A nothing trade just to grant Dixon his trade request.

Atleast Brezec plays center where if for some horrendous reason we have to play him he may turn into what he was a few years ago.

Default Re: Pistons trade Primoz Brezec to Raptors for Juan Dixon

This is actually a pretty good move. If anyone thought Dixon could actually get something of great value then your living in your dream world.

We are trading an expiring contract in Dixon for another expiring contract in Brezec.

We needed another big and did not need Dixon at all so in a sense this does benefit the Raptors in their point of view.

Now to me, Brezec is another version of Rasho but at 2.7 mill instead of Rasho's 8.7 or whatever million he's making.

Now think about this, next year Rasho will be an expiring contract and if Brezec shows the same ability of Rasho then we could potentially sign Brezec for a smaller deal like 1.5 million and use Rasho as trade bait next deadline.

Now for people who think Rasho will not have trade value, your dead wrong since expiring contracts are worth a ton. If Raptors see a player next year which they think is signed to a decent contract and can help the team, Rasho becomes useful since the team acquiring him would be just interested in getting cap relief.

If Rasho is moved next year and you still have Brezec on the team at 1.5mil producing similar to what Rasho is already bringing then thats good since your getting Rasho type production for 1.5 mil instead of the current 8.7 mill.

Colangelo did exactly what he said he would do. Nothing major but the move makes the team better short term without messing up what he wants to do long term with this team.

I think one more good job from Bryan Colangelo. Primoz Brezec is a good shot blocker. Toronto Raptors can use him inside.

Better to have size on your bench than an undersized 2 who can't play the point. Juan is best bringing straight offense off the bench, and that's what he can do in Detroit. The Raps had more than enough offense, and not enough size or rebounding.

Brezec has had some nice seasons, and can possibly bring some defense and rebounding as a big off the bench.

For Raptor fans who think Primoz can play...he's one of the worst players I've ever seen. He can't jump, but even worse I've never seen an NBA player who looks like he doesn't know how to run. He's useful for garbage time though. He tries hard and seems like a good guy.

That's cool, I like Dale. He's likely just insurance though, as he shouldn't cut into Max/Amir's minutes.

I also think that's what Dixon's simply insurance too. I'm thinking he'll take Flip's spot on the IR after the Pistons buy out Flip's contract.

He will not be getting any minutes.

Murray wanted more PT. I read somewhere that Dixon will take Afflalo's spot in the rotation. I'm a little surprised by that.
