    No quotes from people in charge but Wolstat and a couple others saying Raps will now go for Dragic or Lowry
    Shouldn't we just stick with what we have? We might not have the elite players like most american teams but with a full training camp and Casey in charge we should be better. And if the guys on the team got any pride, they would work their butts off to prove everyone wrong about them.

    BC trying to save face - and, if it happens, make Lowry feel that he wasn't 2nd choice. I really wonder what we can give up that Houston would value.
    If Houston is in total salary dump mode, Toronto could acquire Lowry with the TPE, while flipping a future 1st round pick to Houston. After some of the deals that have gone down already, who knows what their motivations and/or the asking price would be!

    Even if he says that his prime reason was to be with his chilren? As things stand it seems he is taking less.
    Then he should have said in the beginning that it's not about the money, it's about the situation and doing what's best for the family. Not "Money is a sing of respect when it comes to his decision and that it does matter!" I know those weren't his exact words but you get my point. And I totally agree that family does come first. I should!

    Stranger things have happened but I really doubt that Houston would do that. They have a good player at an attractive salary - that's a very nice asset. Maybe there are 3 way trade combinations that work. The time to do this deal was really at the 2012 draft.

    If i were Calderon, i'd silently ask for a trade. I'd say, enough is enough. Tried to trade me twice, and now possibly amnesty me and i'm still here. He'd definitely get a lot of takers.
    Isn't that what Lamar did when LA wanted to trade him last year? I wouldn't blame him. He gave Toronto his heart and they tore it out, chewed it up and spat it out so the world could see.

    I think the pressing issue for Houston is for them to finding a starting PG first. Lowry may be available for the TPE, but I think we'll have to wait until July 11 for that deal to go down.

    If NY gets Nash, and Houston gets Lin, I think Lowry will be ours.

    if lamar asked to be traded then why was he so upset at leaving? why was bryant shocked he was traded? i think Kupcheck did that on his own, correct me if im wrong

    Alright, so this Nash thing is getting dicey, what does everyone think BC has set for a plan b? I'd assume something for lowry, but who knows.

    Dragic?
    Roll with Calderon? - most likely imo

    Interesting tidbit, george hill resigned with the pacers for 40 mil over 5 years. that's starter money. maybe Collison is on the block? Personally, id much rather have nash or lowry, obviously, but Collison is a nice player and was one of the most productive pacers in the playoffs. Just a thought.

    Ideas?
    Anything but "Roll with Calderon"
    "I may be wrong ... but I doubt it"

    He skipped practice because he was upset that they wanted to trade him. Read it for yourself. So they traded him.

    If history holds true, Nash will sign with N.Y. Look at D. Williams. He could have went to Dallas, his home town to play. He chose to stay where the money and fame is. He can own the Nets. In Dallas he would be the second guy. There are others who have done the same thing. SO I guess I should be upset with Nash. And as for BC. Good for him for trying to make a name for himself and the Raps. Basketball in Canada is being discussed again. )

    it still says nothing in there tht Lamar asked to be traded...that article was written before he even got traded to the mavs & after the N.O 3way deal for paul fell apart. just says how he stayed away from practice because of the energy he was feeling blah blah blah.. i think he would have gotten over it once kobe talked to him..

    D.Will was worried that "1 injury to Dirk would leave him on an island by himself" thats why he didnt choose Dallas.. he was also feeling the new additions made in Brooklyn. wasnt about being second behind dirk or the money at all

    Just checked in with Trump, and he says Nash ain't no Canadian. Says Nash for PM job is out of the question too.

    This. But I think Davis and a future 1st - lotto protected through the next 5 years would probably get it done.

    But yeah, plan B was always Jose. And that's fine with me. Might as well tank properly now.

    Why not throw a 4 year 36-40M (7.6,8.4,10or12,10or12) deal to Dragic and Ilyasova???? Not sure on how the structure would have to go but can't we use our Barbosa TPE in a S&T with one of them and offer JJ as compensation? End up trading Davis to the other team as a thanks and we are on our way.

    If we can structure it right I would keep Calderon for this year and see if we can work out a friendly extension (much cheaper) as our back up or have 10M in expiring contracts to sign DeRozan if he proves himself.

    Renounce Bayless and Weems and any other fodder that prevents this from happening.

    Dragic / Calderon / Uzoh
    DeRozan / Ross / Forbes
    Ilyasova /Landry (if NY doesnt match) / Kleiza
    Bargnani / Amir / Acy
    Valaciunas (Young Nasty) / Przybilla (Bigger Nasty) / Magloire (Big Nasty)

    Why does everyone keep talking about tanking? How did that work out for Charlotte?
