    He's only making $2.1 million (on an expiring deal). If Dallas wants to move him, they'd need more to match Bargnani's salary.
    Elton Brand was picked up off Amnesty and can't be traded this year

    WHat about signing him in the offseason? The guy can still play, and would come very cheap.
    With his contract expiring this summer he will be a free agent. This would mean that I was incorrect earlier saying that he couldn't be traded until July 1; rather, Dallas will not be able to move him at all.

    As a free agent the Raptors could, in theory, sign Elton Brand to a contract as long as both sides agreed. I think he will get a raise over what he was making this year and am not convinced that the Raptors would be interested in him. But it is at least a possibility.

    Interest article by Sam Amick at USA Today. Conversation he had with Colangelo in which the major conversation piece is Bargnani and his position with (or not with) the Raptors. Here is the link: http://espnfc.com/news/story/_/id/13...nology?cc=5901

    "We began this year with Bargnani as our No. 1 scoring option. He's now No. 3 because Rudy has arrived and DeMar (DeRozan) has emerged. Now Bargnani is No. 3. There's talk about possibly moving him – and again we've talked about it, not for talent reasons but because maybe sometimes a change of scenery is the best thing for somebody. But sometimes a change of scenery can happen just by redecorating the room.

    "That has happened with our situation here, in that Bargnani goes out with an injury, we make a fairly significant trade, which changes – really – the complexion of the team in two ways. It takes a pass-first, controlled point guard in Jose (Calderon, who was traded from Toronto to Memphis to Detroit in the deal) out of the lineup, it thrusts Kyle (Lowry) back in – where we had intended to have him. And you bring in Rudy, who clearly is a No. 1 scoring option, and DeMar has emerged.

    "All of a sudden the outlook and the presence of a guy like Andrea is entirely different now. He's not relied on as a No. 1 guy. He has never been paid like a No. 1 option, but people wanted to criticize that he couldn't handle that role. I've always felt like he's been slotted in salary-wise as a No. 2 or No. 3. Maybe he's kind of fitting in nicely now.

    "If a trade doesn't occur before the deadline, or even this summer, maybe it's because we figured out that with the evolution of the team he is the right guy to be a part of this team. He's been through the hard part. This may be the easiest part ahead of him.

    Hoping he will still be the same distributor before the ACL injury.

    Bargs need to go, 1) the game against the Wizards, he purposely threw the ball with 2 minutes left, reminds me VC before his trade to the Nets, not interested, just dying to be traded. 2) Tonight's game against the Grizzlies, shows absolutely no interest whatsoever. If he's not traded, I would be darned.

    The second I saw this trade I went on the Kings forum and laughed my ass off reading the comments.

    If Raptor fans think you got it bad, be happy you are not a Kings fan.
