Trading JO?
 
If, at the end of the season, he plays big, would you trade JO when he is at the top of his game or would you keep him to see how far we can get and build around the Bosh/JO/Calderon core?

Depends on the results.

If he plays great but he doesn't mesh well with Bosh or something else then I would deal him, but there are so many factors that it is impossible to answer the question right now.

No i would just try to develop the bench more because they don't have depth in there bench.

I'd trade anyone if it helps the team. Including Bosh!

Once JO's deal is an expiring contract, we should definitely trade him and I am sure we will. Or we'll let him walk. Only re-sign him if it's very reasonable which I doubt it will. If he plays well someone will overpay him.

Think he has an opt out at the end of this season, so really it could depend on him if he's gonna leave...

I keep him.

It would be great if Bargnani plays like we all hoped he would but then what? A team with a Bosh/Bargnani frontcourt still isn't going anywhere significant. So unless you want Bosh traded if Bargnani breaks out (and those people are friggin crazy) then you still trade Bargnani whether he plays well or not.

Keep JO for these 2 years, try to win with maybe getting a good swingman (once again, MIKE MILLER!). If it doesn't work then you pray Bosh stays since the Raptors can offer him the most money and do a "mini-rebuild" with him, Calderon and cap space.

JO does not have an opt out after this season.

Even if he did have an opt out, doesn' he make like $22 million or something ridiculous next season? There is no way in hell he would get nearly that much in a new contract, so there is no way he would opt out.

Anyways, once JO's current massive contract expires, I sincerely hope we resign him to a three year deal for something reasonable like $9-12 million per, and then use the extra $10 mill or so of cap space to resign Bosh and sign a fairly legit swing man. JO will be getting old towards the end of that contract, but we'll be contenders to win the East during its duration if we can only get some wing talent.

Let him play a game first before we talk of trading him :D

But that's the thing, we got Ford because we traded Villy while his value was high then he washed away on Milwaukee. If that's the case with JO, with him being injury prone, should we do the same if he has a big season?
