    I like the moves BC pulled off today! I think we're set and way to keep that TPE in your back pocket, next season we have our 2 first rounders, a nice TPE, I look forward to next offseason, this season gives us the oppurtunity to develop our younger players and play hard. we may not do too well but thats fine I wouldn't mind a top 3 draft pick next year...

    If Doug say so, it means we can expect tomorrow to see a deal involving Raptors TPE . Doug is just that reliable!

    IMO, if the Raptors can`t get Collison, they should look towards the 2011 draft and use their assets to get Kyrie Irving (Duke Freshman). He would be a great complimentary addition to the Young Gunz movement.

    If finished for now, the 13 man roster is?

    Jack/Barbosa/Banks
    DeRozan/Weems/Belinelli
    Kleiza?/Diaw
    Bargnani/Davis
    Chandler/Johnson/Dorsey?

    If they play the young players a lot (DeRozan, Weems, Davis, Johnson), is this a 30-35 win team with the 8-12th pick in the first round next year?

    Arse that is not what he said...

    I heard the interview live....

    He said he would not use the TPE right away (as in if Smitty was BC) he would wait until the season starts to see what unfolds...

    BC will use it if and when it makes sense...I agree there is no rush but if he gets an offer he likes he will pull the trigger...

    we know our dude is not shy to pull the trigger...

    Arse I must admit (not to be overly critical) but reporting a false statement is something I expect from people commenting on articles not people writing them. I have higher expectations of this site...

    Your Raptors Republic not Khandors joke/waste of time sports blog...

    I was listening to the interview this afternoon as well, and I have to agree with it is what it is... Unless I missed something.

    It's "higher" expectations though...

    Haha...I heard it as being inside knowledge, not opinion (as did other son Twitter).

    But I'll change the title to reflect.

    Enjoy our pizza.

    I would change the title to Smitty thinks the Raps should not use TPE...

    Smitty does not know when BC will use it....BC does not even know when he will use it...

    Just a suggestion for the suggestion box!!

    If we assume that we are all about rebuilding and developing our young talents, then the current roster gives us the ability and the future flexibility to do so.

    I still think the team needs a pass first, traditional PG but I like to have a either a young guy who can develop with the current group of guys or a veteran with a reasonable short contract who can help to make the game easier for them while not jeopardizing our future flexibility.

    Is there such a PG AVAILABLE in the league now ? Can we effort getting him ?

    I don't have the answer for it. If there is no such a person, then I think the best thing is to hold off now and see what the season has in store for us.

    The current team will get somewhere between 15-25 win next season which will give us a draft pick hopefully around 5-7.

    I'm fine with lineup as is going into the season, aside from a young PG. If we can play the season out and come out with a top ten pick, I'd love to send it with the trade exception for the #1 pick. I don't know if that team will want to part with the opportunity to draft Barnes.

    I checked out DraftExpress yesterday and I Believe 3 of their top 6 draftees were Euros... Ugh.

    What about Alabi?... I think he would likely get the 13th spot over Dorsey

    I know we have no true superstars but I remember a Memhpis team coached by Hubbie Brown like 5 to 9 years ago where they had no superstars played 10 guys every night they played hard and won 50 games. I only bring that up because as much as this is superstar league I think this is better "team" now not necessarily from day 1 but I think this team is going to surprise a lot of people...a division title is not 100% out of the equation with an aging Celtic team and questions in NY and NJ still a few years away Toronto and Phily could easily win a division title if the Celts can suffer some likely injury trouble...

    with a rotation of

    Jack
    Barbosa
    Weems
    DD
    AB7
    Chandler
    Amir
    Klieza
    with a splash of some others kids here and there this team will be fast, quick, up tempo,and struggle offensively in the half court but will improve its defence greatly....anywherefrom 27 to 50 wins is a possible because BC might not be done yet!!!
