Re: Raptors Summer League 2015

I'm not so sure we should go crazy over Powell quite yet. Tony Allen with offensive polish is a perennial all-star-type player. If he can be Courtney Lee, or maybe better yet, a young DeRozan with more of an edge on defense we should be thrilled. He still has a funky release and he has yet to prove that his activity on defense will be as effective at the next level. I'll be skeptical until I see it with Powell, he was a mid-second rounder after all.

That said, I am thrilled that he is signed, but I think I might be just as interested in seeing if Bebe can crack the rotation to back up Jonas and take up some of the minutes Amir left behind.

Re: Raptors Summer League 2015

And we're out. Bulls downed us last night.

Our PG play was downright atrocious without Delon Wright running things. Bruno played a much better game offensively, but McDougy took him to school again and again exploiting the young mans lack of strength.

Norman Powell started hot and then cooled and then inexplicably sat for a huge portion of the game. I know it's not the be all and end all, but I would have preferred to see a real winning mentality from our coaching staff.

Bebe with 11 and 16 and smothered Portis once again.

We have a consolation game this evening I believe.

Re: Raptors Summer League 2015

Powell was named to the NBA-All Summer League 1st Team. Well deserved.
