    "Cancer" may be too harsh of a word, but there's no denying that he's a glaring example of injustice within the locker room.

    But that's Casey/Colangelo's fault....not Bargnani's.

    Tye

    What do you think the salary cap will be this off-season? Will it stay at 58M or is it more likely to jump up to 60M?

    I’ve been running with $58.5 million to $60 million for the cap and $71.5 million to $73 million for the tax for most of the season. I haven’t heard any updated projections in a while.

    Not really sure where to put this so I figured I'd throw it in here.

    It also bumps the idea of the Raptors becoming spenders to the forefront. It has been rumoured on twitter by media folk that the Raptors are an enticing team because ownership is willing to spend beyond the tax if need be.

    Didn't see it mentioned, but does it follow from this that we should also be trading first round picks for good players since they're seemingly overvalued now? Before anybody reacts, I'm not implying anything. Honestly just a question.

    The obvious cop-out answer is to say that it depends on the opportunity. On the plus side, for whoever comes in as the new GM, the Raptors suddenly have multiple future 1st round picks to use as trade bait, which they didn't have a week ago. Theoretically, the new GM could go out and trade up to 3 future 1st round picks (ie: 2014 + 2016 + 2018), giving the Raps significant additional assets.
