Forget all about any reports you read coming out of Europe about Giorgos Printezis.

There are no plans at the moment to have him as much as come to training camp let alone any kind of contract offer.

And talking to people who actually saw him in person at the European Final Four, he’s years and years and years away from being able to play at the NBA level.

Oh yeah, the trade.

What’s it mean for the rest of the Raptors bigs?

Bryan made it very clear yesterday – and you know he’d have spoken to Jay about this – that Kris Humphries and Reggie Evans are going to fight it out to be the first big off the bench behind Bosh and Bargnani. I have no idea who’d win that fight, I presume Evans because he’s a better rebounder and tougher post defender.

Bryan also suggested that they’d keep Patrick O’Bryant because he’s intriguing but I figure he’s a 12th, 13th, maybe 14th guy on the roster.

The GM didn’t say it out loud but every indication is – as it’s been since the day after the season ended – that there is no room for The Legend, which is something I’m quite fine with. The trouble? Toronto’s still smallish off the bench with its bigs.if it’s Evans and Hump, which is why I’m hearing they remain entirely interested in Rasho.

The Legend is an awful nickname.

I still don't see how one of our bigs won't be traded. my money is on humphries. this roster is way too imbalanced right now.

Years and years away from being ready? Isn't he in his mid-twenties as is? Maybe he'll pull a Jorge for us and do the late-twenties rookie thing.

For all those posters who wanted Printezis here, what did the NBA personnel people say about Printezis whan they scouted European Final Four:

"he’s years and years and years away from being able to play at the NBA level."


Haven't we learned with the Ukic experiment, its time get NBA veterans who are ready to contribute NOW!!

basing your opinion on one game is a great idea.
