Default Raptors Digest: Seems Like Weems Is Still Flying Under The Radar

If Weems was our own 2008 2nd round draft pick Toronto would be abuzz about the possibility of having athletes like DeRozan, Amir Johnson and Sonny Weems on the floor at the same time. Instead Sonny Weems is still going under the radar. As mentioned in our previous article on Weems, he is going to be a source of toughness, scoring and D. Weems will be hard pressed to find floor time this season, but we here at Raptors Digest see the same thing that resident trade guru Bryan Colangelo has seen in Weems; an ultra-athletic slashing swing-man who has the tools to become a starter in the NBA.

Now while he does boast these tools he will need, one way or another, opportunity to develop those skills on the NBA level (as he has already dominated the D-League averaging 20+ ppg, 4.5 rpg and 3.0 apg). Luckily for Weems he is a good, toolsy defender and this will allow him to see time at the 3 as well as the 2 for the Raptors.

For all Raptor fans who haven’t had a chance to do any research on new Raptor Sonny Weems, let me just say this, there will be some “oooohs” and “aaaaahs”.

Check out Slam Dunk Champion Sonny Weems:

If you are not the least bit excited about Weems’ potential, watch the video again!!

Nice nice, he can only do good things since noone really have expectations of him and I'd be delightfully surprised.

you hear them talking about weems as a highjumper and how he had a 6'9 highjump and would never show up to track practice

sounds like a lazy peckerhead, worth having on the bench though just in case he puts down the waterbong at some point

He'll be very hard pressed to get minutes unless there a few injuries at the SG position.

He's 6'6'' and is listed as a Guard/Forward. Can he play some SF?

I don't know much about this kid, which means I need to find some footage of him and not some highlight reel.

In a nutshell... your prototypical hyper athlete who has 0 basketball skills and is dumb as a rock. Like a poor man's Joey.

I wouldn't expect to see Weems much this year, lol

Well, if he's listed as a Guard/Forward, that would mean he plays the 2 and the 3.

No shit. But what i'm saying is has he played both positions in the NBA. Or has he been strictly a SG or is that based more on his College career?

6'6 200lbs doesn't seem big enough for an NBA SF?

highlights are nice...but there has been plenty of players that get by using their athleticism in college and doesn't materialize to anything in the nba. but since he was just a filler, anything he can add is a plus for the raptors.

What is a poor man's Joey?

Joey sucks hard...Weems has a job currently and for this season, & Joey doesn't, so who is the poor man?

We found our own James White, so if Derozan can't get into the dunk contest we can send weems.
