The big news out of Ottawa today was the intrasquad scrimmage, which saw rookie DeMar DeRozan and rebounding machine Reggie Evans shine. Paul Jones at The FAN 590, Dino Nation Blog and Raptors Republic all live blogged the proceedings. You can read more at the Globe, National Post, Toronto Sun, and Toronto Star.

The FAN 590 also posted interviews with coaches Jay Triano and Alvin Williams, DeRozan, Antoine Wright, and Amir Johnson.

The Globe's Michael Grange dusted off the cobwebs over at From Deep, imploring Chris Bosh to become less of a brand and more of a person. Why, you ask? This might have something to do with it.

Despite being on the sidelines during training camp, the newly bulked up Bosh does have something to be proud of: He's joined an exclusive club.

The Score's Holly MacKenzie is killing the Raptors' training camp coverage with in-depth notes and an article on the crucial year for backup big man Patrick O'Bryant.

Eric Koreen of the National Post takes a look at the point guard position, the return of Rasho Nesterovic, and the Raptors' training camp work without the ball. Koreen also gets major props for putting vanity aside in the name of charity.

Croatian coach Jasmin Repesa -- considered one of the great minds of European basketball -- lends a helping hand at training camp.

You might not be surprised to learn that Kobe Bryant is ranked first in European jersey sales. Although it is a bit of a surprise to see Marco Belinelli's name 13th on that same list. Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon checked in at numbers eight and nine, respectively.

SLAM continues to remix past NBA Drafts. And while the Raptors weren't around to pick in 1994, there are a lot of former Raptors listed in this remix, including biggest bust Sharone Wright and second-round steal Voshon Lenard.
