Bryan Colangelo, the GM for the Raptors, got a phone call. It was from an agent trying to sell him on a player and how he possessed qualities sorely missing from the Toronto roster this season, athleticism for one.
Colangelo had a number of other objections, but... the deal unsealer, in some ways, was a simple truth: the free agent in question cannot shoot.

"If a guy can't shoot, I generally say ... `I'm not sure he can play with us,'" Colangelo said. "It's just the way the game has evolved."

Is there anything else you have to think it might be Dahntay? Lord knows, the NBA has a long history of athletic players who couldn't shoot.

I think Dahntay shot 40% from 3 point and 75% from the line his senior year. Don't know how that stands in NBA-dom, though.

Last year, Dahntay shot (http://www.nba.com/playerfile/dahntay_jones/career_stats.html) 48% from the field, 42% from three and 79% from the line. I don't follow NBA stat much, but that seems pretty solid to me.
