A full evacuation fire alarm here at theScore headquarters threw a wrench into our plans for another podcast, but here are some media clips from Friday for your viewing pleasure:
Terrence Ross discusses what he could read from the Raptors after his pre-Draft workout for the team.
Quincy Acy, who I think can become a fan-favourite in Toronto (though I’m disappointed that he was selected over Baylor teammate Quincy Miller), explains his selection of jersey No. 4, and how it relates to the previous Raptor to wear the number, you know, the Raptors’ franchise leader in most categories?
Lastly, Bryan Colangelo reminds us that it’s impossible to judge a Draft the day after it happened, instead of letting the players settle the debate.
The only question I have left: What, no Zubcic?
In case you missed it, the Raptors have extended qualifying offers to Jerryd Bayless and Sonny Weems (remember him), which really only means that the Raps have the chance to match any offer either player receives. I can still see J-Bay back in Toronto next season. Weems, not so much.
Also, Eric Koreen shot down the random internet report that stated Colangelo had announced he was going to amnesty Calderon. If the Raptors end up signing Steve Nash, this is obviously a legitimate possibility, but I’d still like to see what Calderon’s solid season and expiring contract could fetch on the trade market.
Have a great Canada Day weekend, Forza Azzurri on Sunday, and remember to check back with us throughout the weekend to keep abreast of any Raptors-related news that may leak through.
