Raptors waiting to see if Knicks match Landry Fields offerPosted by Inside Hoops
Not yet aware whether or not Landry Fields would become the newest member of the Raptors, head coach Dwane Casey and power forward Ed Davis made it clear they’d be happy to have him in the fold.
Speaking about six hours before the New York Knicks had to make a call whether to match Toronto’s three-year, $19 million U.S. offer on Fields, Casey said he hoped New York would let Fields walk.
“If we’re fortunate enough to get him, he’s a guy that can defend multiple positions. He runs the floor, good shooter … he gives us another guy who can catch-and-shoot, space the floor,” Casey said.
“If we don’t get him, we’ll still be fine, but hopefully we do get him because that’s extra talent. It’s always nice to have guys with NBA experience to help us,” added Davis, who was part of the same rookie class as Fields.
