I'd do that deal in a heartbeat. I like Mozgov. He's got a lot of upside.
Except that Gallo plays hard on the defensive end (decent D in the end), and he scores very efficiently.
Weems, Wright, and Dorsey are all great depth players. If the Raptors can re-sign them to similar non-guaranteed contracts again, it would be a steal. The only problem with Weems is he's playing too many minutes not that he's a waste of a roster spot.
-"You canít run from me. I mean, my heart donít bleed Kool-Aid."
-"ďI ainít no diva! I donít have no blond hair, red hair. Iím Reggie Evans.Ē
This is a good point. If Weems were a guy not in the regular rotation then you would be looking at some very excellent depth deep in the roster.
I don't think denver wants weems back anyways, I would do Mozgov, Gallo , for wright, bayless, miami draft pick, alabi.
Ship him out of town for whatever you can get.
I would gladly trade Miami's 1st-round pick and at least one of Alabi/Weems for Gallinari. Hell, even if he doesn't pan out, he's likely a much more valuable asset than a very late 1st-round pick and either Alabi (project at best) or Weems (expiring contract looking for raise next season), so it would be easy enough for BC to unload him for something equal or better to what the Raps would have to give up to get him!
BTW I highly doubt we'd get anyone better then Weems (at least potentially) if we were to trade him right now.
I think most here undervalue Danilo. He is a really good player, he is 6'10 and freakishly athletic. Long arms, real nice shooting stroke, and he gets to the line a lot. He is a better overall player than Bargnani, and he's better than Kleiza, DeRozan (for now) and any other 3 we have. I'd actually do a trade like Bargnani, Weems + Miami's Pick for Gallinari, Mozgov and Randolph.

I concur with the above.
I've read that DEN stands to get a $17.15M TPE from the trade as currently is. That is from Larry Coon - salary cap 'guru'.
I feel bad for Kleiza. He had a great summer and was off to a great start wiht the Raptors. I'm not feeling bad as a Raptor fan but for him in general. Nothing worse than an injurykeeping someone from reaching full potential. I'd hate to be kicking back after my playing days thinking, "What if my knee wasn't sh!t?" Hopefully he comes back like Amar'e did from the surgery.
