As for DD, if you can convince a team to trade a great SF for a 4th year player who still doesn't know how to dribble, shoot or play defense, you don't walk, you run to sign off on that.
how did everyone even get this Iguodala business?? I haven't even heard any rumours of him coming to T.O., are leaving philly for that matter...
PG: Kyle Lowry, Jose Calderon, John Lucas III
SG: Demar Derozan, Terrence Ross
SF: Landry Fields, Linas Kleiza, Alan Anderson
PF: Andrea Bargnani, Ed Davis, Amir Johnson, Quincy Acy
C: Jonas Valanciunas, Aaron Gray, *Jamaal Magloire*?
That 4 spot looks overly congested to me. Moving Ed/Amir, or even both for a better 4 would be nice to end off the off-season. I also do hope that Jose Calderon changes his mind and stays in Toronto, and even signs an extension for less money, he's a fan favourite here, and a true professional.
Linas is making a case for quite a few minutes this year.
Assuming JV & Ross can learn fairly quickly and ED continues to improve & mature, I can see a lineup of Lowry, Ross, Fields, ED & JV being very potent on the defensive end at some point this season.
Raptors seem to have a deep lineup of somewhat talented players. If they come together and compete as a team I can see them playing on a level above that of their talent.
Start of year.
C: Gray(for a few games til JV gets it)
Sixth Man: Ross
End of year, and what I hope for:)
SF: DeRozan (I hope he's bulked and beefed up)
Sixth Man: Ross and Fredette
Sigh, pipe dreams
Please not fredette
