Bryan Colangelo has made it no secret he likes Belinelli's game. Colangelo tried to get Belinelli in the 2007 NBA Draft, but Golden State picked him too early, drafting him #18th overall.
Belinelli averaged 8.9 points, 2.1 assists, and 1.9 rebounds in 21 minutes last season.
Overall, this is a HUGE steal. If Devean George played in Toronto next year, his minutes would have been extremely limited. To trade him for a guy who may be potentially be the 6th man, the Raptors certainly got the better end of this deal.
If I'm a Warriors fan, I'm outraged by this deal. Devean George doesn't bring much to the table, and is a much worse player than Belinelli.
Bryan Colangelo's magic keeps working. Belinelli will be another excellent piece off the bench. Considering Belinelli is a 2 man, I'm guessing Carlos Delfino won't be back in Toronto, but I'm fine with that. Belinelli, in my opinion, is a duplicate of Delfino, but at a much cheaper price--Belinelli only makes $1.5M next year. I'm guessing the Raptors will now bring back Pops Mensah-Bonsu. Pops brought a ton of energy off the bench last year, and I always liked his game. Pops would complete the roster, seeing as the Raptors have 1 spot left to fill.
Someone just give Bryan Colangelo EOY right now.
