24hrs from now we might have a better idea as to what may happen with this team going forward. What would have to happen tomorrow night to make you the happiest (please exclude anything with us getting Chris Paul, Lebron, Wade etc...).

Do you want the rumoured deals to happen, Caldy for #10 pick, Fernandez/#23 for #13. Do you want Hedo traded and if so for who? What do you expect to happen in Raptor land tomorrow night? I don't know about anyone else but i expect something more then us just picking at #13.

if we can get expiring contracts for both Caldy and Hedo I would say mission accomplished.

and one of the top sf would be a pipe dream

Calderon for the 10th is as likely as us getting CP3.

Don't see why you would put in scenarios that wont happen.

but unfortunately...not happening...

i just want hedo or caldy gone...+ dont want to lose the draft pick...

that fernandez deal IMHO is redundant...we already have a shit load of "average" guards in our team...dont need another one....what we need is a clear cut starter....and iam hoping derozan is gonna step up...

also, i would love to draft bradley...trade caldy
and one of either Bosh or bargs....dont want both of them back...
trade evans + banks for picks

bradley/jack/banks
derozan/weems/beli
hedo/?
bosh?/amir/evans
bargs?/dorsey?

the more i look at it...the more i dislike the front court...we're so fucked

What would I want the most???...hmmmm

I want BC to say (again), "You wanna shake up the world tonight?" - at least that's the kind of attitude I'd like to see from our front office, in terms of trades and/or draft choice.

Raptors (Part 2)" target="_blank">YouTube - NBA Stories: Toronto Raptors (Part 2)
- Fast forward to 3:30, if you don't know what I mean.

Oh, and I don't mean to draft another 'Bargs'

24 hours from now, despite all the rumours and the fact that I know BC is working his ass off, I have the eerie feeling that less will occur than most people think. Perhaps one trade at the most and if we do trade, it will involve dealing Hedo and likely adding an additional first round pick.

Besides that, I'm hoping more happens because the more the better; the team needs a little bit of shaking out as it's starting to build towards a clearer direction. Specifically, putting the team in a position to acquire two or three second and third tier free agents and/or make several trades that net us the equivalent. Lastly I'd say any move that might help convince Bosh to stay would help, as I think at this point he's just looking for a reason to stay here (or not have to leave and be #2), so why not give him one.

I just want anything to happen. If nothing happens tonight, it's going to feel like there won't be enough happening through the off-season. It's going to feel like this team is a little stuck. That they are not evolving, but devolving. I'll be expecting Devo songs for the player intros. Are we not Men?

nothing at all is better than a bad deal
sort of like signing Hedo when he didn't have to

Yes - in the past I would have felt that way. But now nothing means the bad deals that are here, yet remain. There is but stagnancy. The stench will start to build.

The draft will be Colangelo's first best chance to inject some new life into a corpse of a team. No - it won't be his last best chance, but if nothing happens with the first best chance, then it will mark ever worsening scenarios down the line. I'll already be pretty close to giving up on this team for some time to come. A purely emotional response - but maybe no less valid than any other kind of repsonse.

Doug Smith feels the same way, LX...

One of my big mantras is that I don’t think teams should ever make moves simply to make moves and shuffle the deck chairs. Doesn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense, does it? Well, maybe today’s different around this neck of the woods.

Maybe today Bryan Colangelo has to do something – anything – to show that he’s being proactive in trying to make improvements to his roster and set the stage for what I feel is the inevitable departure of both Chris Bosh and Hedo Turkoglu.

Quote:
The talk is cheap, it’s time for action. I’m not proposing some significant giveaway of talent but if this day ends with Toronto simply making the 13th pick in a so-so draft, people will feel it’s been a failure.

Me included.

I know, from talking to all kinds of people here and there, that the Raptors are working hard to get something done so there is no question that the effort is there.

But it needs to be turned in concrete action or we wake up tomorrow thinking, here we go again.

Mode Hedo + draft Avery Bradley if he is still there. Also look to bring in a Center from the Draft if possible

I want Colangelo to make a decisive statement in some concrete way to let me know he realizes the current dynamic doesn't work and that he's interested in creating a well-rounded team that can compete - and has the vision and ability to execute it. That's all.

whatever happend tonight, i think we need a great number 3 on the field. Hedo gone we need a young player and with him a veteran who can teach him and be good for 3 years.

i think we have already 2 pg who aren't so bad, so why trade them out. i love JJ, also BC can trade Caldy.

A BIG C, we have with barg, a big 4 we have for now (i hope for next year too), we have 2 good SG with weems and DD, maybe this year don't work out, but i think they learn a lot and i hope next year if we can have just 2 SF who can really play with their teammate, we can run for playoffs.

if i'm wrong to PG situation, i think other than CP3, we can maybe have Tony parker from SAS. maybe...

and on the 3 spot, maybe diaw or buttler ???
