A Raptors official made it abundantly clear the team wouldn’t surrender its No. 1 overall pick for Indiana forward Jermaine O’Neal

But, will they give it up for Gasol or Marion?

SILLY SWAP: Some of you may find it hard to believe but Sam Smith, who scribbles a nice column in Chicago, is a good guy. Not a malevolent bone in his body.

But my guy must have had a seizure when he suggested the Raptors might be involved in a swap of No. 1 and Charlie Villanueva for Indiana's Jermaine O'Neal and the No. 17 selection in the June 28 draft, allegedly so Indiana can get Adam Morrison with the pick.

Not only does it make no sense whatsoever that Toronto would have any interest in O'Neal, who is Chris Bosh Lite at this stage of their respective careers, but why would Indiana want Morrison when they are going to re-sign Peja Stojakovic and have Danny Granger, too.

I understand but same thing coulda been said for Tracy Mcgrady when we drafted him ..and later on hes realizes Vince Carter is our number 1 option what did Tmac do ..Jump Ship ..Bosh doesnt appear that way cuz hes only making the real NBA dollars now ...Money talks .The NBA today is not about how can we win a ring ..(it is for the older Vets) .to majority of the younger guys is where can i land a big pay check ..where can i get more media attention etc. etc..think about it ..why is it so hard to get players to wanna come to The raps? Canadian Dollar..No much of a endorsement market as say (NY LA CHI) and yes we are lacking in the talent department too but ya ..Money Talks Man
