    Default Bosh Trades - For the Administrators

    Hello higher ups of Raptors Republic.

    I wanted to do the research but i thought id ask you instead.
    Who are the teams that have the money to sign Bosh during the summer? Who are the possible sign and trade partners for Toronto and who would be the players who'd most likely get traded for or with Bosh??

    Enlighten us with your wisdom!!!!!

    Please no crap like Monta/Biedrins for Bosh because we all know that GSW will not release Monta, you know, trades that are possible, considering all options.

    Thank you and do you need another regular writer?? ehem, ehem.

    I would recommend you read up on some of the sites here: Apollo's NBA Fan Essentials

    Some teams who can outright sign him and are legit possibilities would be the Knicks, Heat and Bulls.

    S&T possibilities? Well, based on season rumors the Lakers, Knicks and Heat need to be on there. Beyond them I would add some Texan teams to the mix like the Rockets, Spurs and Mavs.

    I'm sure the Nets will come knocking about signing him or, depending on interest, possible S&T's. Throw in Oklahoma because Durant said he's going into recruit mode this off-season and they have cap. These two teams are less likely in my mind.

    2 months ago I would never have suggested the raps let Bosh go, but I think a S&T with the Knicks that includes David Lee would make the most sense out of what would realistically be out there. With Lee crashing the boards in his usual fashion Bargs would have more offensive plays to work with while not having to become the next Rodman during this off-season. I think whoever takes on Bosh's max money deal will regret it in year 4 when his body is broken down(think Jermaine O'Neal over the last two seasons). No knock against CB or JO they both will give you the effort but them skinny bigs tend to age quicker then usual. Not even KG was immune to the skinny big effect.

    Any team is a sign-and-trade partner as long as they're willing to go over the cap.

    The following teams can offer Bosh a max-money contract:

    Knicks
    Heat
    Wizards
    Bulls
    Kings
    Timberwolves
    Clippers
    Nets

    That's for the big wigs Arse, Sam and Scott to decide, but why not practice here and show us some of your work on our forums.

    Speaking of Lee:
    Here’s a kind of verbatim conversation I had with a fellow before last night’s game. Him first.

    “What about Bosh?”

    “I think he’s gone but six week ago I thought he was staying so who knows.”

    “Sign-and-trade?" “That’s what they want.”

    “David Lee?”

    “Sure, and something really good with him. That seems to be what the people want.”

    “Makes sense.”

    “Tell me about Lee.”

    “If you put him out there with Bargnani and Turkoglu it might be the worst defensive front court in the history of basketball. But he’s a good guy.”

    “Hmm. That might be enough.”

    Actually Golden State is looking to get rid of Monta to make more room for Curry. This has actually been a story for a large part of the year, so maybe you should do a little research before making assumptions. Might help your case for regular writer a bit.

    Yea, I'm only on board for David Lee if Bargs and Turk are gone as well. He has inflated stats on a bad team without any rebounding and has been in back to back contract years. Something tells me he wants to get inked and take a year off.

    GS has no need for a PF, they have Randolph who has once in a generation talent and Brandon Wright, a hidden gem. If they want to give us either or both, hopefully BC will oblige them.

    I think he goes Heat or Bulls, but Heat apparently love Amare. Bulls would work, but I don't see us getting back anything more then Taj Gibson and maybe a pick which will be useless after the Bulls go to the Eastern Conference finals next year.
    If he goes bulls, BC should force them to do a Jose for Hinrich swap, that would make it all worth it.

    Default Bosh is going to LA

    You heard it here first: If the Lakers fail to repeat as champions, Bosh (and perhaps Calderon, too) is going to Lakers for Pau Gasol. It makes too much sense for both teams.

    Gasol does NOT make sense for Toronto. He is basically a Euro version of Bosh, plus we saw where he managed to take the Grizzlies when he was their franchise player. Bosh for Bynum, and if Bynum can stay healthy it would make sense.

    Who knows, but you're hardly the first to suggest this. I've read it a few times - even today:

    (or was it you who leaked it to Sam Smith?)

    I agree with Kennay, it doesn't make sense for either team. I think both would say no.

    The lakers would never give up that much and they love Gasol. They need a point guard. Flipping big men makes no sense, especially when Gasol is more marketable to the Latin American community.

    Default S&T Bosh

    It would be best for us to trade Bosh to Oklahoma for Jeff Green. This actually makes sense to OKC because Bosh is an upgrade for them. Can we trade Turkoglu for a rebounder - look at DuJuan Blair last night or Brandon Bass - Yes I know the $$ don't work, just ideas flowing here. Most important is a new coach with an actual defensive scheme. AB has the potential play positional defence if told how to do it - just don't expecta rebounder out of him, but he can block shots.

    Oh, im sorry Kennay, didnt know you were part of the hiring committee!

    The GSW never really said they were going to trade Monta nor they pitched trade offers to other teams involving him. speculation arose that they might want to move him because of his initial attitude towards curry, and then he got injured and curry stepped up. The GM already indicated that Monta "is not going anywhere" because with him and curry, they have the highest scoring backcourt in the NBA.

    i guess i did do my research so does that make me a qualified writer now?

    Andrew Bynum? R u f**kin kidding me?? hahaha remember when kobe said that in the parking lot?? hahaha

    He's good but i think he's a bit injury prone. in 5 seasons with the lakers, he only managed to play 287 games. He missed a total of 123 games. Thats like a season and a half, and he's only 23. What more when he puts in a full season? his body might break down and youll be stuck with a hefty, useless contract (13mil a year). And you dont want Gasol, but he is more efficient than Bynum. He's averaging 18-11-3-1.7 this year, and that was sharing time with Bynum. Imagine if he was the only center in LA, he'd probably be averaging in the 20s. He's a big with good passing skills and he can run the floor pretty good, a perfect compliment to Bargs. He's a post player and defender and can knock down shots within 5-10 feet of the basket. He did get injured this year but he wouldve came back earlier but there was no urgency to rush him back because they had bynum and the Lakers werent really struggling that bad without him.

    A Euro version of Bosh? hahaha Have you seen Gasol get the ball from the top of the key and shoot the ball?? have you seen him get the ball, go face-up with a defender and then take a fadeaway J?? and youre telling me to do research???
    hahaha.

    I rest my case.

    GS turned down Mayo and Thabeet for Monta....I don't even think Jose's family likes him enough to take that trade.

    yeah, he'd be the NBA scoring champ and we'll be taking NJ's place in the standings. Do you really want a PG taking 25-30 shots a game? Might as well get him 4 centers to play with him and just rebound the ball.
