Thanks for the welcome. I know he is not a "team" guy but he is the type of player that the Raptors
need. He is a high scoring wing player who wants to win more than anything. I don't agree that it would take Bosh
to get him. Remember it would be a sign and trade. In any of those situations you never get fair value. Maybe a Bargniani and Parker or even Bargniani and a '09 1st.
A classic example is Rashard Lewis for a 2nd Rounder. Maybe this is just because there was no way of Lewis resigning in Seattle. I am by no means a basketball expert I'm just thinking out loud.
If Arenas is not the guy to sign and trade, do you have any UFA's or RFA's that might be in that cateogry? If Jameson hadn't signed he might have been that perfect SF. Others that I see possibly are Smith (ATL), Deng (CHI), Gordon (CHI), and Iguodala (PHI - I know not gonna happen).
Let me know what you think. Cheers
