Default Magloire worth a look for Raps

Quote:
The Raptors are looking for toughness, an area GM Bryan Colangelo admitted needs addressing when he talked to the media at his season-in-review news conference.

Politics and personal baggage aside, Magloire can help the Raptors because the team is so thin up front.

Patrick O'Bryant is a seven-foot jump shooter on a team that takes too many jump shots.

Jake Voskuhl was a stop-gap on a team that lacked a veteran presence, and Kris Humphries broke a leg and probably many hearts because he has yet to find a level of consistency.

Magloire has not endeared himself to many in Canada, at least those involved with basketball.

He has always given his time and money to the community.

Now comes the moment of truth of whether the Raptors are willing to take a gamble on Magloire.

One of the NBA's unwritten rules of thumb is to avoid, if possible, signing players who live in that team's city.

There are too many headaches associated with such a reunion, but there are exceptions.

The Raptors should at least look at Magloire, whose stock isn't exactly high.

By no means is Magloire a priority in an off-season filled with far greater concerns.

But when the off-season moves are made and the need for a veteran post player who will rebound, defend, bring an edge off the bench and won't demand touches remains, why not consider Magloire?

I understand that people are upset with the guy for dissing the National team program for so long. I have no idea what his motivations are there.
I played against him in high school and had a nice conversation with him once. He seemed to be a pretty cool guy and I think he gets a bit of a bad rap.
Physically he's not the player who was an all-star in New Orleans, but like the article states, he'll rebound and not require any touches. He could also bring some grit and toughness, where as the current group has been completely unwilling to do so.

Sweet Cheez Whiz. Zicarelli is brutal. I'm still scarred from seeing Magloire continue to do his no-look dunk thing. His name should not ever be uttered. This shit makes Feschuk's worst crimes look measly. Stop - you snivelling idiot!

It depends on the price tag and his mental state.

Jake can just walk away. And so can Magloire. There's no need for either side to trade garbage.

Screw Maglorie if you want to talk Joel Anthony I will listen. This is like the same old story like ever 6 months or a year goes by and some idiot suggests that J Maglorie should be a Raptor. Screw him. He never plays for this country and he has zero interest in playing here or he would have already. He is a washed up has been that had one good all star season when he was a big in the East that lacked quality bigs. Enough. Anthony on the other hand is interesting and should be a restricted free agent I believe.

Who cares about what he has and what he hasn't done for Basketball Canada. If he's going to accept a reduced role at a very reduced salary and not complain, I'd welcome Magloire on this team.

What if they're willing to talk Jason Kapono?

To get rid of his Jason Krapono's contract, I'd trade him in a heartbeat.

Damn him.
