Reviewing Last Season's Moves

Given the results this year, if you had the chance to go back in time would you still do these moves?

1) Trading Kapono for Evans
2) Drafting DeMar at 9
3) Big S/T: Turkoglu, Wright and Devean George for Marion, Hump and Jawai
4) Signing Jarrett Jack with MLE
5) Trading George for Belinelli
6) Signing Rasho
7) Trading Delfino and Ukic for Johnson and Weems

My opinion:

1) Trading Kapono for Evans
Yes: We weren't going to use Kapono and Evans has a shorter contract
2) Drafting DeMar at 9
Yes: Sure there was Jennings, but I have hopes DeMar has a high potential to develop into an all-star calibre player
3) Big S/T: Turkoglu, Wright and Devean George for Marion, Hump and Jawai
No brainer: obviously not, we could have the likes of Ariza with the money spent on Turk. I was a huge fan of this deal at the time though.
4) Signing Jarrett Jack with MLE
Yes: Jack stepped up big this season and is worth his contract
5) Trading George for Belinelli
Yes: At least Beli had a nice stretch for us. I doubt George would have been used.
6) Signing Rasho
Why not? Didn't do us any bad.
7) Trading Delfino and Ukic for Johnson and Weems
Hell yeah! We got a consistent hustle player in Amir and Weems was one of the brightest stories of the year

thing with number 3 is, Marion didn't want to stay in Toronto that was pretty plain, you can't make a guy stay if he doesn't want to, plus I think marion implied that he wanted too much money

with Turk...yes it didn't work out, but I don't think Ariza would have signed here, plus it was a huge win for the morale of most ppl in Toronto in that we got THE BIG free agent of the summer...bad fit...but the fact that the biggest FA wanted to play in Toronto was a win, which this current summer many ppl feel Toronto is a dump again


we got money to spend on Jack becaues of the sign and trade

Wright is better than HUmp, and we needed a perimeter defender

The Best move ever by the Raptors GM BC, Weems + Johnson are going to be Excellent players for this team, give them a few years and they will be develop into "Stars"

Ukic + Delfino can go and shove it, because Weems + Johnson are 10 times the players you will ever be

Weems + Johnson Rock!!!

BC is the Man!

We didn't need jennings, looking back we were already fine with was considered the finest PG tandem in the game with jack and calderon, im still happy with that duo even today, just that defense is meh.

I've read froma rticles on this forum that BC offered the same amount of money to ariza and artest but they refused, therefore turkoglu.

everything else you said i agree completely

Isn't their contracts the same length?

Problem is we drafted Demar at 9 before we signed Jack. And Caldy showed in 08/09 that his quickness was gone, along with his defense.

Missing on Jennings was a serious mistake. Although, I think Demar has the potential to be a solid NBA starter. Jennings played playoff basket (w/ the aid of Bogut & Salmons) and the Raps would have too, if they took him.

The salt on our wound - where was our Euro bias? Where was Maurizio Gherardini? Jennings was playing in an obscure gym in our Assistant GM's backyard, and he missed it. Demar does look great on YouTube videos though.

Actually, you're right, sorry about that. I still would have done Evans for Kapono though
