08:06 AM ET 03.27 | Credit Bryan Colangelo for spanning the globe in search of ways to help Toronto's roster. The president and GM of [the Raptors] talked with the three NBA prospects of Virtus at the end of practice: Gigi Datome, Gani Lawal and Jordan Taylor. Gigi Datome was the main reason of Colangelo's trip in the Italian capital. The captain of Virtus Roma could move to the NBA next season, despite one year remaining on his contract with Virtus. "It has been great to see Datome practicing and verify his leadership and his positive influence on the team. ... He has certainly caught the attention of NBA scouts and he has already expressed his desire to play in the NBA," [said Colangelo].

Credit Colangelo for thinking outside of the box. He knows that it is next to impossible to attract top tier talent to Toronto, so he is using other avenues. So far he has been dead on:

Look at Andrea Bargnarni, Linus Kleiza, Anthony Parker, Jonas valunciunas, and Jose Garbajosa to name a few.

I wish he would just draft some tough North American kids to give this team a heart. They have been soft for forever. Bargnani is an embarassment. he is a coward, afraid of his own shadow. They need interior toughness. They do not need more Euros playing non-contact basketball.
