    well, its a good enough draft we might be able to strike gold (silver? gold coloured rock?) with one of the second rounders.

    i'm pleased with it.

    also this should help our lotto chances

    for a 2nd round pick.

    So Raps get something for an expiring contract, and if Colangelo wants to take a run at LB as a FA in the summer, can still do so. Nice small move.

    Don't you feel Toronto got too less..? I mean a lot of teams were calling Barbosa and we traded him only for a second rounder?

    As of today, that pick would be the 52nd pick in the draft... I'm a little surprised that the Raps couldn't even get a better 2nd round pick, without taking salary back. Hopefully Indiana drops to get the pick at least around 45th.

    I like it, although it reeks of a salary dump. My guess is that he'll be back this summer on a smaller contract. Could end up being a nice move by Colangelo if we can get him back. Pacers probably want to make a bit of a run in the playoffs and don't mind renting him for the cost of a second rounder. I don't know how the second round works, but if Indiana does better, does that pick get better as well? Meaning 1st round: worst team picks first and best team picks last (in theory), 2nd round: best team picks first and worst team picks last? Kinda like a zig-zag.

    Nope. 2nd round is based on standings - team with worst record picks 1st (sort of like the first round, but without the lottery for top 3 picks).

    Oh well. I still don't hate this. There must have been some backroom conversations with Bird, BC, and LB. I just can't imagine that BC got fleeced again...not with a player that he "covets".

    Default 2nd rounder?

    The Raptors have traded Leandro Barbosa to the Pacers, according to a source.

    Toronto will receive a second round pick in return, according to a source that spoke with David Aldridge.

    Because the Pacers are under the salary cap, they are able to absorb the salary of Barbosa.

    I don't get it. I mean if they're not planning on keeping him it's better to get something rather than nothing but honestly I expected more.

    Can't say I'm pleased with this unless BC already has some deal with 2 second rounders for a low first.. but i suppose a second rounder is better than a walk
    Whoever told you skies the limit is looking dumb because I'm 22 and i'm moonwalking on the sun.

    Yeah, right now that have picks #34 and #52 so maybe they use those along with cash to buy another 1st rounder?

    Or perhaps something like 2 2nd round picks for a player like Dragic?? Similar to how they acquired Delfino from Detroit a few years ago.

    I agree completely that even a mid-late 2nd round pick is better than getting nothing in return for Barbosa... plus, he could still return next season at a much lower veteran contract, who knows.

    2 2nd round picks (one very high) plus $3M might be enough to get a pick in the mid-20 range.

    Some teams, especially tax paying teams, may not want the guaranteed contract that goes along with a first round draft pick come draft night with free agency starting 3 days later.
