Someone finally signs with us and it's a Canadian. Can't wait for SGA/Murray to get off their rookie extensions lol.

He's a good backup but we are supposed to be tanking so don't play too well.

You are getting Wiggins and Tristan Thompson and you'll like it.

A bought out player actually wants to sign with us? Khem, why are you doing this to yourself?

These buy outs are so unfair!! Oh wait, it's not a former or current all star, so this is fine.

Birch is low key a solid rotation big that can feast off the bench and even spot start. Solid move for the Raptors

I think hes pretty bad, I dont know, never understood why of all the guys who played on big Euro teams, he of all others got NBA invite and stuck around, guy is not very good at all, this will not hurt the tank, dont worry guys.

The Raps desperately need some size and rebounding, so this makes sense. Hopefully Lowry and FVV can get healthy and we can see what type of rotation we can actually throw out down the stretch.

It'll be interesting to see if Toronto can sign some big name free agents from the GTHA. This is a new thing since Toronto area never produced these types of talents in the past. I guess we'll see in about 5 years.

I would say everyone but Americans would love to play for Toronto. Thankfully the NBA is trending towards team World being better than Team USA finally so our odds to sign big named guys will increase dramatically.
