“We are very happy to add a tough-minded, hard-nosed forward who will certainly get a chance to contribute given the departure of Hedo Turkoglu,” said Raptors President and General Manager Bryan Colangelo. “Linas has that unique inside/outside game that makes him a tough cover at a couple of different positions.”
I don't think here in Denver anybody is on the ledge ready to jump because of losing Linas I mean he was an average player nothing too exciting. In a way he was a bigger version of J.R. I mean when he was on he was good but when he was off he could throw a cow and not hit the side of a barn.
