Raptors Who's backing up who?

My money is on: Demar starts at 2, JJ starts at 3, Ed starts at 4, if not at the start, then by the end of next season.

But who's backing up who? Wright's gone, not sure about Kleiza and Sonny.

-Is Weems backing up Demar at 2 and Barbosa (likely) gone or is Weems backing up at 3?

-Is JJ backing up Kleiza? or the reverse?

-Is Is Amir backing up Ed at 4?

- And while we're at it, if a serviceable centre comes in, is Bargnani then 6th man?

-P.S. because the team is so young, you can probably expect Jose back again with Bayless backing up....unless of course they win the lottery.

Demar and Ed should be locked in at 2 and 4. If Bargnani is not traded, there is no way in hell he is coming off the bench. We will not get another starting centre until he is traded.

The real question is, who is going to be our PG? Do we stick with Jose or do we draft one? (Kemba, Irving).

Also,is JJ going to be our starting three? If he is then we will have no shooters at all in our starting line up.

next season yes he will be but not our future starting sf(if we want to contend). next seasons lineup:


JC/JB
DD/weems
JJ/Kleiza
ED/Amir(depends on summer)/reggie
Bargs/Reggie

oh and add a rook somewhere in there :P

I did not include the high draft pick deliberatley. Even on a 20 and 52 team, some guys are nearly untouchable because of their age, upside and low salary. Those are probably only Ed an Demar. So if there is a pick coming in, defying best player available, it would likely be at 1, 3 or 5. My money is on 1 or 3 with 5 coming via trade or free agency.

It's almost certain Weems isn't coming back. Sorry DeMar. Just not enough room for another wing.....plus he sucks.

DD,DD,ED are gonna develop. They're not the problem. Bargs at C is the problem.
JC is a solid PG so unless we draft Kemba or Kyrie, or JC is traded, he should start and continue to help the younger guys develop.

I always liked Sonny Weems personally, but he's as good as gone.

As people mentioned, there's no playing opportunity for him. James Johnson will either be starting, or be the primary backup. With Kleiza coming back (I'm not very big on him), there's even less playing time. Knowing BC, we're probably going to get another player at the wing in the off season.

I hope Sonny still has contact with that German team that almost signed him.

i agree with the Bargs issue. however i believe that will be fixed through FA this summer and i chose not to include that since i have no clue we will get

barbosa is coming back next year. i think hes going to pick up his 7 mill player option because nobody is going to give him that kind of money.

I see him gone or traded as I assume he wants to contend for once.
