Toronto could formalize its signing on Tuesday, when opening the market for free agents. It may also formalize the continuity of itself Calderon.

In the page of the source they talked about Delfino that he might be heading to Europe just because Toronto didn't want to keep it??

roko averaged 13 pts and 3 assits per game last year
but the thing in europe is that an assist is only counted when the person you pass it to makes a lay-up or dunk
before Calderon came to the NBA he averaged about 4 assists pergame

not really.

it's actually a good rule.

Stats are killing pro sports.

Passing the ball to a guy on a basic rotation and getting an assist because he jacks it up aint cool.

Anyhow, not that you can get tis from one video, but;

1. Roko is long and fast, I like that in the PG spot.

2. He has nice agressive confidence.

3. Has a real bad tendancy to pick up the ball on the spin move and in the NBA, that will get old.

4. His out let passes on the break were absolutely wicked.

Played some decent Defence on ford on one play.

What can any of us say, get him here and lets see what the Raptor version of Carlo Coliacovo can do. (carlo is the Maple leaf d-man that was touted as the next Bobby Orr by rabid fans before he ever even played a shift).
