None of you should care about revenue for MLSE. I just want a team that can eventually compete so Dragic sounds cool because he is a true point guard and will be a nice back up one day. Lin isn't that good and Nash should stay away for his own good.

yes. no one should care or cares about revenue for the MLSE. However, we know that mlse has to work around revenue and a salary cap. So we know that the decisions they will make will revolve around that.

I'd love it if the Raptors had a lot of these players instead of the ones they currently have.

Batum instead of the junk they throw out at SF. Dragic instead of Calderon at PG. Ilyasova instead of Bargnani at PF. Unfortunately, unless the Raptors are getting rid of those players, it won't happen because it would just be too much money.

Ideally at this point of the process, the Raps shouldn't really even be in the free agent market as major players right now anyway. However with the possibility of a poor first round pick relative to other teams and BC most likely gunning for the playoffs next season, at the very least I hope that if they do enter the free agent market it will be for a relatively young player rather than overpaying for somebody on the wrong side of 30.

I don't mind him and Bayless. I was just talking more in terms of starters/core pieces. The guys who you want playing 35 mpg for you if you want to be a good team. I don't see anyone on this that I would want filling that kind of a role. I'm very hopeful for Valanciunas to be that though.

Well summer is coming and that means Free Agency market opens up. A lot of players are out there trying to make a name for themselves and Toronto is the place to do it...

I don't know about either Lin or Dragic. How is Dragic any different from Lin? Hes only had one really good stretch where he was the starter for the Rockets otherwise he struggled throughout his career. Same goes for Lin as well. I'd rather keep Jose than overpay one of those two.

**** Lin.

He doesn't deserve anything more than a min contract and could be back out of the league in 2 years.

Except oh wait, he's Asian so we can make money from all those Asians and that he couple-of-good-game fluked his way into ridiculously over-hyped stardom doesn't matter.

Sigh

i agree with you. I think the raps will make a major push to get Lin. They will definitely overpay the guy to get him to TO. I really hope it doesn't happen but i see the raps at least trying to get him here.

What kind of contract would it take to get Nash? 3 years 36?

------------

I think there could be a way to get Lin from ny

Screw it, imma be greedy...I want Nash in Toronto....I want him to win a ring but at the same time, there are many great players who haven't (Baylor, Stockton & Malone, Gervin, Barkley, etc.). Depending on what valanciunas does this season and what other players we get to help, we might be in good territory. And say we signed him to a 3 year. If by the 1.5 to 2 year mark, Raptors haven't done a great step, trade Nash to a contender, get good pieces in return, and both player and team are happy...

Agreed with keeping Jose. Nash would be too expensive salary cap wise and Lin would be overpaid. Still, either of those with the Raptors will generate money, which MLSE always loves.

In Nash case, he could have more times dealing with Team Canada if he became a Raptor also. But I would like him to join a contender team instead of this crap.

If the raps did land nash and could find a way to get one more quality player via trade (all-star level) they would be fun to watch.

Funny thing is with Marion and Amare both rumored to be on the block this off-season I could see BC's dumb ass trying to acquire all 3.

Sign batum. Even though you have to over pay. 12+ per

S&t Nash even if you have to overpay. He isn't signing anywhere for 5 a year. Give them jj and Bayles to pull it off


Then the clincher. Lin + amare + fields for bargnani, Calderon, kleiza, Amir Johnson (Amir and lk to clear the space for Nash/batum)

Nash/lin
Dero
Batm/ghill
Amare/Ed Davis
