The rumours were swirling and then the rumours just became a truth tonight. Pops Mensah-Bonsu was claimed off of waivers by the Toronto Raptors. Pops was signed as a free agent last season with the Raps and brought energy back to Toronto during the tail end of last year's dismal season. Time will tell on how he'll fit in the rotation with Reggie Evans, Amir Johnson and Rasho Nesterovic coming off of the bench but he's definitely a great addition to the squad.
I'm excited. He's a hard worker, he hustles and he's gots some hops.
