More than wins and losses, Dwane Casey's first season as head coach of the Toronto Raptors will be about developing the talent at hand.

One of Casey's biggest challenges will be getting more out of the enigmatic Andrea Bargnani.

To that end, Bryan Colangelo, the general manager who has invested so much in Bargnani over the years, aided his new bench boss by gifting him with a couple of sizable veterans to ride shotgun.

Casey plans to play Bargnani and slight sophomore Ed Davis at power forward – which means they will spend a lot of time on the court with either Aaron Gray, Jamaal Magloire, or Amir Johnson, who doesn't share their heft but can match up well with quick, athletic centres.
