    I think the Raptors merely need to have a 1st round draft choice. If a third team came in offering a late round pick going to the Raptors I think this would suffice. Can anyone confirm this?

    From Larry Coons FAQ, Q85:
    It is true you can't trade away 2 consecutive draft picks.

    However....

    Once the draft is done with, like the 2013 pick for Toronto, a team is free to trade another first round pick the next season, like the 2014 pick sticking with the example of Toronto.

    The two draft pick rule is forward looking.

    So right now 2014 can be traded but 2015 cannot unless another pick is acquired in 2014 or 2015 from another team.

    As soon as the 2014 draft is over, Toronto would hypothetically be free to trade both 2015 and 2016 picks because they have a 2016 pick coming from NY/DEN.

    This should be moved to the trade proposal forum should it not?

    I just feel like being a troll and moderating.

    Or a guy like Ryan Anderson maybe?

    Kevin Love isn't the only stretch 4 in the league that actually rebounds
    but, he's the best one

    Dude I don't have a problem with you, we just don't agree on John Wall's donation intent. Please let's not make this a thing or a rivalry or whatever, I'm not interested.

    And I'm not talking about Bargnani, I'd want a stretch four who can also rebound and play solid team defense.
    Raptors should do this deal but this doesn't seem like an ujiri type move. If we did this deal we would have to go after ilyasova

    We should get Rondo, he would be a huge boost over Lowry, Ross, Fields, and 1st rounders. We should also pry one of Courtney Lee or Olynyk from the team.

    Hahaha. Yes Rondo would be a huge boost over the 85 million players you just mentioned..I say trade the whole team including all the office staff and the towel boys for Rondo

    I'd keep Lowry, Fields, and Ross. If we still had Kleiza I would sell Ross, Fields, and Kleiza and the first rounder for Rondo.

    Edit: How old is Rondo?

    Wha? Kleiza? Really? How does... Nevermind. Not sure I want to know.

    Rondo is 27.

    I'd trade my stapler for a Ferrari too but neither is happening anytime soon.

    Umm some of you guys are a little crazy.

    If we can get Rondo without trading DD, Gay, Amir or Valanciunas.... that is a no-brainer basically unless they're asking for like 3 1st round picks or we have to take back G-Force. It's highly unlikely that we'd be able to pull this off though anyway.

    Hassan mentioned Ilyasova as a secondary move. He would be an absolutely perfect fit in that lineup although I have no idea what we would offer for him.

    Getting Rondo and Olynyk in the same deal would be highway robbery. Not sure how KO would fit in though, with JV set as our long term center.

    Bench scoring is easy to find. Elite players are not.

    We're giving up alot for rondo (I know Ross and Fields play like shit half of the time but we need them) its not like he's going to take us any further than lowry would take us

    Why do you think we need Ross and Fields?

    Because without them Demar is the only shooting guard left on the team.

    So you're assuming after we lose those two we don't sign anyone to take their spots on the roster?
