Patience is wearing thin, changes are being made and as the Raptors
free fall through the Eastern Conference standings, coach Jay Triano is
taking a hard-line approach.
The NBA is nothing if not a giant trade rumour but this one involving
the Raptors piques your attention: The rumbling is the Raps considering
sending underachieving point guard Jose Calderon to Sacramento for the
Kevin Martin who doesn’t curl. Martin can score from the two-guard,
can’t play much defence, and wouldn’t that make him the perfect Raptor?
Toronto’s Chris Bosh doesn’t sound like he’ll be giving anyone a discount when he becomes a free agent next summer.
"That’s a good question," Bosh said before his game against the Knicks
– one of his potential suitors – when asked if he’d be willing to
accept something less than a max deal in order to play with better
talent. "I don’t know (laughs). I don’t know about (LeBron James and
Dwyane Wade). I really don’t know. Like I said, it’s a business, so
that would be tough to do. You’d really have to make a big commitment
to do that."
Chris Bosh made a delayed appearance at yesterday’s scrimmage, but the fans were waiting.
With the team already in the middle of their warmups and having been introduced individually, Bosh came out to his own introduction and a rousing welcome.
Neither Hedo Turkoglu nor Chris Bosh got any on-court work done as the Raptors officially began training camp in Ottawa on Tuesday.
Just when it appeared Byran Colangelo’s makeover of the Raptors was over, comes word that the GM
The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired guard/forward Carlos Delfino and guard Roko Ukic (pronounced ROE-co OO-kitch) from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for forward Amir Johnson and guard/forward Sonny Weems, General Manager John Hammond announced today.
The Toronto Raptors introduced Jarrett Jack on Tuesday after signing him to a $20 million deal over four years.
In a sudden rush at the end of a frenzied week, the Toronto Raptors have remade their roster and signed free-agent forward Hedo Turkoglu, The Globe and Mail has confirmed.

Toronto also remains in contention to re-sign forward Shawn Marion, who is attracting very little interest on the open market.
General manager Bryan Colangelo said last week he had a number in mind for a contract offer to Marion, who was paid almost $18 million last season and will surely take a significant pay cut.
