Raptors have interest in John Lucas III
 
Quote:

Chris Tomasson ‏@christomasson

In addition to Miami & Chicago, teams looking at free-agent point guard John Lucas III are Washington, Minnesota, Boston and Toronto
Thoughts?

Lucas III did well when Rose went down. Might be looking to be a primary backup rather than a third stringer.

If that's the case... Is there a Jose move coming?

DSWC 07-10-2012 03:28 PM

Clearly as a 3rd PG. I'd take him, I think I remember him playing well for Chicago, and didn't he have a big game against us?

He also fits with the high character personalities that BC likes - and he comes from a basketball family, where his dad works with "troubled" basketball players.

Isn't that the same guy who LeBron Jumped over???


I rather see them take a flyer on Johnny Flynn or Eric Bledsoe. To be honest,even Norris Cole.

Truthfully the third Point Guard on the Raptors should be Ben Uzoh. I'd like to think that Toronto got something out of his triple double performance on the last day of regular season,other than getting the #8 overall instead of
6th,essentially costing them Harrison Barnes or Damian Lillard (Yes I'm still bitter :crybaby:)

Boy this fanbase just loves it's loveable losers. lol

LX 07-10-2012 04:05 PM

I'd really like Jose as a backup, but ould love being able to trade Jose and pick this guy up. Overall it would be a better fit. He defends well and would not need big minutes or minutes at the end of games. And he can still start if needed. Really an ideal backup.

John Lucas the THIRD YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!:cooki e::cookie:

dfunkie1 07-10-2012 05:11 PM

i'd be hoping for someone with a little more size. having both our points at 6 feet or less is bad for match-ups. as a 3rd stringer, i'd welcome him with open arms.

Carlos Danger 07-10-2012 05:12 PM

Didn't realize JL3 was 30 years old.

dfunkie1 07-10-2012 05:13 PM

he's been fighting for a roster spot his whole career

Nites 07-10-2012 05:14 PM

I'd rather get John Lucas IIII

You have definitely got to get a library card and get out for some fresh air. The next tease offered by you will be that Raptors have signed Il Muggo to a 10 year extension for $200 million...:coolthumb:

(@ the right price of course!)

i dont understand why some of u guys are speculating that the raps are gona sign him and move caldy, it just says that they are interested thats it, pls stop this nonsense, im pretty sure that the raps are interested in D12 and other superstars too, maybe u guys wana start talking about possible trades involving Bargs and the rest of the team too!

box92 07-10-2012 11:01 PM

Torching the Raptors is no measure of talent, we are notoriously known for giving up career highs lol

story of the franchise lol. forget kobe, ben wallace had his career high against us a couple seasons back

LKeet6 07-11-2012 07:59 AM

he's a bit of a bad chucker.

IMO, there are very few players in the nba who should be chuckers, arguably zero! If you give someone the total green light on offense i think they'll end up hurting you as much as they help you. Tell them you want points off them, but they need to know what else they gotta do, fit in with the system.

Aamir 07-11-2012 08:10 AM

He would go to any of those other teams before us.

John Lucas's deal with the Raptors sees him get $1.5 million for two years, the second of which is a team option.

I like how the 2nd year is a team option. Apparently we're just waiting on James Johnson to do his physical with SAC and its official.

I've never seen a deal take 2 weeks to complete before. WTF is taking so long for the JJ trade to be finalized?

He was on a flight to SAC, but lit one up in the bathroom, and the flight got delayed.
