Raptors Reportedly Sign Maccabi's Anthony Parker

Raptors Reportedly Sign Maccabi's Anthony Parker
11th July, 2006 - 9:30 am
Draftexpress.com - The Toronto Raptors have made some unorthodox moves this offseason and another one is abound with the reported signing of Macabbi Tel Aviv star Anthony Parker.

One year after the Indiana Pacers imported Macabbi's star Sarunas Jasikevicius, the Raptors bring in the explosive 31 year old Parker.

The Raptors are reportedly paying $500,000 of Parker's $1.5 million buyout with the team and will pay Parker $12 million over three years.

Parker was drafted with the 21st pick overall out of Bradley University by the New Jersey Nets in the 1997 NBA Draft, but he has not played in the NBA since the 1999-2000 season.

The 6'6" Parker will most likely be the Raptors' starting small forward.

hes been solid in europe. we'll see how the transition goes. i always felt it was his 'tweener' size that turned away NBA gm's.

I thought NBA teams were limited to paying $350,000 towards contract buyouts. Am I wrong??

I like the Raptors aggressive approach this offseason....then I think of Rasho and realize how desperate they are to improve at any cost.

TJ Ford
Rasho
Bargnani
Bosh
???

not bad so far

I doubt that, I think he will back up Bargnani and Mo'Pete

PG: TJ Ford/ Calderon/ Parker
SG: Mo'Pete/Parker
SF: Bargnani/ Parker/ Graham
PF: Bosh/ Humphries/ Bargnani
CT: Rasho/ Sow/ Bosh

That's were I see their various players getting playing time
