    Comment From Kevin
    Have the Raptors made Rudy Gay, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry all available?
    12:54

    Sam Amico: Not DeRozan, as far as I can tell, Kevin.
    12:56

    Sam Amico: Here's the thing, kids: You can land just about anyone but maybe five or six guys in this league. But making a trade is a very, very difficult process. That's why all the rumors are usually wrong. Teams need to change terms, etc., to actually make deals work at the last minute.
    12:56

    Sam Amico: But when you ask if Team X received calls about Player X, the answer is almost always yes.

    DD lovers rejoice!!!!!!!


    Its really common sense......He's on a manageable contract for the next 4 years and he's only 23.....There are other issues with the roster that should be dealt with before even considering to trade Demar. I think that's what many fans are saying right now.

    I'm glad it appears that DD is not available and i hope it continues to stay that way unless someone comes with an offer we cant refuse.

    Everyone can relax!

    Collison won't be signed and traded in any deal for DeRozan:

    I think Bledsoe had too much value to be coming off the bench. They were able to flip him and acquire Reddick and Dudley

    Because they weren't solidifying their SG position by standing pat.

    That was a big part of it. Also Bledsoe was likely going to get a hefty raise next year.

    So Clips traded Bledsoe and signed Collison??? why
    Keeping Bledsoe would have meant:

    - keeping a valuable commodity on the bench (therefore being less productive to the team)
    - while still having a 'hole' on the team (not filling an area that lacked production)

    In the mean time holding him would have risked the loss of (or devaluation of) him as an asset when next season came around. Bledsoe's inevitable raise would have been expensive for the Clippers to match, and a s&t usually (but not always) brings in a smaller return than a normal trade

    Keeping Bledsoe would be a decrease in production and value to the team. The biggest benifit to keeping him would have been insurance in case of a Chris Paul injury, but that would have been very expensive insurance to pay (in terms of asset value not $ cost).
