Jeez, he didn't die!

Good luck, Precious! Would have loved to have kept you! I'll follow your career closely...

TBH we might regret letting him go in a couple of years.

High level athlete with growing skills. He needs more reps and time, I hope he becomes great..looked like a hard working kid.

Let Toronto coach him up then bring him back when he's finally ready to play after Lowrys contract is up. We're effectively having the Raps develop him for us.

I am excited to see what the kid brings to the Raptors. I think he will be a good fit coming from a great organization that reminds me of the Raptors in many ways.

He's got real potential. He should've been a lottery pick, only had one season in college, and only had one season in the pros during a covid year where he didn't even get a full training camp. He also didn't get to display everything he could do in the Heat's system, so none of us really know how good he can be.

But I think the Raptors will end up developing him to be a starting or really good backup center within 2 seasons. I expect he'll surprise your fanbase.

Woy Rapaz, you a savage.

Achiuwa has talent and ability, but he’s raw af. Realistically he didn’t fit our timeline, and Spo’s refusal to play him alongside Bam was basically a death knell on his time here.

Will be intrigued to watch his development in Toronto. Hopefully a better fit for his skillset and he gets minutes to learn in. Best of luck, rook.

Good luck young man. Spo sucks. I know, you know it too.

13 and 11 in his SL debut for Toronto today. Even attempted a 3. Didn’t watch the game so have no context on the numbers, but hoping for the best for the kid.

He looked decent to me. Surprised by his handles and the form on his shot looked decent. He had two decent footwork moves in the paint.

19 points, 8-11 shooting with 2-3 from 3's.

I think he'll be alright.

He looks pretty confident shooting the 3. I'm annoyed we didn't give him a chance to show that last season.

He's gonna be solid for the Raptors. Given they weren't going to keep Lowry anyway, they did well getting Achiuwa from us.

he might be good for them he might not be but they will surely give him a chance. we sometimes bottleneck players into a role instead of letting them fly. Wish him well
