Developing a consistent three-point shooter or two isn’t going to fix all that ails the Toronto Raptors but it will at least get their offence back up to speed.

The chances of that happening at some point over the next 10 games are slim to none, but we’ve already been talking about 2013-14

Raps for some time.

If there is to be growth in that area, in all likelihood that growth is going to have to come from within with little to no wiggle room under the cap and a dearth of trade commodities unless someone is expecting Bryan Colangelo or whoever is steering the ship to somehow turn Andrea Bargnani into a valuable trade chip.
