Ukic not happy in Toronto?

According to various sources from Greece, Croatia and the US, Olympiacos has made an offer to Roko Leni Ukic, worth 3,5 million euros for two years.

Ukic is reported to be displeased by his playing time in the Toronto Raptors, where he averaged 4 points and 2 assists last season, being the third option at point guard, behind Jose Manuel Calderon and Will Solomon. He last played in Europe in the jersey of Lottomatica Roma.
Don't go away mad....just go away.

not good.

I like him as a second option, and this season he will gain more playing time.
Triano better use his ass or our PG situation is fucked.

come on, he is our ONLY pg who's above 6'3 and actually DRIVES in the paint.

I predict we'll get a backup PG and Ukic will be pushed aside as long as Jose stays healthy.

If his salary comes off our books when he plays overseas, then send him to Europe.
When he knows how to shoot the ball then he can come back, or even when he knows how to dribble.

Every time he was dribbling I thought to my self it looked like he was carrying the ball I'm surprised he was only called for it just a few times. He is a project and frankly needs a lot of work before he can play in the NBA.

Theres no reason to believe this "source". Maybe its true, maybe its not. Doesnt have any sense to bash Roko for something that may be false or has been misinterpreted.

How could he really have expected more? He would be lucky to get any playing time at all on most teams, and he is still so rough and bone-headed.

Yeah, let's throw a young pg, with potential, great size and the only player with a set, out the window.

Judge him after his second year, not his first. Hell, even Chris Bosh looked outmatched his first year, Jose did, Anthony Parker, etc. The list goes on.

What did people expect from a rookie who's played his entire career in Europe? Expectations must've been wonky.
