    Default Raptors' realistic trade values

    Trade values are set by the market, just because one team has a need for a player, they aren't going to offer significantly more than the next highest bidder for that player.

    I see a lot of work with the Trade Machine hashing out complex salary transfers. I want to instead focus on our guys' values on the free market. What kind of talent can they bring back? What is the minimum you would move our guys for?

    Likely
    Lowry - late first round (25+)
    Amir - late first rounder
    Demar - mid first round + diminutive prospect
    Hansborough/Novak - probably used as sweeteners to push one of the above from likely to ideal scenarios

    Ideally
    Lowry - mid first round (13 - 18)
    Amir - mid first rounder or 2 early 2nd round picks (31-40)
    Demar - top 10 2014

    If we take back future picks instead of ones for 2014, I think we can get those ideal situations.

    To keep in mind: Lowry as a rental is attractive to teams looking to compete this year, but isn't in our long term plans so likely won't be with whichever team he is traded to either.

    Also, Demar is still a big question mark to most executives. Has he really improved?

    I think your analysis is why so many proposals include the Raptors taking back bad contracts (ie: Boozer, Perkins, etc...) in addition to giving up the most talented player, in an attempt to maximize returns targeting the 2014 draft (with the assumption that rebuilding is a 2-3 year process, so taking on salary next season isn't a bad thing).

    Default Why do people think teams will trade us draft picks?

    In most of these trade threads I see people coming up with ways that draft picks will come back to us, but why do people think any GM in the league is willing to trade a pick in a year that's supposed to be on par with the 2003 and 1996 class?

    Especially when you consider that there are only 2 contenders in the East and maybe 4 in the West. Why do you guys think any team would give us a draft pick to lose to those 6 in the 1st or 2nd round?


    *ugh, I can't edit my spelling mistake on the title. Someone fix that for me. k, thx.

    There are plenty of moron GMs in the league. This is my honest answer.

    I know you didn't post this in this thread, but late first round picks shouldn't be too hard to get. The heat and pacers of the world probably aren't willing to wait several years for a mediocre prospect to develop

    Well Washington traded a top-12 protected draft pick for Gortat.

    I definitely don't think you're getting any lottery picks in a trade period. But potentially you could get a mid-round or late 1st from either a team on the brink that's looking to maybe make a playoff run, or a serious contender looking to put their team over the top.

    That being said I literally just saw a rumor that the Knicks want Lowry. Getting Shumpert for him would be gold to say the least.
