On Sunday, June 22, 2014, over 900 amateur athletes, 100 volunteers and 75 families from Camp Trillium spent a sports-filled day at the second annual MLSE Team Up Challenge presented by Ford and your Toronto Area Ford Dealers. Toronto Raptors alumnus Jamaal Magloire teamed up with the amateur athletes at BMO Field to provide game day coaching.
They are keeping the gang together. With Dwane Casey re-signed for three years as the head coach of the Toronto Raptors, the team will bring back his entire staff, according to NBA sources. Assistant coaches Nick Nurse, Bill Bayno, Tom Sterner, Jesse Mermuys and Jama Mahlalela have all agreed to new deals that mirror Casey’s contract. Toronto’s Jamaal Magloire remains in a position that combines assistant coach-basketball development and community relations.
Do Garnett’s comments bother you? “Hell, nah,” Magloire drawled. “He’s a talker who can’t back it up.” After dropping the mic, he swiveled away. Then he turned back and waved a finger the size of a jumbo hot dog. “And you can print that.” Jamaal Magloire. Canada’s hype man. “It’s going to be a new frontier,” coach Dwane Casey said of the anticipated atmosphere in Brooklyn.

Magloire spent last season in a Raptors uniform, becoming the first Canadian to play for the club. He was born in Toronto and attended high school at Eastern School of Commerce. A veteran of 12 NBA seasons, Magloire owns career averages of 7.2 points, 6.5 rebounds and 22.9 minutes in 680 outings. He appeared in 46 postseason contests, averaging 7.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 19.8 minutes.
The Toronto Raptors announced Sunday that Canadian-born centre Jamaal Magloire has joined the organization as a basketball development consultant and community ambassador. Magloire will assist with player development programs, help the coaching staff with individual skill development of players, and appear at organizational events and functions.
In the event recently waived centre Jamaal Magloire does not find a new NBA home and hangs up his sneakers, the Raptors would love to keep the Toronto native around. “To me, what he did for our team last year is irreplaceable. He started the foundation of toughness, of the defensive approach, communication, the whole nine yards, he started that,” Casey said of Magloire. “That’s why he’s going to be a heck of an asset. He and Bryan (Colangelo) are going to sit down and talk about his role with us. We want him around, working with the players and in the community because he is what the NBA is about.”
Doug Smith: #raptors waiving J. Magloire, they’ll try to find a deserved place in organization for him when he clears on Monday. Roster now set at 15.
McGuire’s going to have at least a partial guarantee on his one-year contract, I’m told Jamaal Magloire’s going to have at least a partial guarantee on his deal and that brings to 16 the number of guys who are assured at least some money, regardless of whether they stick or not.
Yahoo! Sports first reported the agreement was near and that McGuire had cancelled a workout with Brooklyn. McGuire has shown an ability to guard multiple positions effectively in the past, which endeared him to head coach Dwane Casey. The Raptors had planned to extend Toronto-born centre Jamaal Magloire a partially guaranteed training camp offer, but adding a wing player with the 15th and final available roster spot made more sense considering Toronto’s depth up front.
Ryan Wolstat: If you’re dying for some Raptors news, Jamaal Magloire is getting a non-guaranteed camp invite. Team has an open roster spot
Eric Smith: From my chat w/ Jamaal Magloire yesterday: Happy to be working w/ @canbball & hopes to do so long-term; thrilled to be working w/ Nash et al
Vincent Goodwill: NBA’s dirtiest players, according to the players: Reggie Evans, KG, Ron-Ron, Jeff Foster, CP3, Gerald Henderson, K-Love, Kurt Thomas, Varejao, Eduardo Najera, Ryan Hollins, Dwight Howard, Battier, Jamaal Magloire and Raja Bell…any surprises?
Toronto coach Dwane Casey doesn’t disagree. He wants Magloire back with the Raptors next season. “That’s our plan,” Casey said. “We haven’t really sat down and talked about it. We haven’t made an offer to him. But that’s my hope and my plan.”
Raptors center Jamaal Magloire looked at the Thunder bench and made a throat-slashing gesture as he walked to his bench. Though Magloire and Perkins stood side-by-side during free-throw attempts immediately after the timeout, there were no further incidents. “Hit them back, and hit them first,” Magloire said of his physical style. “For me, as a player, I have been around for a very long time and I know all the guys I am playing against. I know their tendencies and I know their habits. I’m one not to back down. As a result, what I find is it often happens to them and they back down. I just try to pass that on to my teammates.”

