Quote from well known personality who led their high school team to a state championship.“As a captain, I played furiously. I drew a lot of fouls, but I brought everything I had to every practice and to every game. I left everything on the court because I simply wanted the team to win”

Sorry. That's more than 50, but you get my point. Obviously most of those guys aren't available, but there are a great number that very well might be. Instead of going after guys who aren't quite what you want, simply because they're available, I'd rather concentrate my effort on guys who i'd really want on my team. I think if you look at that list, you can figure out the type of player I like.
I mean, I totally get your point, and Harris does have his deficiencies, but really? Jeff Foster? Ronny Turiaf? You're talking about preferring career backups to an all-star caliber player.
I could maybe get behind that idea if the Raps were already contending, and already had an all star caliber player to lean on, but if Bosh leaves the cupboard is relatively bare. This team can add all the Jeff Fosters and Ronny Turiafs in the world, they still won't be anything resembling contenders without a star player. That's life in the NBA.
Props on the list though...that is fucking thorough, and I agree with much of it.
I actually hope the T-wolves get the top pick, for two reasons. One, because I want to see them select three point guards in the lottery in two years (it would remind me when they kept drafting centers many years ago). The other one is to facilitate a trade I will propose on my blog after the lottery.
As for the list, I just looked at a list of the players on Hoopshype and typed them in. I don't know how thorough it is, since I realized I missed at least one player- Dejuan Blair. Besides, I needed to do something else, and typing it up was a great way to avoid it.

I think Harris is awesome and would take him over any player on the raptors. I don't know why Tim hates him so much. His value is low now because of his off year last year, he's easily the best piece rumored in possible S&T's.
I hope BC doesn't trade Bosh to NJ though, if they get a top two pick and land Bosh, they are looking at home court for the play offs next year.
As in, he would rather BC pursue a trade in which we give up a little to get a Turiaf or Foster than one where we give up what would be necessary to get Harris.
I just think the only way we would get Harris would be to S&T Bosh for him, in which case you have to measure it up only against the other Bosh trade options.
Alright, I get what you're saying but most the guys you listed are either unattainable or would cost too much to acquire.
