Fred Jones Ready To Run With The Raptors

The Toronto Raptors held a press conference this afternoon to announce the signing of Fred Jones. The newest Raptor known for his high flying act sees himself as a perfect fit to Colangelo's system . ' What attracted me to Toronto is the style of play ' Indeed . Jones is known for leading Indiana's few fastbreak plays. ' He is a good finisher ' said Chris Bosh. Jones is a welcome addition to the Raptors. More than John Salmons who backed out of the verbal agreement with Colangelo to sign with the Sacramento Kings. I think B.C,. is lucky withj this welcome development .
Asked about the Indiana situation. ' I don't have a problem in Indiana but now I will be able to play an uptempo game like I did in college ' said the former Slam Dunk champion . ' I am from Portland and Damon Stoudamaire told me good things about Toronto. Talking of Portland , Alvin Williams , who is one of those the Raptors got in a trade with the Blazers for Stoudamaire , was waived by the Raptors early that day. One of the most popular Raptors because of his ability to play despite injuries , Williams was the longest serving Raptor. He underwent oprations in both knees 2 years ago and has not played except for a game or 2. So come the NBA season opener , expect Toronto to release its ' horses.'
Except Alvin of course.
Let's just say , Alvin is Barbaro !

Alvin : Me eutanished !

Alvin deserves to have his number retired. He sacrificed a lot for the team.

I don't think it makes any dofference if Colangelo is there or not. Salmons stayed out of TO like most ballers

The Raps let go of Alvin after he played for them in the past. To add insult , they gave his number to Jones !
