Raptors Raptors have interest in Flynn?

I would guess that if he's considering us we've had contact with him and have interest.


Quote:
Free-agent guard Jonny Flynn worked out with the Cavaliers on Monday and performed well for General Manager Chris Grant and coach Byron Scott, according to an NBA source. Flynn (6-0, 185) played in 29 games for Portland and Houston last season, averaging 4.5 points and 3.3 assists. He could serve as a backup point guard to Kyrie Irving, thought that slot also could be filled by Donald Sloan, who finished last season in that position. Sloan performed well in the Cavaliers' summer league game Monday, leading a fourth-quarter rally and finishing with 19 points on 5-for-8 shooting.

Flynn also is considering Chicago, Atlanta, Toronto and Orlando, according to an NBA source.

His rookie season was awesome and he's still young.
There is no way that one's talent will completely disappear during the early 20's
(He's only 23 at the moment, fyi)

If this is for a minimum amount of money and only the first year is guaranteed - why not?

Unfortunately, I am sure he is looking for a longer commitment.

If he can stay healthy, sure why not. But I think he will just get injured...

In other news - I have a nagging feeling that Howard will wind up a Laker very soon. Now, that'd be a scary ass team. Call 'em Huge Four.

No way. He hasn't earned it. Nobody will commit if he hasn't proved anything, unless it's the minimum I guess.

Indeed. Very bizarre for a player of his track record. As suggested above, if it's a minimum deal, why not? More than that, and I'm not interested. Though this may be moot if we are getting Lucas.

I like his game he could a nice guy to have as a backup. Would rather have flynn over Lucas any day of the week. Could see Flynn trying to go to a team that he could potentially start. The bulls who will have d rose injured. For most of the season

We should trade Jose+Davis+@ for Starting SF and get JL3 & Flynn.

Not expecting Top tier SFs like LBJ, KD, Melo, PP, etc..

Flynn would be a great complement to Lowry. I think he would be a very nice addition.

Flynn is likely looking for a team that will give him PT. As such, unless Toronto deal Calderon, I think Flynn goes elsewhere. But if Calderon is dealt, then the Raptors' odds improve and likely significantly.
