I find it funny that Acie Earl was mentioned, even though he hasn't played in a very very long time.Now, the beauty of 10-day contracts is they last only 10 days. But someone like Hill, for instance, probably wouldn't bother to join the Raptors if he didn't have an assurance, written or otherwise, that he was going to last longer than that.
Only Grunwald can decide if his team needs more immediate help. Roberts? Oakley? Hill? Acie Earl? Benoit Benjamin? Big men in the NBA are like left-handed pitchers in baseball: They're always in demand.
That pretty much takes care of this rumour.When asked yesterday if the size-challenged Raptors would consider signing Rodman, general manager Glen Grunwald said bluntly, "No." Fair enough, but this is a league where Oliver Miller has found employment again, so more is possible than initially meets the eye.
I know there will be fans that want Oak back, but he is very old now, and probably won't be able to contribute much on the floor other than hack-jobs. Plus, some people forget that aside from pushing Vince, he was a jerk in general, and has been booed unrelentingly since his unceremonious departure.Originally posted by <b>Slasher</b>!
What about the Oakley or Hill scenarios? I myself like that idea.

The one thing I wouldn't mind is signing either Tyrone Hill or Charles Oakley to a 10-day contract.
