Default Pops Mensa Bonsu

The rumour going around is that he has had a tryout with the Raptors. This guy is probably the best player in the NBA D League, & last night had a massive 39 points & 18 rebounds for the Austin Toros. The guy is a fantastic athlete. Huge around the basket & has now added a mid range jumper to his game. The 6ft 9 Brit, can play power forward or centre.

He was brought in along with Antoine Walker for a look prior to the Soloman-O'Bryant trade. One of the two would have been here had that trade not gone down (and Soloman would have been waived is my understanding). Just remember... he's not in the NBA for a reason... this guy wouldn't be a difference maker... maybe a cheap depth guy.

He's athletic and has some natural skill, but yeah, he's in the D-League for a reason. From what I understand he has a very low basketball IQ and mostly just relies on his strength and athleticism to get by.

if he can smash the boards im all for getting him in a raptors uniform. considering our serious lack of frontcourt depth i'm not sure why people are being so picky.

o'bryant is a waste of time.

Will we really pay luxury tax for a guy who will never play in a season that's already lost?

He's been averaging some killer stats in the D-League.. like 27-13 and 2.5 blocks.
