    Default Bargnani for...Gordon?

    Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) is reporting that the Bobcats, in their increasing persistence to trade Ben Gordon have approached the Raptors about a Bargnani trade.

    Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine

    All-Star Weekend trade rumble: Charlotte's growing determination to move Ben Gordon has presented Toronto w/another Andrea Bargnani suitor
    Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine

    Sense I get, though, is that Toronto ain't gonna bite on Bargs-for-Gordon deal. Raps have Terrence Ross & Alan Anderson playing well there
    Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine

    Gordon easier to take back $-wise than Boozer w/one less year on deal, but Raps unlikely to just trade ex-No. 1 overall pick for sake of it


    This would certainly not be a deal that would provide the Raptors would a player they could use, and it's good to know that the Raptors are not rumored to be seriously considering this deal.

    What I wonder is what Charlotte would be willing to include as incentive that could make it worthwhile? Draft picks? Prospects?

    I personally don't think they could include enough to make it worthwhile for the Raptors...but curious how others view this?

    If we could get a pick or a good prospect, then maybe.

    I really just want to shed the Bargnani era once and for all.

    LOL this is the worst Bargnani rumour that i've heard.

    I mean, why would the Raps want Gordon? they already have Anderson. They already have Ross who's not getting much minutes. Acquiring Gordon just doesn't make sense.

    I only would do it, if Charlotte includes their 1st round pick next year

    That's what I'm hoping for with news like this being broken. I have no desire for Gordon, but this type of proposition could open up more avenues for Bargnani and allow the Raptors to gain a nice piece or two as well.

    Seriously.

    But they can't trade their own first rounder because of the restrictions on it to Chicago for the Tyrus Thomas trade. I bet Jordan wishes he had two mulligans for Thomas: one for giving up a 1st for him and two for giving him a $40M extension.

    Charlotte does have a 1st from Portland (top 12 protected until 2016 then protected) and a 1st from Detroit (top 14 '13, top 8 '14, top '1 15, unprotected '16).

    I would be looking for 3rd teams immediately.

    And this incident with Gordon was ridiculous. I don't care how frustrated one might be with a situation, that is just such a dick move by Gordon. I actually had quite a bit of respect for Gordon prior to reading this a few days ago. Anything I had ever read about him in the past always talked about his work ethic and professionalism. Yeah, so much for that.... while making $12M this year and $13M next:
    According to the report, Dunlap was trying to speak to the team prior to its game against the Celtics on Monday, but Gordon kept dribbling a ball. Gordon apparently also told his head coach that he need to “humble himself.” Adding to the mess was the fact that general manager Rod Higgins was also in attendance, and one source mentioned in the Yahoo! report that the entire thing was “beyond disrespectful.”

    The Bobcats didn’t suspend Gordon, though, but there might be a reason for that. The club didn’t take action because they reportedly didn’t want to lower his trade stock heading into next week’s trade deadline.

    Im doing some crazy trades on trade machine that involve Raptors getting both Hawes and Sessions, as well as Charlottes 1st roun pick.

    At least to me, it seems doable and attractive for all 3 teams!

    Is it just me or these Bargnani rumours are starting to lean on the side of "cray-cray"? BTW, there goes our trade partners in Milwaukee. Ilyasova and Jennings for Smith.

    Booo....this is actually probably the worst option available. A douchebag who plays our deepest position, is a chucker, and we'd still have to pay him another year at a stupidly high rate (way to go, Joe Dumars).....As much as I would dislike a Boozer trade, if BC does this instead he's completely lost his mind.

    I did not read this but I am 100% okay with this deal under the following two scenarios

    1.) They throw in Kidd-Gilchrist (not likely I know)

    2.) They throw in Ramon Sessions. for Fields or Kleiza

    I'm okay with this for two reasons.

    1.) Ben Gordon would give us a 12 million dollar expiring trade chip next year

    2.) Ramon Sessions would be the perfect backup PG/small ball SG
