Default Raptors sign Ukic, Adams

Quote:
According to a report in the Globe and Mail, the Raptors have reached an agreement with former second-round pick Roko Ukic to serve as a backup to Calderon. The 24-year old Croatian has spent the last few seasons playing in Europe, most recently taking Lottomatica Roma to the Euroleague final.

Quote:
The report also states that the Raptors have signed former New Jersey Net Hassan Adams. The 6-foot-4 Adams will likely see some action at the off-guard or small forward spot. Adams spent last season playing for Basket Draghi Novara of the Italian league.

Didn't see too much of Adams but he was a real hustle player when he got burn. I don't think this leaves us with much of anything to sign anymore players, am I correct?

Default Re: Raptors sign Ukic, Adams

so our offseason is done.

Calderon/Ukic
Parker/Adams
Kapono/Moon/Graham
Bosh/Humphries
O'Neal/Bargnani/Jawai

that puts us at 12.

and oh yea, i like the addition of adams. very athletic, good defender, just has some serious holes in his game.

$10 says he gets more PT than Graham does this season.

It's been reported that Jawai isn't gonna play for us immediately though.

I still thinking that we need help in the SG position and maybe a big body for the pain too.

Actually it was reported in the paper a few days back their probably bringing him over. It was in one of the two Nathan Jawai threads. I think one of two last players at the minimum we should take a look at it Will Daniels or Josh Duncan to play at the 3. Both decent scorers and have the size and maturity to at least play a decent backup role. Then we'll be set.

i really like adams style of play for us, gritty, very athletic strong on the ball defender with long arms and big hands. dont think he will get much PT though at first.

and FINALLY our boy Roko has come to us. Calderon and Roko will be exciting to watch on offense, but not so much on defense, BC still needs a defensive 3rd PG in there, one with veteran experience.

Raps need to serious help at the SG position. A rotation of Parker and Adams is amongst the weakest in the league.

nice i like adams, but we still need delfino coming off the bench aswell,

i would at least like to see

ford / ukic
parker / delfino
moon / adams (i know hes only 6-4 but thats his sort of [position)
bosh / hump
o'neal / bargnani

ukic and adams will be league minimim deals, so defino can get a deal around 4 million a season for next 3 or 4 years from raps, then we can use the bi - annual for a 3rd bigman / pg

Delfino is as good as gone.

Expect the SG position to be improved at the trade deadline if the Raptors are looking like contenders. Bargnani, Parker's expiring deal and future 1st rounders... a combination of those could get a deal done for a team that is out of contention.
