    Default Are Ujiri and Co. Really Keeping It This Tight Lipped...

    or is nothing of real substance going on?

    I mean..the Detroit offer leaked. The Camby wanting a buy-out leaked. The Bargnani trade leaked.

    Not that any of that mattered if it got leaked. But, there's been nothing since...

    Not even in the slightest. The biggest news is Landry Fields off-season plans and Aaron Gray getting engaged.

    Maybe they are still mulling blowing up the team. Even though i feel that might be the best option at this point. imo.

    Detroit leaked the trade rumour.

    The Camby situation was pretty much a given, and came from Camby's camp.

    I guess the Bargs trade leaked, but I don't remember....did it come from NY media?

    My experience suggests leaks are just as often disinformation.

    There probably isn't anything to be leaked. My guess is he's making calls, but Ujiri is going to wait until GM's are desperate then fleece them. This could be slow and painful, but it will pay off later.

    We could always hope for a 'Turkoglu' bomb to drop I guess, but this could be a boring offseason/season

    Completely agree. I think fans (including myself) want to beleive that Ujiri is working on a big trade that will make us into contenders/comptetive but that is the same sort of hope that keeps crappy players in a Raptors far too long.

    The most likely scenario is that we will plug any holes on the roster with bargain basement talent/contracts and roll into this season with the same team as the last. I would further speculate that Ujiri will trade whomever he can for picks and prospects by the trade deadline.

    I don't care who it came from, it still got leaked..kind of missing the point.

    Yes, so then Ujiri and Co. can't keep shit quiet. As much as they keep their ship tight, the other ships will leak. So, then by default raps can't keep their ship from leaking...

    If you have two ships in a lake and one is leaking it does not mean the other one is leaking. If your basement floods, it does not mean that mine has. It just means that the expensive vintage porn collection I kept stored in your basement is now ruined. I guess where I am going with this is that you owe me $57,900 dollars.

    Actually, you're missing the point. The source of the leak matters a great deal because each party has an agenda. By never leaking anything themselves, Toronto is keeping their agenda completely unknown. This is what matters because it gives them more negotiating power as teams will struggle to piece together their strategy.

    So because the Knicks, Clippers, and Pistons leaked information about discussions, this means that no talks could be had without information being leaked? How do the Spurs regularly make moves that were never talked about publically?

    There are well run franchises that do manage to keep their discussions quiet....the Knicks are easily not one of them (both in being well-run and keeping things quiet).
