On his name mentioned in trades:

“Every day my name is next to a different team. It’s something I can’t control because trades are just part of the NBA. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen. All I can do is focus on what I do day-by-day, and right now my focus is on the Raptors, and it will be for as long as I’m here.”

On his injury:

“I wasn’t able to practice with the ball—shoot or dribble—for seven weeks, so of course, I’m out of rhythm and out of shape. I did nothing with basketball for seven weeks, and it’s hard to come back from that.”

    I think that we should decide Andrea’s fate in the offseason.    Gay is here now so may as well see how it works before making trades for the sake of it.

    Raptors need a pass first PG, whether it’s a trade or 10 day pick-up. If they trade Bargs to get that back-up PG, then they would also need a PF coming back. So in effect, we have to get – for Andrea – a decent back-up PG, plus a Power Forward who’s better then Acy & Gray.

    A Bargs package with a wing might accomplish this, but that also means taking away something from this team, to in effect, get rid of Andrea. Personally, I think we play out the season. Wouldn’t be adverse to the following season either. He’s an asset with many options. The upside being the ideal 6th man role, or strong Bench contributor. If not, he can be amnestied (at specific points), or traded.

    Trading him now has no real net gain. Raptors are not making the play-offs. And any attempt to barter the future for such a goal, could have consequences. The downside being Raptors take on something they regret (ie. Boozer). Toronto has money to spend, but there are greater restraints with this new CBA . Rogers/Bell would’ve been great – back a few years ago.

    If it comes to be that AB is traded, then a solid finish to the season will help his value.
