So how does this work financially for the Raptors; like do they pay for all the players travel expenses to be there, or do players pay out of pocket. If I remember correctly, Nurse hosted a quick Raptors workout with the same group like a day or two before Rico

I know it's all highlights but I'm liking what I'm seeing out of Stanley and RHJ and the 2 rooks in Davis and Dewan.

It's way too early to say but Davis and Dewan have the potential to be solid rotation guys, if not more.

Davis is a stud. Huge hands show on his gathers as he dunks. Good elevation and quickness getting to the rim. Nice catch and shoot ability.

Looks like he will be an active defender who will play a bit bigger than his size. I honestly think he will stand out more than Norm and win the starting SG role.

Some observations from this run:

- Fred VanVleet seems to have expanded his shooting range. He's still poor at dribble penetration, but even in those situations he's really patient and calmly waits for a teammate to come over and get the ball from him. Coming off of screens to shoot could be the next addition to VanVleet's game...

- Norman Powell seems very good in limited minutes, although he needs to learn how to make bounce passes and throw lobs instead of using these weird over-the-top passes which are easier to pick off. His quickness and driving ability (off the dribble and off the catch) are still very good as always.

- Terence Davis looks really solid. He seems like someone who will get rotation minutes right away. He has a knack for moving off the ball and getting into the right spots and making shots.

- Stanley Johnson wasn't impressive at all. In terms of positive impact, he made a bunch of threes and that's it.

- Keep an eye out for Dewan Hernandez, he moves fluidly and he can put the ball on the floor already.

I already sold on TD and Dewan looking better then I thought he would (Still wanted Tacko Fall :roll:). The unimpressive was Stanley Johnson and Matt Thomas.

Yo Fred's shots are dirty. This bodes well for this upcoming season. I have a feeling our man just might be in the starting lineup.
