    Default Bye Bye...

    One down..one more 2 go,Amnesty Calderon or trade him and get quality player..ie Andre Igudala and Tyreke Evans.
    So far so good...
    As for..oh no we have no backup pg,u can find individual 2 play 15 minutes,free agent market for minimum salary, you know coach gonna play Kyle Lowry 35 minutes and more.
    As for what I'm looking for this year.

    Kyle Lowry
    Tyreke Evans
    Andre Igudala
    Andrea Bargnani
    Jonas Valanciunas

    And yes it can be done,raptors have plenty of talent,draft picks,derozan,ed davis,calderon one year contract,money..
    It's time 2 be relavant in the association,compete,is it championship team,probably not,but it would get the fans eager 2 watch nba again,especially me.

    That's the way BC. Amnestying Calderon would be a real shame. If he's going to be moved he's definitely worth something. I bet there were a few GM's waiting to scoop Jose up for nothing.

    Follow-up to Stein's Tweet: With Bayless QO off books, no strong need to amnesty Calderon unless blockbuster deal materializes.
    Jose survives yet again!

    There is a serious PG shortage right now...Dallas and Houston don't even have one. Calderon is way more valuable as a trade chip or...even being resigned as a lower rate of pay. Would love it if one player finished off their career in Toronto that started here.

    Secondly...the Bayless QO being rescinded likely means someone wants him in a S&T.

    OR we want to resign him to a longer deal.

    I think Bayless makes much more sense as a backup to Lowry than Jose does. Bayless can play the off-guard.

    Bring Calderon back for a year, nobody to spend that money on right now.

    we got Fields/Ross/DeRozan/ for that. makes much more sense to have a backup PG that can run the show if necessary (AND add different facets to the offense) Bayless is redundant

    Oh man ... this was good.

    How many mediocre off-guards do you think we need?

    4 teams in 6 years for Bayless. Maybe he'll pull a Billups and become what everyone always thought he'd be.





    or maybe not.

    I think the qualifying offer was made for purposes of sign and trade if need be. I don't think he was in their long term plans. It seems like a good S & T opportunity did not arise and so the offer was withdrawn. It will become clearer when/if he signs with another team. Colangelo has always built teams comprising of two quality point guards(Jose/Ford, Jose/Jack). Jose/Bayless was a rebuilding experiment. Lowry/Jose sounds good but would be expensive. I still think that Jose will be traded or if needed, amnestied. Probably traded considering his expiring contract. Knowing Colangelo's style, I think we can expect a quality backup PG if it's not Jose.

    I am not absolutely sure he is gone yet. We can still sign him, may even have a deal in place. He is an unrestricted FA, we have lost our right to match an offer that is all. We are right at he cap level due to his Cap hold. I am quite positve he would not sign anywhere for close to his Cap Hold of between 7 and 9 mil. Yea I am a bayless fan

    +1 I agree 100% with you on that one. I think Bayless will be big one day look at his per 36 stats.

    Withdrawing the Q offer to Bayless may very well increase Calderon's trade value. His cap hold saves us pretty much the same as Calderons salary and would send a signal that he (Calderon) is staying. I am sure there are rival GM's that would think we would amnesty Jose and would adjust any offers accordingly.

    well either bayless or calderon was on their was out with the acquisition of lowry so this maybe just letting bayless go...maybe in a S&T but i really doubt we can get much for him unless he is part of a package deal.

    This could also be BC trying to resign him to a long term contract, keep him and deal Calderon

    Not sure whats going to happen, but BC is going to do somethng...

    I personally think Bayless makes way more sense than Calderon as a back up, considering Calderon's contract this should be a no brainer. Plus I would hate to have two point guards each getting 20-24 min. a game, that would be pointless in my opinion, those resources should be used to fill gaps in our lineup not get us unnecessary depth.

    I hope Colangelo will either be resigning Bayless, or dealing Calderon with the plan of acquiring a true prototypical back up PG.

    Toronto trade Bayless + Fields (Sign and Trade) + Ed Davis for Andre Igoudala + Louis Williams (sign and trade)

    Think of it this way: Lowry can learn a lot from Calderon. Sure Bayless has a lot of potential, but Lowry is the future PG of this team.
