    Default Would This Trade Fix the Raptors?

    This isn't an official rumour, but a basketball columnist being bored and having fun with the ESPN Trade Machine.

    Ryan Wolstat from the Sun came up with this proposal.

    In the meantime, ESPN's trade machine is a great little time waster. I thought up a trade that possibly would set things right in Raptor-land, ie. the team would stop giving up a billion points a night and would actually win some games, thereby helping entice Chris Bosh to stay put next summer.

    The idea:

    Raptors trade:
    Andrea Bargnani, Jose Calderon, Marcus Banks, Patrick O'Bryant, future 2nd round pick.

    Clippers trade:
    Marcus Camby, Baron Davis, DeAndre Jordan, 1st round pick (top 12 protected).

    The Clippers end the flawed Davis experiment and get something for Camby who will leave this summer for nothing. Bargnani/Kaman/Griffin would be a deadly frontcourt rotation for years to come.

    The Raptors upgrade talent-wise significantly. Davis is moody and not always motivated, but surrounded by a veteran cast, he'd probably look pretty good again. Camby and Bosh would transform the Raptors from the worst defensive frontcourt in the league to an above average one that controls the glass.
    The team would free itself of some long-term commitments and have Jordan and the draft pick (plus extra money to re-sign Amir Johnson) to rebuild its front court once Camby leaves via free agency.
    Would you pull the trigger on such a deal?

    I like Bargs, I think he has a rediculous upside if they can get him playing D....but yah I'd take that deal. Camby is exactly the type of player we need and I always liked Baron Davis. And that Clippers frontcourt would definately be worth watching for years to come.

    Not to change the subject, but i think that Colangelo isn't the type of guy to admit he is wrong with such a huge trade, however:

    Jose for Andre Miller, it cant happen for another month or something b/c Andre is in base year, but who says no to this deal?

    Miller ain't working out in Portland, he would bring veteran leadership to this struggling team.
    Jose is a team player, could be the starter there without interrupting B-Roy's flow and his defensive shittiness could be hidden by oden...

    what do people think?

    I love Andre Miller but straight up isn't very mindful of long term plans. Where is Andre Miller going to be when the Raptors are ready to make some noise? Probably signing the vet minimum to hook in with a contender in a bench supporting role. The Raptors need to do better than that for Jose Calderon. If I were them I would be talking to the Nuggets about Ty Lawson and the Jazz about Eric Maynor...Not straight up but one of those names in the deal along with another young player like JR Smith or Ronnie Brewer would be great.
