    Calderon's salary at about $10 million for his last year. If the Raps get Nash for $12 million, Jose pretty much has to go - either in the sing and trade that lands Nash, or amnestied.
    We are talking about a situation without Nash. How possible is it to grab Dragic and keep Calderon?

    ... or amnestied.
    Now an interesting question would be, if Calderon was amnestied, how much action would there be in pursuing him? In other words, how much of his contract would the Raps be on the hook for. I would expect Calderon to eventually sign for at least $5 million. Thoughts? Given the numbers being thrown around this season for minor talents? And considering it is only for one year?

    Or would Calderon want to go to a contender for just a couple of million, since he is going to be pulling down the $10 no matter what? Who would want him? Lakers? I don't think he matches their style of play. So who?

    apparently ilyasova just got a HUGE offer from a european team and is considering going back overseas.

    sounds like a agents scam frankly.

    I like him but he doesn't make sense given the draft pick.

    Agent Tolga Tugsavul tells HoopsHype his client Ersan Ilyasova is seriously considering accepting "a big offer" from a European club. According to Tugsavul, the free agent forward has offers on the table from another two Euro teams plus three in the NBA - Toronto, Brooklyn and Milwaukee. Tugsavul says a decision is likely coming next week. Sulia
    Not sure how we could make this offer....anyhow

    this argument is ridiculous..

    "how bout culture change", "playoffs"

    best argument thus far, why not Dragic? Because we've seen this before.. Darren Collison the man when paul went down..to coming off the bench behind George Hill. New jersey traded for Devin Harris, only to watch Jason Kidd win a ring.

    I'll go with Nash thank you.

    Dragic is not the guy to lead the Raptors anywhere. He's not a play maker on the level of Jose Calderon. He padded the box scores on a contract year. Come on guys, stop falling for this stuff...

    Houston needs Lin now...Dragic turned down their offer and Lowry doesn't want to play there
    Looks like Lin is off the market:

    The last 2 years are insane! If the Knicks don't get Nash they are screwed now.

    Did you even watch Dragic? There is no way you can say he's not play maker and that he "padded the box scores". He outplayed Lowry and if you ask majority of the Rockets fans they'll tell you that.

    Nash better fucking sign with us, I really don't even know why he is thinking at this point. Its either going back home to Canada, to help out the only nba team in your country build some rep and guide some young players, or its going to a stupid ass team like the knicks with a selfish player like melo and an injury prone stoudemire. Seriously just sign with us already

    This is just me...I think the Rockets & Morey are insane and Lin hit the lottery. Why wouldnt they give the money to Dragic who wanted to be there and liked playing for McHale. Insanity.

    Lin puts more bums in the seats than Dragic.
