD starting at SF next season.

What is wrong with you guys? Haven't you seen Linas playing while healthy? There is no way that Lamb would go to starting 5 on a regular basis this coming season. I watched Lamb in U-19 last summer, not so much this year, but if you say this kid is better than Kleiza at this moment then he must go into history books as the biggest progress maker in pro basketball in 1 year time.

No hard feelings, but Linas is not used to play in losing teams He played good in good teams (Lithuania NT, Denver). This season Raptors might become something close to a good team, so will Linas might start playing much better (sure he will)
LOL - at the end of video Linas dunks on a same guy that Carter jumped over the head in 2000 olympics

If Raptors have a smart staff, which they do, Kleiza will stay in Toronto for 2 more years at least

I think LKZ will be here next season barring a trade that obviously upgrades the roster.

But if we are looking in statistics Linas Kleiza is the fifth in the team.
And played more games than Andrea Bargnani (1 place) or Jerryd Bayless (3 place).
Also he missed pre-season games and was after one year without playing.

Not sure what statistic Kleiza was 5th in... Points per 36 minutes?

Meanwhile, he was 9th in WS/48, 11th in PER, 7th in TS% and eFG%, tied for 6th in TRB% (which is decent) and 13th in AST% (less assists than Bargnani and Amir Johnson, among others).

He's a good 5th forward, giving situational backup minutes at the PF and SF spots, and is serviceable as a backup, I suppose. Worth the less-than-average salary he makes, but by no means a primary piece on this team.
