Does anyone think think that the Raptors could sign Charles Oakley? He wouldn't have to play alot, he could be more of a coach to Bargnani, Jawai, and Humphries.

Also, for the last spot we should sign Lindsay Hunter. He wouldn't play that much, he could be more of a defence coach for Calderon, Ukic, Adams.

Just imagine Calderon with improved "D". Adams playing better "D" then he normally does.

Any thoughts?

as much as i would love to see Oak...hes not exactly in shape and able to play..if you want him to nurse Bargnani and those other guys ..hire him as a consultant and he'll help them in practice and times during the game almost like a coach like what derrick martin did last year.

dude oak is 44. he is too old to play. I personaly think that we should sign somone from europe like we did 2 years ago with Garbo, just this time hope they dont break their leg.

we wont be signing a 14th and 15th playe, simply put we are near the luxury tax and no way we go over that.

We only need 13 players (12 active) (1 inactive).

I think we could bring Oak not as a player, but some sort of trainer to help our big man, like Bargs, get tougher in the paint, boxing out, etc.

Just because the Leafs and Jays have been bringing back people from their past doesn't mean that the Raptors ought to do it.

Yes we do but because we r so close to the luxury tax limit I think we can use only half of it without having to pay penalty. If we use the full MLE we have to pay penalty

they definately won't be signing a 15th player as Printzezis is allowed to count as the 15th man.
