By the time he came back to try out for the Toronto Raptors in 2004, the men who had acquired his rights one year earlier had been fired and replaced by new GM Rob Babcock and coach Sam Mitchell. Bonner was sitting in an office with them on the eve of the new season. He had outplayed several other candidates for Toronto’s final roster spot. “Rob said, ‘We want you on the team, but we can only give you a one-year unguaranteed rookie minimum contract,’ ” recalled Bonner. Babcock went onto explain that the Raptors’ needs at point guard could prevent Bonner from finishing the season with Toronto. Babcock also understood that Bonner was receiving interest from teams in Europe who could offer more money than the Raptors.
