I remember people on another board were adamant he was our best young player and we should build around him.

according to 12/13 season euroleague stats- shooting 3FG at 43.8% , and 88% FT, he probably is and would fit any nba team right now , at least as first sg or sf from the bench.

Weems was always good, he just became a scapegoat by people here. I'd much rather have him than AA or Fields.

This ^
I have seen most of his games past 2 years, now he's returning after injury so his game bit off, but he is still better than half the Raptors roster. If not huge CSKA's offer, he would be playing in NBA this season and he definitely will be after that contract is over.

Weems is a chucker looking out for his own stats. I wouldn't want him here again

I think he WAS back then.... Now? Probably not.... but he's a guy I'd love to have back TBH. Was always athletic and a capable defender. Would probably fit nicely with DD and Gay too.

He was just another dude who was asked to do far too much when he was here initially (due to a lack of talent on the roster). If we could get him cheap on a 2 or 3 yr deal I'd happily bring him back.

agreed
chucker, had no ball handles, D was overrated, he is not better than AA
at least AA has some handles to move himself from point A to point B on the court

His D wasn't overrated at all. Considering how much our team D sucked rocks I'd say his D was actually UNDER-rated.

His mid-range game was also pretty good.

I agree.... but he did get selfish... and he definitely had a misguided valuation of his skills.

Won't disagree there.... If he came here I'd be counting on Casey get a lot more out of him (and holding him more accountable) than Triano did.

his mid-range game was terrible, his offense overall way terrible, the only reason why we thought anything positive about him was because his overall game was an upgrade to the guy that he replaced, jamario moon

While reading this topic I only see "was, was, was". Did you guys saw his progress after he left the NBA? He was playing for the Raptors more than 2 years ago. I remember watching Raptor games in 10/11 season, and I agree with all of you about he's being terrible. His shooting from everywhere was poor. But gradually he became a mature, much smarter player. Yes he was a chucker , but now, how you can call him so while averaging 16 points on avg. 11 FG attempts?

Truth is this, I'd rather be paying Sonny 1M per year than Landry 6M.... but people on here were clamoring for us to give him 3-4M per season before he left..... Too Weemsical with our cap space. Yuck.

Young, healthy, athletic, good character... but he wanted too much, thought too highly of himself, and he had to go. He's a minimum salary guy.... would he come back for that? He's Alan Anderson really. AA had a great three week stretch, now he's come back to earth a little, but a very solid guy with worldly experience that you absolutely DO NOT want to pay more than the minimum. Bad teams overpay for minimum guys. We need to purge more of those 2M-6M per year contracts that so often result in inconsistent players and frustrated fans with overzealous expectations.

Wait, wha?

He was a guy who immature on the court and made some really bad decisions and never used his strength. Fields and AA use their strengths to their advantage. It's why they got/get contracts and will again.

His SHOT SELECTION was terrible (in his 2nd season with us).

His mid-range game was anything but.

I think that IF Sonny returns to the NBA he'll be a different player this time around.... sort of reminiscent of P.J. Tucker (who has found his way back in to the league and into a starting job in PHX). He needed to grow up a bit... and based on what I've seen and heard about him overseas it sounds like he has.

If we can amnesty LK and purge Landry's contract, Sonny on a current AA contract would be awesome.
