Let's hope Colangelo panicks like the fans and overpay for Marion instead of taking a cautious approach. Chill out. If Marion walks we trade Bosh and rebuild with Bargnani and Calderon... and quickly at that. A good pick this year, a year of seasoning for Bargnani and Derozan, and cap space in a huge free agent market. Sounds better than panicking.

Yes Marion would be good at 7, but 9?
