    I guess lottery balls giving us the #1 pick is within the realm of reality ... welcome AD!

    Sorry Bargs ... that means you're getting flipped for a SG who can score ... Tyreke Evans
    Salaries don't need to match with cap room. Cousins and Bargs is nice for them. Can start Thornton @ SG.

    2012-13 Toronto Raptors:

    Valanciunas (rim protection, rebounding ... developing inside game and mid-range)
    Anthony Davis (more rim protection & defence ... developing jumper and transition monster)
    James Johnson (MORE rim protection, crazy hustle and defence, with nice point-forward abilities)
    Tyreke Evans (scoring, penetration, ball handling, & tough rebounding at SG)
    Jose (tempo & distribution control, veteran leadership)

    Gray - Amir - Kleiza - Demar - Bayless

    Bring back Bayless and Gray on reasonable deals.
    Use Demar as 6th man - his only real weapon is scoring anyhow.

    This wouldn't even touch our cap space, and would remove all of Bargs $$$ too ... keep it to bring back Reke and go after a star PG in 2013, after showing our championship potential.

    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?
    No need to get Angry there WJF! haha
    I was at work and didn't really have time to contribute a proper response. Just wanted to let it be known where I stood on Dragic.

    In terms of a Potential 10 man Roster?

    Jose/Marshall (with new pick obtained from trading Ed and pieces)
    Demar/Bayless
    Barnes or Jones or MKG (with top Pick)/Jam Johnson
    Andrea/Amir
    JV/Sacre (with second rounder obtained with pieces or cash)

    I think my list actually looks quite similar to yours! Fancy that.

    Seems like every scenario has TO drafting MKG or Davis. I guess this is a 'what if' thread. Those two are most likely going 1-2 or at worst 1-3. I think we as fans need to start looking at the guys projected to go 5-9. Oh, and not Barnes.

    It is a "dream but realistic" thread. We do have a chance to get MKG and Davis, so these are realistic, but they are unlikely, hence the dream portion.
    If you want to see people's opinion on who to draft I suggest the Draft thread.


    Anyway, after Rethinking I came up with a new team, this one is definitly more on the dream side then realistic side.

    Nash (Sign in FA)
    Evans (Trade DD and Ed)
    Smith (Trade Bargs)
    A. Davis (Draft with #1)
    Val
    Bench:
    Jose
    Bayless
    JJ
    Amir
    Gray

    Any logical and doable rotation this team can achieve by next season isn't worth dreaming about.

    But Nash would be cool, I guess.

    I'd rip it apart.

    Here's the future as I see is:
    C - Jonas
    PF - Drummond
    SF - Rudy Gay *
    SG - Eric Gordon*
    PG - Jose & whoever we draft in the future

    Note:*
    - Eric Gordon will be had by offering him a max contract. NO is hesitant on a max contract with Gordon. If NO will match then we can offer them DD & ED or Bayless or all three for Gordon and ease them of the financial burden of a max contract and give them building blocks.
    - We offer up Bargs & possibly Bayless for Rudy Gay. Mem is going to have to resign Mayo & Allen and they're already bordering the luxury tax zone. They get scorers and cut salary as they have shown that they can go deep w/o Gay.

    Why?
    Jonas is too skinny to bang with the bigger boys so we'd have a big body in Drummond to back him up. Once Drummond figures it out 'he will' be a monster. We'd have our own version of a M.Gasol/Randolph but with higher potential.
    Get two big time scorers who can defend in Gay & Gordon. We have the cap space with a couple of rooks so might as well get two max contracts while we can.
    Jose might be a defensive liability but the others are good enough defensively to help out. Jose has the skills to run this team for a long time (see the lesser skilled PG Derek Fisher). Also when his contract is up, we'll prob be able to sign him for much cheaper than now and also draft & groom a successor.

    To start I love what Aaron Gray has brought to us and I think Gray is a poor mans Chris Kaman, so this offseason we bring Super Aaron Gray aka Chris Kaman to start at about 8mill a year
    next we bring back Sonny Weems, if healthy, to backup his boy Demar
    Now the big one! We bring back Kid Canada Mr Steve Nash, if we show him a good team I see no reason he wouldnt want to come back and we give him 10mill a year or even 15mill because we love him that much
    AND we draft best SF available (Harrison Barnes, Royce White, Perry Jones III, MKG)

    PG: Steve Nash - Jose Calderon

    SG: Demar Derozan - Sonny Weems

    SF: Harrison Barnes - Linas Kleiza

    PF: Andrea Bargnani - Amir Johnson/ Ed Davis

    C: Chris Kaman - Jonas Valanciunas

    thats next years lineup and if it dont work Calderon's contract is up after that year so thats 10 mill we can spend on either resigning Demar(if he becomes all star next year) or try and sign a SG
    but i think that kind of offensive team with Casey's defensive strategy could be very good

    How about this:

    Toronto: Jrue Holiday, Rudy Gay, Elton Brand
    Utah: Jose Calderon (TPE from Okur), Andre Iguoudala
    Philadelphia: Devin Harris, Paul Millsap, Ed Davis, 2012 lottery pick from Utah
    Memphis: DeMar DeRozan, Amir Johnson, James Johnson, future lottery protected 1st round pick from Raptors

    Raptors draft Brad Beal.

    Give Bayless his QO or use MLE to get a backup PG.

    Trade Forbes, TPE, and 2 second rounders to Portland for Matthews (lol - not gonna happen).

    Bring back Uzoh and Anderson.

    Raptors lineup:

    PG: Holiday, Bayless/MLE back up PG, Uzoh
    SG: Beal, Matthews
    SF: Gay, Kleiza, Anderson
    PF: Bargnani, Brand, veteran banger
    C: Valanciunas, Gray, Alabi



    Nice work BryCo and Steffi - enjoy the rest of your summer!

    Haha, nice work Matt. Now there's a lineup I can stand behind, and is young (yet experienced) enough to make some noise in the east. I can even live with Bargnani's deficiencies considering the strong defensive players he's surrounded with.

    I agree it should be. I can barely type with all the baby oil on my keyboard.

    PG - Nash/Calderon/Uzoh
    SG - Derozan/Forbes/Anderson
    SF - MKG/J. Johnson/Kleiza
    PF - Bargnani/A. Johnson/davis
    C - Valanciunas/Gray/Magloire

    Sign Nash, draft Gilchrist. Easy dream. All we have to do is hope for the lottery spot, and convince Kid Canada to come to T.Dot.
