Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA

Free agent forward Dominic McGuire has reached agreement on a deal with the Toronto Raptors, league sources tell Y! Sports.

I remember him, he used to play on the Wizards.I think he was just an energy guy from what I remember. Just a filler I would think

Good end of the bench guy. Anderson is a better player who can stay on the floor longer in terms of staying effective on the court. Mcguire is a really good defender and a pretty good rebounder though, but he's just as bad as Reggie Evans on offence.

Meh. Looking at his stats, he seems to be one of those players who does a little bit of everything but doesn't really excel at a certain area.

Last season: 3.5 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 1.7 APG, 0.7 SPG, 0.6 BPG in 17.6 minutes.

I like the stealing and blocking numbers though.

I just went over to RealGM, and saw two posts from Warrior fans offering insight. I am going to re-post them here.


Warriors fan (and Raps fan) here. McGuirre is effing AWESOME. He can guard 4 positions... last year we had him on guys like Deron and Rose at clutch moments. He's still very incapable offensively, but he's an incredible specialist defender. We were super disappointed at losing him, but we didn't have space on our roster to keep him. He was starting for us at the end, which isn't saying much, but we were playing him above guys like Dorell Wright and even Brandon Rush.

Casey is going to fall in love with him. I guess he's kind of like James Johnson though.

Warriors fan insight here:

Dude is a damn good defender. That's what he was here, a hustle player that was put into rotations to shut down players 1 on 1 defensively. Kinda sucks how much you guys are making him seem out to be a horrible player without reasoning. He does the things that don't show up on the stat sheets. I remember one game, against the Nets, it was tied.. Nets had the last possession, clock winding down, and we put Dom on Deron Williams.. and as Deron went for the kill, D-Mac blocked the hell out of his shot.

He's a role-player. He's not gonna score a bunch, but everything else he does will have noticeable impact if he is utilized right. I'll miss this guy. Wish we could have resigned him. Great great great defender for how much he's paid. Defender, rebounder, hustle player. Every team needs that guy.

So long, Jamal Magloire. We hardly knew ye.

MrClutch 09-09-2012 08:30 PM

i wonder if theres a trade going to happen soon

Nites 09-09-2012 08:52 PM

He's going to have an impact. That's all I will say.

2012 version of JYD?

CommunistCrunch 09-09-2012 09:19 PM

I think we got some great pieces to put us in position to win a title, honestly.

Beans 09-09-2012 09:24 PM

I'm not crazy about one dimensional players, but I kind of love the way Casey has a big vote on who is on the roster.

raptorsfan1000 09-09-2012 09:45 PM

hes guarding lebron melo kobe dwill drose .............

Kirby 09-09-2012 09:53 PM

Don't think he's fast enough to guard those dynamic PGs, but for sure those bulky SFs he may have a crack at.
