    At the suggestion of thead, before you go making suggestions with what the Raptors should do, know the rules and if what you suggest is even possible as it will save time and pixels.

    Larry Coon is most important. All the break downs on exceptions, trade rules, free agency, etc. found in there.

    Only teams that have cap space can place bids on amnesty - Raps have no cap space.

    I don't think Kobe gets through the waiver wire if he was amnestied and even if he did I don't think he willingly coming to the Raptors for vet minimum. Kobe has made it pretty clear in his career he only wants to be playing for championships.

    Kobe won't be amnestied. LA would lose his bird rights and won't be able to afford him due to cap restrictions, assuming they bring back Dwight at the max.

    The real reason they don't amnesty him is because he'll be back by the start of the season. I can't imagine that he won't be; that's what Kobe does these days.

    Yeah, if you had read the links you would have seen none of that is possible.

    Thanks for making the point on the reason for the linked information to begin with.

    Default New thoughts for Raptors

    Ok for us to make a run into the finalist spot 2013/14 in my opinion two things must happen

    1.) Get rid of Dwane Casey he is not getting us anywhere last season should have been a play off one

    2.) Get an all-star caliber point guard a possible trade containing, bargnani (bad), kyle lowery (good but no all-star), derozan (good player but not gonna get any better and has shoes that T ross can fill), feilds (not a player we need at all).

    3.) So our starting line up might look something like:

    Lillard
    Gay
    Johnson
    Valanciunas
    Ross

    Any thoughts?

    or Barnes if we had of won the coin flip. imagine bigv, Davis,Barnes,demar and lowry. no gay monetary handcuffs and the ability to absorb monies(moneys?) in the outgoing of bargs. fucking coin flip.

    I don't have the link but I saw that masai wants to jettison bargs by July. are non playoff or eliminated teams allowed to trade right now? I'd like him to get rid of bargnani grab that 13th pick and another mid to late 20s pick. I really think kabongo can make it in the league.

    Next time put capital letters, because this one went totally wrong, when I read it.
