dixon has a better shot and he's quicker. He also has better handles but his defense is pretty weak.

I like Juan. He can be instant offense off the bench. A decent move by the Raps.

The only thing Dixon will be needed for is to give Parker and Mo Pete a 10 minute spell each game at SG. Fred Jones couldn't even give the Raptors 10 semi-decent minutes.

meh, I'm pretty indifferent to Dixon, but Fred Jones obviously wasn't working out, so I guess it's a good deal by default

I really had high hopes for Fred Jones, and the ability to have an impact is still there, however, he doesn't have a brain and that's basically been the reason he's been a failure. If Dixon can play smart basketball and contribute efficiently off the bench then it will be a great deal, it's already a solid deal by default because of the contracts and correcting the earlier mistake.

A good young swingman for Calderon and he is gone in June or July. BC said he was staying 'this year'. Start putting together the pieces:

PG Ford (like him or not the raps have committed to him)
SG Parker
SF __________
PF Bosh
C Bargnani

Are you telling me BC wouldn't trade Calderon to fill in a good wingman??

Yes I am...lol! Decent swingman to fill the void come around every draft...every offseason a good PG with his skills don't come around very often. You can get Pietrus or Gerald Wallace in the offseason why trade Calderon.

Monta Ellis became what I thought Juan was going to become. I still believe in Juan though. He was a beast for Maryland.

I don't quite like it. As it is we're a "soft" team.. and need improvement in defence and in particular in rebounding.. Fred jones, if Mitchell tried to, could have been used to help that cause somewhat. The guy's pretty big for the position he plays.. and could have honestly brought some toucghness to the team.

What does' Juan do?? Shoot?? and score?? we've a whole lotta shooters.. and pretty darn good in offence overall. .. unless u're a slasher we don't really need your offence all that much.

It's a good trade player wise because Dixon will fit in better than Jones did into the Raps spread offense.

However to me the crux of this trade is the length of Dixon's contract. anybody know when it ends?

Toronto is the clear winner in this trade.

Dixon has much more of that "instant offense" aspect to his game, and he can step up and hit big shots when you need them. Provides much more of a lift than Jones, if you ask me.

Either that or he just always fricking destroys the Wolves.
