Five Reasons Why The Raptors Should Not Re-Sign Pops Mensah-Bonsu!

Brad NortonCorrespondent IAugust 1, 2009

Alright, so I admit in PMB's short time as a raptor I liked him, but it's time to get real here there are so many better players out there that the raptors can possibly sign to the final roster spot.

Hopefully, this article can help you realize that PMB is not going to improve this squad at all and might even make it worse. This is the article where i am per say going to rip on Pops Mensah-Bonsu. But, I will do my best to not exagerate and just give straight facts.

At No. 5.I don't even think Bryan will fill that final roster spot via free agency. As he'll probably get a two for one or three for two trade done.

4. It would be a stupid move because he'd be lucky if he saw two minutes of playing time and he would become Marcus Banks getting paid to sit on the bench. That equals $5+ million in wasted money.

3. This one is about the simplest one and it's that the Raptors need a backup Small Forward and not a fourth string Power Forward. Honestly, if Chris Bosh and Reggie Evans were to go down with injuries they would move Bargnani to the four and have Rasho as the starting five.

2. With all the guys being waived and all the guys who have yet to be signed. The raptors could easily convince at least one or two better players and better fits to their squad at a one year deal than PMB.

1. He was amazing for the first three games he played as a Raptor. But, after that you could tell why the Mavericks and Spurs did not re-sign him and barely had him playing and the Mavs just had his rights and he rarely made an appearance on their roster. He actually missed like two or three wide open dunks in the games he was a Raptor. 

I look forward to all you PMB fans comments.
