RealGm: Raptors serious about bringing over Printezis

Quote:
Greek papers are reporting that the Raptors are serious about bringing over combo forward Georgios Printezis this season if buyout details with Olympiacos can be worked out.

This is according to papers in Greece, so who knows. But i'm guessing he'll be here in training camp.

I'm hoping for a more athletic Jorge. I know, this may be classified as high hopes.

The expectations aren't super high, anything he contributes is a bonus.

If it is true, BC is messing this team up. Stop with these experiments, and get some proven NBA talent. I know it will cost 1 to 3 million for Printezis, but we had a roster full of these guys (Will Solomon, Maceo Baston, Nathan Jawai, Patrick O'Bryant, Jake Voskhul, Roko Ukic, Qunicy Douby) that gave minimal contributions. Instead of fillout the roster with 5-6 guys making 1-3 million, why not give the mid-level to some player in free agency. Just like Orlando gave Pietrus the mid-level last summer. I wonder how that worked out for them? There is a reason why the Raptors had the worst bench production last year. BC has devoted over 10 million to scrub players, and another 10 million to players like Kapono & Banks. That's over 20 million per year for 15 points a game.

I don't think signing/bringing over Printezis automatically means they can't use the MLE on someone this summer.

And Printezis is a better player than any of those guys.

Signing Printezis & Delfino will. Don't forget they also want to bring Rasho. Instead of bringing Printezis & Delfino, why not throw some cash to restricted free agents like Childress or Kleiza. Use the cap money more wisely. Instead of buying 2 cars (Hyundai Accent and Kia Spectra), lets get one Civic SI.

Childress was being offered the MLE here last year and didn't take it. So, why would he take it this year? ANd I wouldn't drop that kind of money on Kleiza. He's not that good. For the people that rag on Kapono for him getting the MLE a few years ago, those same people will be pulling out their hair if Kleiza gets that to come here.

Kleiza does things that Kapono doesn't do. He ain't no one trick pony. He plays defense, gets to the rim, rebounds the ball, and adds toughness to the team. Think of a more consistent Delfino who shoots a much higher percentage and gives you double digit scoring.

Childress is being paid 6 million to play another continent. He will accept the mid-level to play in North America.

Childress is getting paid 6 million after taxes. Which is a huge upgrade from coming to Toronto, getting paid 5 million, and then throwing some good old Canadian taxes on it. He would practically make twice what he makes here if he stays in Greece.

Nice. I would like this signing. We can see how he plays. If he can bring what Garbo brought or even just the defence I will be happy. He was a late 2nd rounder so I woun't expect miracles
