I hope this deal happens, i am a huge fan of Fred Jones, even though we all know Jason Richardson should have won that dunk contest. Anyways, back to the Raptors. I think fred could be the starting 2 guard on this team with mo or parker playing the 3. Either way, there is some depth now at those two possitions. His outside shooting may be suspect but he has gotten better each year he has been in the league and i think that trend should continue. Colangilo, make this happen.
Lets all wait for the official signing of Jones.
If this goes down with the Garbo signing and signing of our 2nd round pick Tucker, the roster should be finalized.
Looks good, maybe even for the 7th or 8th seed if they come together
Fred Jones >>> Salmons !!! Good Signing hopefully Pacers dont match.
Don't plan on this happening....if the rumours are true about al Harrington going to Indiana, then they won't have the cap for him. And also, they are close to signing Jimmie "Snap" Hunter. So basically, Fred Jones is wrapped up between our little fingers and isn't leaving. Unless he backs out like Salmons. I think he was afraid that the Raps are turning to good and he couldn't handle it...
I like this deal much better than the proposed ones for Salmons and House. Jones ought to be exciting, finish off some run and gun moves in spectacular fashion, and he has time to get better. Brings something new to the team.
i think Salmons had no idea who Anthony Parker was and was under the assumption that the starting SG role would be open for him.
once he realized that he'd have to come off the bench, he backed out.
atleast... thats the only reason i can think of.
I think so too.
I think he looked at our roster and saw Mo Pete, Pj Tucker, Anthony Parker, Joey Graham, TJ Ford, Jose Calderon, Jorge Garbajosa and wondered where he would fit in among those players that play his postions.
