    Default Available PFs and FAs

    Ok what we know so far

    1) Al Jeff signed with Bobcats
    2) Millsap signed with Hawks
    3) J.Smith signed with Pistons
    4) C.Copeland signed with Pacers

    Who are the remaining PFs left, should we go hard at either D.West or L.Aldridge or will these two remain with their respectable team. Should we really take G.Monroe off of Pistons by giving them Rudy Gay + fillers (Kleiza, Lowry)

    A Good PF is hard to find these days, established ones are even harder to attract to play for the Raptors.

    The master has returned.

    Edit: Millsap would've been great. We have no chance at West though, Pacers wouldn't trade him

    I don't think we can take Monroe from Pistons with Gay

    By the way, Carl Landry signed a deal.

    I would consider this deal if they wanted to make it:

    To Pistons- Gay, Lowry, Knicks 2016 pick

    To Raptors- Carlie V, Stuckey, Knight, Monroe

    Not sure if it works exactly like that but the salaries must be close to fitting, we would have multiple young assets major cash over the next couple seasons and a good chance at at high pick next year... Not saying I'd do it for sure but I would have to think about it

    Raps get raped IMO

    Lowry and gay are off books next year or year after for gay.

    Knight is backup.
    Stucky and cv are crap
    Deal is basically gay/Lowry/1st for Monroe

    Remove us sending that Knicks pick, and make it KCP instead of Knight, and that becomes much more doable.

    I'm also a no. I'd rather start Amir at PF and Gay at SF than have Monroe at PF and ??? at SF

    raped is a little strong, you have to give something up to get something, if Monroe keeps going like he is now he might be the best player in that deal and i think he would make a nice combo with Valanciunas, Monroe had 16 ppg and 9.6 reb in his third year so saying we get raped is ridiculous Rudy Gay had 18 ppg and 6 reb, plus Monroe only makes 3.2 mill and Rudy makes 18
    i guarantee that is the type of deal MU is looking to make

    now that i checked the stats i would make that trade for sure those two would be one of the best frontcourt pairings in the league and we would keep all our young players with an eye to next years draft

    Edit: i think Monroe is probably the best player in that deal right now and we would have 17 mill coming off the books at the end of the year instead of waiting one more for Rudy to clear, i like Gay as much as anyone we have but i bet you right now that he leaves after his contract is done, same with Lowry, if you want to hitch the team's future to those two players i think you need to give your head a shake...

    Raped might be strong. Definitely aggravated sexual assault though

    Your rationale is great on Rudy vs. Monroe but you also gave them a starting PG for a guy who is looking more and more like a combo guard off the bench in Knight.

    If you want to do a deal for Monroe/filler and Gay, I could get behind that. Not so much support for throwing in Lowry without getting more assets back.

    thats fine, i really liked Lowry when we got him and i cant wait to see if he can turn it around this year, i just think that the deal is more realistic this way because they have to take the Gay contract...if they really offered those two scrubs for Gay then we would be giving them Lowry and a protected pick and they throw in Monroe and Knight... i think you are not giving Monroe the value he holds as a younger player looking good with a tiny contract, also i just cant see a long term future with Gay and Lowry on the team now that MU is the GM, do you really see us signing both of them once their deals expire?
    I think it would be a good idea to do a Lowry ext. sooner rather then later if he starts playing d

    i just watched Orlando in summer league(...i know it is summer league and is basically nothing to base anything off, but...) i really like Moe Harkless and Nicholson(not sure if thats how it's spelt...), would you do DD for Afflalo, harkless, and Nichlson?

    Edit: if we were really trying to trade DD for Bledsoe (a deal i was hoping for...) i think MU wants Lowry gone, also knight had 13.3 ppg 3.3 reb and 4.0 ast in this his second year, while Lowry had 11.6 4.7 and 6.4 which is better but not much and in lowry's second year he had 9.6 3.1 and 3.2 so how Knight looks like a back-up and Lowry looks like starter is not really making that much sense to me, because he had more assists i guess...Knight also makes half the money that Lowry does and Knight shot 0.5 % better from three point range

    Don't suppose Monroe is now available with J Smoove in Motown? They'll probably be asking for alot though...

    Kyle Lowry Is not a filler

    Would you guys take Kirilenko and play him at the 4? He's a pretty decent rebounder and shot blocker.
