    PJ Tucker, Marvin Williams, Deng, Ariza (probably going back out west), I would probably choose as my Salmons replacement over Carter if the money and term was right. We don't have a Juwan Howard or a Hakeem Olajuwon (you probably forgot he signed with us in his last season) slot on this team next year. 37/38 is still 37/38 I don't care if you are Ray Allen or Kevin Garnett, this team doesnt have that luxury to have players that are that late in their career.

    Honestly, I believe what we do with our first wing off the bench is our most important off-season decision after signing Lowry.
    Those guys are ideal for us because they can handle the bigger SF in this league
    Like a puppy- you mean like a baby dog?

    Only way to get Deng Ariza etc is to dump Fields and Novak.We're paying for a SF we just aren't using him.

    Deng looks broken down and Ariza is lazy. Fields is an expiring so he'll probably be around til the trade deadline, Novak is locked in on an unfavorable contract but maybe some team might be desperate enough perimeter help.

    I think Vince is the play along with a backup center and then you can package Fields and/or Hayes at the deadline if necessary for something.

    I am really not into bringing back carter just to bring him back and go through all this forgiveness bull crap that MLSE is trying to force down our throats ... he quit on the team and he wanted out and that's on him even though the franchise was crap as well your still responsible for your own actions etc etc etc

    but on a side note he would be a good redemption story line if he was a major part of helping us win a championship

    If MLSE brings him back I will swallow my words because he is still a top 100 player in the league, which would automatically make him The Raptors 4th best player...maybe 3rd best. And if he was brought off the bench, as he is in Dallas, what a boost to the bench. I caught the end of a Dallas game a couple of nights ago and they were down by 1 with 1:45 to go in the fourth, and Carter was on the floor. He got 2 rebounds and scored a basket during that time. If he is good enough for be on the floor for closing time for Dallas in a tight game, he's good enough to come off the Raptors bench. He got 16 points, 2 rebounds and an assist in 25 minutes. Still playing 25 minutes a game at his age. I would take him over Salmons in a second.

    agree with you on all points I was taking more about the off the court issues and I guess im the same as you if he became a raptor again im still a raptor fan first and foremost so I would cheer for him too to excel
