View Full Version : Raptors made the call to Charlie V and Kleiza

Update from Doug Smith on how BC and the Raps brass spent their first few calls once the clock hit midnight:


"What I'm hearing from some league sources is the team made overtures to one-time Raptor Charlie Villanueva as well as Denverís Linas Kleiza in the first few hours teams were able to negotiate with free agents."

"But thereís always the Marion situation to think about and Iím hearing around the league most of Colangeloís time overnight was spent monitoring any possible interest in the 31-year-old Matrix.
Not sure there was a whole lot but there was some and Colangelo has to weigh what heíd get back in a sign-and-trade, if thatís what it came to. Of course, his first goal is to get Marion under contract, but at a reasonable number and that's where the negotiating's gonna take place.
Oh yeah, itís not going to take very long for Toronto to welcome Carlos Delfino back to the fold. Word around the league is that itís close, very close. "

agreed^, I never understood the fascination with Charlie V, maybe in was the 48 points he scored against the Bucks that everyone remembers.
