Default Colangelo Shopping Dixon & Graham

We might be saying "buh-bye" to either Dixon or Graham or both soon as BC looks to improve the roster.

The prime trade candidates are guard Juan Dixon, who has seen uneven minutes even with an opportunity to play as an emergency point guard with T.J. Ford out, and forward Joey Graham, whose role has all but disappeared with the emergence of Carlos Delfino and Jamario Moon.

"Juan Dixon has value, [as does] Joey Graham, and both are probably unhappy with their role right now," Colangelo said. "It's great to have depth, but managing depth is a different story. This time of year guys start getting a little chippy, they battle in practice and they all want to prove they belong on the court."

The Raptors visit the NBA defending champion San Antonio Spurs tonight before a quick turnaround for a game tomorrow against the Rockets in Houston. The Raptors face the New Orleans Hornets on New Year's Eve, which concludes a season-long seven-game trip.

The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 20 and players who signed this summer are eligible to be traded as of Dec. 15.

"Sometimes a trade, although insignificant with the respect to the [roles] of the players moved, can shake things up a little bit and bring back focus to the others," Colangelo said.
