Rasho returning to the Raptors? 

Post#1 » by LittleOzzy » Thu Jun 26, 2008 2:10 am

Talking to a few guys who work at Sportsnet, they had a conversation with Jack tonight concerning the JO deal with the Pacers and the Raptors are actually hoping to have a "wink wink" deal with Rasho that he'll be waived and return to back up Jermaine O'Neal.

The only thing they are worried about is Rasho getting calls from the Spurs and Celtics to either play along side Duncan or KG again as both teams will be contenders again next year.

Anyways, just thought I would share the rumour. If any of the mods need a better source just PM me, but as most of them know I'm not the type to just post garbage.

Would you be happy if Rasho returned for the veterans minimum?

does not Rasho have a wife and kids here? I think he'll be okay with coming back here. He already has a ring.

Absolutely. Then Bargnani can focus more on his game, and obviously we will need a 4th competent big man for the expected downtime between Bosh/JO

A buy out/waved and him coming back would make me happy. We sure have the roster space.

Very interesting indeed.

I'd definitely be interested in Rasho backing up O'neal.

Probably adds more fuel to the fire that Bargnani might be moved and that the O'neal deal is a precursor of things to come.

I'd welcome him back but he could be of good use for the Pacers who lack a big.

No prob with Rasho coming back... Just wondering how much we have left to spend, considering we also need a backup PG and/or SG.

He'll take up more of Bargs' minutes!

That's what I'm thinking too. Bosh + JO + RASHO = byebye Bargs.

Hopefully he doesn't have Stackhouse Syndrome.
My name is Taiyab, and I realize there is an intra-team conflict at the Point Guard spot.

Rasho for the vet min would be key. If contingent on him wanting to return to TO of course, but he would add a lot of depth in the case of injury to our frontline.

The Raptors would be very close to luxury tax territory if they use the MLE to shore up the back-up PG and swingman positions though.

Interesting development...
