Any chance of Magloire returning as well? I like what he brought to the table as a veteran presence in the locker room.

As of right now, it looks like we have 13/15 players:

Lowry/Calderon
DeRozan/Fields/Ross
JJ/Kleiza
Bargs/Davis/ACY
Val/Amir/Gray

If for whatever reason there's no more trades that happen before the start of the season, who will BC sign to fill up the last two spots?

Sonny Weems (RFA)? Magloire? 3rd string pg?
A low cost SF (Barnes, Pietrus) and one of the above?

He's a shitbox. But a quality shitbox.

I was extra impressed with him because it looked like he lost weight this year as opposed to 2 years ago. He looked alot better and a bit more mobile.

If he can shed a few more pounds he can be much more effective.

My numbers. It's the way they have to do it if no further moves are made.

If they amnesty or trade, it opens up all sorts of possibilities for the numbers, so it is absolutely NOT set in stone just yet.

for a bench player he's not a bad pickup
i see the C position being held down by amir starting until JV is ready and then of course JV off the bench for now, with Bargs as our PF we will use ed often so we have to bigs instead of the traditional PF and C designations
and then we can always go small with 1 of those bigs and having kleiza or JJ at the PF
really i don't see gray getting that much action if we want to let these young guys loose this year, so this is a good signing if he's going to be the deep in the rotation C

solid bench player for about 15-18 mpg, 2.5 per or less i can't be mad at


what does that mean for Amir though? either hell be playing <20 mpg or we gotta move him.

Bargnani/Davis can handle PF duties, Jonas/Gray at C should handle most of our C minutes.. hmm

One of Davis or Amir will probably be moved. Hopefully with Calderon + JJ or Kleiza for a SF.

just find it weird that he'd be signing a multi-year contract without a pay increase. the supposed reason he signed the initial one year contract was to get a bigger the following season. i don't see how that offer wasn't made throughout the league with the premium on bigmen.

if that's the case and that's what he signed for, that's awesome news. i was worried about him coming back here for 5+ million a season.

Amir & Davis are the same player IMO 1 has to go also Klieza is pretty expendable right now too...

Lowry/Jose/Uzoh?
DeRozan/Ross/Anderson?
Feilds/JJ/QA
AB/Davis/Zubcic
JV/Grey/Mags?

Remove Amir & Klieza and you have a team like obove...

Would anyone here do a Amir & Klieza for Charlie V to come back to the t.O.?
Or how about Andris Biedrins?

What about Klieza for Wesley Johnson?

Amir & Klieza for Charlie V
agree on Amir/Davis...as i said above, i hope it's Amir that is moved
imho Kleiza is a solid "transition" piece for V at this point so i can't see him being moved right now

as for Charlie V, two words......FUCK NO
