Like if we had a 40 year old Ray Allen, would the Raps still trade him at the deadline regardless of what he's able to do?

All I'm saying is if Peja can still shoot, why doesn't Triano just make plays for him where he camps out at the 3pt line. Why wouldn't BC keep him?
Peja still has game, I agree with you on that. But his biggest asset right now would be his expiring contract. Trading or letting his contract expire Peja would give the Raps more flexibility for the offseason. It's also a good trading chip. Any team looking for a spot on shooter who also has an expiring contract would be interested in Peja. Too bad he's injured though
