well. SJ u seem settled on this Gray dude. hope C doesnt turn out to be out biggest weakness as we'd be taking one step fwd with Lowry / PG signing and 5 backwards with a void without a good enough presence at C . I think we all know Bargs is not the solution there..

Haddadi has more potential. And Haddadi is awesome.

Seems like a stiff to me. But ya, I guess.

That pick on Lebron was fine, shit, Lebron does the same thing they give him a special award for bravery

He's never played a game in the NBA. You need to give him some time.

at least 10 rookies a year start. if he's not starting that means he's not good enough yet. simple as that.

This isn't a solution to the center position, but I really hope the Raptors re-sign Jamaal Magloire to a new contract. He's going to make an impact behind-the-scenes with his tough attitude and leadership.

Val needs to gain some wait, esp going against NBA bigs, hes gonna have a tough time, Summer aint gonna cut it, at least a year he needs.

Don't mind a one year for Camby, Brown, Thabeet, or Kaman. Kaman will probably command a multi-year deal though.

I wouldn't mind throwing some change at robin Lopez. He shouldn't be expensive and he's a fantastic hustle guy. When he had minutes in Phoenix he played solid. He's young and defensive minded. He'd do well here as a backup and even starter on occasion if we try to bring JV around slowly.

I would actually like to see Wallace or Camby on 1 year contracts with us as a possible starter, and also until JV can mesh into his own role throughout the season. However I more than likely see us resigning Gray. He did a magnificent job for us last season at the C. So I really only see us signing a 3rd C at best

Agreed, I wish we could of grabbed Thab, that guy never got up to his potential, but hes still young.
