Raptor fans should have seen the goods and the bads from Belinelli last season. While it didn't show up often enough, but when he was hot he was like a poor man's Ray Allen. But again, "didn't show up often enough" is the key.

But since they got Leandro, there will be no place of Marco. Wright is decent but how much play time will he get.....

i like this trade for both parts, although it is nothing to get excited about, it's even kind of irrelevant from Toronto's point of view as I don't see Wright being of any importance in their rotation.

I am hoping Marco gets a chance to build some confidence because he is very talented, and much more than just a shooter.

I think Ariza will be good with cp3 and dwest.

Fills out the depth chart a bit better (a legit backup SF) but I'm not very high on Wright. Decent trade though because I doubt Beli sees minutes over DeRozan, Weems and Barbosa.

Nice. Marco or Thornton (since Marco gives them better size for the starting 5) will be a good sixth man for the Horntes and now CP3 has some legit shooters to dish it to.

Paul
Bellinelli / Thornton
Ariza / Stojakovic
West
Okafor / Gray

I liked Juju, and I always thought he never got a fair shake from Scott (where have we seen this before?). Hopefully he can contribute somewhere else.

Unless they get a real backup PG, I think Thornton should start.

I like Thornton to play off the ball with CP and Marco to be the combo off the bench a la Pargo. Don't like Thornton being on the floor without a good PG. It's like asking Rip Hamilton to run the point.

Simple answer, they have no athleticism or defense at the 3 with Kleiza and Belinelli. They have a logjam at the 2, MB's natural position, with Weems,Derozan and Barbosa as well. Wright makes a lot more sense to back up Kleiza.

Bellinelli is a good replacement for Peja when he expires (both the contract and his ability), but I think Thornton will start, he played too well last year to regress and not start.

This is the first thing I think of when I hear the name Julian Wright

Marco Belinelli is one of the most underated players to play in the Nba.I hope he gets his chance in NO. CP3 can make him a star
