Re: trade idea
Raptors could trade for a Wilson Chandler. They could draft a wing, like kj mcdaniels or they pick up a sefolosha or a tucker out of free-agency.
I lean towards drafting mcdaniels and signing tucker through free-agency.
My ideal team for next year would be..
lowry, Vazquez, de colo
derozen, ross, fields
ross, , tucker, mcdaniels #39 pick ? best player available
amir, Patterson, novak
val, , hayes bacnynski
Hansbrough, salmons bought out.
draft. bachynski with their late second rounder and pick best player available with their 39 pick.
What I like about that squad is that they are all high character players. build for one more year, and then see if you can hit the jackpot in freeagency next summer.
off the books, fields, hayes, amir next summer. Sign your star power forward then bring amir back over the cap. Would love to bring in amir and Patterson off the bench on a contender team. Amir can guard back-up 5's in this league.
