    I expect nurse to make some adjustments if he has to.

    The constant Pascal but how about the blue collar guys in RHJ/ Boucher and TD. Masai and Bobby should already earn a major raise by finding these three.

    Amazing stories especially TD

    We are seeing so many teams run zone defense now. I dont know the numbers but it felt like it was only the Raptors and Heat running it last year.

Come in, play great defense, which he is capable of and knock down those open shots. However, that is easier said than done given his lack of opportunity.
    Hes had plenty of opportunity with the pistons and his game hasn't grown at all since then. He reminds me of Joey Graham. Has all the tools just isn't amounting to anything. I like that RHJ is earning his way with effort.

    I could see Masai taking a chance on Josh Jakson next year. Another defensive high upside guy with a lack of a shot like RHJ, Stanley Johnson.

    You definitely are seeing more of it now. The Raps need to work on their rebounding though and unfortunately running zone defence only makes that harder. The Knicks and Sixers both got 15 offensive rebounds against us.

    Maybe time to get a rumor mill thread going? There's some juicy stuff out there already.

    Raptors should go after Aldridge if they're smart

    They are making a more concerted effort to grab those boards. Nurse leans towards crashing the boards than leaking out for transition points. Hoepfully having Ibaka back will help.

    Disagree.

    I was thinking about a trade based around Gasol, but his defence wins games. We don’t have any trouble scoring.

    lol no. Raptors would be smart if they don't go after Aldridge.

    If anything we would trade for a sg. Our front court is pretty solid with Gasol, Ibaka Siakam, Boucher

    Ibaka will provide a much needed boost. I love Boucher but he still gets bullied on the glass. The Raps have been running like crazy this year though. Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure they're 1st in transition points per game right now.
