Well I watch a lot of basketball and to be honest the way that the Piston's starters have played a ton of minutes over the years...he barely got of the bench and when did come off the bench it wasnt enough time to actually see what this guy can do. from what I see, I think the guy is got some talent but going to toronto should open up some opportunity for him..

but thats all depending on if they keep Peterson, and if he could beat out Graham for minutes which I doubt...and your looking at Calderon who will get at least 30 minutes off the bench filling in as a point guard or a off guard....so we all might not even see him play in toronto at all.

not consistent enough to play starters' minutes; versatile (dribbling, defense, passing, slashing, occasionally shooting) but not great at anything. Not the smartest basketball player either...
His best chance is to play the role of the spark from the bench, either on offense or defense.
I think he's well worth a couple of 2nd rounders

He should be a pretty good player for them IMO. From what I've seen he's athletic, can handle/pass a little bit, and he's a good defender. He has talent and he's still young. He should get about 25 MPG for the Raptors next year IMO now that he's not playing behind Prince/Hamilton and he'll have a pass 1st PG. I think that was a great deal for the Raptors.

He is not an All star but can be a good solid player. Detroit never used his skills, they never ran any play for him just stand on the conner and shoot and then go and play defense. If he get more involve in an offense that fits him, he will produce if they give him consistent minutes.

Remeber Drazen Petrovic he got stock behind Drexler in Portland, once he get out he explode as a player. i dont think he as good as him but he can definitly get better.

^^^Thank you for that smart post. I'm glad I'm not the only one that realized that Flip used him in the worst way possible. They never ran plays for him. He sometimes would go 4-5 minutes on the court without even touching the ball. He was told to just sit on the 3pt line and wait for a pass. But the guy can handle the ball, pass and is pretty creative. As you've seen on some youtube clips he can finish pretty well and with authority. His jumpshot is inconsistent and he lacks confidence. He's been buried behind Tay/Rip for 3 years. If nothing else he defends really well, rebounds, plays hard and is still fairly young.

I don't know why I'm on here talking about him so much but I see some real tlaent in him and it wouldn't surprise me if he broke out.

He touched the ball plenty. He is turnover prone and it limits his opportunities to the basket.

Delfino was a good pickup, especially for 2 second round picks. That adds another decent shooter for Toronto. Detroit didn't give him any minutes, and he still showed signs of talent.

Delfino has good potiencial thats why people are saying he will be good. He didn't really have a role on the pistons so now he can make an impression as a great bench player or more. The Raps are just getting better every year picking up great pieces that will bring this team to the top ranked teams soon.
