Decent addition, Sonny isn't going to be leader of the team, but one of the better players on team for sure.

Whoever said he was carving a spot on the Raptors roster or on his way to rotational minutes clearly hasn't been watching toronto ball last season, although I don't blame em.

Sonny Weems regressed terribly last year. Looking for his own stats and losing focus of his role, as a defensive, hustling, fast break roleplayer. If Kleiza wasn't injured he would have been third in line at SF.

Only reason Colangelo even offered him an extension was because a) he's super cheap, b) he's best buddies with derozan and c) we're gonna suck anyways might as well see what Sonny can do in a more organized structure under Casey.

I like him going overseas. While his game isn't built for FIBA, it might force him to adjust and perform in this new restrictive role against lesser competition. He does have a very underrated mid range and he can be a beast on the defensive end with his athleticism. He'll definitely be back in north America within a year or two.

I suppose Sonny didn't have the year he/me/the craptors were hoping for last season, but I felt like some of it was just due to various injury issues and the suckiness of his team. He had some good games here and there, and I certainly think he's an NBA caliber player. I didn't see him being forced to leave the league, so I'm not sure why he chose to.

Well there's probably a lockout next year, chances are for 20 games or more. So, why wouldn't he go make some coin there? Instead of playing the waiting game over here for his half a million dollar salary. He'll get some good development opportunities and the Raptors still hold on to his rights. I see this as win win pretty much
