Barnes is the better defender but Kleiza is a better shooter and scorer.
Collison/Jack/Dee Brown ??
probably acouple buyouts or waives will happen at the big spots probably jones and foster. i think dorsey will stay but no playin time unless injuries occur
that wud b nice :D
Im fine with keepin Calderon, but I would love to see Collison picked up for just about anything...
I was wondering where BC got the money to sign Barnes given the Raptors cap situation after signing Kleiza.
Here is the answer
ESPN.com sources: Raps' signing of Barnes to be finalized TUES as sign-and-trade w/ORL, since bulk of TOR midlevel exception went to Kleiza
please disregard the previous post....
i meant bryancolangelo's post....guess people can only dream
please lick my balls.
heck we can get a chance to unload a contract like dwayne jones and use some of da tpe. no draft picks please
One thing is BC sure makes summertime fun. Its almost as exciting as the season lol.
BC certainly wants to get some defenders added to the roster. Maybe they make this a sign and trade or make a trade with orlando calderon for Gortat.
great signing !!
Sounds like we overpayed another player albeit slightly to have him.
At least Barnes can egg on Bargnani during practice and prehaps make him more emotional since those two don't like each other.
I wonder how many players will be involved? looks like Orlando is Toronto best friend in the NBA, and Charlotte is the asshole.
Say hello to the Raptors new starting SF. Sure, it seems like a lot of money for him per year but we're talking a two year term. This is excellent. Now they need to find a back up center and maybe an upgrade at PG.
Not sure how this can be a sign and trade. Because he signed a 1 year contract with Orlando, they didn't have his Bird Rights, and I'm pretty sure they used up most of their MLE. On the other hand, it has to be a sign and trade since Toronto doesn't have anything left.
It looks like its happening somehow, though. I think it's a fine pickup. Not great, but fine. I like his defense and grit, but he's not a young guy, so doesn't really do anything towards the rebuilding effort.
