I will boo this guy every time he steps on to the court wearing our uniform. I've never been faced with disliking my team because of a player before.

JV/Amir/Acy/Psycho T is a front line other teams won't enjoy playing against.

It looks like a good fit to me.

I wonder about the contract, but it should be reasonable.

I hope we sign both him and Wright. Problem with that is Acy wouldn't play. Someone on Realgm speculated that Amir might be dealt if both are signed. I could see MU trading him, his value will likely never be higher.

It's the season of the goons in Toronto, and I'm glad the Raptors are on board!

I'd love the signing. Culture changer. He helped transform the Pacers from one of the softest teams to a tough one, and he'll help the Raptors as well.

Expect some fights this year if this happens. Where he goes, altercations follow. Having said that, he's likely to be popular here....light a dirty Bonner without the big shot.

I would say players like West/Hibbert/George have had a lot more to do with that than this scrub.

If this is true they may as well just bring back Jake Voskuhl and Aaron Williams while they are at it...

i'm definitely liking the idea of him coming off the bench! not sure if you guys followed him in college, but there's a lot more to his game than he's shown in the role he's been playing with the pacers. think hump and how his game evolved.

Hansbrough is the kind of player that you hate when he's on another team, but you love when he's on your team. I'm waiting for a Babockian "You will like him because of his tough (hockey-style) mentality" if this goes through.

We need depth, and Hansbrough is just that. Doesn't hurt to have an enforcer either.

I'll be interested in seeing what kind of contract it is, if he does sign.

I hate him.....hate. If we sign him INSTEAD of Wright then this offseason looks worse then it did yesterday.
