Default Juan Dixon Might Be Available

http://www.thestar.com/Sports/article/304373


From Doug Smith and Star wires

Juan Dixon, who has become little more than a spare part on the Raptors this season, would be open to a deal, a league source said last night.

Trade Chris Mihm for Juan Dixon. The Los Angeles Lakers aren't using Chris Mihm right now because he's injured. The Toronto Raptors are barely using Juan Dixon, so why not??? Juan Dixon is a nice three point shooting guard. He's nice from the three point range.

What do you guys think??? Thanks.

Would the Raps take a banged up center? Id be down if they would, we can always use another spot up 3 point shooter.

But the trade would leave us a little naked at the Big Man spot, I would like to think Mihm may come back leaving us 4 7 footers to throw fouls at Shaq or Amare come playoff time.

Those of you who are dismissing the trade are missing the bigger picture: THE Juan Dixon is available! I don't see how Mitch DOESN'T go for it--the Lakers are in dire need of a fourth point guard.

Meh, give me sasha over dixon...Dixon can put up points in a hurry but so can sasha and sasha can play D much better. Dixon is a very undersized shooting guard who has huge liabilties on D.

He's 6'2, 6'3. He lacks playmaking skills, but he played the point in Portland, and would likely play the 1 spot if he were to ever play in the triangle.

As a Raptor fan 2nd, the guy is AWFUL. I wouldnt waste minutes on him. No interest in bringing him in... he had some time at PG with TJ Ford injured and did not impress at all. IIRC i saw a 0-17 shooting night or something like that.

Trading Mihm for Dixon is just trading damaged goods for damaged goods. Dixon had a ton of potential early on but with his injuries he was considering retiring. If some kind of Grant Hill miracle can be done than sure he would be able to help a team, other than that I'm not sure how much longer Dixon will even be in the league.

I would do it, guy can get hot. Remember Kareem Rush? Just for that one game vs. Minny he was worth it.
