    I really think that Pau Gasol is next to be traded to Toronto. BC made it clear that they are buying and not selling. They are willing to take back huge contracts. With that said I think Pau is next. He fits huge contract being missed used in LA(coming of the bench). He also is very familiar with KLow and Rudy. All played for Memphis in 06-07. Huge contract but it also expires the same time as KLow and Rudy. Expect an Bargani/Gasol swap around deadline.

    Would be great. Really great. We would be a luck for the playoffs next year that's for sure.

    We'd be in the title run then for sure. Top 3 team if that happens
    Miami
    Chicago(if Rose is still the same)
    Toronto

    Not to kill with optimism but Raps still have a shot at netting a playoff spot. Bucks Celtics and Hawks are falling and wegot a good stretch of winnable home games in Feb.

    Would have been a much different story if Raps closed out Cavs won tonight and werent robbed 3 times already though. Teach the Raps how to close Rudy! anyone notice that DeRozan with Lowry as starter had a good game?????? just saying.

    Default BC's quote about AB after Hawk game

    “Andrea is a player that has definitely garnered interest. Unfortunately when he gets hurt that takes him off the market,” Colangelo explained after breaking down the Gay trade to reporters.

    “That’s not to say we’re going to trade Andrea … He’s a unique talent, but sometimes a change of address is not bad. I’m not saying he’s asked for a trade, but he would certainly not fight or resist a situation if it was the right situation.”

    “Right now there’s no assurances we trade Andrea. Right now, the goal and the focus is to get him back healthy on the court and let him contribute to this team and we’ll see where things go,” Colangelo said.

    I'm just thinking right now, Bargs for Gasol, that's all I can think of for the time being.

    And then DD for somebody else to address remaining issues.

    With Gasol though, where do we push JV to? the 4? That actually might not be so bad?

    JV would still be the a 5. It would so great for JV to learn from Pau for a year and half. Good news LA just lost to PHX.

    That sure sounds like Andrea is gone.
    Of all the wings to move you would think AA would be first. He's cheap, can be added as a throw in on any trade...that allows you to keep Demar and Ross...The problem I see is that if you move AA, Jose (already gone), and Bargs who's shooting your three's? Clearly there's another shoe to drop. Also, MLSE must not care about the new cap taxes coming at all.

    Any trade without Derozan, Gay, Lowry, Ross, Valanciunas, Amir I'm totally fine with.

    Wow, it feels so good to say that we have Rudy Gay...

    That's basically saying they want Andrea on the floor ASAP to boost his trade value.

    Without Calderon, matching salaries for Gasol gets tougher. Bargs + Fields? Bargs + Kleiza + Haddadi or Gray? Bargs + DeRozan would be an overpayment, and Bargs + Johnson would leave us woefully weak at PF/C.

    Before this season started, almost every Raptor fan would have loved that trade. Gay is having a bit of a down year, but he has been very consistent over the previous several seasons. Calderon is having a phenomenal season, but it is a contract year and he hasn't had any injury issues yet (maybe because his minutes have been limited with Lowry on the roster). Davis has been a pleasant surprise, but I still don't think his ceiling is anywhere near Gay's. Teams have started to gameplan extensively for DeRozan, especially with Bargnani out. Gay won't leave them that option. Chemistry is a hard thing to predict, but the Raptors now have an incredibly athletic roster, with multiple scoring threats. A good coach could really do something with this team.

    Gasol
    Amir
    Gay
    DeRozan
    Lowry

    Reserves - JV, Ross, Fields/Anderson, Lucas

    The starting 5 might have a problem with spacing, but they could sure hurt you in the paint and run. You might substitute JV and Amir, but I think you win more now with JV coming off the bench.

    Raptors would probably need a PG coming back from LA in a Gasol deal.

    TOTALLY in with this thinking.

    except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.

    Ross is a better fit with Gay. Fields is a great defensive/glue guy. DeRozan is the odd man out. Anderson should also be traded, considering he's a 30+ veteran on an expiring deal. Pietrus will walk after the season.

    The Raps could either bring back a 4th wing in trade, free agency or via the draft (if they keep their pick).

    A primary wing rotation of Gay, Ross & Fields has good balance to it.
