He would play in summer leagues, with the globetrotters, whatever he could do.
Of course playing in those leagues doesn't put the type of strain as the nba on the body. so i think the raptors wanted him to come into camp with a well rested body. who knows what he'll be capable of because we've never seen him rested. I still maintain that jamario has the ability to improve a lot this season and become a very very good sf. a poor man's gerald wallace perhaps. this is why i'd like the raptors to look at upgrading the 2g. I feel pretty good about moon/kapono. if we could get mike miller, or kevin martin or francisco garcia i would be very pleased.
Yes, Garcia would be perfect. Dont know his contract situation or the chances of him fitting in financially, but his game is well rounded and he's just waiting to break out with some consistent minutes. Very under-rated. Go get him BC!
