    Default trade deadline wishlist.

    My biggest concern with the raptors is

    1. lack of stretch 4 (don't anyone say bargnani that's a joke)
    2. lack of veteran centre.


    so realistically I hope we get :

    1. josh smith, very far second choice: millsap

    2. timofey mozgov (nuggets)


    who or what does everyone else want? I don't want pau gasol, if there is a chance we can make a deal for josh smith, even with his expiring contract.


    until something like this goes down, I refuse to remain enthusiastic about the team...

    Rudy Gay is your stretch 4! At least that's how he's played the last two games... yeah, a conventional SF but on this team that's how he is utilized. So... no, the Raps do not need a stretch 4. And another "no" to your second point. Gray is doing well till Jonas develops. Our team biggest need is a conventional low post- back to the rim 6-10 body - either a PF or a C. The one you could throw your ball in and play the "in and out" game. This type of offense is the only missing component and our greatest need.

    I would be ecstatic with some kind of multi-team deal where we end up with Pau Gasol and Ramon Sessions/Ridnour....I need to look more at what backup PGs might be available

    *stretch 4 much less important than low-post player, and if we can get Gasol and a backup PG who's a decent passer, that should go a long way to help make sure the ball keeps moving.

    1. pass-first veteran PG (ie: Ridnour)

    2. starting PF - move Johnson to backup PF, but could also play at C with the new PF too (ie: Millsap)

    Distant #3. upgraded veteran C (to start while Valanciunas improves on the 2nd unit; Gray would likely have to go)


    LINEUP (with #1 & #2 addressed)

    C: Gray, Valanciunas
    PF: Millsap, Johnson
    SF: Gay, Fields
    SG: DeRozan, Ross
    PG: Lowry, Ridnour

    The other thing about Millsap, and I suppose Jefferson if Utah wants to trade him instead, is that Utah is trying to free up space for Favors and Kanter to play more minutes. Both have expiring contracts and Jefferson's is bigger, I think that's why it's assumed they'll keep him. For Millsap, I don't know that they'd want to take back long term money in Bargs, or another big for that matter, though one could see the logic of locking down a stretch 4 to play with Favors and Kanter....Tough situation to read....

    I would love to have milsap especially if we trade bargs and a wing for him

    It seems unlikely though so my wishlist is really just to get rid of bargs

    Why you guys would rather get Millsap than Jefferson? We need another big, not another undersized power forward

    I'm thinking someone like David West rather than Gasol or Milsap. I'm not sure what his status is with Indiana though.

    My top 3 bigs to go after would be Milsap, Jefferson and D. West (for a year or two at the most), but I would also take a chance on J.J. Hickson whom might be the more available player that would demand the least. He is having a great year for the Blazers.

    Plenty of back up PG's out there, so not really something I'm too concerned about.

    Backup PG is my ONLY concern ... we are stacked at the wing ... bigs are enough, depending on the Bargs scene.

    Actually, after the turnovers and lack of assists - maybe STARTING PG will become a need too ...

    For those interested in Ridnour, here's a creative and logical way to do it.

    -CHA wants talent, needs shooting beside Bismack and MKG.
    -MIN needs SG depth with Roy's departure
    -TOR wants a backup PG, and to clear some long term dollars with big deals to DD and Gay.

    Charlotte gets Bargnani
    Minnesota gets Gerald Henderson
    Toronto gets Ridnour and Diop

    mMoney works. Selling pretty low on Bargs - but gets a veteran backup and expiring contract.

    Amir and JV in the starting line up may work, but both guys are prone to picking up fouls and if either player gets injured there would be a serious drop off in talent with the back up bigs we have...Gray, Acy and Diop (if the trade you proposed went through). I'd much rather get a starting quality PF and have Amir as the first big off the bench.

    Ideally, I'd prefer one my starters to be a legit offensive threat in the low-post (in the mold of a Carlos Boozer, Al Jefferson, or David West).
