    Definitely a steal for the raptors if this goes through. I find it hard to believe Kleiza is tradeable right now with his surgery.

    um how is this a steal for toronto? do the 3 dudes have expiring contracts or something? i like cassipi and think he'd be a terrific rotational dude but garcia is pretty meh and who cares about ridnour.

    tho i guess its pretty much worth it just to get out of calderons contract

    You said it, get rid of Calderon's contract, gaining a backup SG, a SF we need who is a good 3pt shooter, young and promising, and a backup PG.

    I would prefer Thompson to Garcia or Ridnour as well, but we need to have Ridnour in there if we don't get a PG in the draft.

    Source??????????????

    Link?????????????

    I do not believe this possible because Kleiza may never play again with his injury. The only way it makes sense is if the Kings are hoping insurance takes care of his contract and his deal is wiped off the books - much like what happened with Darius Miles in Portland.

    Garcia and Ridnour have just as crappy contracts
