2010 ANALYSIS
Bosh saved the best season of his career for his contract year. Statistically, he is the #1 PF in the entire league. Much of that was due to his high usage rate, however, and his production will dip if he decides to play next to LeBron, Wade, or another star next season.

FUTURE
Bosh is widely considered the 3rd best free agent of the 2010 class and possibly a max level player. He is unlikely to re-sign with the Raptors given their inability to put a winning team around him, though I have a feeling the team will be able to get something for him in a sign and trade. Potential destinations: Atlanta, Dallas, LA Clippers, LA Lakers, Memphis, Miami, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, and Phoenix.

2010 ANALYSIS
Jack fit in well in Toronto, improving his scoring an PG skills during a down year for Jose Calderon. Jack even managed to crack the starting lineup for a period of time, though he is probably best suited for a reserve role.

FUTURE
Jack is signed for the next 3 years to a reasonable contract. He could become a starter if the team trades Calderon, but as already stated, he isn't a high-end option and is best suited to a 6th/7th man role.

2010 ANALYSIS
I thought the massive contract Turkoglu signed last year was far too much for a player who really only had two good seasons out of his entire career, and he didn't exactly prove me wrong. Turkoglu was heavily criticized this season, particularly when news broke that he was out partying the same night he called out sick. His play was down across the board and he complained about not getting enough touches despite not doing much with them. IMO, the Raptors decided they wanted to be the worst defensive team in the league the moment they signed him to replace Shawn Marion.

FUTURE
Turkoglu is signed for four more years in Toronto, for better or worse. I do think he'll rebound somewhat next season, but that'll be mostly due to him getting more touches on a Bosh-less team.

2010 ANALYSIS
I had a feeling Calderon wouldn't fit in very well with Turkoglu and I wasn't mistaken. Calderon had a down year due to injuries, chemistry, and a decline in his own play. His defense was absolutely atrocious all year long and he is the main reason the Raptors are abominably bad on that end.

FUTURE
The player who once looked like the next Steve Nash will need to focus on not becoming the next Sarunas Jasikevikius. He is signed for three more seasons, but the Raptors may decide to pull the plug once Bosh is gone.

2010 ANALYSIS
I'll leave this one short and to the point: If Eddy Curry could shoot threes, he'd be Andrea Bargnani.

FUTURE
It's worth noting that Bargnani rates 72 overall at PF - it will likely (read: hopefully) be the position he mans next season. His rebounding just will not work at center, and he doesn't have anywhere close to the defensive ability required to anchor a defense.

2010 ANALYSIS
Johnson continued to attack the basket on both ends, and was the Raptors top defensive player throughout the year. While his quickness is a blessing, he'll need to bulk up at some point going forward if he's going to hang with NBA regulars on a consistent basis.

FUTURE
I think Amir will re-sign if Bosh leaves, as minutes will certainly be available, but his foul rate is much too high for him to be anything more than a high-energy sixth man. He's still only 23 years old, with plenty of room to grow. If he ends up starting next to Bargnani next season, it's not the absolute worst case scenario, but it will be disappointing.

2010 ANALYSIS
Wright was Toronto's top perimeter defender, but that's not exactly saying much. He's only slightly better than average, and isn't much of an offensive player. Still, he has a place in this league as a 9th/10th man.

FUTURE
Wright probably won't be re-signed by the team, as they can give his minutes to DeRozan next season.

2010 ANALYSIS
Banks was suprisingly efficient in the time he got this season, rebounding from a subpar 2009 that put him in the limited bench role he's in today (only 22 games and 244 minutes!). Given the sorry state of the Raptors defense, it's tough to believe he didn't get more PT, even at SG where he'd probably be a better option than Marco Belinelli.

FUTURE
Banks still has one more year left on the ridiculous contract Bryan Colangelo (then of the Phoenix Suns) gave him. Banks is likely looking at Europe after that, because he's too good to be a 3rd string and his defense isn't valued enough by NBA teams (despite the fact that Lindsey Hunter played in this league until he was freakin 40).

2010 ANALYSIS
Weems went from nobody to starting SG on a near-playoff team. We knew he was an athlete, but we didn't know he could actually score with reasonable efficiency (despite the utter lack of three point range).

