With news the Raptors are looking to trade away anyone and everyone who could contribute to wins, here are my fears:New Raptors front-office boss Masai Ujiri has managed to trade away Andrea Bargnani and now Gay over the past six months to create financial flexibility going forward and -- with Toronto apparently determined to avoid any accidental success in the Atlanta Division -- is said to be happy to surrender veteran point guard Kyle Lowry next.
The priority in Toronto is clearly finishing as high as possible in the lottery with Canadian sensation Andrew Wiggins and several other top prospects expected to be available to teams picking at the top of the June draft. Lowry is in the final year of his contact at an affordable $6.2 million and believed to be eminently available because he's not part of Toronto's future plans.
1) Rudy was a really bad influence in the locker room and on the floor. With him gone the players come together on and off the court.
2) Guys start being *gasp* professional and take insult at the insinuation they suck and are key cogs in a tank machine. See Evan Turner comments or Jared Sullinger comments.
Hopefully the fact talent matters in the NBA becomes a real issue and we are not forced to watch another crap Casey team over achieve..... although this time around I don't think Masai passes on a Drummond equivalent.
