    The one thing that most GM's are in search of is a "Franchise player". Is Millsap a Franchise player? He's a very able PF who can make a significant contribution to a team but is by no means a...

    A combo of Patterson, Ross or Vasquez along with picks sounds reasonable. As far as Demar's value is concerned, as you say many factors come into play. I personally prefer Millsap over Demar and...

    "As for Love, it would take even more to get him out of Minny than Millsap out of ATL" is exactly what I meant by "almost impossible". To acquire Love, Raps. would have to give up a few GOOD picks...

    "Millsapp can't sign an extension". Are you saying that because he has an option?

    I feel Love can't be acquired because it's pretty much a foregone conclusion he'll leave at the end of the...

    Trading for Love can't be called a mistake 'cause it's almost impossible. Millsapp would be possible and would not be a mistake. Whoever he's traded for would not be missed as far as the long term...

    Barring trade JV 'cause being European, he has not sentimental attachment to any team except the team he's played for.

    I don't think it should be anyone in particular. If there was a Superstar like Vince, it would've been a different story but as the team is composed, they should go with how the game's going. It...

    By no means World beaters but this team is a dream come true for me. As an NBA fan, I always envied teams that took the court as teams with solid reputations and had a definite chance to win. I...

    The key is to make mistakes and still be successful.

    Although I think MLSE did not handle the situation (BC firing) fairly, I agree that bringing in Masai was the right move. A BC managed team...

    The problem with Raptors fans is that they boo almost every ex-Raptor and do not need good reason for it. Gay did not have a bad attitude and gave his best on the floor, but I will not be surprised...

    Understandably, poor past showings have not earned Toronto much respect. This team however is legitimate and will certainly pose difficulty in the play offs. In fact I'd go as far as saying that...

    Pitching is a concern but what AA did was probably best. Dickey, Burhle and Morrow are the only starting calibre pitchers with Morrow's reliability a concern. However it should be a little better...

    It'a only spring training but one can't count them out based on last years showing.

    In a show recently (before the Gay trade), Masai Ujiri said that Casey is being evaluated not on the basis of wins/losses but on the basis of player development. We have seen players (Lowry,...

    The Casey problem is not a good problem to have, A good team making the Coach look better than he actually is, is what's happening IMO. While this is true, it's also true that you can't just fire a...

    When Vasquez came to Toronto, with a Lowry trade looming, the plan was to make him the starting PG. Obviously things took an unexpected turn (for the better ). I think the style that Grevis is...

    Lowry has the "shoot first" reputation because of his past. While we admire the phenomenal year he's having, we forget to pay attention to the reason for it. Demar is known to be this "hard...

    I would say that Kyle as a person is a decent guy and that's because he makes an effort to be that. He does not argue with referees "disrespectfully", he does not make controversial remarks with the...

    Like many I was hoping they would tank and was disappointed that the trade made the team better rather than worse, but it would be ridiculous to look at the record and a likely play-off berth and...

    This is interesting 'cause I wonder what they'd trade to acquire him. If Lowry is lost in another deal and Amir or Ross or both for Faried, then the chemistry of the team is totally messed up This...

    and he dealt Gay, Gray and Acy for a wholotta cap space and a trip to the play-offs. Another mark of Ujiri's superb Managerial skills. However a 'ridiculous rip-off' like the Bargnani deal does not...

    Considering both Jiminez and Santana will be immensely overpaid, it may be better to just stay with what they have and do something during the season.

    Ujiri should be thinking long term but considering the good play-off possibility, it's highly unlikely he'll change much. For a good return the only starter who could be moved is Amir IMO. PP and...

    I don't think the two can be compared at least at the moment. Jose is a much superior PG.
