Default Hassan Adams traded

Quote:
The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday they have traded guard-forward Hassan Adams and cash considerations to the Los Angeles Clippers for a future second-round draft pick.

Adams appeared in 12 games this season, totaling 11 points and seven rebounds in 52 minutes. He drew a DNP-CD in 14 games and was on the inactive list for eight contests.

Adams was signed by the Raptors as a free agent July 8. He was selected 54th overall in the 2006 NBA Draft by the New Jersey Nets and spent the 2006-07 season with the club.

He played with two teams in Italy last season.

I remember when we got him people on this board were talking about how he was going to be a key guy for us....a defensive stopper at the 2. Wow. There is a reason some guys are in Europe and not in the NBA.

Same thing just happened to Shaun Livingston. Traded to the Grizzlies and then cut.

Tough day for scrubs.

He played in 12 games? I missed something.

As Colangelo said, a minor tax move and nothing else. I question where this 2nd rounder will even fall, how conditional it is and whether it'll even end up materializing for the Raptors. I wouldn't bet on it.

I honestly thought he was a better player than what he was doing in T.O. Was he injured or something? He always had that stupid thing on his shoulder. After seeing his brutal shooting mechanic and TERRIBLE D, I was vastly mistaken on this player's skill set. I actually thought he was going to be this year's Jamario Moon for the Raps. Man was I ever wrong.

For some reason I always liked this guy and I might be wrong but I thought I remembered him actually playing decent in NJ when they gave him minutes. I thought he would be able to help the team but I guess he never showed much. I just hope he doesn't become like Roger Mason. I was a big fan of Mason's when the Bulls drafted him and I remember being happy to get him in the Jalen Rose deal. Unfortunately, he got cut and after playing in Europe for a while, he's become a pretty solid wing in the league.

I've never seen him show any basketball skill, or exceptional athletcism. You could have pulled a 6'3 guy out of the stand and had the same contribution.
