Raptors Re-assign Jawai to Idaho; Sign Douby to second 10-day

New, 7 comments

Well, this ought to be interesting.  The Raptors signed Quincy Douby to a second 10-day contract, sending Big Nate Jawai back to the Idaho Stampede.  Since Jawai hasn't appeared in a game since being called back up to the Toronto Raptors, there's not much new to report, so I'll look at what happened when he last appeared in Boise.

Jawai appeared in 10 games with the Stampede, starting nine. He averaged 12.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.2 blocks in 25 minutes per game. He posted two double-doubles, with personal bests of 21 points at Utah on March 16 and 10 rebounds on two occasions.  Nothing exceptional, really, but he was out of shape, so maybe he'll look better after having a chance to be back in Toronto where he had better workout facilities.  At least he didn't have to work out at the esteemed Boise Gold's Gym, among the many things he complained about after his last trip to Boise.

Wait, Jawai complained? Yes.  A lot.  About everything in Idaho - his teammates were mean to him, the guards wouldn't pass to him, and he just didn't get a fair chance to dominate while in Idaho.  Well, apparently he didn't get a fair chance in Toronto either because of the D-League, because former D-League dominator Pops Mensah-bonsu got plenty of playing time with Jawai on the bench, including the monster dunk pictured.

This should be interesting, to say the least.  Additional RU coverage after Jawai's last stint in Idaho herehere and here.
