    If they waive one of the expirings, and sign two of the camp contract guys, they will be in the tax. They won't do that, not for an end-of-bencher. And they won't stretch the waived player either, eating into valuable 2015 and 2016 cap room.

    The Dudley trade is similar to the cost to move Fields , a protected first.
    I disagree on the cost.

    There is definitely a cost to move him but Dudley had 2 years left on his deal. It is the 2nd year that cost the pick. Fields is up this year.

    Bucks took salary back. Trading an expiring would cost at least a first round pick. Our pick is more valuable than the Clippers

    I believe taking back salary in late august when just about all the free agent dealing with said salary expiring in April is less costly than taking back salary in late august that won't expire until two Aprils during which another free agency will take place.

    Just my opinion and happy to disagree.

    So which move makes logical financial sense? Holding on to these guys until the trade deadline? Letting them expire at the end of the season?

    Right now he is an end of rotation player AT BEST.

    There are a lot of guys in the league who can fill that need at lower than $8.6M - remember he is in the final year of his poison pill deal. He is only a $6.23M cap hit but he costs over $8.
    $6.25M, but yes.

    Uh, we tossed Novak's two years for a second rounder. No need for a first rounder.

    I say let them expire unless there is a trade to be had at the deadline that improves the team long term. No need to be trading future assets to be clearing room for the likes of Cherry or Hamilton.

    Either trade them (but don't give up draft picks) or just let them expire.

    What can we get from Philly, a rumour circulating the 76ers: Jerami Grant, Dario Saric (prospect), or Alexey Shved?

    Personally I like to see we trade Fields to Sixers for Shved + 2015 2nd rounder, then we waive Cherry and have Shved being our third string PG

    Saric is going nowhere. The Philly rookies and some of the front office went to the FIBA World Cup to hang out with him.




    No clue where you got the bunk rumor.

    Also, hell no on Jerami Grant. And why would they trade Shved?

    what reputation do you think landry fields has in the rest of the league?
    As I've said, for one reason or the other, it has not been apparent in Toronto but Landry IMO has earned the reputation of being a reliable defender and a decent scorer who when/if necessary can also play at PF.

    Everything to do with Landry Fields depends on whether or not he has made any progress with his shooting. Has the extra time since last March/April allowed rehabilitation and improved shooting? If yes. then he is definitely a trade chip...but if his shooting has improved, then maybe the Raps want him on the floor. If his shootingnhas improved and the injury healed, or at least improved, he could possibly be resigned for a lot less than his current salary, and probably at less than market value because of concerns.

    Under that scenario (improved shooting and under market value) I want him on the team. The Raps need several "under market value" players so they can afford to pay more for all-stars, to get to where they want to be.

    Trade Landry, but keep Hayes. Hayes has a good repoir with Lowry, and provides a good, veteran presence for young bigs like JV and Bebe. Plus, there are going to be times where JV's inexperience is being exploited by opposing vet bigs and Hayes is handy at times like that.

    If he's made progress and returns to form he will be good but at this point, Raps. will be better off trading him. Considering he is in the final year of his contract and teams will most probably show interest, Raps. should take advantage.

    I agree that "under value" players are good to have so cap room is created and Masai has shown the inclination and ability to sign such players or even trade for them.
