The Raptor Love you suggest takes place because the Raptors have the most fans by far on these boards, so naturally when something good happens, it gets discussed. As well, we have about 2-3 fans that take it way too far and basically just cause alot of hate for the team because they exaggerate things.

The Raptors are still rebuilding, and have some tremendous young pieces in place which is why they were extremely competitive last year. However, they couldn't seem to get over that hurdle to propel them to a few more wins. I think with some added experience, some defense, and a few more solid moves by GM Bryan Colangelo, we should be in contention for the 8th spot in the East next year.

Didn't think so.

Onto basketball:

Is there a 0% chance charlotte would trade the 3 and brevin for the first? I think so, because anybody the bobcats want will be available. Well, my real question is what would have to be added for a trade like this to happen? Involving charlie and gerald wallace?

Mike James was a good defender in Detroit, maybe he stopped. Ran the Press with Hunter really well. Even called them the Pitbulls.

Mo Pete is a solid perimeter defender?

Isn't Bosh good in the post?

Seems like you have some defensive pieces.

Mike James was an average defender here, wouldn't say he stood out. Morris Peterson is definately a solid defender, he would be our only real player with solid defense in him. Chris Bosh struggles on defense most of the time because of his stature, he gets banged around alot which is why he's probably considered a below average defender. Charlie Villaneuva, our starting small forward, is a down-right awful defender, but an absolute beast on the offensive end. And our center, whom we didn't really have, was either Pape Sow - a pretty good defensive player whom picks up fouls, or Rafael Araujo - a pretty awful defensive player whom picks up fouls.

Either way, it all adds up to a very weak defensive team.

Anybody thought maybe it will be :

Knight and the 3 pick

for

#1 and a throw in player like Calderon?

It's a possibilty seeing that Bikerstaff said he likes
Morrison or Gay

How about Maggette for Mo Pete and Toronto's 2nd 1st rounder?

This is not possible because Toronto's 2nd first rounder was traded to the New York Knicks as apart of the Jalen Rose trade. Toronto currently has picks #1, #35 and #56. As far as acquiring Corey Maggette, well, I personally don't know enough about his game to make a solid judgement. However, I do know he has struggled with injuries, and that's not something we need to trade for our ironman, Morris Peterson.

I thought he was too.

The best FA PGs are sam cassell, jason terry, mike james, marcus banks, speedy claxton, bobby jackson, and david wesley.

I just realised something: If he will come very cheaply (I mean a real steal), then toronto should watch out for trevor ariza. Depending on what happens on draft day, signing him as a backup sg wouldn't be a horrible idea.

That doesn't work out financially.

Depends if the Raptors can get an extension with Mo Pete. If they cant then they should trade him.

He would definitely stay when his contract runs up after next year.

The Toronto Raptors will be under the salary cap, so they will be able to take back more then 125% + $100,000, therefore it would work if Toronto wanted to trade the #1 Pick and Jose Calderon for the #3 pick and Brevin Knight. However, I doubt that they would want to include Jose Calderon, as he showed that he can really play well at points last year. He could be a really solid backup point guard soon, and I think Toronto may be keen on keeping him around.

I would lean towards the fact that Peterson would want to stay with Toronto, though nothing is ever certain and Bryan Colangelo may have other ideas about keeping him in the long-term plans. But the man has been an ironman for this franchise, and is always praising how much he enjoys playing here. I would assume that any reasonable offer he gets from Toronto, will be the one that keeps him a Toronto Raptor for the long term.

He fits well with the suns-style plan that BC has. Mo Pete is Toronto's best scorer in transition.
