    Default Perfect Fit for Bosh?

    Quick question for you all : which non-all star player would you consider as the perfect addition to CB4, not taking cap space into account ? Like the one that would make him (even) better ?

    Welcome to RR Fachie.

    Good question too. Considering our clear weakness is still the SG spot, a healthy Raja Bell would be appealing to me. Not really sure what other non-All-Star guys would be a fit for Bosh and the Raptors. Bell's tenacious perimeter defense and knack for hitting the clutch shot makes him pretty valuable to me if we were able to acquire his services.

    huh? bell? are we talking about bell from right now, or bell from '05? even then, it's a stretch to think a guy like bell would make bosh all that much better. i mean, bosh is pretty damn good now, so wouldn't it take an over-the-top kind of player to get much more out of him? or a guy who brings a special/unique skill-set or mentality?

    shit, i'd think that there are two guys just on the warriors roster that would help make bosh 'better' - curry & ellis - just in terms of their ability to knock down shAts & spread the floor. i mean, do you dare double down on bosh when you have curry running around capable of nailing anything from inside 30-feet?

    Welcome to RR

    I'll go with the easy answer: Shane Battier

    A lights out shooter at the 2 or 3 who can defend. Not easy to come by but that's what the Raps need to get to that next level I think.

    @ Jive Yeah you can't go wrong with Battier. Veteran with playoff experience, can knock down the three, and his defensive abilities don't even need to be mentioned.

    Not to mention all the possible pictures of them having the same celebratory expression after a win/bucket/casual dinner.

    I would love it if they went after Monta in the off-season. If there was a chance we could sign a guy like Camby(defense first center), I'd give up Bargs and possibly DeRozan to get him. But that's for another forum and
