Via @RealGM, Boozer might have been the last amnesty ever, or at least of this CBA. http://t.co/0cARKhvIZB

Eric Smith

I know I'm not the 1st to say this...but as great as the #mlb all star game was (esp. for Jeter), the league blew it by not honoring Gwynn

Eric Koreen

Being on the West Coast is awesome for someone from the East, Twitterly speaking. It's like I get to watch the world die.

Josh Lewenberg

Noel block on Bennett from yesterday, complete with elite reaction from @Holly MacKenzie and I on press row: instagram.com/p/qe5crCRh5I/

Josh Lewenberg

That said, I'll be heading back to Toronto tonight. Gambled out, I'll play it safe and take the Cavs over Jazz for 2014 Summer League title

Josh Lewenberg

After going 1-2 in preliminary round, the Raptors (19th seed) will face Houston (14th) at 8:30pm ET tomorrow. Winner gets Wiggins/CLE Thurs

Ryan Wolstat

If Raptors win tomorrow will play Cleveland. That could be interesting. Sadly, I would no longer be in Vegas.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors will play Houston tomorrow night 8:30 ET to open double elimination tourney

#spellcheck RT @nbacanada The one thing @Anthony Bennett misses most about Canada is @TimHortons [...] & extra large hot chic

No truth to rumour NBA’s instant replay centre will be @Ben Golliver control room.

Get to know Lucas "Bebe" Nogueira, the Raptors' other Brazilian prospect and inevitable Toronto fan favourite: tsn.ca/nba/story/?id=…

MT @magicjohnson A team everybody has to watch out for in the East are the Raptors. They have the talent to sneak up & win the Eastern Conf.

Khem Birch the Canadian #44 has his defensive stance down pat! In 12 mins of action has 5 pts in 12 mins of action. http://t.co/2lahMhZ72f

Magic backing the Raptors.

Payal Doshi

On the #CanadianWatch Khem Birch is putting in work with the @Washington Wizards with 5 & 5 on 2/2 from the field in the 1st Q. #summerleague

Ryan Wolstat

Forgot to link to this on Bebe Nogueira from earlier. Updates on him and Bruno coming later: torontosun.com/2014/07/15/beb…

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson was wearing a bucket hat, perhaps dating myself I said he would fit in EPMD DeMar made fun of the hat Amir made fun of his hair

"This is a very special summer for CDN basketball. For anybody that's here to see it in Vegas can't be anything but just so proud” Roy Rana

Paul Jones

Funny how this news didn't get nearly traction negative side did when it 1st happened. Drunk driving charges dropped tinyurl.com/q77rcwr

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors brass/coaches makes it clear in every interview on or off record: Bruno will take some time, but has legit shot to be very good

Josh Lewenberg

Remains to be seen what he can do on the court but Nogueira's personality is truly refreshing. Not a disingenuous bone in his 7-foot frame

Josh Lewenberg

Nogueira was adopted but said he has a great/supportive family. He's the youngest of 3 siblings, hence the nickname "Bebe". "I feel blessed"

Josh Lewenberg

Nogueira: "I had bad moments in my life but everybody have bad moments so I think, ok, I can be sad sometimes but 95% I want to be happy"

Josh Lewenberg

More Bebe GOLD: "The NBA only has 450 jobs for seven billion [people]. I have one job, so I don't have reason to stay sad"

Josh Lewenberg

Focus for Bruno is getting comfortable in role/playing D. Mermuys was pleased to see him put team on his shoulders but isnt ready for that

Josh Lewenberg

Casey, Nurse and Rana spent over 30mins running drills with Bruno. Coaches said the rook was in good spirits today, ready to work/move on

Ryan Wolstat

Strange, random note: Bebe is quite good at math

Dwight Buycks

Thankful for everything..

Ryan Wolstat

More on Bruno, am told main reason he was so incensed/worked up last night was because he hated being down by 30.

Ryan Wolstat

Opposite of Dion Waiters in about every way, DeMar DeRozan says he is cool with taking fewer minutes with bench so strong to stay fresher.

