Thread: Raptors Free Agent targets?

    I don't think most people on this forum realize how important Amir Johnson is to our defensive rotations. Ask yourselves, how many times have we seen a game turn around when Amir goes down/is taken out? Hell we wouldn't have been up by 20 at half last night if it weren't for Amir's 6 blocks, it would have just been open lanes all game. With Boozer, we'd be getting a horrible team defender who might help us on offense but would need the ball in his hands taking away from Jonas, Rudy and Demar as well as Ross. Amir is exactly the high-efficiency guy we need on offense, the type who doesn't need set plays to score. Plus, he's our best defender and rebounder and is starting to hit some long jumpers.

    No, people respect Amir here. The issue is whether he does his thing as a starter or if he improves the bench. The Raptor bench is BAD. Amir could be the first sub on for the PF or C position. That would dramatically improve the bench. I don't think that's necessary, if the Raps get a solid low cost big then all of Amir's pluses stays with the starters and they save a bit of money. Other's don't think that's viable, hence, they want to bring in a PF like Boozer.

    No one is under estimating Amir's presence on this team.

    Welcome to RR.

    Amir is greatly appreciated on this team.

    He can play 30 minutes coming off the bench just like he can starting.

    As was mentioned, the Raps bench sucks. He is a great benefit coming off it because he can play both PF and C plus he is a total class act, team player who plays balls out. Those guys are in short supply in starting lineups and pretty much non-existent coming off the bench.

    If boozer is on the table for bargs you make that trade and don't look back. I think Amir absolutely has earned the starting spot, and if we don't land a PF who can score down low and in the high post like booze you roll with him. But if you can get booze you do cuz Amir will still see 30mins like most ppl who've wtched all season have noted. Then you go after a back up pg someone like earl watson ( believe hes a FA and wouldn't be expensive) or CJ miles ( prolly won't leave bkn but you can try). Those are the type of back up pgs you need.

    I think if we can't trade bargs we amnesty him, and make a run at a veteran rotational PF like elton brand and a shooter or back up pg like korver/dunleavy or watson/miles.

    One more thing, despite devin harris' inconsistencies over the years ..hes a MAJOR upgrade to anything we currently have.
