    #1. And even then I wouldn't be super stoked about it. Trading an existing All-Star who's 24 to take an 19 year-old project is a pretty terrible decision in general.

    If you trade DeMar you're...

    Generally a terrible idea to trade away a young and improving all-star who wants to play for your team. Especially when you historically have trouble luring top talent.

    DeRozan has improved every season in the league. Throw him overboard for some lottery tickets?

    First, you are not going to get a high pick in this draft and another player for him. That only...

    There's no way Brooklyn beats Miami four times in seven games when Miami gives a crap. Maybe if Deron Williams gets some bionic ankles installed or Truth finds a time machine.

    Do I think the...

    I'd rather have VC next year than Salmons, but I can also see contenders wooing Carter for a title run. Raptors can't afford to get into a bidding war for their 7th or 8th best player.

    I mean why keep Ross when we could just get Lebron too?

    Oh boy, two overpaid former Spurs roleplayers.

    The Raptors don't need another chucker (Neal) who loves his own shot. He's 29, he's not getting better. The Raptors don't need an overpaid point...

    Of course they're "interested". If somebody meets the price. Which is HIGH. That's what good GMs do. They demand value in return for assets. Do I think it's likely that Lowry gets traded? Nope....

    Novak is a waste of 3+ million at this point.

    I'm not a big Hansborough guy. He's fine if he's not your third big I guess.

    I think you have to keep Amir because he's versatile and he gives effort, and he's a solid big man who can start if needed. You're not going to find a better starting 4 for anything near what Amir...

    I think it's a tough balance. The offense FINALLY looks good now. You have to balance that kind of confidence building success with the right level of development. I would say right now JV...

    He's just not playing well right now. He's not an untalented guy. He has shortcomings (lousy defense, occasionally taking a bad shot) but I think I'd rather see the Raptors keep him and trade him...

    There's no trade he can make to "get them past" Indy and Miami. Not like you can trade Demar and Lowry to get Lebron.

    No, because they're not the best defensive team or the most efficient team in the league.

    But can they keep being successful? Sure. There's a ton of terrible teams in the East, and the Raptors...

    Why would the Raptors trade for Granger and Green when they've already got Gay and Derozan and Ross? Too many swingmen on this team that need minutes as it is.

    No way Indy trades for Rudy. They...

    That's too bad. I mean I like Casey as a coach but George Karl is a damn good one and would be an upgrade.

    Trade Bargs sure, but the Boozer thing is the most sideways trade they could make. Raptors trade for aging veteran with bad contract? Seen that movie before too.

    No excuse for playing Anderson when you have Gay, DeRozan, Ross and Fields all on the same roster.

    Basically any time AA and JL3 are in the game together the Raptors offense self-destructs.

    Gay is a vastly superior all-around player to Bargnani. It's not even close in any realm.

    I'd be fine with having him on the roster over Pietrus. Warrick is a passable big, but he's not going to bring a ton of size either. Not as good on the boards as you'd expect.

    Nonsensical.

    The wing rotation will be even better once Anderson gets glued to the bench and Ross starts playing 20-25 minutes every night.
