You suck Masai. You lost Kawhi (which we can forgive) but you couldn’t even sign Vince for us? Boo!

Aren’t the TNT Studios based in Atlanta? Vince probably picked the Hawks based on that.

i find it VERY hard to believe that many raptors fans feel that way about one of the best GMs in the league...who just played a major role in bringing them their first ever title

back on topic, i'm disappointed that vince doesn't play until he's clearly washed up. would be interesting to see how long he could go

ESPN's campus is just up the road from Boston... guess if he was about broadcasting that could also have been an option. Even NY would have been good if he was after air time.

Raptors should've picked him, Masai missed the marketing opportunity.

Vince has zero value to the raptors. I hope the hawks just waive him towards the end of the season, and Raps pick him up on a 10-day to do a retirement bash to the finish line. That's about all he needs from the raptors.

First thing why is he not signing to contenders.
Does he enjoy losing ?
Secondly raptors and vince should never be cordial again.
Carry on Vince go fo a retirement home thing in New Jersey

Well it does make sense to bring VC back given that the Raptors are now a WINNING team.

Good to bring him back so that us Rap's fan can be all nostalgic about the Raptor"s LOSER era.

Excellent decision by Masai. You don't continue a winning culture by adding perennial losers to your team.

Trust me, it's not the norm among Raptor's fans.

Vince is already washed up! His defense is atrocious and does he ever look slow on the floor! He's a beneficiary of the soft league of today where defense is created through offense.

At this point, we don't know if TOR made an offer or not. Just that Carter add several offers, included one from ATL, and he decided to pick this one. Maybe he didn't have one from TOR, but maybe he had one and refused

You say today's league is soft but you do realize players actually have more injuries and break down more in this era than in the previous era's that nearly every player is pushed to their physical peak.. This era is tougher on the body than past era's..

Not is not!
Before 90ties players were allowed "touch defense"which in reality translated in a lot more: pushes, grabs, kicks, punches, etc.
MJ & other greats would score a lot, lot more in today's "no touch" defense.
