Default Jerryd Bayless to Memphis

He'll be a good fit there. Sorta in the OJ role for next year...

After getting Lowry, Ross, and Calderon not moving it seems... Bayless was the odd man out.

He'll fit fine in Memphis.

Wasn't really a fan of his offensive game, but defensively he plays with energy.

Keeping Calderon is the better hoops decision.
Lowry, Calderon, uzoh
Derozen, Ross
Fields, jj, kleiza
Bargs, amir, Davis
Val, gray

I see a two for one trade with jj and Amir heading out.

Sorry disagree

Not that loosing Bayless is a huge loss but the guy is young.

Calderon is the only player that demonstrated nominal d efficiency improvement last season.

Still a fine player but does not fit the long term plans of this team - core youth with upside and selected complete package vets.

Calderon is the one to move...a number of teams can use his ample ball handling - low turn over skills AND his expiring contract (for cap space).

Bayless being a youngish 1-2 tweener could very well end up being a younger perhaps better Barbosa - high energy impact 6 or 7 man.

Good luck JB in Memphis - hope it works out for ya

I like Jerryd Bayless, just not on our team. I will definitely be routing for him in Memphis, I really like that team over there. They are championship caliber (at least from a talent standpoint) and he has a chance to be instant offense off the bench for them. To be put in a situation where he actually doesn't have to run the offense kind of how it was with Barbosa in his later years in Phoenix. I like the move for him and i'm sure he's much better off.

More poor asset management by the Raptors.

Why let go a 24 year old PG/SG who had a pretty good year for you last season at such a low price? Why not keep him as the primary backup since it seems like he still has some room to develop and Lowry might only be here for 2 years? Oh right, because no one else in the league wants Jose Calderon right now no matter how hard the Raptors try to trade him and the Landry Fields offer sheet.

At this point though, I'm not surprised. I also fully expect James Johnson to get traded for peanuts even though he is probably better than every other SF currently on the roster or signed to an offer sheet.
