Report: Edy Tavares to leave 905 and head for Spain

The Raptors 905 big man has reportedly gotten a better deal in Spain.

The times are fast in the G-League, and that's no different for the Raptors 905. It's been reported today that the big (and I mean, huge — he's 7'3") man is disembarking from Mississauga for a league of Spain (ACB, specifically).

Here we are:

If my Spanish is correct, Tavares appears set to join Real Madrid. Good for him, but bad for the 905. The team, which was set to rely on the reigning G-League Defensive Player of the Year to anchor their frontline, will now have to make up for the loss in size. (Here's hoping Kennedy Meeks is ready to go.)

And Edy, remember, there will always be a spot for you in Mississauga. Godspeed!
