    Default Anybody out there still want Bargnani back?

    I was one of his very last die hard defenders. At this point, I'd trade him for a lemon lime Gatorade.

    I'd take a blue Gatorade, and that kind sucks!

    I don't need a Gatorade. In fact, I'm willing to buy you both Gatorade!

    Well, I think it's pretty dumb to trade him without first seeing how he performs in a sixth-man role. He sometimes gets red hot. Sometimes he plays decent defense. As a sixth man, there is no risk putting him out there. If he shoots cold for five minutes or more, just sit him down again and try again the next game. His trade value will be much higher as the playoffs approach anyway. There will likely be a team or two looking to shore up their scoring in hopes of a playoff run. Trading him now for little in return is pretty stupid and will look very stupid if he becomes a productive sixth man on another team.

    He won't want to play for any other NBA team.
    He'll go back to Europe.

    I'd throw BC into that trade for Gatorade and see if Gatorade bites.

    Gatorade gladly accepts your offer.

    This absolutely. Regardless of what we think of him, in the right role he could be incredibly effective. Especially if he isn't coddled the way he was here. He's still an asset and we need to treat him that way. As Casey said, we're still an 11-20 team, and anything that helps that needs to be done. Get him back and hope he kills it off the bench. And then see what Colangelo can move him for.

    i think its a forgone conclusion that bargs is no longer part of this team..& lots of articles have been popping up saying the same thing..

    & this from Hoopshype wire today.

    Steve Kyler: Bargnani is no longer in the picture in Toronto, they'll play him to prove he's healthy, but a trade is almost inevitable at this point Twitter @stevekylerNBA

    id say our christmas wishes are comming true !

    If we're mentioning fruit flavours in the same sentence as Bargnani, then that flavour should be lemon.

    He's gotta go. Even if he does come off the bench and does well, BC will want him starting, Dwayne Casey will get fired because of him and then it's just another roller coaster ride and heart ache for the entire Raptor nation. It's time to turn the page.

    No. Anything that disrupts what they have is downright destructive. I don't care for his scoring and defensive indifference. He's just a bad dream that needs to go away.

    id be ok with him off the bench for a short period to see if he can figure it out or not. they seem to have gotten through to lowry and i assume by now bargs has to get it watching them go 7-1 with him on the bench. he would be a great piece to have off the bench if he would try

    That is a dangerous assumption, me thinks.

    I don't think barg's ego will allow him to come off the bench.

    He should be moved...but I am interested to see if he is capable of playing a complementary role, he is a good passer of the ball. If he can be be efficient off the bench and not be such a ball stopper, might be worth holding on to him til the off season. Lets also keep in mind many teams won`t want the 23 million left on his contract. and Believe that BC wants way more for him than he will be able get, unless it is a multi player, multi team blockbuster (!)
