Let's Meet Delon Wright, the Raptors' new point guard

Masai Ujiri got busy last night, filling in the hole left by Greivis Vasquez by drafting Delon Wright. Here's a breakdown of his game. So that one came a little bit out of left field. Going into the draft, Point Guard was probably the most settled position on the Raptors' squad. Kyle Lowry, Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams made for a solid backcourt rotation last year, so most assumed that the Raptors would be addressing the wing or front court in the draft. Masai Ujiri obviously had something to say about that. Two years after stealing a first round pick for Andrea Bargnani, Ujiri pulled a...

Bucks 2015 NBA Draft Reactions: Digesting the Rashad Vaughn pick and Greivis Vasquez trade

The Bucks bolstered their backcourt with a trade and a first-round pick during the 2015 NBA Draft. We discuss the impact of these moves in our latest podcast episode. The 2015 NBA Draft quickly transformed into a busy night for the Milwaukee Bucks. A trade for Raptors point guard Greivis Vasquez leveraged the value of a future first-round pick and extra cap space, and then at No. 17 overall the Bucks selected UNLV shooting guard Rashad Vaughn. Both of these moves addressed a serious need (shooting), but neither maneuver came across as a bona fide long-term solution. Vasquez has only one...

Timberwolves Interested in Greivis Vasquez?

Apparently the guard was quoted as saying so in his home country of Venezuela. Greivis Vasquez in a press conference in Venezuela said the Rockets and the Timberwolves are interested in him, as per @basketvinotinto— Sportando (@sportando) June 22, 2015 Vasquez, who played for the Toronto Raptors last season primarily in a back up role, has one season left on his contract at $6.6M.  As Doogie Wolfson pointed out, trading Canadian Anthony Bennett for him might make some sense, since the Raps have expressed interest in a Canadian player and Amir Johnson and Tyler Hansborough are both free...

Raptors Player Review: General Greivis Vasquez

Greivis Vasquez was one of the top backup Point Guards in the league in his first season with the Raptors, but after a tumultuous 2nd year in Toronto, it's unclear how he fits on this roster. I want to love Greivis Vasquez. Of course it's tongue-in-cheek when I call him "The General", but the Raptors are a more fun team when Vasquez is doing well. The way I evaluate him will never be free of bias after reading this story by Bruce Arthur about GV's time in Maryland. How can you NOT love Greivis? He runs about as fast as I do, has as little muscle mass on a professional athlete as I've ever...
