Default Raptors Have Some Interest in Ike Diogu

I loved this kid in college. As shame his game hasn't translated over to the professional level yet.

Diogu told the Sacramento Bee that "about 10 teams" have shown interest in him, including Atlanta, New Orleans, Boston, Dallas, Charlotte, Toronto, Denver and Washington.

Sacramento still has $6 million in cap space and are believed to be looking for a front court player.

"I haven't had any conversations with them (since the offer was declined)," agent Thaddeus Foucher said. "With the way they finished up, I thought we could've got something done really quick, but obviously they went in a different direction and that's their prerogative. (But) if you look at the team and what they need, I think he'd be a perfect fit."

Diogu appears disappointed that the Kings haven't shown any interest in bringing him back.

"I was disappointed (the Kings declined the offer), because I felt that I handled myself extremely well in a very tough situation last year," he said. "I felt I could've helped the team a lot earlier than I was given the chance to, and I felt like they knew what they were getting."

He'll most likely end up in Sacramento or Washington. Ike was an absolute beast in college, guess he's just one of those guys.

I don't think he is that tall though I think the NBA lists him at 6'9" but I know he is much shorter I have seen him play players 6'9" and he's short I'd say 6'7"

Another Joey Graham??

Meh I'll pass We need a backup center more than a PF.

Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

I wouldn't mind if they go that route. He's not a proven guy, but they can afford to go after someone based more on potential at this point.

Who was playing with him? He was probably the first option on a team that was more interested in seeing their scrubs play than win. Oh - and they wanted ping pong balls.

But it does show that he has promise. It's just a matter of proving that he can be a good fit in a good, and realistic role.
