We still have Kleiza
 
It seems like everyone forgot we still have Kleiza. Does anyone really want him on this team anymore? James Johnson > Kleiza... too bad we signed Kleiza to a big contract.

LX 03-26-2011 08:03 PM

He's not going to be ready to play for some time. Not really worth thinking about.

Claudius 03-26-2011 08:04 PM

He's signed to a decent MLE contract. It's easily moveable.

Also, if healthy, he's still a decent player off the bench. I don't think he's the answer at SF, but he's a nice 7th man. Get him healthy and I'd keep him.

Alex 03-26-2011 08:23 PM

I like Kleiza when he's playing smart and posting up. Not doing his best Barbosa impression.

carp 03-26-2011 08:26 PM

let kleiza worry about his knee and we can worry about how he fits when he gets back.

LX 03-26-2011 08:29 PM

He'll be missing training camp and be out of shape with no place in the rotation. There's really not much to consider until the following season. I'm thankful that we have JJ, or else it would be shitty to think about at all.

Aamir 03-26-2011 09:57 PM

We haven't even seen him play at his best at all. I don't know, I just wanna see him play when he's 100% healthy. Same with Barbosa.

Kleiza is 10x better than Weems.....sure we want him. What is it with people and not wanting to keep talent? :0

I agree....Weems & Wright are the odd man out this summer!

How come James Johnson > Kleiza? A joke.
Oh, I just wish he leaves Toronto, he was not suitable here. Maybe it's because of his injury? He was slow as Jabba the Hutt. He always has pretty fast. Yes, he slowed down after he gained few extra pounds, but damn, as a Raptor, he was just slow.

No other team will want him, so I think we're stuck.

Sorry, but his contract isn't that bad and he is not Matt Carrol or Kapono. I dont see any problems if Raps wants to get rid of him.

Keep in mind Kleiza was MUCH MUCH better in the preseason before he hot hurt. The knee injury made him lose a step and he couldn't really get into the shots as well.

No he's not. Those guys (Caroll and Kapono) are great three point shooters.

we talking about the same kapono that's shooting 26% fg's and 20% from 3 this year?

or the same matt carroll that's shooting 40% fg and 33% from 3?

Barracuda 03-27-2011 11:34 AM

I totally forgot about Kleiza.

jeffb 03-27-2011 12:13 PM

I want to see what a healthy kleiza can do next season. He was obviously never really 100% after training camp.

Admiral 03-27-2011 03:07 PM

i really hope kleiza can come back and be a decent player, that way the wing position gets more solidified and we don't have to sign weems back

I don't want Weems back either way.
