ESPN sources are reporting that the Raptors are in “active trade discussions” with the Grizzlies, after the Memphis club appears to have wavered on their stance regarding Gay’s availability. The Raptors are reportedly dangling Ed Davis and Jose Calderon.
Trade Machine Link: This is the non-blow-it-up move for Boston to stay relevant this season. Everyone wants to know: Are the Raptors going to choose to keep longtime point guard Jose Calderon or the younger, more volatile Kyle Lowry? Whispers around the league suggest that the Toronto front office is divided on the issue and the Celtics could swoop in and take advantage of that possible dissension.
A conversation via Twitter with the Raptors media relations contact (@RaptorsMR) has got alot of fans wondering today. According to he or she, they’re “not sure many fans would want another rebuild.” So, as the title says, if this isn’t a rebuild at the moment in Toronto, then what the heck are we doing?
Casey said both Bargnani (torn right elbow ligament and strained right wrist) and Valanciunas (fractured metacarpal on right ring finger) have some more tests on their respective agendas, but with practice time both Sunday and Tuesday, Casey figures he’ll have a good idea where they are after that. “If I was a betting man, I… Read more »
I was at this game in Auburn Hills tonight. Couple things: Sat 5 rows off the floor next to Andre Drummond's mom and Grandma who were across the aisle from us, so the family section. Paid $120 the day tix went on sale. My point is, that's is a way cheaper way to see the Raps if you can make the drive. Second point, the palace was absolutely FULL of Northern Invaders. We drowned out any and every detroit chant, defence chant, Drummond's mom who was quite vocal. And the Detroit fans, by the end were literally like "what the fuck is going on?" Where did all this people come from. It was so amazing to take over another team's building. As though we were trying to outdo the fans who rocked the Cleveland game. And to top it all off fuckin George Clinton was the halftime show! The raps players were loving it. And when the fight nearly broke out (malice at the palace 2) it would have been complete pandemonium, cause I swear it was 50/50 ratio of Raps to Pistons fans. The Johnson dunk was over Drummond and I want the poster. Nice work to any of the Republic who were at the game. Best Raps game I've ever gone to.
