What’s G? The heart, hustle and flow of Pops Mensah-Bonsu!

The Toronto Raptors announced Monday they have extended a qualifying offer to Pops. To bad the offer is for slightly more than $1 million with absolutely no guarantees. That makes it highly unlikely he’ll sign it.

But because the Raps made the offer, they retain the right to match any offer Pops gets as a restricted free agent, protecting themselves if BC makes a deal to clear up a frontcourt logjam.

This is awesome news if it actually works out. Pops was one of the hardest working, hustle guys the Raps had during the garbage period of their season last year.

Mensah-Bonsu averaged 5.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 13.8 minutes in 19 games with the Raptors.

Short of him going all Jamario Moon Part II, Pops will be a great guy to have on the team and he will find playing time under Jay Triano’s system.

Hell his name is just fun to say.
