Default Bargnani not on block!

According to a FAN590 interview by Colangelo this afternoon. From his discussion he still likes Bargnani.

Delusional freak, 2 good games lately but majority of the time this year he is an aweful struggle. his rotation within the team has no place for him. SF, Back up PF, C, starting Pf, etc. Bargnani and Parker are both good pieces together of talent to acquire something big.

You really can't read anything into that. Bryan admitting Bargs is on the block only lessen his trade leverage. I don't know that he isn't...but GM's claim players are immovable the day before a trade all of the time.

Meh, not really...Colangelo might be planning to just ride it out this year (which sucks, but I don't think we wanna do anything crazy). Bargs HAS potential..seriously, the dudes simply confused and still developing but won't get **** on the trade market at this point in time. Cut him some slack, and just hope he can get good enough to maybe start at the 5 when JO is gone (Cause I know BC is).

I guess we will most likey see BC do something however, perhaps just a little tinkering with depth trying to find that diamond in the rough come the deadline. Maybe find a taker for parker's contract...W/e simply put, we're kinda skrewed...

I just finished listening, and none of that really told me that Bargs is not on the block. To me, it sounds like he feels that Bargs needs consistent minutes at one position. The 3 obviously isn't a successful position for him, and he's not gonna get any consistent minutes at the 4 because of Bosh, so the only way that Bargs gets the 35 mins a game that Colangelo was talking about are either to limit JO to about 20 minutes a game or to trade one of them.

bargs has played well the last 3 games, now is the time to package him and send him off to Golden State! There is no way that Nelson is going to keep all his wings but give up on a fake-Dirk

Colangelo is going down with the ship in regards to Bargnani. The only way Bargnani is leaving the Raptors is if Colangelo is no longer the GM or he dies.

nope he won't...

he might trade AP , but what i really like to see is BC gettin' some kind of return via dumping Kapono's contract.. that would impress me, and i will forgive him for drafting Bargs

Well he's not supposed to just admit his mistake. That would be silly. I would hope that he is just waiting until the absolute best possible deal comes along but I'm getting the feeling that it's not the case. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Colangelo is doing anything to cater to Bargnani being in the starting lineup whether it locks the Raptors into mediocrity or not.

Obviously it's just speculation on my part but it doesn't sound too crazy to me based on what we've seen happen with this team.

Three games in a row that Bargs has been the best defensive player on the floor for the Raps. He's starting to look like Zdeno Charra of the Bruins controlling the defensive zone, he's everywhere! Now he's scoring allmost 20 a game too. Why we would trade him at all is beyond my comprehension. Last year i woulda run him out of town myself, but now i think it would be a HUGE mistake.
