    I'd love to see the Raptors flip Amir or Davis, along with both 2nd round picks, for a late lottery pick to grab Marshall as the PG-of-the-future. He certainly fits the preferred floor general, pass first description we seem to want in our PG-otf. He would have a year (at least) to learn the role while backing up Calderon (or a slightly older, better, Canadian version of our man Caldy).

    A harsh reality.... but true nonetheless. This is a .340 winning team and only won 22 games last year. Jack has said numerous times on broadcasts there will be signiificant changes next year. Not saying he is god-like in his knowledge but surely he hears more on the inside than any of us would.



    A points to add:

    JV is good in the pick and roll, as is Amir. Anyone working to JV's strengths should be able to do the same for Amir. The odd man out is Davis in my opinion.
    This team as currently constructed is closer to a 500 team then this season would show.

    Coulda, woulda, shoulda..... bah. Every team has endured the same circumstances and schedule. Every team endures injuries (except maybe Phoenix). The Raptors are what they are right now.

    Key words were "right now". I am very optimistic about next year assuming this off season BC takes advantage of the flexibility he has to upgrade the roster via draft, trade, and free agency.

    Yeh ... Kendall Marshall is a bomb distributor ... in terms of balance, he would need more outside shooting from the SG and SF than DD and JJ ... But i'm sure that can be arranged ... cough cough ... Brad Beal ... cough cough ...

    It is probably unrealistic (and thus not really in keeping with the title of the thread), but IF Jrue Holiday was available, I'd be all over him.

    It seems to me that Doug Collins has lost the 76ers. Give Holiday the rock in the same manner a traditional PG would have it (i.e. not equally sharing with Evan Turner and AI) and give him a little more structure and team play and he is back on the trajectory people had for his career last season.

    Agreed.

    Also, I'm surprised Collins has had the team as long as he has.

    If you had the choice between Jennings and Holiday, who would you choose?

    The sexy pick is Jennings, but I might actually lean towards Holiday.

    Holliday by a mile. He's everything I look for in a PG.

    What are the odds of a deal going through between 2 division rivals?

    When you're not trading superstars I think it's fine

    I doubt the heads in Philly are saying "we should move Holliday but not to a division rival!"

    Holiday due to his size and defense.

    As much as I love Brandon Jennings, it's clear cut day off in the holiday.

    Holiday is nice but (I gotta beat the drum again!) ...Dragic is probably the right choice. He is a f/a and will not cost assets which can be used for other acquisitions or movement up in the draft/acquisition of another pick. Lowry will be back as a starter so he is unlikely to stay in Houston. Guarantee him the starting position (unless he loses it), the plan going forward and with the euro flavour of the team he may sign with us. Not that Holiday or Bledsoe are otherwise he is a low maintenance player who also has more experience but still young. Just a solid all around player who I believe makes others better. I just hope he is on BC's radar. Portland I believe is also interested.

    I know most of you are expecting me to say Jeremy Lin, but I'll be realistic here and say that our future PG probably isn't in the league yet.
