    He's the spitting image of Andy. Imagine a team with Kid Autry, Jimmy Jr, Ethan Thompson and Sam Rautins. I had to take a look after reading the Leo article.

    It's funny though - so many Canadian players have gone to the US to play basketball, finish up high school etc - wonder if Sam is one of the first to head north to Canada for high school.

    Quick release. Curry influence?

    Andy had a lightning quick release too.

    Why did he go to Canada? Was it the coach being let go at JD? Did the entire Rautins family pick up and move north? It can't be the abundance of Tim Horton's as more of them are making their way across NY. Was he getting a jump on the "If Trump is elected President" thing?

    Can't we just offer him right now and make him our first 2018 commit? Maybe by the time he gets here people will have gotten their legacy not worth a scholarship gripes out of the way.

    Seriously though Andy's last 2 seasons show that bringing in a shooter who can then improve their all around skills can be an excellent use of a ship. I think Sam's release and ark are a hair flatter than Andy's but not in a bad way. The form and the follow through are remarkably similar looking.

    Completely agree, and sign him up. Andy's development as a player was a beautiful thing to observe as a fan. Hope he continues the Rautins legacy, because I'm already excited about the prospect of having him in Orange.

    I'm not sure if he's quite as good of a playmaker, but he reminds me a lot of Huerter [important for perspective that Huerter is also 2 years older than Rautins, and a bit further along his developmental curve than Sam].

    I can't remember any player ever developing as much as he did. Was in consensus with everyone else or at least the majority that it was a gift a scholarship and that he was too skinny, too slow to ever play meaningful minutes. Missed the mark on that one by about 100%.

    Anyone know how tall he is? Andy was 6'4 hoping that he's at least that tall.

    Considering Leo covers the Raptors from October to June this year, it only made sense for him to go to school in Canada...

    You still see Leo in Syracuse, but during the NBA season his time here was extremely limited.

    I wasn't sure as it would also make sense that he'd live with his mom in the States.

    During Andy's senior year, he could take a falling out of bounds three from half-court and I would have said "yup, that's a good shot". Only other player that I can think of doing that with is Steph Curry.
