    Who starts Barnes or Kleiza?
    I think it will be very competitive in camp.

    Barnes is the better defender but Kleiza is a better shooter and scorer.

    lets get that collison & okafor for tpe+banks+evans+belineli THEN calderon for hibbert and most likely foster

    Collison/Jack/Dee Brown ??
    Demar/Weems/Barbosa
    Barnes/Kleiza
    Bargnani/Davis/Jones/Dorsey
    Okafor/Hibbert/Amir/Alabi/Foster

    probably acouple buyouts or waives will happen at the big spots probably jones and foster. i think dorsey will stay but no playin time unless injuries occur

    that wud b nice

    Default TRADE: Barnes To Raptors (S&T)

    I was wondering where BC got the money to sign Barnes given the Raptors cap situation after signing Kleiza.

    Here is the answer
    STEIN_LINE_HQ

    ESPN.com sources: Raps' signing of Barnes to be finalized TUES as sign-and-trade w/ORL, since bulk of TOR midlevel exception went to Kleiza

    One thing is BC sure makes summertime fun. Its almost as exciting as the season lol.
    BC certainly wants to get some defenders added to the roster. Maybe they make this a sign and trade or make a trade with orlando calderon for Gortat.

    On a sign and trade it allows BC to use some of the TPE.

    Orlando signs Barnes and trades him to the Raptors for the TPE.

    Sounds like we overpayed another player albeit slightly to have him.

    At least Barnes can egg on Bargnani during practice and prehaps make him more emotional since those two don't like each other.

    I like it too.

    So far

    Bosh for

    Barnes
    2 Draft Picks
    $10 Million of still unused TPE

    The Bosh move is looking better.

    I wonder how many players will be involved? looks like Orlando is Toronto best friend in the NBA, and Charlotte is the asshole.

    Say hello to the Raptors new starting SF. Sure, it seems like a lot of money for him per year but we're talking a two year term. This is excellent. Now they need to find a back up center and maybe an upgrade at PG.

    Not sure how this can be a sign and trade. Because he signed a 1 year contract with Orlando, they didn't have his Bird Rights, and I'm pretty sure they used up most of their MLE. On the other hand, it has to be a sign and trade since Toronto doesn't have anything left.

    It looks like its happening somehow, though. I think it's a fine pickup. Not great, but fine. I like his defense and grit, but he's not a young guy, so doesn't really do anything towards the rebuilding effort.

    They signed him as a free agent and traded him for some of the Raptors TPE. No problem
