    Default Bargnani Trade

    I don't know if I'm reading to much into this.....but Bargnani was 100% healthy (as the puplic knew) until we found out he was a late game scratch due to Flu like symptoms prior tip-off + my friend who works at union station (shoutout to christian) told me that Bargnani jerseys & shirts just went on clearance sale at Real Sports. I might be reading to much into this, maybe Rudy Gay's jersey sales are affecting Primo pasta's sales.

    Raptors nation let me know what you think, am I reading to much into this? or do you guys think a trade is happening very soon.

    Being realistic, I believe a trade is imminent. Bargnani's time on the court only proved he could still play. BC is just playing it safe so that bargs trade value doesn't take a dip.

    At SportChek, Bargnani's jersey is selling for $1.13

    I kid you not. Maybe it was an error in the system, but DAMNNNNNN

    I really hope he isn't traded unless we're getting back someone good. I don't want to get stuck with a Gasol or other overpaid player for multiple years.

    i have the Toronto Raptors 'Liked' on my FB page.

    They were announcing that Bargnani jerseys were on sale this week for $70.

    What a joke, I had a great laugh. $70 lol, I'd pay maybe $7 and that's a big maybe

    Gasol is still a legit all-star (with championship experience) and just 1 year left on his deal. How would he affect us for "multiple years"?

    The latest being Bargnani for Ilyasova. The trade works under the cap rules. source

    Gasol isn't particularly overpaid! His contract is big, but he is still producing at an all-star level when Howard isn't playing along side him. Besides, he's an 19 million dollar expiring contract next year anyways, so it's whatever....

    I know there was an amare for bargs trade a while back that was rumoured but I think that could be the right deal for us, say possibly if they include shumpert to the deal..something on the lines of this:

    I would support this trade more than a trade for Boozer

    how does that deal make any sense for NY? And why would we want Amar'e's uninsured knees? I doubt NY wants a guy like Bargs that badly, and the rest of the pieces they have ABSOLUTELY NO USE FOR. Not convinced Amar'e can hold up for a starter's role anymore, and paying 20 million for a backup who could fall apart at any moment seems unwise, to say the least...

    Obviously if he was the old Amar'e, I'd do this, but if he were that, I don't think NY will trade him. Oh, and also, NY is really big on Shumpert and he's maybe their best perimeter defender.

    Clearly the other pieces would be useless I think that is without saying. Teams are not just going to be willing to take a large contract like that without gaining draft picks or a young player of worth...Amare's contract expires right around when players such as Ross and Val will be looking for extensions...I would say Amare with more time is a plenty viable big

    I wouldn't touch Amare with a ten foot pole either.. however Shumpert is someone that NY is interested in dealing. I guess he's not turning out to be the same player he was prior to his ACL injury. NY is looking for a guy that can shoot the ball - someone like Reddick or Korver and rumours out there suggest that Shumpert is available.

    I don't like ACL injuries.. wouldn't want Shumpert either because of that.

    What about building on the Ilyasova rumour and bring Utah into the trade to get Milsap? If Milwaukee is willing to move Ersan for Bargs maybe we can swing Ersan to Utah for Milsap as they need a scoring SF and there could be some chemistry between the two Turks? May have to sweeten the deal and take Goodens crappy contract but swap Kleiza in the deal also then it doesn't look as bad. Resign Milsap as our starting PF at a reasonable contract and Bob's your uncle!

    Trade machine is not saving but it works out

    Toronto gets Milsap , Tinsley , Gooden
    Milwaukee gets Bargs , Kleiza
    Utah gets Ilyasova , Anderson

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine/?tradeId=b8gdlqs

    After we look like this

    Lowry / Tinsley / Lucas
    DeRozan / Ross /
    Gay / Fields / Pietrus
    Milsap / Amir / Gooden / Acy
    JV / Gray / Haddadi

    Offseason will be focused on resigning Milsap , signing a quality C backup and a back up PG

    Any reasons why the 3 teams would not participate in this trade?
