Is there a dramatic game winner in the Raptors future?
Gains made some fans last season in Utah — highlighted by hitting a dramatic game winner — and put up good numbers, as evidenced by his PER of 17.3. This season he started out as a stopgap measure in Minnesota and was far less impressive.
The Raptors are looking for some point guard depth and Gaines is getting the first shot. If he plays like he did for 32 games in Utah last season he might stick for a while.