Dwane has been raving about Jamaal Magloire with respect to practice habits, teaching ability and leadership and I know they expect the same thing from Anthony Carter, who I’m told is a consummate pro who is familiar with Casey from the time they spent together in Minnesota and who can be an extension of a coach in the locker room and on the bench.
The Raptors are inching closer to adding their first Canadian player in franchise history. While no contracts can be signed until Friday afternoon — and Toronto fans know better than anyone that no NBA deal is done until it’s signed, sealed and delivered — Jamaal Magloire is poised to join the team and give it some much-needed front court depth. Magloire, the Toronto native about to enter his 12th NBA season, would be coming on a one-year, veteran minimum deal worth slightly more than $1 million a season as president and general manager Bryan Colangelo tries to maintain financial flexibility for a year from now.
Ira Winderman: Keep an eye on the Jamaals, namely Jamaal Magloire to the Raptors and the possibility of the Heat extending an invite to Jamaal Tinsley.
I keep hearing that Magloire, coming off his 11th NBA season, is on Toronto’s radar as a free agent; a big, veteran centre they could get for the minimum who might be good in practice and the odd game when his mixture of brawn and a willingness to bang some bodies around would help out.
Q: Assuming Miami signs a new starting center this summer, who will end up being the odd-man-out in the rotation? Haslem is expected to be healthy and will probably share a lot of minutes down low with Bosh. So between Joel, who has played great lately, and Pittman, who has already been promised minutes next season, which one gets left out of the rotation or traded away? — Fernando. A: Pittman has been promised nothing, with his contract not even guaranteed for next season. Besides that, there should be plenty of time for everyone, with Dampier and Magloire almost assuredly not back and Ilgauskas likely retiring.
Bill Reiter: Land Bibby or Murphy and Heat probably say goodbye to Jamaal Magloire. Land both guys and Carlos Arroyo probably gone too about
Magloire received calls from people pretending to act on Mataeo’s behalf. He got a text from someone purporting to be Sheran, asking to meet, and for money. “At the time, I did not even have Jamaal’s number,” Sheran says. One scammer even opened a fake Facebook page, using a family name, soliciting donations until the authorities shut it down. Contributions have slowed since the summer, but Sheran says Mataeo now gets good medical care through programs like Children’s Aid and Safe Haven, and is doing as well as can be expected. She still has one hope. Well, two. First, that her nephew can finally meet the Heat center. “I didn’t bring Mataeo to the services,” Sheran says. “It would have been too much for him, with the crying and the crowd.” Second, that she can spend a half-hour sometime with Magloire. “One day,” Sheran says. “But I know he’s very busy.”
The temptation is to trace it back to 2001. That’s when his half-brother Justin Shephard, with whom he shared a father, was murdered. Justin was 19, four years younger than Jamaal, and more advanced in basketball than his big brother had been. “His desire was to join Jamaal in the NBA,” Justin’s mother, Audette, says of her only child. Toronto’s police offered a $50,000 reward, which Jamaal matched, but the crime remains unsolved. Magloire, however, insists that experience wasn’t his inspiration. Nor, necessarily, were the shared Southern Caribbean roots – Magloire’s heritage traces to Trinidad. “That brings everybody closer to each other,” Sheran says. “If something happens to a Trinidadian, we say, ‘You all remember how the Trinidadian helped people from St. Lucia?’ Now this is how we think.” Magloire says not to over-think his motives. He’s long done charitable work in Toronto, including park events and scholarships. “I realize I can’t help everybody, but in situations where I know I can help somebody, I’m definitely going to try,” Magloire says.
Sheran had every reason to look away. Inside lay her 28-year-old sister, Lucita, stabbed to death, allegedly by a boyfriend who would be apprehended two days later. On its own, the murder would have been too much. The circumstances and consequences made it even crueler. Lucita Charles had moved from St. Lucia, where she was a teacher, to find better care for her son, Mataeo. He was confined to a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy. How could the family possibly pay for proper memorials in Toronto and St. Lucia? And, with Lucita gone, what would become of 7-year-old Mataeo? That first question ran through a total stranger’s mind, too, while he watched the news. The second question would run through it later. “It was very devastating to me,” Magloire says. “It really hit home.”
