Toronto is bringing three players into training camp for a look to see if they can fill a role as the 15th player on the Raptors roster: center Greg Stiemsma, forward Jordan Hamilton and guard Will Cherry. Each player brings something different to the table and their real competition for a spot probably will not come from each other, but rather how well Head Coach Dwane Casey believes they can…
