    Default Ideas for off-season changes? Read this first

    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.

    All things CBA - Larry Coon NBA CBA FAQ

    NBA Player Contracts and Team Salary information - HoopsWorld.com

    2013 NBA Free Agents - HoopsWorld.com

    NBA Draft Picks owed and owing - RealGM

    NBA Trade machine - ESPN


    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?

    Biedrins just declined his ETO. I see potential for a Bargs move. Biedrins sucks, but his contract is shorter and maybe we can get them to sweeten the pot a little bit (Machado, Ezeli, or Green)

    I don't think they send another player. Ezeli and Green fit VERY well into their rotation. Machado...I don't want Machado. I don't understand this neverending fascination with him because he played well at a shit school in college. Lillard was the exception to the rule, not the norm.

    BUT, apart from that, Biedrins/Jefferson (both have awful, but expiring, contracts) are obvious choices for GSW to trade to try and upgrade their team. Does Bargnani fit that? IMO, only if Carl Landry walks. Then, considering the amount of young players on their team, I don't think they're too attached to draft picks and could easily tack one on to Biedrins/Jefferson in order to add a piece. THe problem is they don't have a 2013 pick (going to Utah)...and do they trade a 2014 pick???

    I would only do that deal if they sweeten it somehow. I have no fascination with Machado...over-react much? He's 1 of only a few players on their roster whom they might include in a trade to get rid of Biedrins. The fact that Bargs' trade value has fallen so much that even the expectations of his fan-boys (such as myself) are pessimistic about what we'd get in return....fml

    Maybe not you specifically, but pretty frequently someone will post something about Machado. It gets a bit ridiculous. As if he's the solution to our PG position.
