    Typical DumbassKicker missing the point, and highjacking the thread with his pseudo philosophical/semantical nonsense...yet again.

    Newsflash: We're discussing the possibility of Carl Landry in Toronto. The credibility of the source isn't the point. Get it? Naw, of course you don't get it. Next you'll ask for a larger sample size....

    There have been rumours that the cap number and subsequent luxury tax and apron number will rise this year. Larry Coon has estimated all to go up about $5M. Numbers are based on BRI.

    HoopsHype.com has calculated Fields impact on the cap incorrectly. Despite a salary of $5M, $5.25M, and $8M his cap hit for Toronto is an equal $6.25M per season as HoopsWorld.com has.

    Any signing of Carl Landry is going to come from 2013-14 cap space/exceptions. All my points have been made referring to 2013-14. The earliest the Raptors would be able to obtain Landry is after July 1st so we are now in to 2013-14 NBA calendar year.
    Man...new CBA rules giving me a headache....and by the time I get used to them, they'll probably go in to negotiate the next one.

    *Apron issue extra confusing...I was trying to figure why they wouldn't be able to offer full MLE if they could even scale back their cap number for next year going into the signing period...ie through amnestying Kleiza, or possibly cutting a bit of payroll on a Bargs trade.

    As a backup Landry i think would be great. However everyone seems to complain saying Amir isn't starting material which i argue. Dude may be the best player on raptors this year. I would love to get a millasap or west or still even pau if nothing else than his crazy expiring contract and his mentorship of Jonas, however im not sure how realistic that all is. Landry is somewhat realistic. I would be ok if it happened and it would improve us. There are ways to improve us more but that would make us a better team.

    Carl Landry doesn't immediately jump out as a Colangelo type of player. This looks like a Casey request through and through.

    I think Pooka says what we are all pretty much thinking but just dont have the balls to say, hehehe.

    Problem is, what everybody says on this site is pretty much speculation and based on opionion hence the term "forum".

    as long as i have been following the NBA, when its thrown out there, you know there's some truth to it. these rumors may not materialize and we all conclude that "see, it wasnt true" after the fact, but it always comes out later on that rumors were indeed half decent truths.

    we oftentime brush aside a "source" as fabricated, but you have to consider that within each team, there are hundereds and hundreds of employees, it just takes one to tell another, and it can spread like wildfire.

    oh and in reply to the post, nah, pass on Landry please.

    Honestly can't decide how I feel about that...Do I trust Casey's judgment more? Of course, do I trust Colangelo's at all??

    Easy way to think about it:

    If you use the full MLE you essentially have a hard cap of $74M.

    Yeah, I got that...that's a really strange and unfortunate rule. Players really got fucked in that CBA. No wonder they want Hunter gone.

    So, my responding to the legitimacy of the original post's inaccurate reference to media babble is highjacking the thread (hmmm, somehow I thought the original post is the point), and you're now having a hissy fit over me not following some nebulous Nilballsa rule for posting, because I called your cowardly poke at me what it is. Awwwwwww, need a hug?

    WHY WON'T PEOPLE REALIZE AMIR IS THE BEST PLAYER ON THE TEAM!!!! Him and Lowry are the teams 2 most productive players, since we pretty much have the same core locked in for at least three more years, why would we ever move him. That being said I would be fine with Carl Landry, he certainly beats Landry Fields as the back up 4.

    I would love to have Landry here. He was important piece in the Rockets and Hornes in the playoffs. He was playing on every close game down the stretch. He has many good and efficient low post moves. He is undersized but he is very skilled.His defense is average if not good. Definitely an upgrade over Ed Davis and Bargnani. I would love to have him on the team as back up PF behind Amir. Of course that is assuming Bargnani is gone. 3-5 mil per year for 2 year deal would be great.

    I admit some nights he is the best player on the team. But most fans would like us not only as a playoff team but a contender. They want someone like Boozer who is an upgrade over Amir...it was hard for me to admit. I am a huge Amir fan. Fields was signed to be a SF. Casey likes small ball - that is why he sometimes plays the 4 but he is a true SF who is capable to play at the SG as well and PF with small ball lineups.

    Makes sense. Vice-versa if necessary.

    Going around calling people Niballsa, and continuing to reply to each other in manners obviously not necessary isn't needed here.

    I'm still trying to figure out whether "Nilballsa" was an insult or a type-o :|
