Raptors Interested in Former Jasper?

New, comments

According to the Denver Post, the Raptors are interested in recently waived guard Luis Flores.

Flores' agent, Jerome Lewis, said that Toronto and Utah are both interested in his client.

Flores, a 6-2 guard, was selected 55th overall by Houston in the 2004 draft and then had his draft rights traded to Dallas. In August 2004, he was dealt to Golden State in the Erick Dampier deal. He appeared in 15 games with the Warriors before he was traded to Denver at the deadline.

While he can play the point, he is more of a scorer than a distributor. In his final year at Manhattan, he averaged 24.0 points a game, finishing fifth in the NCAA. His 26 points led the Jaspers to a bracket-busting first round victory over the Florida Gators in the 2004 NCAA tournament.

The Raptorshq.com staff has been fans of Flores since his days with Manhattan and we think it would be a nice fit if they could find room for him.
