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. Toronto Globe & Mail

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." Toronto Sun

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.

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." FOXSports Florida

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.

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.
