After the march of TJ Ford to the Pacers, the European player will have to fight to become a position as secondly he bases on the Canadian equipment, where he trusts initiating a success race. " Calderón is the first base, that is claro" , Ukic declared, that already was chosen in draft of the NBA in 2005 indeed by the Raptors. " I believe that I will enter in competition with some veteran player that is going to clock on and off to enter the rotation. At the moment I am 23 years old and I believe that the hour has arrived. I go step by step. When Calderón fichó by Raptors was in a situation like mía". Ukic was deluded with this new stage and said to feel hopeful to count on opportunities. " He would be contented if I end up playing 15 minutes by partido" , it added. The agreement between Ukic and the Raptors, that began to set more ago of a year, took shape in the last days finally but it could not be official until next the 9 of July, when the NBA allows the company/signature of contracts to the free agents. Ukic could agree that in Toronto with Jose Manuel Calderón, whom it has predicted to leave the concentration of the Selection in a trip lightning to sign his renovation. Next to them it could be Hassan Adams, a player drafteado by the Nets in 2006 that also will help in the basic positions and escorts in the equipment.

I would assume so, but the summer roster still hasn't been finalized yet.

I will likely be finalize this week because the start of summer league is in about a week.

What are you talking about he didn't even say any number. They told him he was playing 15 mins and he basically said "Okay, no problem". Of course he's not playing 40 mins. Hell he may never get a 25 min game this season.

Ukic is going to have to be at least serviceable, at best the raps will add a Roger Mason Jr. type, meaning Ukic most likely will be the closest thing to a true one, backing up Jose.

At least there won't be another point guard drama issue this year with Jose and the backup. Team players FTW!

I'm guessing less. Bosh, O'Neal and Bargnani are going to eat up a lot of minutes. Then you have guys like Humphries and Jawai fighting for table scraps; my guess is 26 mintues left over at the 4 and 5 combined and some of that can be eaten up but a couple of the 3's at times such as Jamario and Joey.

Yeah good point. I just wanted to see him play more seeing him as "Baby Shaq" and all. Looking forward to this year a lot.

But what if he ends up being Raps' 3rd PG and he only gets to play 5 minutes every 5th or 6th game?

yeah, but he's kind of stating the obvious here, of course he'll play 15 minutes or so, as long as he's the main backup, which he will be. At least initially.

i'd bank on him seeing minutes at the off-guard as well. if he's competent, 15 minutes backing-up jose, 10 eating up the lost of delfino.

That's why we have Hassan Adams and J-Kap.

Well the question is who he'll be backing up. Is it gonna be Jose at the PG position or AP at the SG position. Then you gotta see which player will play more: Jose or AP, my guess is Jose by about 5 minutes or so. So if Roko is backing up Jose, he'll probably play 12. If he's backing up AP he'll play around 18

i like the idea of knocking down parker's minutes. he slowed down a little last season, so if we can keep him around 25-30 minutes a game it would be best served for play-off time.

as for adams replacing delfino, it's a possibility. i just think that mitchell would like playing two ball handlers together, especially when you're not giving up size.

moon - 30 minutes
parker - 30 minutes
kapono - 20 minutes

that leaves 16 minutes for adams, graham, and roko to battle out (without considering Bargs getting some of that burn)
