Default Rumour: Raptors Considering Petway

Take it for what it's worth, but this member at the RealGM is apparently legit and his sources are fairly accurate.

That being said, outside of Petway's ability to come up with some insane dunks and his nickname "Air Georgia", I really don't know much about him. But if BC can't re-sign Pops for whatever reason, it sounds like Bryan will consider signing Petway.

It would probably be a league minimum, partially guaranteed contract. Petway, known as 'Air Georgia' has played a Jamario Moon type of 3/4 role, bringing energy, taking charges, and trying to dunk on every opposing player, every game.

Lock this if you must, but the source is a good one.

Petway couldn't be further from a "Jamario Moon role" if he's actually trying to dunk.

Either way, Petway should be an interesting project. He's got more aggression in his left nut than Jamario has in his whole body, so he could turn out to be an effective guy.

Anyone else find it weird that Petway is a high flyer and ferocious shot blocker, but his rebounding totals are low?

Rebounding doesn't come just from jumping high. Jumping and being able to catch the ball is only half way there.

The other half is boxing out, see where the ball is coming from, and know where it's going to fall after.

It doesn't hurt to also be one of those big guys who makes their money down low.

The time it takes for a taller guy who's already under the basket to get the ball is a lot less than for a smaller SG/SF trying to jump over him.

Rebounding is opportunity, and opportunity is a function of where you are, at what time, and being able to take advantage of what's available.
