Default Raptors extend qualifying offers to Jerryd Bayless and Sonny Weems

Would you like to see both of these players return for the Raptors?

I don't see a need at all for Weems.

Bayless to me is a dime a dozen player. I don't seem him getting better than he is but he's a decent rotation player, so whether he is here or not doesn't bother me one way or the other.

No to both. With the flexibility we have, we can chase better talent.

Keep that $ and go after established talent if the goal is really to contend.

Replace bayless with George hill, and no need for weems.

George Hill would be pointless.

The small upgrade you get from Bayless to Hill isn't worth the money difference since we're talking about backups assuming the Raptors sign either Nash or Dragic. And yes, it is small, George Hill isn't that good.

I wonder what Bayless+Weems could land us in the trade market. I'd love to see us get back a 3 point specialist in return if in fact Nash does come here

Just read on ESPN that the Cavs are interested in Weems.

We shouldn't match the offer if it's anymore than what Gary Forbes got paid.

If we can get Weems at the right price then sure. Weems is a good locker room guy. The reality is we need players 11-15 and for the most part I hope these guys barely, if ever, see the floor. If we can get Weems on the cheap and he contributes by being a good locker room guy who works the starters hard at scrimmage in practice then I'm in. We need to fill those slots anyways so I'd be up for giving one to Weems at the right price.

Besides, every once in a while when we're down 15-20, throw Weems out there. Maybe we get lucky and he gets hot cuz he certainly loves to shoot. Maybe he brings us back into a game or two. Sweet Weems are made of this.

How guys do we need at the SF spot?


We already have Demar DeRozan, Terrence Ross, James Johnson, Linus Kleiza, Gary Forbes taking up minutes there and judging by the interest in Batum we are also looking to add some free agent help at there also.
