    Default Should we really trade jose?



    I personally like jose and think he will be a great mentor for a new PG we might draft.

    I'm not sure what that video proves. He's a good international point guard but he is just average in the NBA and also happens to be payed like a star. Does he even mentor Bayless at all?

    Yes. Jose's a solid veteran but his best skill (court vision) is not one that he can teach to a younger PG. That is simply a "have it or not" type of skill. If they can find value for Jose and not take back bad long-term contracts in the process, I'd absolutely deal him.

    Depends on what happens in the draft. If we get Irving, for sure we move Jose. I'm sure teams like the Lakers and Heat would love to have him. I would hope we'd be able to get a SF or defensive centre for him. It would be nice to keep him around to mentor Irving should we get him but not at his salary.

    he's actually the perfect pg for a triangle offense team. it's almost retarded how much sense him to the twolves makes.

    I'm not against trading Calderon if it makes the team better, but I see no reason to trade him just to trade him. He's a good solid veteran that works hard, doesn't complain and makes his teammates better.

    This pretty much sums it up.

    If they draft a PG in the lotto and can sign a good free agent PG then I say go for it.

    or trade for Raymond Felton?

    Yeah, that would also be a good scenario but I hold the stance that the Raptors will still need another PG to help carry the weight because Bayless isn't ready yet.

    Who would you prefer: Bayless or a healthy Flynn?

    I would go with the undersized Flynn, more dynamic and a purer point guard.....as long as he is off the bench.

    Yes, it was absolutely in the context of a back up.

    I'm not for trading Jose by the way for the sake of trading the guy. We'd need to get something of worth in return. It's not like he's a distraction, he's a steady hand, a pure PG capable of running an offense, he's good in the locker room, a team-first guy, and he could be a very good mentor for all teammates.

    Ideally I would like to see Felton brought in and Jose traded to MIN that returns Flynn as the back up. Just my continuing dreams.

    I have nothing against Jose other than his injury history and contract.
