4 Has A New Home.

The Raptors introduced Terrance Ross and Quincy Acy to the media. It was pretty much your standard stuff. The one thing that was note worthy is the Quincy Acy will wear number 4. Yeah so get the duck tape or masking tape and if you haven't burned your old Chris Bosh Jersey you can put ACY on that tape. Trust me though in saying after awhile you will want to buy the Real McCoy. Acy said in the presser that on his AAU Team Bosh had wore that number in the past and it was handed out to the better players after he was gone. Much like the Dallas Cowboys hand out the number 88 to the next great wide receiver. Even without playing a minute on the floor the fact Quincy walks in the door and takes that number tell you a lot about this kid. He has the chance to be a fan favourite the likes of guys like the JYD, Matt Bonner and yes Reggie Evans. He has some swagger attached to a game that is all blue collar. Toronto is going to love this guy. There was once a time you might have though 4 would hang in the rafters. It likely isn't going too now. However it maybe getting a lot of love for years to come on the back of Quincy Acy.

In terms of Ross he was just as surprised as everyone else that Raptors ended up picking him and he will be wearing number 31 for the Raptors that does not have any really history that I can recall. Both will get there first chance to show what they can do in few weeks when the Raptors hit the court in Las Vegas for Summer League.
