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?

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.

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 )

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.

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.

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!
