    Most entertaining thread i've read in awhile. I was kinda agianst the Landry Fields move at first, but now i think it's all good. In conclusion:
    - good move, hopefully they dont match, then we get nash
    - Nash, then, will make all-stars or borderline all-stars to our players.
    - if we keep bayless, under Nash, COULD be pg of the future.
    - and lastly, knicks suck.
    -oh, and last lastly, thanks guys for this awsome fun-filled thread, you guys my boring day kinda entertaining. Peace.

    Even if we lose Nash to Dallas, with Houston signing Lin to an offer sheet, Dragic is the odd man out.. I'd settle for him in a heartbeat. (fingers crossed)

    So we had John Salmons sign an S&T with the Raps, only to go back on his word because God told him to, or some gibberish like that. And now we have Landry Fields, who is a devout born-again Christian as well. If HE goes back on his word too, I think we have the basis for THE BEST ANTI-RAPTORS CONSPIRACY OF ALL TIME: God himself doesn't want us to win!!!!!

    I legit have no problem if we get Dragic and not Nash, or even just roll with Calderon still, but we really need to sign Nash at this point or all of this maneuvering will be a waste

    Why is paying $20 million over 3 years a good move for the Raps for essentially a bench player?
    I agree.

    Rap fans are so starved for change even lateral movement seems like Rib-eye Steak

    I dunno that it's been a waste, it got the ball moving, got the raps in the news as serious FA players and we'd likely still end up with one of Lin/Dragon/Nash/jose. The only name that makes me nervous is Lin. I really don't think he has proven a damn thing. Like Jalen said on his podcast, I can't give him more millions than games played.

    You speak of us like you are not one of us... :P

    I guess you haven't read the entire thread.
    Matt has a great breakdown of the Costs included within that $20M. Its all VERY reasonable.

    Im sure Nash sees the Raptors as a better option, we are more functional then NYK in my opinion, but is Lin really that unattractive?
    Lin is a D league player who got on a good run - turnover machine. Someone will overpay for him and I hope it is not Raps.

    sometimes I wish I weren't - lol

    Other teams are getting juiced about Howard, Joe Johnson, DWILL we have this huge thread over the possibility of an overachieving 2nd round draft pick, who has already realized his upside.... its just sad.

    Now this is a kick in the nuts:
    Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine

    Housekeeping note: Rockets swingman Courtney Lee is now an unrestricted free agent after Rockets withdraw his qualifying offer
    I would much rather Lee than Fields. However, there is no question Lee is strictly a SG in my opinion and the Raptors have a couple of them already.

    Couldn't agree more, half the members on this forum could have posted the numbers Lin was posting (minus most of the turnovers) during his "Linsanity" run the way they were feeding him the ball.

    I like that fields is a do-it-all kinda guy but I haven't paid much attention to Lee since that Orlando run to the finals. what is it about this cat that keeps some people drooling over him?

    Just wondering. Why block Dallas? Dallas is in the Western conference. Shouldn't we be helping them to make it easier for ourselves in the Eastern Conference?

    But what you are failing to grasp, as I've pointed out, is that this whole thread is about FAR MORE than just getting Landry Fields on the Toronto Raptors.

    It is the sneaky maneuvering and shrewd business tactics, by our very own Bryan Colangelo, that have the Internets aflutter with activity.

    It is the possible implications of the move. Not just the move itself.


    And signing a player, while not actually giving up a player, is not a Lateral move. Its an obvious talent addition.
