    Default Something is Brewing, I Smell a Trade Coming Up

    Gasol is out versus Knicks while Bargs is out indefinitely, i smell a trade coming up.

    Calderon is playing at a high level to showcase his talent before he's gone, he will be missed, still manage to dish 10+ pts and 10+ asts on any given nights as a starter. Anytime now, BC, pull the goddamn trigger, hopefully before Dec.15th we can hear the good news.

    I'm starting to think that BC is neither capable nor willing to trade Bargs for something of real long-term value in return. By value I mean youth+talent.

    They are out because of injuries, not because they are being held out of games for a trade. Calderon is not playing at a high level. He still isn't shooting well, he just got more assists because he got more playing time since Lowry is out.

    Hopefully we see a trade soon, but I don't see any reason to think a deal is close yet. I certainly hope BC is on his phone constantly trying to work something out.

    thats your intuition, a couple injured guys? Wow, we are getting desperate around here lately...

    Everyone is waiting till the full rosters open up on the 15th. Thats the absolute earliest you will see movement. Nothing before.

    Orrrr, it could just mean that they're both injured....

    We're not hearing any Rubio for Bynum rumours just because they're injured

    The rumour this morning on ESPNRadio was that Rubio is coming back to play this weekend, I believe they said Saturday. And there are still plenty of rumours(truths) out there about Bynum being a dickhead.

    Oh. I guess u meant trade rumours... carry on then.

    hahahaha. ok. Seems like a great time to trade one of your 2 functioning point guards right now doesn't it? When Bargs went down his only option became amnesty or keep. I suspect it will be keep.

    A trade could/should be coming, but I don't think it would have anything to do with Bargs and Gasol sitting.

    I mean if I were BC and on the final year of my contract and my team has the second worst record in the league, and I'm on the verge of losing the guys in the locker and am entering a strech of games where my team is playing at home in front of frustrated fans that are going to start booking my team every time the other team goes on a bit of a run. Heck yeah there better be a trade coming.

    When you play on the road you don't have to face the people that make it possible for you to have a job. When you're at home there is no escape. Fans booing at it's own team every game is the kind of shit that gets played on ESPN so much that you become the laughing stock of of GM's.

    Am I the only one to think that its best to package Lowry in a trade, hopefully that would bring back more .. not a fan of his and I really see him being the NEXT problem after Primo Pasta

    Yep!

    Does anyone really think Bargs can be traded for an asset or assets that would be of greater value to the Raptors than exercising the amnesty provision?

    Under the new CBA, and given what Bargs brings, it is hard to envision any GM willing to make a trade that provides greater value to the Raptors than the cap flexibility the amnesty provision would.

    Do you really think he has no value? First you shop him, than you can decide if his worth to the team is null. I don't see how it hurts to see what people offer, before you take a drastic measure.

    I think people forget how talented Bargnani is. He reminds me of Z. Randolph when he was on New York. Everyone had given up on him but look at him now. What he needs is some one who can motivate him. He

    You are probably right and everyone dying for a trade should be aware of that.

    Something tells me when dudes that were signed this year are eligible to be traded is when you'll see something happen

    How much of the season did Bargnani miss last year? HALF. How much of the season will he miss this year? Likely half.

    I swear this guy hurt himself at home while stiring his Primo pasta sauce. I think the team should launch a full investigation to find out.
