Default Rasho joining the Raps?

Quote:
One name you’re not going to hear for at least five or six weeks, though, is Rasho Nesterovic.

The big fella’s back in Toronto but he’s still under contract to the Indiana Pacers until July 1 and no one connected with the Raptors dare speak his name publicly lest tampering issues develop.

But, trust me on this, he’s very much in the mix.

I think I remember him saying somewhere that they do. I could be very wrong though.

Awesome news. Solid player, even better guy to have in the locker room. Definitely a guy you want to have in there as a calming presence.

double c from RealGM

I remember playing ball with this dude down on the Esplanade court and he told me that he and his son were in a Rabba on Front street and Rasho was grabbing some grub. Little kid went over and said hi and Rasho gave him $20 to buy some candy. That was a pretty classy move.

Can we say good bye Patrick O'Obryant. I would like to see Pops & Rasho as the first bigs off the bench. If Rasho does come back, what pecking order or rating would give the bench big men:

1. Rasho
2. Pops
3. Hump
4. O'Bryant

love to have him back. but then i think we'd have to let go one of our bigs (bosh, bargs, humphs, pops, o'bryant - that's 5 there) to save a bit of cap in there. we need rasho back for his veteran presence.

I love Rasho as much as the next guy, but did you guys see him play this season? The dude looks done. Even that little jumper of his isn't so reliable anymore. I suppose i wouldn't mind him for the vets min. since he's a good guy to have around the locker room, but in terms of basketball ability i'd rather have POB.

This was obvious especially since his family lived here and for how much praise he had for Toronto. Welcome back home buddy

I'd rather have O'Bryant. Some of you are so sure on Pops coming back. I wouldn't bet the farm on it.

i'd be happy with rasho, guy's solid from the bench
and if pops doesn't come back then we go for POB, but POB should not be on the top of the list if rasho and pops is there
