    Default Four players we should target

    PLEASE DO NOT TURN THIS INTO A RIDICULOUS TRADE THREAD. Everyone listed here is obtainable without a great deal of fuss

    This post makes the following two assumptions. The Raptors Core going forward is Lowry/Ross/Gay/Valanciunas

    Everyone else seems to be expendable.

    The second assumption is we are not going after another near max player (although that can be argued as well)

    Derrick Williams SF/PF Minnesota
    The man is a gifted athlete and an effective 3pt shooter (35% this season) He would benefit greatly from a change in scenery and a new role.

    Wilson Chandler SG/SF Denver
    A two way player that can guard three positions. He is coming off surgery which is a completely valid excuse to avoid him. I say buy low on him as you don't ever hear the words "career ending hip injury" in the NBA.

    Paul Millsap PF Utah
    We would need to spend to keep him. By my estimate 10 - 12 million per year. But he is a great two way player tough defender good mid range shooter, a good rebounder not to mention gritty. A true Casey 4.

    Steve Blake PG Lakers
    I for one am tired of PG controversies. But I do want one that could start in a pinch. Steve Blake is no threat to Kyle Lowry. He is a capable play maker and decent 3pt shooter. Duhon is a better fit in the backup role for LA.

    I'm just wondering if you can name some guys in which "a change in scenery" made a significant impact. I'm actually just curious, not being facetious and don't have time to look this up.

    Harden is playing better in Houston

    Lin (minus the brief outbreak of Linsanity) is playing better in Houston

    Glen Davis is playing better in Orlando (till he broke his foot)

    Gallinari in Denver

    McGee in Denver

    Mayo in Dallas

    Crawford for the Clips



    the reasons on these vary

    The 'change of scenery' theme actually sells quite well in most professional sports. I like Millsap, Derrick Williams and Steve Blake as potential acquisitions

    Just looking through the free agency list for the upcoming offseason (http://www.hoopsworld.com/2013-nba-free-agents/) and I notice that there are lots of decent backup PGs available, including...

    - Calderon :-)
    - Collison (if not qualified by Dallas)
    - Augustin
    - Duhon (if option not picked-up by Lakers)
    - Ridnour (under contract with Minnesota, but could be another trade target, given that he's their 3rd/4th PG behind Rubio, Shved and Barea)


    All the more reason to focus on acquiring a starting PF in any trade of DeRozan (possibly along with any of Bargnani, Kleiza, Anderson), be it a trade at the deadline or in the offseason. Millsap would be my primary PF target, be it in trade or free agency.
