    Peja didn't do anything to hurt his stock either. 3mins 7 points at the end of the first half.

    I wouldn't want to trade Reggie. You need a guy like that on your team at all times. He rebounds well, is tough-doesn't take shit from anybody, just a solid guy. He's the type of teammate the Raps need on the court and in the locker room.

    BC has got to resign dude-at a reasonable price of course. We don't need another Amir 3000 debacle come contract time.

    Reggie is an absolute pleasure to watch. I enjoy watching good basketball, hence why the hell would you want to trade him? These guys are rolling and playing awesome, I don't understand why you would want to trade the centerpiece of a winning team? To hear a thread like this is baffling, and again probably from somebody who cares about the paper dynamics of basketball rather then the actual basketball game itself.

    I'd like Reggie to stay with this team regardless. Back when we traded Jason Kapono for Reggie, I kinda knew we'd get the better end of the trade. He addresses toughness, take no slack from anyone type of attitude and I'd even consider him the 'glue guy' for this team. BUT if we can get a good deal out there, then we should go ahead and pull that trigger. He just seems like a perfect fit for Bargnani's lack of rebounding... Heck he's rebounding for the both of them.

    he is not the future of this team, bc knows that, he's playing for a contract right now. due to the fact we still have Joey Dorsey, similar player, more size, younger and of course cheaper. i'd rather keep dorsey and trade evans.

    IMO, Reggie is the leader of this team. His heart and energy is infectious to both his teammates and the fans. His name is chanted throughout the ACC after every board he grabs showing that the fans appriciate everything that he is doing.

    One thing I will say is that I follow him on twitter and by his tweets, I think he genuinely loves being here in Toronto.

    There is no team that needs Reggie more than the Raptors, so why trade him?

    Though I am a huge fan of Dorsey, you can't discount the intangibles and leadership that Evans has undeniably shown this season. Having traded Jack, another vocal 'leader' on the team, Evans becomes the lone Vet who can settle the Young Gunz down. Dude can't talk very well, but whatever he says, they seem to listen.

    Because his value is extremely high right know and we'll get some decent for him.

    I like Evans and want him so stay but he simply isn't the future. He's 30 years old, the Raptors are tying to get younger and rebuild.

    I would rather keep an aging Reggie who is a defined rebounder, rather then have a crapshoot of young talent who don't gel with the team. Besides, having him around will make Bargs a better rebounder by osmosis.

    I don't know about what the future might hold, I'll leave that to Colangelo. But in the present I enjoy watching Reggie play. How can you not love this guy? Hustle, effort ... you know that this guy leaves everything on the floor. What Buddha says may be true statwise; that is, that we are significantly worse off when Reggie is on the floor, especially when compared to Amir; but from a pure entertainment standpoint, I love to see this guy play.

    Comrades:

    One thing I learned from my streetball days back at the Kremlin was that Reg's type of player hangs on for a long time. Such a player, so long as they keep lifting and keeps the weight down will be effective for a long time (4-5+ more years). The reason is they don't depend on speed and athleticism, but sheer hustle and effort. They can slow down, loose some vertical, and it really doesn't impact them like other players. By all means resign him as he is the team's designated badass.

    Default Hmmm

    Jeff Green anybody?

    If the choice was based solely on the fact we would be looking to build for the future of course ...

    Also, resigning him might be the difficult part too

    Any package we can offer to get him? Would he even fit well?

    I heard earlier in the summer that OKC did not extend him ... I might be wrong ...

    He is young and comes from a winning culture ... almost made the USA squad this summer ...

    If OKC thinks they can make a deep run in the playoffs and needs a rebounder (Evans) or a deadly shooter (Peja) to space the floor then we may have some pieces ...

    I really don't think we should trade him. You can see that the rest of the guys love him just from the way they interact with him during games. After tonight's game you saw how many of the guys came over to him to give him due.
    Even beyond that, think about how far he's come since the start of the season. He's actively involved on both sides of the court. Reggie's playing great D as usual, but he's now an active part of the offense. He's more comfortable going up for shots and it shows. He's being used in the pick and roll and he's taking what come to him beyond that.

    We need to embrace JYD 2.0.

    I don't think we shouldn't consider trading him at the deadline though, especially if we can get something back that fits with the long-term strategy - young talent and picks. This season is about development and positioning ourselves for the future. I agree that his stock is pretty high right now. The dude's a beast.

    More time passes, more I want to keep Reggie for the season. And maybe even more (if he takes minimum). But with Amir Johnson, Ed Davis, Linas Kleiza and Joey Dorsey all fighting for the same spot it seems really difficult to keep all of them. Dorsey is younger, and doesn't require minutes anyways (for now) so no point releasing him now. Kleiza has been playing quite badly but he is a better all round player and has a long term contract, Amir just signed a huge contract and Ed is our promising rookie. The odd one out is Reggie. I just don't know how they will share minutes.
