    Nash probably
    Sorry, I needed a second "else" in that sentence:

    But like someone else said, who ELSE is going to dribble the ball with a possible Nash, DD, Ersan, Bargs, JV/Amir/Gray lineup?

    I'm going 'other'

    Get Jared Dudley included in a sign and trade for Nash.

    (Relatively) cheap contract, good d, nearly 50% fg and 40% 3pt.

    Fact, though he comes at a way better price so it makes it possible to trade Demar for somebody that actually can dribble
    Whoever told you skies the limit is looking dumb because I'm 22 and i'm moonwalking on the sun.

    Agreed. Things aren't looking good for DeMar.

    Dudley and Nash can continue to have their light saber duels in Toronto together

    I'm down with that trade

    I would choose Ilyasova. A shooter and a good rebounder, and those are really good for the sf position. We can keep JJ as the back up for his defence. A starting line-up of nash/dero/ilyasova/bargs/JV is gonna be a really competetive team especially with casey's defence. Also, with nash Toronto will have something the NEVER had, and that's a leader in and out of the court. Bayless who has loads of potential will also greatly benefit with nash on the team, look what it did with dragic. Dang! I just kinda went of topic, but! Point is i would choose Ilyasova.

    I'm not a huge fan of any of the guys on the list, but I think I would lean toward Iguodala.

    I like his ability to contribute on both ends of the court and adapt his play to whatever the team needs - ie: his stats were down this past season, but mostly because he was asked to focus on becoming their perimeter defensive stopper, while deferring to Holiday/Evans on the offensive end. He's a solid veteran who would add great leadership to the young Raptors team, especially if he's added along with Nash. His ability to play SF/SG provides even more lineup flexibilty for DC. He should still have at least 3-5 solid years left in him, given that he only turns 29 halfway through next season. The one concern I have with trading for him, is that he's only under contract for 2 seasons, the second being a player option (which I assume he'd probably use).

    The next big question is: what would it take to get him from Philadelphia? I'd be happy trading Amir/Davis & JJ & 2013 1st round pick (top-8 protected).

    and to go along with what matt was alluding to, he can dribble/facilitate to ease the burden for Nash

    Isn't fields a SG? Can Fields play the 3? He's a good pick up if NY fails to match. But with Ross, DeMar and now Fields - that's not a lot of size to man the 3, IMO. Maybe we can swing DeMar for Iggy or Deng now.

    Not sure, but he's listed on ESPN as being 6'7". Most SF are in the 6'7" - 6'9" range.

    The biggest thing here is not reaching on someone we aren't crazy about. I'm not a huge Ilyasova fan because I see him as more of a 4 and 10m/year isn't cheap. The thought of Kirilenko for 10m is borderline outrageous also, he isn't worth 2/3 of that at this point. Deng and Chandler would both me great fits at reasonable prices but definitely not worth overpaying for them. Batum unfortunately would be the best choice but I've lost all hope for that. Unless we find a great deal, I wouldn't mind sitting on what we have for another season (Ross and Demar splitting time with Linas and JJ) and drafting a replacement.

    Picking up Fields is nothing more than a move to get Nash away from the Knicks imo. I wouldn't be for this deal at all if Nash coming wasn't a good possibility. Unless we get rid of Demar for a 3...that would be clutch.
