    Default Which Bigs to keep?

    As of right now we have 7 bigs on our Roster. They are: Soloman Alabi, Alexis Ajinca, Andrea Bargnani, Amir Johnson, Ed Davis, Joey Dorsey, and Reggie Evans. Who do you think is worth keeping? Forget about whether or not someone is expiring and just evaluate them based on what they are making now.

    Soloman Alabi
    Andrea Bargnani
    Ed Davis
    Joey Dorsey
    Reggie Evans ( at a reasonable contract which is much less than he is making now)

    Agree but Sub Ajinca with Alabi (although I think Alabi's menial contract would mean keep both).

    Amir could fetch us some good talent in a trade.

    Amir and Ed: Definitely worth keeping.
    Andrea: I'm torn. I'm leaning toward him being worth it overall, but he's not a franchise centrepiece.
    Ajinca: Meaningless.
    Solomon Alabi: Keep him on the off-chance he's good. If you have roster space. Frankly Ajinca seems better.
    Dorsey: He seems pretty solid as a backup. I like the guy.
    Reggie: He's good at what he does, but he's overrated (by Raptors fans, anyway). I would keep him just for the amusement value.

    The problem with the raptors is lack of stars, and terrible wing play.

    Everything is for sale - need an upgrade of talent at all positions in order to be a relevant contender type. Amir for a mid-first rounder? Check. Calderon for a lottery pick? Check. Our whole starting lineup for a young superstar type player? Check.

    Amir Johnson, Ed Davis and Reggie (for a veteran's) minimum.

    Assuming Bargnani is not going anywhere, i would keep Ed and sign Reggie for the vet's min. Then fill the bench with Alabi and Dorsey.

    IMO, Davis and Amir pretty much has the same game, so if start Ed and sub in Amir, to me it doesnt make sense. They can keep Reggie for rebounding and guarding big centers like Dwight, Hibbert and Bogut.

    If theyre willing to trade Bargs, ill get a defense C, keep Ed, Amir and Reggie.

    Ok guys, you REALLY think that Reggie will sign for the vets min?????

    The way this guy rebounds, LOTS of teams will be after him, and willing to pay more. I can see Boston, Miami, OKC, etc going after him.

    That's too much for a guy who should be playing 10 - 15 minutes.

    I fully agree with that. If BC is here so is AB for another few years. I am willing to pay Reggie as high as 4 million a year while trading Amir.

    Does anyone think Amir Johnson can fetch us mid first round pick ? Maybe we can use that pick and our own to move up to 1 and 2 draft spot and get our guy

    You will be paying almost 4 million more if you keep Amir next season for the same job. Mark my Word, Davis is going to come back and will have monster game and will own that starting position.

    Ed and Amir. We also should be shopping Bayless and Bargs @ the draft.

    Davis can play 30+ minutes, Amir can play high 20s, and whoever eventually replaces Bargs at Centre can take the bulk of the difference. Ideally we'd have 4 throw back bigs in the mold of Davis/Amir and get our scoring from the wings.

    It depends entirely. If Bargs is still here, id keep Evans.

    Why Bayless? He has a small contract, he's young and talented.

    If Bargs is still here we're screwed either way.

    I think we could shop Amir and then maybe pay Reg a little something extra. I got a hunch he would rather be back in the south near his fam though. He's a vet, gettin older, wants to win, and be close to home. We would have to offer alot to keep him. I'm sure Miami could offer him the same they are paying big z right now and get him (z is retiring).

    Anything less than a mid lottery pick or a young rising SF (like a Jeff Green or Paul George) wouldn't be worth trading Amir, considering Amir himself is finally making real improvements and is arguably our best and most well rounded player at the age of 23. His value likely hasn't recovered yet after the ridicule his contract received in the offseason, so we'd be selling low.
