John Shurna

Obviously I was impressed with Caboclo and Nogieras abillity to play smart basketball within the system and show the great upside each player possesses but I was even more impressed with Shurna. Ive always loved this guy since his Northwestern days and Im surprised he isnt in the league.

Hes been playing in the ACB on a team with two talented gaurds Devoe Joseph and Guillume Vives (a player who is now on NBA radars). He is more then just a three point specialist as he is deceptively athletic and a smart player. Reminds me of a bigger Anthony Morrow or more athletic Jason Kapono.

I would like to see him added to the roster pending the next few games. I think he can at least provide the same value as a Steve Novak from last years Toronto sqaud. Excited to see him play today.

Form is vomit inducing but he

Form is vomit inducing but he can shoot it. Wouldn't have any problem with him on the Raptors roster.

Shurna is a crafty scorer,

Shurna is a crafty scorer, and quite frankly, a guy built well to produce in the Summer League. He has an NBA translatable skill, in shooting, and now he's got some pro experience overseas, but I don't know if he'll end up cracking a roster. I would think his play thus far would be enough to nab an invite to Toronto, or some other team's pre-season camp.
