    I would love to see if Denver would move Gallinari for Bargnani. Their salaries are close but I doubt they would do the deal. Their GM, Masi, probably knows Bargs too well. OKC could also use him...

    I'd like to see what a package of Bargnani and Lowry would bring? Would it be enough to secure a good SF?

    I read that article and it's the same old, same old with Bosh. He wanted out of Toronto. He got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play with Lebron and D.Wade and it doesn't matter if he played...

    Presuming they can fit him under their cap, does anyone think Jose might entertain the possibility of playing with his old buddy, Chris Bosh, in Miami. It's got everything he'd be looking for: great...

    Excellent point. You generally only use a zone when you simply don't have athletes who can stay with their man in a man on man defence. That's the Raptors. Unless there is a talent upgrade, no...

    Defensively, it looks like they're focused on protecting the paint but they need to focus more on preventing penetration into the paint at the point of attack. Most of the teams they've played this...

    Don't forget though that we could very well lose our pick to OKC. In 2013, it's top 3 protected and I believe 15-30 protected as well. This means that if the pick falls from 4-14, it goes to OKC...

    It's usually said that big men take 3-5 years to develop but I think Jonas will hit his stride sooner than that. For a rookie, he already looks very good. With each game, he's getting a little bit...

    For markets like New York, LA, Miami, Boston, Dallas, etc., the draft is a part of the puzzle in building championship teams because they can acquire players via free agency since they want to go...

    That's exactly what the Raptors need. I'm hoping they can get a top 5 pick in this summer's draft, which by most accounts, is loaded. Wouldn't Andre Drummond, Anthony Davis, or Harrison Barnes...

    I think the players should accept the offer. Getting a 50/50 split on revenue is still good. The owners still have expenses to pay from their share. The players just take it and go. However, I...

    This doesn't sound right to me. Why would BC want to bring in a new GM when he has repeatedly stated that he wants to see things through here in Toronto? I'm wondering if this guy they hire won't...

    In an ideal world, would love to see them move up to the #2 pick and take Williams or Irving. That's not likely to happen so I'd like to see them go after Kemba Walker at the #5 pick. I'm not sold...

    Couple of points:
    1. Anybody see Jay being a replacement for Gheradini?

    2. Just for the fun of it, would love to hire Charles Oakley just to see what the Oak man would do to Bargnani.

    Not sure about Minnesota's take on this deal. They said they were open to moving the 2nd pick to get someone who can help them win now. So, then they turn around and trade down, in a weak draft? ...

    Kemba Walker will be a Toronto Raptor come June 23. My conclusion about this comes from two things.
    A. Draft Order
    I think it will go down like this:
