No.

- no pg
- no sf

Yes, through drafting and FA signings those holes can be filled (but #1 pick will likely be gone), but after that, the bench is absolutely horrible.

Raptors should trade for a point guard. Jermaine and Bosh are undersized at center.

Maybe Collangelo can work some magic N bring JO in while keeping Bosh. That would be an insane duo. I think Pacers will ask for Villanueva & Mike James (sign n trade). I say yes, instant contenders especially keeping Bosh. Teams will get tortured in the paint.

JO is horribly overrated.

Bosh can play Center. Besides Shaq, who else does he have to worry about in the East? They will be comparable to Pistons Wallaces. Big Ben is not an offensive threat and Sheed can shoot the 3 and both are shot blockers. JO N BOSH will both can post up and block shots.

His contract is too scary. No thanks.

I'd do it as long as the #1 pick is the centrepiece of the deal from the Raptors side (which means that Charlie is NOT included in the deal) and hopefully the Raptors can use Alvin Williams as a contract filler.

The Raptors are gonna need a young talent like Charlie to either learn how to play the 3 well or as good trade bait to improve the really bad and shallow backcourt.


Why does Indiana take Morrison anyways?? What does that do to the future plans with Granger???

Yeah but they won't be as effective against centers in the west, Yao for example is too big for them.

Bosh and JO is a tempting thought, but to get JO Toronto would have to give up their draft pick plus players and they're already letting Mike James walk. There won't be much else up in Toronto outside of Bosh and JO (for his usual half - third of a season)
