Take it for what its worth, but I don't see him fixing our problems.

If its only minimal what we give up for him, then great. At least he can actually back up Parker unlike the other options.

He may not be the athletic two guard we want, but he'll keep a lot of teams honest. I don't know if he drives all that well but hell, it would give us the option of moving Parker to the 3 potentially.

Dont forget that being around Bargs would be good not for Bargs but for him as well.

Marco is pretty good at driving the ball and playing off screens and most importantly, he is not afraid to shoot it.

He really could play much more like a Rudy Fernadez than not. Just needs to grow a pair as large as Rudy's, he definately has the tools.

But I am sure Sam will give him equal opportunity to rot on the bench with Joey and Hump.

That couldnt hurt on a team where everyone on the bench is scared to shoot.

I definitely wouldn't say that he's a stupid chucker like Louis Williams.

This guy has game, as Snooch said similarly to Rudy Fernandez he has some nice moves, is athletic, lights out shooter but can also drive to the whole. He's a crafty scorer and I'm pretty sure he has a pretty decent handle of the ball. In any case it would be a huge upgrade over what we have now, although I'm not too sure about his defensive prowess. Still, in the right system he could flourish like so many players have...I say bring him over.

If he was THAT good, he'd be getting more burn in GS.

I dunno Hoops, sometimes coaches just don't like players and it seems that Nelson isn't really a fan of his.

Only people like Rob Babcock are dumb enough to trade with in the Division to a rival.

As for another Italy product coming to the Raptors. I am not a big fan of it. The Raptors need to sit back and wait to get the right guy. I do not think he is the right guy. Just my take and I think Raptors end up in rumours all the time cause Colangelo is an active G.M so people take shots and making logical guess and based on the track record of Bryan being active they hope they are right.

Yeah...I didn't say I would trade for them, but I would love a player of their ilk off the bench which is what someone said Belinelli was.

seriously, belinelli hasn't done shit to warrant the attention he gets from raptor fans. since he was drafted to this day people have wanted him here because he's italian. there isn't honestly any other other reason because he doesn't get enough burn to be assessed.

Partly true, I have wanted Beli for quite some time now, but not because he's Itallian, but because he has very good fundamentals, moves well without the ball, shoots well, moves the ball well, plays hard, is smart and can be an absolute sparkplug off the bench.

He would be well served to learn from AP for a season or 2.

and all this comes from all the golden state games you watch so you can see him play five minutes a night, if at all?

i honestly see no point in getting excited over these players. take a flyer on them, sure why not, but for all the attention this kid gathers just seems dumb to me.

Actually it was from watching him in the 06 Fiba's and a little when he played in Italy

If that's what Colangelo has in plan to fix this team he might as well bite a lemon, stuck a dildo in his ass and jump around the ACC. Our junk at SG&SF isn't working out so let's try some other junk?

However, I do think this is made up. The only reasoning is we already have one Italian. Sounds like that Vescey dude from NY. Blah.
