As of today, I say Lowry, DeRozan, Ross, Valanciunas are keepers and the rest can be packaged on a deal. I say if we really wanna make a push for the playoff when Feb and March comes around, we need a legit PF. I don't think Amir is our answer. On some nights, he can chip in 15+ pts but some nights, he diminishes and scores 2 pts at the most. We need a borderline star PF for this team so I propose a trade.
Toronto out: Amir Johnson, Fields, 2016 1st round pick (NYK)
Toronto in: Carlos Boozer
Why Toronto: We get Boozer who's an instant upgrade over Amir and when playoff comes around, I think Boozer will show us why we need someone like him when going up against the likes of the Bobcats, Pacers, or the Heat. We might push to the second or conference final with Booz. Beside it will be his expiring year next year, so we can trade him next year.
Why Chicago: The Bulls well, maybe need some retool given the fact that D-Rose might not return to the lineups anytime soon. They get a young PF in Amir, Landry Fields might find his groove as a Bull, and a future 1st round pick (NYK) by shedding Booz's contract
