    Why do the Raptors have a problem getting minutes for Ross?
    Just put him in the game. It won't make any difference to the outcome.

    Thornton has the skill. He scored like 23 his first game coming off the bench this season. Hell, he was scoring double digits every game he came off the bench I think, even 12 pts the last game he played. He can shoot when in rhythm, play passing lanes, is great in transition, etc. Jimmer just got the chance b/c he's a different type of player the Kings needed. Jimmer has the drive, energy, positivity, etc. This has nothing to do w/ Thornton's skill but his personality and attitude instead (which isn't toxic, it just doesn't fit Malone's style).

    That being said, I say Kings just try to get a 2nd rnd pick for him. W/ the new rotation, the synergy and chemistry on the team is REAL nice. I'd say try to get a shot-blocker but N'Diaye looks to be able to fill that role w/ some more practice.

    Btw, andremiller, didnt I say just wait for Prince Luc to get more PT?

    thonrton, a future 1st, and filler for afllalo?

    of course, that would mean that orlando sees oladipo as a PG long term, or they could use thornton as offense off the bench (which he doesnt seem to like)

    jameer would eventually need to be moved too.

    I can't see them giving Deng that if they pulled a smaller offer from Iggy, Deng's body is going to breakdown anyway from all the mins, imo if they miss out on the SF's than they should try draft a starting PG(Smart/Exaum) (Thomas is elite back up), find someone serviceable at SF (something like Martel Webster) and wait to draft another SF, no point in giving massive money to a older player we need someone either in there prime or young who will grow with #M16, Cousins and Thomas.

    We learnt the hard way with JJ Hickson to never give away firsts

    Would like to see Deng traded for Thornton and fillers. Does Sacramento have any picks in next years draft? I'd take Thornton and a 1st rounder for Deng.

    We owe a protected first to Cleveland after they raped us in the JJ Hickson deal and plus like I said before I don't think we can afford to trade away picks for player not young enough for our core group.

    Fair enough.

    I don't know what we are gonna do with Deng, IMO he needs to be moved. Get something back for him, before he walks.

    Really?

    Thornton for Butler, Henson and a First? I wouldn't trade him straight up for Henson.
