    Default Could the Rudy Gay trade attract free agents to T.O

    Rudy comes ... Raps go 4-2 (losing to the Heat and Boston is nothing to feel bad about), Rudy gets 2 game winning shots. I actually heard reporters talking Toronto, other players and coaches are taking note.

    If we somehow trade a few players, get some cap space, and we are willing to go into the taxes to get players will players actually want to come here without having to get overpaid???

    I personally think with the team we have now we are a playoff team (no this year ... too big a hole), top 5 or 6 in the east next year.

    Don't forget:
    - Rudy will have more time with the team.
    - Big Val and Ross will only improve.
    - DeRozan is getting more space.
    - If Bargnani stays he will be an above average 6th man.
    - This is a young team that has a Ton of room to grow.

    Will Free agents actually want to come to T.O???

    I say no. It will take multiple playoff years to attract people to TO. We don't have the money until after the 13/14 season anyways.

    I am not sure to be honest.

    I think the first factor needed to answer this is how good the Raptors will be. With a 4-2 record and 5 of 6 opponents being playoff teams, winning might be easier to sell for Toronto.

    The bigger issue is going to be the CBA. The Raptors might be enticing but they are going to be limited to MLE or possibly sign and trades. They won't have cap space - even if they amnesty #tradeBargnani.

    The team just won't have any money if you still have DeRozan/Gay/Bargnani on the team. Plus I don't think Toronto becomes a hot destination overnight just because they turned it on the last half of the season and finished ninth or whatever. But I do think that there's a different vibe and that it looks like a pretty fun team to play for in the limited sample size since Rudy arrived. I think any real progress starts with the playoffs though.

    Pacers are pretty close to where they were last year without Granger and they have played all year without him. Pacers are a good team with or without Granger.

    I'll give you the Nuggets but with an asterisk: all the guys in the NBA are talented and teams scout based on the normal game plan with the normal lineup. Throwing in different players often leads to teams not prepared because the scouting report is not as thorough. I know I am grasping at straws here - just saying. haha
