the enviroment here might be to toxic for him here, if hwere going to trade him why not now if we can get maximum value for him, i could see chicago try to get him,

any team that wants to beat the heat should try to trade for him, no one on miami can guard him, actually most of the league cant, what hurts him is whats goes on at the other end of the floor
I agree with alot of this, but will say, it's easy to look awful defensively on a team that regularly runs out 4 other below average defenders. There isn't one stud defender on the Raps team, though James Johnson comes closest.... but he's only been here for half a season. Maybe Derozan or Davis can become that, but they have a lot of work to do to get there.

Bargnani would look a lot better on a team that had more legitimate defenders. Watching playoff basketball should make it obvious that the raps don't (can't?) get physical enough on defence 1 through 5.
