Jack isn't the answer, but if you get him for dropping a few lotery slots and get equal talent back, we're that much deeper. Bosh's scoring should go up because he'll get more touches, so will v...so the scoring should stay relatively the same, but with better D and rebounding.

I agree with you on Mo, he's a streak player, that's why if we trade, I would trade him...playoff teams will want his scoring and 3's.


Yes the raps scored a lot last year, but I think most would agree that it wasn't because they had an efficient system. They chucked a ton. I think the scoring will fall tons when you remove Mike James' 20 ppg and all the shots he takes. Sub James for Jack and you have a huge loss in points, along with Pryz and his inability to score. Ratliff makes huge money, but you're telling me the Portland Trailblazers are playing guys to justify contracts? Let's get real. They are terrible had Ruben Patterson rotting on their bench making huge coin. I think many Raps fans will be disspointed in his game and he will spend a lot of time on the injured list, as he has for most of his career.

Yes, Toronto scored a lot last year, but they got scored on even more...they had 100 points per game and the opposition had around 102 or somethin like that. Not a big stat to bring up.

I would love to see Mo Pete as a Cav. His D and 3 point range would be perfect next to LeBron.

But the only player the raps would want back is Anderson Varejao and he is not goin to be traded.

Mo Pete
Alvin Williams

For

Hughes

You guys get a 2 gaurd with Defence who can get to the basket and play point when needed.

Hughes contract isn't as bad as i though it was.

I don't think the scoring would fall tons because Mike James took a lot of bad shots and most times he kept the ball himself and just chucked up a 3 without running a play. I'm not saying James is an offensive liability or anything, because most games he was hot and get 20+, but I'm just saying if the Raptors get a "true" point guard, who could average maybe 13ppg and 8apg, you'd have those points that James provides, and maybe more because the team would be taking more quality shots.

I would agree with you if I had more faith in Mitchell's system.
