Toronto Brass Has High Praise For Bargnani

Globe and Mail - Maurizio Gherardini, the new assistant general manager of the Toronto Raptors , knows Andrea Bargnani as well as anyone, as he was the GM of Benetton Treviso.

"What I can tell you is, first of all . . . he's much bigger than people think," Gherardini said on Monday. "He's a seven-footer with no shoes on. He's not 225 [pounds], he's 246 to 248 right now. He's got a great body. That's besides the talent. It's not by coincidence that he was voted the top young European basketball player this year.

"He started the season as a 15-minute player for us and he ended up playing 32, 34 minutes as a starter. We started the season with basically nothing to expect. We ended up winning the championship with Bargnani [being] very consistent."

Well the new assistant probably has the best word about him. I guess you know what that means Raptors' fans.

I've seen this guy play and he looks good. I just wish Raps make a good pick.

Well Chris doesn't want Bargnani he wants LaMarcus Aldridge, he was trainning with Aldridge and was very impress during thier work outs, but I'm sure after a couple of games playing together, they'll get used to each other as well. Also I agree it really helps that we have the new Assistant manager, he can tell us a lot about Bargnani.

I wonder if Chris Bosh would have been equally impressed if he worked out with Bargnani. Now that the Raptors have Nesterovich, Aldridge seem as big as a lock to me for the Raptors.
