All of the excitement about John Salmons coming to Toronto voluntarily and it being a reflection of the drastic change in perception of the Raptors is for not. Salmons has apparently had a change of heart and decided that the 5 year $23 million dollar deal was not in his best interests. Why? What spurred this on? We may never know the reason but we do know that the Raps now have a roster spot for a backcourt player.
Colangelo has some work to do now as Salmons was a multi-dimensional player and the Raps are now left scouring a weak free agent market. We will be breaking down some options in the next day or so.
