    Default Tor-den-min / tor-orl-port

    Early season, possibly in December

    Toronto out: Calderon, Kleiza, Amir
    Toronto in: W.Chandler, Ridnour

    Denver Out: A.Miller, W.Chandler, C.Andersen
    Denver In: Calderon, Kleiza, Cunningham, J.Taylor, Pekovic

    Minnesota Out: Ridnour, Cunningham, J.Taylor, Pekovic
    Minnesota In: Amir, C.Andersen, A.Miller

    Why Toronto: Shedding Calderon + Kleiza contract by getting an expiring in Luke Ridnour. W.Chandler is the SF we are looking at the moment, besides he gets to reunite with his former teammate in L.Fields. Ridnour is a similar like Calderon and could be a decent backup or a 3rd stringer behind Lucas.

    Why Denver: Calderon will be a better backup behind Lawson instead of the aging washed up A.Miller. Kleiza returns back to the team that drafted him so he can comes off the bench for either of Galinari or Faried. They also get two prospects in Cunningham and Taylor. Pekovic will be a decent backup C behind McGee. With the lineups they have, they might advance to the semi-final and go 1-1 with one of the Lakers or Thunder for a conference final push when playoff comes around.

    Why Minnesota: This may sound crazy but we don't know when Ricky Rubio will return to the lineup so they are real thin at the PG spot, A.Miller is a decent backup behind Jose Barea, or perhaps he can start for the team, now the Wolves are balanced out with veterans and their young guns. Amir will be a decent backup PF or C for the Wolves while C.Andersen add that veteran presence as the 3rd C.

    Midseason to Trade Deadline
    Toronto out: Andrea, Terrence Ross, 2013 2nd round pick, 2015 1st round pick
    Toronto in: Maurice Harkless, Andrew Nicholsson, JJ Reddick, 2013 1st round pick (Top 3 protected)

    Orlando out: Hedo Turkolu, Maurice Harkless, Nicholsson, Reddick, 2013 2nd round pick
    Orlando in: Greg Oden, Andrea Bargs, 2nd round pick (TOR), Terrence Ross, 2015 1st round pick (Top 3 protected)

    Portland out: Greg Oden
    Portland in: Hedo Turkolu, Orlando 2nd round pick

    Why Toronto: If Bargs can't gel well with Valanciunas, I say Colangelo needs to pull this trigger, we get two budding prospects in Harkless (our future 3) and Nicholsson (Canadian favorite as our future 4). We also acquire a sharpshooter in Reddick who would do wonders for the Raps.

    Why Orlando: The Magic are in for a rebuild and they will be looking to get a top pick this coming year but who knows. The Magic have some good solid pieces along with with veterans. First they acquire Bargs, an allstar caliber player, could be the franchise for the team along with rookie Terrence Ross. They also acquire a future first round pick from Toronto, a solid pick in 2015 when that year will be the year of the Center and Power forwards. Greg Oden, a former 1st round pick will get a chance for a fresh new start for the team and possibly a change of scenery will rejuvenate his career.

    Why Portland: Getting rid of Oden, they acquire Turkolu, a key veteran who could make the Trailblazer a playoff contender this year, a simple trade really

    Raps Lineups
    Lowry/Lucas/Ridnour
    DeRozan/Reddick/Andersen
    Chandler/Fields/Harkless/McGuire(waived)
    Davis/Nichollson/Acy
    Val/Gray/Magloire*

    I mean, I'm not even looking at anybody's trade ideas but I am always breathless at the scope of yours.

    I'm going to repeat myself (as well) ... but nevertheless here it goes: you guys still think that if you comment on these trades that tenforthewin will even see it? History seems to indicate that most probably he posts a trade and never ever comes back to check on the thread to see what others think about it. He's like the philosopher who publishes a book about his theory of metaphysics, he does it to teach, to further the quest for truth, not to say 'hey I had this idea, what do you think about it?'

    I am an avid filmmaker, currently work at a bank as my mundane type of jobs, yeah, i'm pretty philosophical but practical when it comes to films and videos and i do like the Raptors, my one and only team, reason: I live in Toronto so why not lol, my other team being Oklahoma City Thunder. I spent 15-30min a day surfing, realgm, raptorsrepublic, and bleacherreport. I thought about applying for work at the ACC as a business consultant since i have a degree in business and finance from Humber College, so there you go.

    And yet you post, but don't communicate. You don't respond or engage in a dialogue. It would be more fun that way. It's a forum after all.
