    Default Bargnani for..... Hawes!?!?!?!

    • The Raptors have also engaged the Sixers in conversations centered on Bargnani, sources said. No word on what the Sixers would need to offer in return, although a Western Conference executive suspects it would involve center Spencer Hawes.

    Hmm....but what else would be involved??? I would definitely be ok with Hawes as part of the big rotation....but we'd still be thin at PF because he's way too slow to get a lot of minutes there.

    Maybe as part of a multi-team trade where they send Turner elsewhere and we get something from that 3rd team??? Maybe with Minnesota getting Turner and Ridnour coming to us (a man can dream....)

    I never realized Hawes was just 24 (25 in April).

    One year left on his deal beyond this season at $6.6M.

    I had the same thought, but with our wing rotation so set, I don't see where Wright fits. THat's why I thought maybe a multi-team deal.

    Ok, trade machine isn't saving my trade...but it works, I swear....

    Tor gets: Ridnour, Hawes
    Minny gets: Evan Turner (would give them what htey wanted from Roy in a lot of ways, though not as good..but young and healthy)
    Philly gets: Bargnani, Anderson

    Thoughts?

    *I would do this over Boozer if it has to be decided now. Try to address PF situation with whatever exceptions, or with another trade, where Hawes and Ridnour are both expiring quality role players going into next season. Probably better trade chips than Bargs.

    Wright is expiring filler to make the numbers work and possibly a replacement for AA after this season.

    But we still have 4 wings with Demar, Gay, Ross and Fields....I know it's to make the numbers work, but if both were on the table, would you take that over Hawes + Ridnour???

    I don't think Philly gives up Hawes/Turner for Bargnani/Anderson. It makes no sense from their perspective.

    I would change this a bit and move D Williams to Philly and send Anderson to Minny instead of Philly and I think it becomes a little more easier for all teams.

    Toronto - Ridnour, Hawes
    Philly - Bargnani, Williams
    Minny - Turner, Anderson

    I'm cool with that....salaries still work? Also, Minny does have a pick to offer if they want, so that could be in play.

    Yup, the trade machine isn't saving trades but here is the imaginary link:

    Not trying to rain on the parade but Anderson is a zero value player. There are 10 guys in the d league minni could sign for the minimum so if the contract is needed fine, but don't think he adds any value. So getting Ridnour and the #2 pick from last year for bargs and his huge, long contract is a complete pipe dream. The fact that you think minni might add a 1st rounder as well is comical. Seriously, think about it.

    the only reason I wouldn't do this is 1. i believe anderson is still largely unknown in the nba and for that reason can serve as a valuable asset should we make the playoffs this or next year because he can suprise a lot of teams with his scoring off the bench, also it leaves us thin at the small forward position and if you look at what minnesota is giving up.. ridnour? and gets evan turner.. thats a little lop sided imo.. but for the raptors i wouldnt mind it i guess because were getting what we need in a pg and a big

    For this season, IF Anderson is traded:

    Rudy Gay, Landry Fields, Mickael Pietrus, Linas Kleiza.. Plus Demar and Ross can play spot time at the 3 during small ball lineups.

    So...

    Definitely taking this. Run with it, and run FAR. Depending on who we deal, having a wing rotation of maybe (if Fields/Anderson are dealt), than Derozan, Gay, Wright, Ross looks promising. With a guy like Hawes who rebounds and stretches the floor, plus the financial perspective isn't so bad compared to Boozer/Gasol.

    Take it.

    Does that count as another option beside Boozer, Matt?

    Not sure. It says Toronto engaged Philly. It doesn't say anything about Philly returning interest.

    Anyway, I don't really care what the deal would look like....I think Toronto might try to get a 3rd team involved to see if there are options that actually address needs at other positions, rather than settle for reinforcing the strong positions on the team. If that can't happen, as long as it's not total crap coming back, I'm ok with it.

    Hawes is interesting.. another sideways move essentially but I like that he will have an expiring contract next year. Definitely a trade I would do.

    Bargnani/Anderson for Hawes/Wright works (and is a trade that I could see both teams doing, assuming Philly is really interested in Bargnani).

    Any short-term contract is great. Lower-value contract? Better.

    The only thing I like is the expiring contract
