Honestly, we could use a big, bulky dude on this squad who isn't afraid to throw some bows. Amir and Val get pushed around a lot by bigger bodies. I just hope it's cost effective, I won't be happy if it's more than 3.5 million per season.

Tyler Hansborough is my least favourite player in the league. He's a goddamned MMA fighter, not a basketball player. All he does is try to hurt other guys and it's a tragedy because the guys he's hurting are actually basketball players.

I will lose so much respect for this team if Hansborough is signed.

I think you're underselling him.

He is a serious hustle player and I like his hustle and energy he brings. Same sort of grit like Amir that brings, toughness and hustle. Pacers love him for that.

I do not like how he pushed Valanciunas this past season though... I think however it is a good signing.

Fuck grit, this guy straight up tries to hurt players on the floor. He has no tangible basketball skills whatsoever.

I love how unhappy Jeff is with all these new possible signings. Yuck? This is pretty nice. Here's a guy I hate when playing against. Imagine how many teams will hate playing against him if he's in Toronto. That can't be a bad thing. These are exactly the kind of bigs I want to see us going after, not Monroe, as long as we have Valančiūnas.

Have I mentioned how happy I am that Bryan is gone?

When they're on the floor together, he and Val would really get under the skin of opposing front courts. Like A LOT. Very curious about the terms.

My guess is we're using the bi-annual on him for a couple years. And trying to sign Wright using part of the MLE.

Lowry/Vet?/Stone
Derozan/Ross/Fields
Gay/Novak/Fields
Amir/Wright/Acy
JV/Hansborough/Gray


That doesn't seem that bad I suppose.

i have a feeling he's one of those players that you absolutely hate to go against but would love to play with. good old fashion Detroit basketball, even Jordon hated playing againt them. I would love it if the Raptors can be like them

Agree. I just hope it's for the bi-annual on a short term deal.

He did average 11/5 a couple years ago in just 21mpg. Still hate him.

But you wouldn't like Monroe on this team with JV? I agree with the rest, but it's not like GM is soft, unless you just mean trying to trade the farm for him...

I hate him too, but that makes him intriguing. He is a pest, and I think we could benefit from that. I can foresee him meshing well with Casey's philosophy and proving a good defensive addition to our second unit.

Just as long as the terms are reasonable, I would say go for it.
