    Default THE BIG DAY JULY 11 ( Trades and Free agent signing)

    Do you think BC will have one more big trade and free agents?

    He must be looking to trade calderon, and get one more solid wing player + a back up PG.

    You'd be hard pressed to convince me that Colangelo is seriously intending to bring back Jose as a full-time substitute when he's been a consummate professional and he's in a contract year where he needs to be in a situation where he can play to the best of his abilities. And Lord knows Lowry's getting his starter minutes, thats the whole reason we got him and he's already got the coach on his side. I think Colangelo trades Calderon and his expiring $10M contract to a playoff team in need of a facilitator and future cap relief in exchange for either veteran talent or future picks and cash. We could use a veteran big to start in place of Jonas for a while, and also another backup PG if Calderon leaves.

    Trading Jose and ED IMO would be the most logical decision, of course if we get a solid 3

    I hate to sound like a non believer but most of us are not thinking or expecting for another BIG move but it really starting to sound like DESPERATELY HOPING for one. If it happens..GREAT, if not.. those of you who are hoping too much will feel it more..Dont get me wrong, i do want the raps to win, just dont wana keep my hopes up when it comes to BC and his motives at this piont.

    I wouldnt be so quick to trade Calderon. Him and Lowry will be a awesome PG combo in the Eastern Conference. Plus who would back up Lowry if Jose is gone? Tru Holliday or Ben Uzoh, plz no.

    and if Jose got traded and Lowry got hurt? Who would run the point then? some D-Leugue dude, playoff hopes flushed....

    If Jose was going to have a big role in this team BC wouldn't have laid it all on the line for Nash, and then continued to pursue Lowry and Dragic afterwards. Jose's trade value could net a capable backup PG and another talent also. Looks to me like Jose's as good as gone.

    Is Jose being shopped? Does Bayliss' house have a "For Sale" sign on it?

    Raps have a lot of transactions to finalize. Too many needing certain order to complete could cause it all to fail. Personally I expect something else to come. JJ will be gone at the very least.

    I would love to see a blockbuster worked for Rudy Gay, but my gut tells me that BC is targeting Iguodala. Several of Toronto's tradeable assets would seem to matchup quite well with Philly's needs - backup PF (Amir/Davis) and/or SF (JJ) and backup PG (Calderon/Bayless).

    no Iggy. Stick with what we have unless we're trading for a C to hold place for JV

    I watched an interview with BC following the four team sign and trade to land Turkaglu in which he was lauded for his ability to get the deal done. What I remember most was his statement to the effect that the easiest way to follow the deal was to know that all of it was accomplished simultaneously ( the teams threw into the middle of the table what they were giving and then took out what they were receiving). July 11 may not be the same set of circumstances, but perhaps the transactions will be accomplished without a chronological order.

    I agree with this. Iggy may be on our radar.

    When it comes to signing Fields, they are going to have to renounce some exceptions and possibly players. My thinking is the Raptors are going to want to keep as many assets as possible. To keep as many assets as possible (namely MLE) a chronological order will be necessary - I think.

    Regardless, it will be interesting to see what happens.
