    who gives a fuck, if they can't sign an above average/all star SF, I don't wanna waste my time watching them.
    What's funny, is that there are no above average/all star SF free agents that we can sign. What do you and pillowmint want BC to do, conjure one out of thin air. There was never any available. And don't mention Batum, that was never an option. The only avenue was the trade market, but why would anybody with a stud SF trade him? They're like gold. Raptors' management is slowly changing the makeup of the team. Last year was an audition year and obviously Bayless and James Johnson failed. For me, I'm looking forward to next season and see if the new additions will fare better. I think they will.

    GOD F*CKING DAMN IT!
    I give up, I honestly give up. It's one thing to overpay Landry Fields, but it's a complete white flag waving on the FA market when you pick up 48yr old Anderson. When people say he played well, do you get that he played well on a garbage team that was already eliminated from the playoff hunt...WHO CARES?! It doesn't mean jack if/when a player of ours does well when there is absolutely nothing on the line. Anderson is a move in the wrong direction, stop being homers. If I was Casey I'd be pissed. All contemplation of picking up season tickets have been burned out of my brain. If this is our line up come day 1 then BC better hide his mediocre ass!
    so who do you want that would help you renew season tickets for garbage time? anderson knows the team, somewhat, the team knows he can shoot, if they ever needed to play him they know he can do one thing and has practiced and played with the team. guy should average 1-4 minuntes a game over the course of the year and this is how you decide on season tickets?

    i challenge you to go through all possible available free agents left and see who you would prefer to play at vets minimum with the knowledge that they will have 60+ dnp coaches decision. come back with some names and we can have a discussion.

    So players currently signed (or apparently going to be signed):
    C: Valanciunas, Gray
    PF: Bargnani, Amir, Davis, Acy
    SF: Fields, Kleiza, Anderson
    SG: DeRozan, Ross
    PG: Lowry, Calderon

    That would be the minimum required 13-man roster, but that doesn't include a 3rd string PG, which I can't imagine them going into the season without.

    got to be uzoh and big cat. i cant stand bobby brown.

    I was hoping we'd manage to pull off a trade, I never thought Batum was in the cards...and at that price, I'm glad he wasn't. I'm pretty sure I got all dreamy eyed when I started hearing about the possibility of Iggy. To me he's Casey's dream too, great defender, nice interior game. Plus I love the idea of a tougher team. I also think that there are a couple of better options than Anderson, of course he knows Casey's system so that's a plus, but I thought we should have taken a shot at either Martel Webster, or even Travis Outlaw. By no means do i think they're great, but I do believe they're an upgrade to Anderson. Just me tho.

    will.
    I didn't say it was easy, the fact is BC made a mistake by signing fields. No one knows if a trade for iguodala or gay would've been possilble anyways, but BC reducing our financial flexibility by signing fields b/c he was so hell bent on steve nash (which he miscalculated) means that a trade for either of the two is less likely. And he is at fault b/c of that.

    How BC gets the guy is not my problem, Im hard pressed myself to finds a solution, I've got work early tomorrow and don't spend nearly as much time on here as I used to. but doing poorly next year means:
    1. our pick (that could potential be the golden stud sf you are referring to) goes to houston
    2. if we do poorly no free agents are going to want to come here.

    so it's a lose lose situation.

    Im not going to respond to the other guy (noprops) b/c he is a known idiot/troll/teen.
