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?
Why do we want him? We're rebuilding, and I doubt he wants to be here. If we can use him to bring in a few young players that have potential, we win. We already have players that camp out behind the line (Klezia, Barbosa) we just need them to be more consistent which will come with time. Remember the Raptors don't win by winning games, they win by losing games which makes their chances of getting a lottery pick 10x better.
