    Default Should the Raptors Pursue a S&T with Miami?

    The new poll on the site asks this question:

    http://raptorsrepublic.com/

    I say, yes. Michael Beasley is a talent we can either use or ship in a trade. Mario Chalmers is a backup PG which we need once we ship out Jose Calderon.

    With Bosh gone, Amir re-signed, and our cap-holds released, we have about $2M of salary-cap space which doesn't mean a thing so to say that the cap space released by Bosh walking away is going to come to use is unrealistic.

    If Bosh has already agreed to a deal that apparently is a straight sign what incentive does Miami have for offering to change it to a S&T?

    I see no reason that the Heat would give up anything if Bosh isn't asking them to. It is clear that Bosh has cut all ties with Canada so I really don't understand the reason behind the poll.

    Clarification would be appreciated.

    Yes indeed!

    We need to accumulate as much young talent and trade assets (TPE) as possible in order to give ourselves as many future options and possibilities to successfully rebuild this franchise.

    As it stands, we are approx. $2M from the salary cap which doesn't leave us with any money to sign any of the dozens of quality free agents that are presently available.

    I will be absolutely shocked if BC doesn't agree to a s&t deal for, at the very least, Beasley & a $12+M TPE.

    Bosh is certainly not going to refuse to accept the extra money and year on his contract. The idea is to make it worth Miami's while, too. Yes, I am self promoting here, but instead of typing out my argument again and again, I wrote it on my blog once...

    The idea is that if the Raptors agree to take Beasley back, it gives the Raptors a little leverage and gives the Heat incentive to do a deal.
