The Defensive players are ebing brought in. But as a team they are not being held acountable.
Maybe Triano is just too nice of a guy.

Mid-range game? Sounds to me like a perfect fit for a team that lacks in this regard quite badly.

wow, I thought that they would bring back Gaines, as it seemed like they needed more help at the PG spot than they did at the 2. I actually liked what Gaines brought, but maybe this means that Jose and Bayless are getting healthier.

This may mean that Barbosa and Weems may still be out longer than suspected (What's up with Weems?). I wonder if they're also going to experiment with DD at the 3, because he's still going to get his minutes.

GAME CHANGER. I say 25 points in the d league is equal to about 10 points in the big boy league.

Apparently, Johnson is a combo guard, so he may be able to play the point in a pinch.

Are you serious?

I don't think any Dleague guy can average 10ppg in the NBA. J. Alexander averaging more than 20/10 there.

I only found a couple of unremarkable highlights on youtube.

I did find a short interview from a couple weeks ago:


He's well spoken, and he's saying the right things. He seems like a really level headed guy to me.

he was probably brought up because of the injuries on our team, who knows its only a 10 day contract anyways so it doesn't really matter

Wow.

30 jobs in the world?

Also, I didn't realize I needed GM qualifications to discuss the Raptors latest acquisition.

Do you know why D-league players are usually signed to 10 day contracts?

Because the team is banged up.... Not because they are amazing or gonna help win a championship...
