    Default Draft Express: Trade Going Down Today or Tuesday

    Don't know if its Raptors related, so my apologies in advance for posting this in the "Everything Raptors' sub-forum. Just trying to be optimistic.

    This was via the Draft Express Twitter account:

    Something will go down tomorrow or Tuesday but I'm sworn to secrecy. Argh! RT @phillyfanatic84: Are you hearing any pre-draft Trade Chatter? about 19 hours ago via UberTwitter

    Maybe Hedont is out of here? Nice thought at least.

    Well, considering we're the most active of all NBA teams when it comes to trade talks right now (as per Chad Ford's article) the chances are pretty good that this trade tonight or tomorrow involves us.

    if this guy isn't bluffing and just won't spill the beans then somebody else will unless it's a reaslly big trade and if it had to do with the raps wouldn't a raps media person be givin out hints?

    Colangelo rarely gives anything away. If it's a big trade or a smaller trade and he's playing two parties against each other I'm not sure why he would want anything to get out.

    Why do I think we will see Dalembert in a Raps jersey next year....Leo better draft his apology letter.

    The timing is certainly interesting... I was wondering if Johnson/DeRozan/Weems being called to Toronto could potentially mean that BC wanted to inform them about being traded, maybe a big deal along the lines of Brand and either Iggy or #2 pick??? All speculation of course, but you never know! Regardless, I can't wait for the announcement, assuming the rumor is legit and the Raps are involved!

    Leo owes him nothing. I was in the gym in Hamilton for both games of the tournament when the falling-out occured. You could see that there was a problem by the end of the first game and it just got worse from there, but it was pretty obviously Dalembert's problem. Maybe Sammy should be drafting up the letter.

    Stop, stop! You're getting me all to excited lol

    It's funny, every summer, as raptors fan it's "next year, next year; let's look forward to next year."
    And for the past couple of seasons "next year" has been an utter disappointment. This is BC's third consecutive offseason makeover. Fingers crossed raps fans. I know mine are.

    I thought the fallout with Dalembert culminated in Europe, when Leo sent him packing? No?

    The latter. Trades usually start to rumble up around this time (a week or so before the draft), as most teams are eliminated and the GMs have a feel for what they want they're line ups to look like next year.
    For us, the big impeding obstacle that constricts BC in pulling too many moves, imo, is the pending decision of CB4.

    Nah July 1st is for the free agents. You can trade whatever your little heart desires. Unless ur the Celtics or Lakers!

    If im not mistaken Rafael was traded during the playoffs.

    Phil has been perfecting his hot tub machine so the lakers can undo the virtuoso trade of Artest for Ariza.

    I doubt BC is the first to make a move, there is so much volatility in the off season market place that unless its 360 windmill slam, there is little reason to jump the gun.

    I think M. Banks is going to be traded tomorrow for a 2nd round pick on 2016.

    July 1st players "become" free agents. It's kind of pointless because they can't sign with any team until the 10th.

    for sure! I have a call in to a "very important person" as we speak.

    sometimes, you get the scoop- and sometimes, not so much. I have heard that the Raps have a deal in the pipeline that should be announced within days- but thats as much info as I can get out of anyone at this moment. I know, its not breaking news, but thats just the nature of the biz. If I can get more, believe me, I will post it.
