Default Ford's Trade Evaluation: Raptors

Plus, Toronto has the inside track toward signing Marion (cheaply) this summer.

Negative Spin: The Raptors still aren't a contender, even with Marion. Chris Bosh looks as if he's already packing his bags for the summer of 2010. Toronto had to take back Marcus Banks' ugly contract. What's the plan for the future? It's pretty cloudy at this point.