FUTURE
As good as Weems showed us he was, one would hope the organization still views him as a backup. I would think the offseason was a disappointment if he's starting on opening night next season.

2010 ANALYSIS
Nesterovic had to be one of the worst uses of a Bi-Annual Exception ever. Teams can only use the BAE every two years, and the Raps opted to use it on a player they gave a grand total of 413 minutes to all season. Nesterovic looked slower on defense than he did in his previous Toronto stint, but it's still tough to believe they went with Bargnani at center as frequently as they did.

FUTURE
I would re-sign Nesterovic simply because I expect Bargnani to be the starting PF next season and Toronto will need the depth. If not, there will be other teams willing to give him a bench role.

2010 ANALYSIS
DeRozan's rookie season was mostly a struggle. He handle and jumpshot aren't good enough to create his own offense, and at 20 years old, his understanding of defense is not high. He was handed a starting role for most of the year but lost it to his friend Weems late in the year.

FUTURE
D.D. projects as a starter down the line, but he has a lot to learn until that time comes. A bench role next season will be good for him.

Belinelli was expected to have a prominent role in Toronto but once again disappointed for all the same reasons he did in Golden State - erratic shooting and poor defense.

FUTURE
If you can't beat out Antoine Wright, Demar DeRozan, or Sonny Weems for minutes, your long term future isn't the NBA. Belinelli will spend one more season in Toronto and if he doesn't show any improvement it's back to Europe for him.

2010 ANALYSIS
O'Bryant has yet to get much of a chance to play in the NBA, which is a shame, because I don't think he's much worse than most other backups. He's athletic for his size, can block a shot, a decent mid-range shot, and a fair post repetoire (for a backup). His skillset isn't that far off from Dan Gadzuric, who earned himself a sizable contract with his play on the court.

FUTURE
Honestly it's not looking good for POB. While he'll only be 24 next year, it's unknown if any team still sees any potential in him. He's looking at training camp gigs, the D-League, or possibly Europe.

2010 ANALYSIS
Dorsey was signed at the tail end of the season after Bosh got hurt, but he never got into a game with the Raptors. In limited minutes with the Rockets and Kings, Dorsey showed he could rebound the ball at this level but not much else.

FUTURE
Dorsey will go to summer league and training camp with the Raptors, who hope that he can fill a rebounding/defense role on the team next season. They'll certainly need it after this year's mess in those areas. Any progress he makes would allow the team to move Evans in a trade this summer.

great work rashidi, who's next?

Shelb said...

Thanks man.

I agree with most comments except on Bargnani. His rebounding is bad, but also suffers playing center. His man to man defense is pretty good and his blocking is top 20 in the league. I wouldn't compare him to Eddy Curry just yet.

About Rasho being a waste of the Bi-Annual Exception... completely agree. I talked about that on RealGM afew weeks ago. Of all years to use the BAE on nothing... oay.

I've given up hope that Bosh is coming back once the team started nosediving post All Star Weekend. Although, there is still an outside chance if Colangelo can pull something off.

Anonymous said...

In all of those potential destinations for Bosh, you leave out Chicago? That's just silly, Rashidi.

could you the hornets next for the final ratings? thanks a lot! :)

What do you people use for team sliders, do you use the 2K sliders or do you adjust them?

Sweet, Rashidi. Here's hoping that time would be kind to you so you can finish listing all the teams.

these are terrific, thank you rashidi. i'd love to see magic, spurs, thunder and warriors.

Steve said...

How about not listening to these guys and just list the teams in order. It'll be more organized and would feel like you are going through each team faster. You pick random teams guys ask for then youll feel pressed for time. Remember youre the one who did the ratings not them.

minor corrections: derozen wears #10, belinelli switched to #0.

I'm only posting eliminated teams right now.

I've done two east teams already and should probably cover a west team next but nothings set in stone.

Rashidi said...

Also, thanks for the # corrections. They should be correct in the roster presuming those were the default values. That's the one thing I forgot to review for each player this time.

The jersey numbers are indeed correct on the roster.
