    Default Your 2012/13 Dream (Yet Also Logical and Doable) 10 Man Rotation

    Goran Dragic (FA)
    Michael Kidd Gilchrist (get lucky in the draft, or trade up)
    Wilson Chandler (recent article suggested they signed him as a trade chip 7.5 is a LOT to pay for a bench player)
    Andrea Bargnani
    Jonas Valanciunas
    Jerryd Bayless (qualifying offer)
    Amir Johnson
    Aaron Gray
    Linas Kleiza
    Reggie Evans (FA)

    Prediction Based On Talent 42wins 40 losses
    good for 7th or 8th in the east.

    Not sure if I like the idea of MKG playing shooting guard. Having a SG who can't create his own shot wouldn't be much of an improvement from DeRozan (at least on the offensive end). I think Beal would be a better fit with this particular lineup.

    Here is my 10

    PG Jose/Marshall
    SG Demar/Bayless
    SF James Johnson/MKG
    PF Andrea/Ed
    C Jonas/Gray

    Amir or/and Linas is used with a second round pick to trade for Kendall Marshall. We would be a little young, but Jose, Gray, and Andrea bring enough experience to keep it together. Bayless and DeMar have been around long enough to not be totally new to the NBA either.

    I don't mind a SG being mainly defense oriented with the PF being so offense oriented. The idea is the offensive players help spread the floor. If we have someone like Amir or Reggie Evans as a starting PF I would opt for a Ray Allen/ Eric Gordon type SG.

    Dragic is in no way involved in my Dream Scenario.

    Pretty decent 10 man rotation. Draft MKG and Marshall would be a excellent pass first PG we will need for the future. Jose would be an amazing mentor for the first few years before we let marshall start. If we cant get Marshall at the right price, we should look at drafting a teague or wroten.

    Well who is?

    Fuck... people put a little effort in if you are going to rip on someone. Realistically Dragic could be had, maybe you don't like the fit, but what do you see as a potential 10 man rotation?

    I like Marshall at the Point...what's his injury prognosis?

    That injury hurt his draft stock at all?

    José/Dragic or Marshall/Third String PG
    DD/Forbes or Weems
    Batum or MKG/Kleiza
    AB/Amir
    JV/Gray/Alabi

    Try to draft MKG, if you don't get too much luck in the lottery, use de first round along with Ed Davis and something else to Sign and Trade for Nico Batum. If you have enough money, sign Dragic. In case you can't spend so much, draft Kendall Marshall trading James Johnson and a future first round for a mid First.

    Plus, draft Tornike Shengelia with one of the second round picks and let him a couple of years in Europe

    In this case yeah he was part of a trade. I like Nash (obviously) seeing stuff come up about his back again though. I never thought to keep Forbes. But I do like what he has brought as of late

    just read up on Tornike. Interesting prospect. One of those tweener forwards that are becoming quite common in the NBA.

    Bro u need to wake up from ur wet dream -__- Id find it difficult to let go of Bargs. I`d be happy with either MKG or Robinson. They both really impressed me in the tourney.

    This is hard to do, as we don't know the real trade value of any current Raptor.

    My Dream Scenario
    1) let Magloire, Alabi, Bayless and Weems walk (or possibly use Bayless and/or Weems in S&T to acquire additional draft picks to sweeten trades in #4 and #5)
    2) re-sign Gray
    3) get lucky in the lottery --> draft MKG
    4) trade DeRozan & Toronto's 2nd round pick & a future 1st round pick for a lottery pick --> draft Beal
    5) trade Davis & Indi's 2nd round pick for a mid-1st round pick --> draft Marshall
    6) use cap space to sign OJ Mayo

    10-Man Rotation
    C: Valanciunas, Gray
    PF: Bargnani, Amir
    SF: MKG, JJ
    SG: Mayo, Beal
    PG: Calderon, Marshall

    Bench
    - Kleiza (3rd PF/SF)
    - Forbes (3rd SG/PG)



    * An alternative to this would be to include Calderon in the DeRozan trade (maybe to Portland for NJ's draft pick) to get Beal, with Nash then being signed to replace Calderon. Nash may provide more of a veteran presence than Calderon, which would be critical when integrating so many fantastic young players... plus the obvious Captain Canada draw from a marketing perspective.

    PG: Steve Nash - Jose Calderon

    SG: Bradley Beal - Demar Derozan

    SF: James Johnson - Linus Kleiza

    PF: Andrea Bargnani - Amir Johnson

    C: Jonas Valanciunas - Aaron Gray

    How it happens:
    -Free Agent money gets spent on Nash
    -Beal is available when we're drafting
    -Gray re-signs
    - ... done ... simple dream, crazy team.

    Still leaves us with an Ed Davis trade chip, S&T with Bayless and Sonny if desired, and our 2nd rounders.
    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

    Jose/Marshall
    Beal/DD/Bayless as a combo guard?
    Batum/JJ
    Barg/Amir
    Jonas/Gray

    I feel like Beal has a really high ceiling, and putting him alongside batum with Derozan off the bench as a 6th man would be ideal for my dream scenario. But this is only one of my many scenarios..

    I can't see DeRozan coming off the bench and being happy. Maybe if he started at eh 2 and slid to the 3 spot at time to make extra minutes for Beal.
