NBA PM: Grizz Need Guards | HOOPSWORLD
Clearing Up Raptors Situation: After it was mentioned in this space yesterday that Toronto Raptors free agents Carlos Delfino and Pops Mensah-Bonsu were no longer restricted because the team had to withdraw the Qualifying Offers to make the Hedo Turkoglu acquisition, a couple people questioned that information. And no wonder, since multiple media outlets still have both players on their free agent lists as restricted.

This means that they can still sign-and-trade either player, and they have the applicable Bird Rights for either one.
