triano needs to utilize his bench more like pops. each player has their own strengths and weaknesses and he needs to learn them.

Wasn't this guy a "straight outta high school" player? I remember hearing how he was supposed to be really good back when he was drafted. Guess it didn't work out.

Hard to tell if you're joking or not, but the Raps have been dressing only 8 guys on most nights for some time and one of them is Alabi (who for all intents and purposes is a glorified pylon at this point) and another is a guy on a 10 day, so what exactly does he have at his disposal?

Sorry guys, but jeff is wrong - 15 roster spots is 15 roster spots.

Unless the Raptors apply for and receive a medical exemption, the can't sign Johnson and keep Gaines.

My guess is they needed someone to play last night and since Johnson wouldn't be here in time for the game they resigned Gaines. Once Johnson is in the fold, they'll simply cut Gaines.

Don't know what trey johnson is, sounds like another chucker.

Gaines is a keeper, perfect 3rd string pg.

You are a very smart man Acie

From D.Smith's blog

Okay, this isn’t going to mean anything to some of you but it does to some insiders.

Bryan Colangelo spent about $40,000 Monday night so (a) he wouldn’t embarrass his coaching staff and roster and (b) to give fans something close to their money’s worth.

How?

By signing Sundiata Gaines to what may amount to a one-day contract.

Early in the afternoon, there were plans to sign Trey Johnson to a 10-day contract. He’s the kid who’s leading the D League in scoring (which means very little) but they can sure use a backup 2-3 here.

And then Jose got sick.

Now, Bryan could have gone ahead with his commitment to Johnson and let Jay send out a team in front of the home fans with Jerryd Bayless as the starting point guard and Julian Wright or DeMar DeRozan, pick your poison, as the backup.

He couldn’t in all good conscience do that so they got a hold of Gaines, who hadn’t left town yet, gave him 10 more days (worth about $40,000 with his experience) and he’ll likely be waived today or tomorrow to make room for Johnson. Gaines gets paid in full, regardless, the Raptors get the wing they need to plug a huge hole and the bottom line’s a tiny bit off.

Not a big thing, no, but something.

even when we had a healthy bench Jay has his head up his ass and will either leave players out there way to long or pull the plug on a player in 1 minute.

The Toronto Raptors signed guard Trey Johnson to a 10-day contract Wednesday and released Sundiata Gaines early from his deal to make room on the roster.

The six-foot-five, 215-pound Johnson is the leading scorer in the D-League, averaging 25.8 points in 26 games for the Bakersfield Jam.

He is also averaging 4.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists while shooting 51 per cent from the field.

A product of Jackson State in Mississippi, Johnson played four games with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2008-09 and in October attended training camp with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Gaines was signed to a second 10-day contract Monday after appearing in six games with the Raptors, averaging 5.8 points, 1.8 assists and 15 minutes.
