Default Smith: Roko will be here next season

Hmmm .... so any deal that BC makes now for a back-up PG will likely only be a temporary fix. Also, this likely will pave the way for either Jose or Ford to be dealt too.

Things will definitely be interesting this off-season.

Roko is more of a combo guard and can play the 2. I wouldn't get rid of either Jose or TJ (should he come back healthy) unless we get some sort of sweetheart deal. Roko would probably be used as AP's replacment when AP's contract is up at the end of next season.

BC was quoted recently saying that Jose was going to be a Raptor for a long time... so either TJ is no longer in the plans which i doubt or Roko is going to be a 3rd string/combo guy...maybe to replace Parker? Can he play the two(if he learned to shoot?)

He's having a decent season so far, averaging 11.3 ppg on over 54% shooting (at least within the arc.. beyong the arc, it's 32.4%). You can check him out HERE

Well thats an easy stance to take...."i'm skeptical, I don't think he'll pan out, so right now I will say he sucks...but I'm open to the fact that might get better...therefore no matter what happens, I don't really have an opinion..."

LMAO .... not in million years man, but your prediction does have a better chance of coming true than the Leafs do winning a Stanley Cup anytime soon. That I will agree with that.

As for my gigglestick and funberries, they don't call me Thor nothing buddy.

Why thank you. No sense stressing out over a basketball team...there's so much more to life really. It's not that important

I see Roko playing Dixons role for 08/09 season.
3rd string PG
combo guard.
If he plays solid point you could see Tj or Jose gone.
Most likely TJ if he stays healthy next year.
Nothing this off-season
TJ lost his value after the injury...
and BC says Jose is staying so that means hes staying.

Say buhbye to Dixon
and Graham will definitely be traded...
Baston not happy?

Anyone else hear this not too long ago on the FAN, but apparently we actually reached a deal with Roko and his current club overseas?

I know there was today's discussion, but this is apparently confirmation now.

JMO, but from what I've seen of Roko he looks like a slightly less agressive Barbosa.
