Greg Stiemsma‘s contract with the Raptors is partially guaranteed for $25K, Hoops Rumors has learned. That puts him on equal financial footing with teammates Jordan Hamilton and Will Cherry, who have partial guarantees for the same amount. The three appear to be jockeying for a single opening-night roster spot, since Toronto has 13 full guarantees and a $5MM partial guarantee with Amir Johnson. Hoops Rumors

Though centre Greg Stiemsma (below) has been seen as the favourite to earn Toronto’s final roster spot since Day 1, the other two contenders are still in the mix. Head coach Dwane Casey said Sunday that swingman Jordan Hamilton and point guard Will Cherry have also impressed the team and no decision is forthcoming. “We’re not in a hurry whatsoever,” Casey said. “All three men have done an excellent job in practice. Will Cherry is as tough a little competitor as you can find. Jordan Hamilton is a great scorer and really fighting on the defensive end and Greg Stiemsma is a solid, solid big man, veteran big man who has done some great things in the post. It may go down to the wire, the last day of camp because those guys have deserved it.” Toronto Sun

Nogueira moved to Spain in 2009, spending five years there. National Post

His less-than-inspiring summer league performance is starting to make more sense: “He’s got a very serious strain, a groin strain,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “It’s for real. The MRI showed us. It’s a very tedious thing. What we don’t want to do is rush him back where he re-injures it and then he’s out for another eight weeks or something. It’s something we have to be very careful with.” RaptorsRepublic.com
