He's a tough minded foward in which the raptors have been lacking ever seen they traded away JYD and Davis!

Tough, athletic, big body...and young enough to have some upside. Came from a winning program. Good pickup. Not a world beater, but nice depth move for next year (and means to keep some wear off Bosh this year).

I thought he just signed with the Spurs, or did they not renew his 10-day?

Anyway, please use his real name from now on: Nana Papa Yaw Dwene Mensah-Bonsu

Woot, best player in the D-League, still fairly young, should help our depth considerably. I like the move, if for no other reason than it will allow Bosh to play less minutes for the remainder of this lost season.

If he turns out to be decent, could allow us to include Hump as part of a trade. Also, could help a lot if the second coming of Rasho doesn't occur. I don't want another year of Voskuhl as our primary backup C (although I respect his ability to dish out hard, injurious fouls without getting suspended, he's just too unathletic and white). Develop Pops and O'Bryant behind Bargs and Bosh.

Gooden just signed with the Spurs so I guess the spurs felt like they didnt need Pops anymore.

Anyways, this guy is a great athelete!! He should provide us with lots of energy and hustle, I hope he does well with us.

his 10-day was only to fill a vacant PF position until they finished the gooden signing

as long as the raps wanna be competitive, he won't get much playing time
he's easily just became our most athletic big, but he still lacks the basketball IQ to contribute consistently

Well, he played in Spain the first part of the season, playing with DKV Joventut, and he did quite well. Perhaps a good sign.

25 minutes per game, 10 points - 8.4 rebounds.

Basically a Hump type game without taking dumb shots. I'm very satisfied.

by the looks of things, he's a rebound first guy during both O and D, he's always around the basket.
