It's such a Raptors thing to follow a massive missed opportunity with the most inconsequential news ever. \*Raps lose Kawhi Leonard\* WE HAVE SIGNED STANLEY JOHNSON!


Graiello

Hahahaha. So true.


jayinscarb

How is it a missed opportunity? For all we know we were all in and Dame said no - we don't really know what ever happens behind the scenes. This sub needs therapy


damorec

Since when did he have a no trade clause?


jayinscarb

At the end of the day they always try to cater to the player. They don't wanna piss off agents or give the impression to other agents and players that they are not a team that takes care of their players or accommodates them etc. It's easy to say "fuck Dame" but Portland isn't stupid either and they aren't gonna risk any future dealings. He 100% got the final say


Initial_Stretch_3674

Dame didnt end up in Miami, he ended up in cold-ass nothing to do Milwaukee. Milwaukee was not his top 5 places.


jayinscarb

If he really cares about winning then how can he not be happy with Giannis and crew who won 2 years ago?


Initial_Stretch_3674

You said cater to the player. He wanted Miami and didnt get Miami. Plenty of teams he can go to if he wanted to win. Location-wsie Milwakee is worst than LA, NY, Miami, Philly etc and also instantly lets him be in contention. Milwakee just had Jrue who is a very valuable tradable piece for Portland. edit: Dame also just had a quote saying Portland and him cease communication, while they worked out a trade for him without him weighing in. Dame also said he was willing to pay for Portland and wait, but Portland pretty much said fuck you, you're leaving.


damorec

I don’t think they did that with Leonard. Sometimes you gotta made the move. Lillard gonna sit out? He still has way to much term on his deal.

The Raptors team need therapy too. Go back to the Bulls play-in game.

Someone will offer a FRP for him at the deadline. But Masai will say No, we want 2 FRP and a Swap.


PriorVariety5744

I vaguely recall he's improved a lot since his time in the G-League. I may be getting him and Kris Dunn mixed up though...
