Adande: "Toronto would seem to be at a disadvantage for free agents"
Hmmm .... I don't know how excited I'd be to become even more international than we already are. I mean, I guess if the type of player is a Garbajosa-esque style complete with toughness and grit I'd be happy, but not of the same mold and lack of intensity of some of our current men for overseas. :(

Jesse (Ferndale, MI) - The Raptors are going to have to trade Bosh. Theres no concievable reason for him to return to Toronto. The front office has made some sloppy moves, the team is struggling, it isn't a city that will attract other big name free agents... there's just not a lot to excited about with this franchise. And letting Bosh walk for nothing, in my opinion, is just cause to fire Coloangelo. So they gotta move him, right?
J.A. Adande - Toronto would seem to be at a disadvantage for free agents, but you're thinking in American terms. To foreign players the idea of playing in Toronto isn't so bad. It didn't stop Hedo Turkoglu from going there instead of a better team in America (Portland). So I wouldn't automatically rule out Toronto as a FA destination for the ever-growing pool of international guys.
