The Toronto Raptorsí intrigue with running a European-modeled franchise advanced again with a trade for Golden State guard Marco Belinelli(notes), NBA sources told Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday night.

The Raptors will send Devean George(notes) to the Warriors.

Hell freaking ya, now we don't have to waste excessive $$$ on that scrub Carlos. Great move by BC if true and a much better move than getting Delfino especially as a long-term option. We're going to be quite good next year.

Cool.

Devean George blows and wouldn't see a minute of playing time in Toronto. Belinelli isn't anything great but he's only 23 and SHOULD see some playing time here since he only has to compete with Derozan and Wright for minutes.

This is a minor trade that has massive potential reward, and realistically, even if Belinelli never really pans out, he'll give us more then George would have ever given us this year. At 23 years old, hopefully Toronto will be the place for Belinelli to put it all together. This was a really nice pickup by Colangelo, we essentially add a young, former first rounder who was basically cast off because of Don Nelson not liking him, a massive steal in my opinion and something that will help our roster alot this season.

Any time you can flip a player who'd get 0 playtime for one who can help us at a position that was weak AND makes it so that we don't have to way overpay one Carlos Delfino who for some reason thinks he's worth the MLE it's a very good thing.

Oh and for those of you who want Pops back, there is now a roster spot free for him non? I'd be down for signing him for the minimum and throwing him into a game to add energy should our team play as lifelessly as it did at points last year.

Turning a guy who be at the end of the bench collecting garbage minutes into a 23 year old rotation player with potential, another Colangelo special.

Exactly. Belinelli could totally shit the bed and it wouldn't matter much since he's such a low salary player. There is almost no downside to this deal for the Raptors and plenty possible reward.

This has to at least tie and will probably exceed Hoffa for Hump. However without Hoffa for Hump we don't get this deal so maybe it is just a tie.

Put me down in the same category as everybody else. I love this trade. The next question is, what will BC get for Ukic?
