    Default Raptor's mid-season grade by CnnSi...

    Toronto Raptors: C-
    15-27, No. 11 in the East

    The Raptors deserve two grades: one with and without Andrea Bargnani. Before their franchise forward went down with an elbow injury in December, Toronto was 4-18. Since then, the Raptors are 11-9. Even with five losses in their last six games, the quality of play and entertainment value have been up considerably. Theyíre still going nowhere, but at least itís not a total drag to watch. (In the case of Terrence Ross, it can actually be incredibly exhilarating.) The Raptors are clearly a team to watch at the trade deadline. Itís probably too ambitious to expect that they will find a sucker to take Bargnani, but they at least need to get value for Jose Calderon before he hits free agency this summer.

    haha patience Matt. Let him return to the line-up and boost his value to something reasonable. If he can't do that, then perhaps amnesty is the best direction. At least this re-affirms my point that trading Jose is Priority #1.

    I think amnestying Bargnani would be a completely idiotic idea, and i don't think there is a chance of it happenning. Why would you let another team claim him at 0-2 million, well we pay him to improve another team. Bargs still has youth and talent, he's not a amnesty candidate. I would rather take a 2nd pick and have a choice where he plays or keep him as a sixth man.

    What if we throw in a winding musical box, some shades and a monkey?

    LOL.. I don't think the negative media attention can make this situation any worse than it already is. Like someone else said, we just have to hope that when he returns, he plays half decently for long enough that another team buys in.

    My fear with this strategy is that "if" Bargnani
