A couple /questions ideas about the future
1. Because this deal can't be completed until July 9, what happens if someone the raps are REALLY interested in drops to number 17? Could we make the pick and say sorry Indy, we changed our mind, or JO didn't pass the physical? Stranger things have happened. I remeber Granger was projected to go 6-10 and he fell to 17. So what happens if, BROOK Lopez drops all the way to 17? For example. Or maybe more realistically Brandon Rush? Assuming it is a player the raptors really wanted, but didn't think they had a shot at.
2. We still have another mid-level exception, about 6 million? Perhaps that could land us Pietrus. Any other swing you'd like to see them target with that exception? there are going to be a lot of free agents this year and almost all teams have only the mid-level to offer.
3. What is Bargnani's value out there? Do you think we could get, say, Ben Gordon for him? Would you want to? What about the Matrix? What would that cost? Bargs, Hump, Parker, Kapono, 2 draft picks. We would have no bench but could you imagine that starting lineup.
I really think we are one player away from winning 2 rounds in the playoffs, so the real question is - how can we get that player?
