    If the Raps trade for Telfair I may just look for another team to support because that indicates they either a) don't know what they are doing, b) don't care about winning. I take that all back if they get rid of a crappy contract (Kleiza) for him.

    Getting Telfair would just be insurance for if Lowry gets hurt.
    Exactly. A Haddadi-Telfair trade, simply to provide added backup PG depth/insurance for half a season, is hardly an earth-shattering deal.

    Unfortunately, I see this type of deal as being far more plausable than one to acquire a next-tier PG like Ridnour or Maynor, unless Minny/OKC develop a sudden affection (or would it be affliction?) for Kleiza & a 2nd round pick...

    Telfair's really cleaned up his life/game in the past couple years. I remember watching a couple suns games amazed at how much better he is.

    Edit: "better" than god awful keep that in mind

    Telfair - I was thinking a straight-up Haddadi-Telfair trade (Telfair is expiring, Haddadi is non-gauaranteed in 2013-14) works in the Trade Machine, to be a simple trade to help both clubs.
    This is what the Raps should do.

    We may lose Quincy Acy. I just have this feeling he will be in some package at some point.

    Here's an idea:

    Kleiza + Lucas for Collison + Maynor
    http://basketball.realgm.com/tradech..._trade/6245184

    It gives us a bigger, younger point guard in Maynor and a backup big man in Collison who's tough veteran competitor. OKC gets an experienced guard who can make shots, and a 'power wing' in Kleiza which adds flexibility to their lineups.

    There was also this other infamous guard from NYC and a cousin to Telfair.....Stephon Marbury. Do we really want to mess with those genes? ....just kidding of course but his reputation precedes him....havent seen him lately I admit....could be another Green who has cleaned up his act.

    Just go for telfair. We need a bigger pg behind Lowry, a 6-2 or 6-3 guy. We're only renting him for the rest of the season and then we let him go and find someone else. It's not a big problem

    Ridnour is a poor man's Jose Calderon and I'm not sure I could take watching him stumble around on the defensive end.

    My vote considering money and the balance between offense and defense would be taking a flyer on a young guard like Joseph or even signing someone like Jonny Flynn, an undrafted rookie (Scott Machado, etc). The guy is just insurance in case of Lowry going down and John Lucas really stinking up the place.

    Random Trade opinion - We should move Alan Anderson for a prospect or a late 1st or 2nd rounder etc while he's hot (a la Ed Davis) since he has no place on this roster given the multitude of swing-men under contract - Gay, Derozan, Ross, Fields, Kleiza, Pietrus (FA). Plus this would open up some time to Ross and Fields/Kleiza who should have no problem filling his production (don't be fooled by his hot 4th quarter - he's a bit of a gunner on a team with multiple better swingmen scorers).

    I rather have Lucas backing up Lowry than Telfair. Ridnour would be awesome though.

    Looks like Telfair for Haddidi and a 2nd rounder.... Apparently he is good defensively?

    Good is a stretch. Solid is better suited. Defense reminds me of Bayless', without the fouling.

    Then he should be able to hold the fort for 10 minutes a night right? He doesnt play much but

    @AlexKennedyNBASebastian Telfair to TOR makes sense. He's close with Kyle Lowry, Rudy Gay and Alan Anderson. They train together every summer in Las Vegas.
    looks like further Chemistry coming in...
