    Does "shooter" necessarily mean 3 point shooter? I think we (equally) need a guy who can just spot up jumpers and those who can create their own shot. I think these 3 go hand in hand. Though I guess there's no stat that shows guys who are good at those other two..
    I think it does.

    Bargnani, DeRozan, and Valanciunas all need space to do their thing.

    I think 3 point shooters are crucial to keep the D honest and create opportunities.

    Yeah, the Raptors need another guy to spread the floor. I would not be shocked if Colangelo went after Granger.

    What would it take, that's the question? West only has a year left on contract and he really didn't fit in Indiana this year. He could be on the move again. That said, there is room for Amir and Ed in Indiana I think... So them plus a lottery protected 1st rounder. The Raptors eat the extra cap and belch in celebration.

    My opinion is that to find a solid mid-range shooter you have to look either Euro or stretch 4. The way young players are playing now is that the points come either in the paint or outside the 3pt line. Being involved in ball, I find it sad to see the way is going. Many players would rather look good and loose than look bad and win, and that carries over to development. Don't get me wrong, I like seeing highlight plays, but to see a kid in a game try some And1 ballhandling move and have people go nuts, only to still have his defender in front of him is frustrating. 15 foot jumpers just don't excite people.

    Love the idea of Granger or Ilyasova (as a consolation prize). However, I would hate to lose ED to get him. I would. But I wouldn't like it.

    FanNation, CNNSI's rumor mill section, has also picked up the story: http://www.fannation.com/truth_and_r...ave-for-canada

    If Nash ever were to sign with Toronto, BC would suddenly have yet another attractive asset to work with to further improve his team. A veteran, pass-first PG on an expiring contract, that could bring back up to $13.3M in salary ($
