Francis might end up as a Raptor? Anyone?

fair to say that Head is more valuable than Francis right now?
maybe sign him as an assistant coach :)

Orlando and NY really killed his career. I bet if he went to a good team he could contribute.

He should go to the Clippers and be reunited with his buddy Cuttino Mobley. They'll finally be happy again.

They have enough experience withing the team to not need someone whose going to be a bad influence on most players there. The guys in Toronto are good , hard working guys. Why would they want to add a lazy piece of ****, like the one Francis is.

They can turn to Nesterovic for this so-called veteran leadership that apparently every team needs now. They can also turn to Anthony Parker, whose been a league MVP before (not in the NBA of course). They can turn to Fred Jones, whose made it as far as the Eastern Conference Finals (Back when the East was somewhat strong). Unless they let him go, they also have Morris Peterson who they can turn to for this leadership crap, and they could probably sign a nice, much better player for veteran leadership as well.

I think its basically gonna come down to Houston and the Clippers. He's friends with Cuttino and Cassell in LA, and of course Yao in Houston. I think he just needs to be put in a situation where he's happy again and he'll be back to at least a 15ppg scorer
