Finally going to get to see what Lowry can do with the keys to the team. That reason alone is enough to get me excited.
I would rather see a much more realistic asset come back for Jose, and then aim to move up in next seasons draft with the players we currently have. Trade Andrea in the off season, if he comes back looking serviceable. Take the pile and trade for more talent in the next draft.
Gay is not a franchise savior in my eyes, and can see this ending very badly. Just because he is available doesn't mean we should do it.
wow, suddenly im getting teary eyed at the thought of jose not being a raptor 4 life! his 3's and team ball were so clutch this season!! but go he must.. lets do this
Wow, BC the tyrant!

Raptors already taking on a ton of salary and Arthur isn't particularly great at anything (my opinion)

Hamed Haddadi has an unguaranteed deal for next season. Raptors balked at adding 2 years of Darrell Arthur
Steffi: No, we aren't taking Arthur's money. You have our final offer.
Bryan: but, but, but, c'mon now Eddie....
Steffi: Bryan, shut the fuck up. Two words: Jermaine O'Neal.
Bryan: fine *pout*
Steffi: Yeah, I'm still here. Sorry about that. Listen, we'll take Haddadi.
Doug Smith confirming on twitter....that's a big sing...Woj for general rumours and Smith for Raps specific....definitely whatever is happening will be finalized tonight I would think....(fuck..damn you Rudy Gay...go to hell BC)
I hope Robert Pera doesn't pull a Jordan and cancels the trade... you never know since Calderon is involved
now we gotta move DeRozan (can wait till the offseason) and Bargnani (can't wait until tomorrow)
Doug Smith: Raptors @SmithRaps
Sources confirm other reports: #Raptors "seeking approval" for blockbuster deal with Memphis at the moment
How long do we have to wait to start #TradeDemar? He'd look so good in Jazz colors, in exchange for Millsap...

This better not be his last move. Am really not a fan of DeMar/Gay in the same line up.. and we still have Mr. Noodles on the roster.
