Aaron Gray is playing more than ever before in Toronto (Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE)
Former Pitt center Aaron Gray is often the forgotten man when it comes to Pitt's NBA players. DeJuan Blair and Sam Young have gotten off to decent starts, but Gray is holding his own as well.
Gray isn't having a huge season by any means for the Toronto Raptors, but he is contributing. So much so, that he's averaging a career high in rebounds this season.
He's currently pulling down more rebounds than starter Andrea Bargnani, though Bargnani is more of a perimeter player. Still, Gray's six rebounds a game are good for third on the team.
His numbers of four points and six rebounds a game probably won't mean he's going to be a regular starter just yet, but he's proven to be a solid backup and has made more than 50% of his shots over his career. As a seven-footer, Gray could play another decade or so in the league if he stays healthy.
