Well to me any move that adds a solid ~30 year old to this team right now is simply odd.

If you just add any talent that's good for this current team, you can easily hurt the team long term. In fact, most likely you will.

2012 draft is so good.
And it makes so much sense for Raptors to suck one more year while waiting for Valanciunas. And then add Drummond or Barnes or whoever with another top 5 pick.
That's a serious young core.

"Add talent" through free agency generally doesnt work unless (A) you already have a great core which you don't yet; or (B) you don't just add talent but add superstar talent like Miami or LA or whatever.
