Default Re: List of free and restricted agents.

looking at the raps recent FA pickups...i cant help but to say that we'll probably end up signing kirilenko...
for SF we've signed: Hedo, kleiza, kapono

Although i would say kirilenko is better than all 3, but that wont makes us contend for a playoff spot unless demar and davis both hv breakout seaso, calderon returns to form, barbosa and bayless both can play at their peak level, and our defense stop being an absolute joke, and bargs averages at least 6-7 rebounds...

i rather we just develop our players more at this momenet and save up some cap space for later FA to actually be competing in the playoffs
Plus...i think next years draft class will be better

Default Re: Who would you pick if it were sign and trade ?

Who off the list would you pick if it were "sign and trade"

Barges for those FA centers?

Jose Calderon for any of those FA PG?

Put it in those terms assuming that both these guys make $10MM per and the Raptors - even with Barbosa - can absorb some salary under the cap i.e. a 2 - 3 million difference per player ??

Opens up some new horizons. Take a player back for 3 years

Smith and Bargs on the same team? Do you want our team's basketball IQ score to be in the negatives?

I really do not think this team should trade Bargs. They have spent the last 2 years stocking up on guys who compliment him with their D and rebounding. I think he's a perfect fit now once Val comes over especially. Without him, your bigs don't give you enough O IMO.

nene
gasol
chandler
butler

i dont feel the james johnson experiment is going to work out and it would be great to have a legit nba wing play next to derozan

highly doubt he'll leave the mavericks, only player likely to leave their team (from my list anyway) is nene

knowing BC and Ujiri's relationship in the past i definitely think it's a possibility

I support for trading the prime time commercial star but I do not want those two on the same team. Hell, can we just stay away from JR Smith? He has a bigger ego then Carter/tMac combine! Not down with that scenerio.

I got high hopes for JJ, even Pippen expects him to be a solid starter in the NBA. But he did make that comment about LeDiva...

I guess time will tell about that one.

Btw I meant Wilson Chandler.

Not Tyson.


There are some other interesting sf options also.
What I am really hoping for is dallas will resign Tyson and trade us Haywood and a draft pick for bargs.

Haywood? J.R. Smith? Those are guys who could help a team that is already good, where they wouldn't be completely screwed if Haywood's knees gave out or J.R. murdered a hooker.

We need young talent for the rebuild! Marc Gasol, Jeff Green, Thaddeus Young, or Wilson Chandler are the only players I want us targeting for a long term contract this offseason.



And did someone seriously say that we have built a team built for "D and rebounding" to fit around Bargs, and that our bigs would lack "O" if Bargnani was dealt? Come on man, wake up. For one thing, our team is pretty much the worst in the league at D and rebounding. And more importantly, Bargnani is a loser no matter what you "put around him" (as if he is franchise player material in the first place), he is a player who makes your team worse the more he plays, I have honestly come to believe that. He doesn't rebound or defend worth a lick, and although he puts up points, he has to be the one of the most inefficient big man scorers in the league. He's garbage and he makes too much money, the sooner we get rid of him (for ANYTHING) the better for this team's future.

I suppose you were one of the people who were worried when we didn't resign Michael Jordan James?

Why is it a joke? The joke is bluerap suggesting we trade Bargs for Haywood lmao. Look, the prospect of joining DeRozan and Jonas in Toronto has to at least be enticing for Howard and Paul. If we have enough cap for them both, we can try to sign them and create our own super team.
