Default o'neil or gasol to toronto?

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servl...ts/Basketball/

the part i'm talking about is on the last paragraph.

would you guys accept giving up a potential aldridge/bosh/villa trio to have o'neil and bosh team up? how about gasol?

if we don't get indiana's pick, then we'd have to start graham, which isn't really a bad thing cause i think he'll turn out to be quite good this year.

i'd like to know who this mofo's internet sources are though.

what frontcourt trio would fit us best?

o'neil or gasol/bosh/graham or aldridge/bosh/villa. i think the answer is pretty obvious.

thats a big trade on Indy or Memphis end...a steady all star..for a 2nd year player and a rookie?

i was reading in the rumors that the bucks are willing to trade Magloire and Mo Williams....what if the raps trade the number 1, and maybe eric williams, and possibly graham for em?

#1 plus possibly a future 15 ppg player in graham for magloire (who they might sign next season) and mo williams? don't see that happening.

I thought I read everything in the new and old Raptors message boards, and I donít remember anything about trading for Gasol or J. OíNeal. Thatís a shocker to me. This is highly unlikely.

Maybe wishful thinking, but if it BC can pull this off Iíd rather have OíNeal than Gasol. That would be a nasty combo --- JíOneal + CB4.

Say no, to Magloire.

Gasol + Bosh = Insane froncourt. I'd like it but I'd still rather have Villy, Bosh, and LA.

Default Re: Gasol or O'neal to T.O.

That would be awesome if they could pullit off but we would have to trade contracts to somewhat match but not fully due to our capspace:

S&T Mike James
Alvin Williams
Charlie V
#1

to Indy for JO

I would rather the Raps get O'Neal/Dalembert (for a less price) if possible than Magloire...that would be an awsome frontline to watch...but I think he's gonna spend the money more wisely or trade for Dalembert which he's tried several times to pry away from the Sixers as the Suns GM.

Thumbs up

Bottom line is do the Raptors trade future potential Ė Charlie + (Aldridge or Bargnani), for a proven all star (OíNeal or Gasol)?

OíNeal is 27, Gasol is 25, both are still relatively young. But, with big fat contracts. After early exits for both in this year's playoffs, their all star lustre may have slightly faded, but if paired up with another all-star -- CB4, the results could be awesome.

Gasolís game is too close to CB4ís, so Iíd rather have OíNeal, whoís more rugged, and blocks more shots.

I just don't see Memphis trading a player who led the team in points, rebounds, assists, and blocks.

Plus he is the heart of there defence.
