2) Toronto deals 1st round draft choice to the Bucks for Jamal M, Mo Williams, and the Bucks 1st round pick. With the Buck first round pick Toronto selects F/C Baglini (spelling?) from Benneton in Italy. Happens during the draft.
3) Toronto selects Lamarcus Aldridge with the first overall pick. Toronto annouces its intent to build the Great Wall of Canada with a starting line up of Bosh, Villy, and LA. Toronto signs Speedy Claxton in the offseason freeagent market. Declines to match an offer to Mike James made by Denver/Portland.
1) Who knows if it will be Aldridge for sure. Why get rid of Graham? It was only his rookie year, they need a kick start. They don't feel as much pressure.
2)Bargnani....and I cannot see a draft pick being traded over for 3 players at all. I can't remember Milwaukee having a first rounder. Their first pick is at #39. Also Jamaal Magloire is an incredible talent when healthy and so is Maurice Williams....Think Again.
3)OK, this is more enlightening. Mike James is not going to re-sign no matter what is said. He made it pretty clear that he wants back in Houston where he can play alongside Rafer Alston. Honestly, Mike James is a great shooter, but that is because the only thing he does is shoot. Is philosophy is shoot first, pass second. He might have had 6 assists a game but that is because whenever he drove, he had nothing to do so he passed. That is only a personal opinion though.
