Green is a tweener. Where do you plan on playing him? Hes not big enough to guard PFs and hes not good enough and consistant enough to play SF. He cant beat people off the dribble at SF nor post them up. Whats the point of the trade? Green isnt getting much better than he is now, and he isnt that far above average. It's a treadmill trade.

Though its the Raptors, so running on the treadmill is commonly done, so this trade will probably happen and you'll all be excited how we're still in the same situation as before but without Bargs! Wooo.
