Caron Butler is more valuable than anyone on the Raptors not named Chris Bosh. Any deal for him starts with either Bargnani or Calderon + an unprotected 09 1st rounder and even then the Raptors have to sweeten the deal to just get Washington on the phone.

I've seen much worse trades than that. But getting 2 unprotected 1st round picks is an extremely valuable commodity. Especially if the Raptors remain in the 10-20 range. Washington seems to be extremely desperate right now knowing that Eddie Jordan is gone, Arenas will never be the same and Antawn is getting older. A shakeup is needed for sure. I'm not sure about them trading Caron but getting a young hustle PF in Humphries, a solid backup SF in Moon, and a quality veteran leader in Anthony Parker + 2 1st round picks would definitely get them to AT LEAST pick up their phone.
