Josh Lewenberg: A couple Raptors roster/rotation notes based on the depth chart I just tweeted (obviously a lot can change between now & opening night). 1) Raptors signed Sullinger with the intention of starting him at the 4. Not set in stone but it’s his job to lose, I’m told. Like last year, Patrick Patterson may end up playing bulk of PF mins but, rightly or wrongly, they believe he’s better suited coming off bench. 2) Lucas Nogueira is expected to get first crack at earning backup C mins, given experience, but leash wont be long. Jakob Poeltl could push him in camp.
He spent that time in intensive workouts with John Lucas, lost weight, improved his conditioning, and let it all unravel during the season. According to a league source, his weight soared over 300 pounds. It amounted to self-destructive behavior in a contract year, and now that the Celtics power forward has joined Toronto on a one-year, $6 million contract, he’s back on the proving ground. To hear Sullinger’s agent tell it, the 24-year-old power forward admits to the error of his ways. “Jared understands that if he had controlled his situation better, his options would have been better,” David Falk said Tuesday.
