    Default This ain't happening

    Sounds like this ain't happening. From David Aldridge:

    Much was made this weekend about Toronto having scouts in Houston, where Great Britain's Olympic team is having a training camp in advance of the Games next month -- and where Deng, who is playing for England in the Games, is working out.

    But the Raptors insist they were there to watch Jonas Valanciunas, their first-round pick from 2011 who is expected to come to the NBA this season. He was playing for the Lithuanian national team that scrimmaged England Sunday. Another member of the Lithuanian team is Linas Kleiza, the Raptors' forward, who was also getting a look-see.

    "There is nothing there with Deng," a Raptors source texted Sunday night.

    Believe what you will. It's four days before the Draft.

    Toronto also supposedly has a jones for Waiters, with sources saying that Coach Dwane Casey wants an "alpha male" for his still-young squad.

    yes but you know why they were "fringe" HOF's? because they had a surefire HOF on their team that made everyone around them better.
    For example:

    Horace Grant had Jordan
    Shawn Marion had Steve Nash
    Big Z had LeBron
    I hope that helps.

    All that it tells me is that you didn't think much of the listed players. It indicates to me that you think that the only reason why those names had any success was because they played with surefire hall of famers.

    Anyways, this is the last time I'm gonna speak of this.

    Toronto trade Calderon + Davis + 8th pick + Barbosa TPE for Deng + Noah

    We are not just getting Deng, we are getting Noah too according to a source rumor.

    Then we sign Nash and bring back Vinsanity

    Nash/Bayless/2nd round pick (Scot Machado)
    DeRozan/Vince/Forbes
    Deng/JJ Johnson/Kleiza
    Bargs/Amir/2nd round pick (Quincy Acy)
    Noah/Val/Magloire

    This look like a solid starting lineups and our backups aren't that bad.

    I think Nash will make DeRozan, Deng, Bargs, and Noah better. Personally, if i we can get Noah, i would second this trade with Deng. Noah will start while let Val develops his game in a year or two.
    I don't want Noah! He's too injury prone and to be honest, he's been less than stellar last season. I feel like JV has better potential on our team than Noah! So I'll have to say no thank you!

    You shouldn't always rely on these "sources" especially if they don't ever indicate who the source is.
