But you originally said the following:
It's a persistent rumour and it has already been discussed on this site before. Some external links that mention Wallace might not want to play in Toronto:
And I think if you have been eliminated from the playoffs and have had the next year pretty well discussed to death. The scope of what will be discussed will widen
So after all that, we've come to the conclusion that Wallace may, or may not like playing in Toronto. Got it

kidd should have retired after they won the championship
Bruce Arthur is on that show "The Reporters with Dave Hodge".
He writes for the toronto sun i believe. So, he's got some credibility.
Apollo you touched on ignorance and mlse messing shit up. T-Mac left because he was ready for more and toronto didn't give it to him. The rest i agree.
Bruce Arthur writes for the National Post. He's kind of a "jack of all trades" sports writer. He doesn't specialize in basketball.
Offering the pick and Ed Davis would save them around $9M (Ed contract plus pick) and put them about $9M below the cap. They'd get younger, add depth, and have money to get a real C - Chris Kaman perhaps?
If the Raptors end up picking 8th or 9th, I'd certainly make the proposal. Although any trade would have to come with an extension. Having him leave after 1 season would be tough for the Raptors. They can't give away assets at this time.
Memphis has some serious decisions to make.O.J. Mayo, Memphis Grizzlies – $5.6 million – Restricted ($7.4 million Qualifying Offer)
The Memphis Grizzlies have tried to trade O.J. Mayo at least a handful of times over the last two years, not because they don’t like O.J., but because they know they are going to have a problem retaining him this summer.
The Grizzlies have $62.54 million in hard salary commitments for next season, and that’s before the $7.39 million Qualifying Offer to Mayo, the $3.82 million Qualifying Offer to Marreese Speights or the $3.00 million Qualifying Offer to Darrell Arthur.
Mayo’s Qualifier alone puts Memphis into luxury tax territory.
There is no doubting there will be a hefty list of suitors for Mayo. He has really found his groove this season and that’s likely going to price him out of the game in Memphis.
The Grizz could opt to issue the offer and make O.J. a restricted free agent and deal with the tax implications later, but that just seems unlikely.
The Mayo situation will be interesting because Memphis will have to make some tough choices and letting the third overall pick just walk away doesn’t seem like smart business. How does Memphis make it all work?
If we somehow end up with Mayo (the number 3 pick in the '09 draft), that will cosmically make up for dealing our 17th pick (Hibbert), and all will be forgiven
You had to open that can of worms?
Kirilenko MVP video (not great, but current year's highlight:
Edit: Probably should have compared Kirilenko to other Unrestricted FA's; however, just want to get a feel for where everybody would rank him.

I don't think Lin is gonna be consistent.
I like that plan. Although, I'm pretty sure unless the raps signed him to a very lucrative two or three year extension. Which I'm not saying is even bad. That you'd have to go without the extension and hope you can convince him before the end of the season.
I'm a big smith fan. Trying to get him in a raps uniform is something I can get behind. It'd also show that management aint just sittin around lettinf things play out.
Two guys I want to read about them inquiring is J. Smoove and Mayo.
