    Default Raptors 2014 Free Agency: non-Raptors thread

    Sorry, I know there is a free agent thread but it isn't on the first 3 pages. So a mod can mash these together or let it go on its own.

    Just saw this list from ESPN

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/99...ents-2014-2015

    i would look at livingston, collison(opted out) if lowry walks, stiemsma, gray, marvin williams and maybe jimmer

    i think pheonix is going to match bledsoe. which means at least max money. i don't think he is worth max. i would like to grab our #20 and add him to the rotation. get a couple prospects to let age in europe and the d-league. bring back gray, add steimsma

    man i'd sign livingston in a heartbeat. dude can play 3 positions and is a good defender. he's obviously not as athletic as he was coming into the league but his iq is through the roof and dude is looooooong.

    Livingston and Lowry would cause significant problems for teams, better duo than Lowry and gravy? Especially on defence

    with livingston you could play him as a point forward type roll with the second unit leaving GV to do what he does best, score.

    I'm a big Livingston fan as well. Him and Marvin Williams would be good signings.

    If we could afford him I think everyone would be happy to have him as the first wing off the bench. Draft a defensive Sf(mcdaniels or Grant) and suddenly we have a good wing rotation.

    Cleanthony Early from Wichita State would be a good add too. Plus he's a better shooter than both of those guys

    Yeah, but he plays, like, zero defense ever. Hard pass.

    Funny you say hard pass as Early is one of the least-willing passers in the draft. He's unfamiliar with this "hard pass" term.

    If Lowry does walk, I would like the idea of bringing in Deng. A starting five of
    Vasquez, DeRozan, Deng, Amir, and Jonas with Ross coming off the bench and possibly drafting Ennis doesn't sound too bad.

    Deng was just at Masai's function as well but I haven't heard anything in the rumor mill about him... I know the event had nothing to do with Raptors, but it still intrigued me that he was there.

    Not a fan of signing deng at all. He's an okay 3 point shooter and especially if Lowry walks, that starting line up's best shooter is a streaky Vasquez. Teams would play us zone all day. We need spacing from our 3, which is why putting Ross in worked.

    Nope, if Lowry walks, we need an upgrade at PG above all else - go all in for Bledsoe, or if that fails, the team as constructed will struggle. So if no Bledsoe, tear it down. Deng doesn't solve any of our issues - he's not the defender Thibodeau makes him seem, and he's just as inefficient as DD offensively.

    If Lowry walks you don't blow it up, and you don't go all in on Bledsoe/Deng/Monroe/etc. You bring back GV, get a guy like Sessions as backup PG.. then go into free agency in 2015 with lots of cash and then sign Rondo. Or scour the trade market for a good PG on a team that isn't going anywhere (Teague from Atlanta, possibly Lawson from Denver).

    Yuck. So, waste this year entirely? Or overpay with assets to get an established PG? You either go all in with this core, or you rebuild. Incremental steps only work if they are in the right direction. With Lowry gone, the only way to keep moving forward is to add top talent immediately. Even with Bledsoe in the fold, you still have enough cap room in 2015 to make a splash (not a max guy, but a solid Lowry-level player). If you can't build immediately, there's no point in putting together a .500 team.