Payal Doshi

Love this! RT @Ryan Wolstat: Roy Rana, Dwane Casey and Nick Nurse currently running shooting drill with Bruno Caboclo

Vasquez, speaking in Toronto, said it was a tough year to be an RFA but had other offers he seriously considered, happy to be back w/ Raps

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe told us he has played against Valanciunas. Raved about him and his skills. Said he does get under JV’s skin so practices will be fun.

Ryan Wolstat

It will be a crime if Raptors don’t put Bebe beside Valanciunas in locker room. Salmons is gone so stall is open. Comedy potential unlimited

Ryan Wolstat

Or all Bruno, all the time?

Ryan Wolstat

So two days left here for me. Are people sick of reading about Bruno yet, want to read about guys who won’t make team now + DeAndre Daniels?

Eric Koreen

That caps my Summer League writings. You can find 'em all here: sports.nationalpost.com/author/ekoreen/

Ryan Wolstat

Trevor Booker to Utah. Another nice pickup. Good off-season, besides huge Hayward overpay. If can land star beside Exum eventually, solid.

Rodney Hood wants to enter the three-point competition. Shooting 7-for-9 from deep

Eric Koreen

Oh no I'm accidentally watching summer league

Ryan Wolstat

Getting Dante Exum and Rodney Hood in one draft is pretty good.

Eric Koreen

What is a Todd Frazier?

Ryan Wolstat

Utah has some nice pieces going forward. Need another star with Exum to be a factor, but building decently.

Eric Koreen

Also. A dude at this local establishment is wearing a Vancouver grizzlies hat. Again: big day

Ryan Wolstat

Eric Griffin out, Rudy Gobert in as King of Summer League

Eric Koreen

Yes, I caught it, despite twilight.

Eric Koreen

Random stranger just threw me a frisbee as I was walking around streets of San Diego. Big day for me

Ryan Wolstat

Nik Stauskas out to buck the stereotypes + more on Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Nick Wiggins: torontosun.com/2014/07/14/sta…

Ryan Wolstat

And Gobert answers by doing the same on Giannis. This is fun. Far better than Raptors game.

Ryan Wolstat

Greek Freak just paid Rudy Gobert back with a huge jam

Ryan Wolstat

And thrown down a put-back while barely jumping RT @outsidethenba: gobert has already swatted the crap out of giannis and jabari.

Ryan Wolstat

Exum no slouch in wingspan department either. Has Bruno arms.

Ryan Wolstat

Attack of the killer wingspans. Rudy Gobert has a few inches on Giannis and just swatted him while yelling, “get that out of here."

Ryan Wolstat

Exum going for that 95 ball-handling rating in NBA2K. Pretty slick.

Ryan Wolstat

So, Bruno thought he was ejected, @Josh Lewenberg was told. That’s another reason he was so upset.

Josh Lewenberg

Told Bruno thought he was ejected after getting T'd up, which could explain emotions/why he went straight for the bench.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors and Estudiantes continue to work on a buyout for Lucas Nogueira.

Ryan Wolstat

Is Nerlens Noel what Alonzo Mourning would have been like at Summer League?

Payal Doshi

There is this special Canadian connect at work as Anthony Bennett & Andrew Wiggins exchange words ending with, “I got you man!”

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe to Bruno after the dunk? "Keep playing, think about next play. If you're thinking about last play, you are giving up. Never give up."

Ryan Wolstat

“He's out of luck because he plays on same team as Terrence Ross and DeMar DeRozan, be careful in practice, everyone will dunk on you."

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe was howling by time he finished story about how Bruno has to get used to being dunked on. "NBA is worse than summer league man …"

Ryan Wolstat

Tweet went over heads,so to clarify, was joking about Bennett being a rookie since guy we saw last year was not Bennett.

Eric Koreen

20 minutes in San Diego is enough to remind you living elsewhere is dumb. I'm dumb.

Payal Doshi

I’m ready to see him potentially win it! RT @SMoore_90: Joey Bats is ready to roll #HRDerby

Ryan Wolstat

I hope Embiid and Noel have long careers. If both healthy, in time, will be silly good front-court.

Ryan Wolstat

Noel just picked up his fourth swat of the game, blocking Anthony Bennett, who took being the No. 1 pick away from him. Noel’s a beast
