Raptors The All-In-One Andrea Bargnani Thread

Quote:
Toronto general manager Bryan Colangelo, to the surprise of no one, is still more than willing to trade Raptors center Andrea Bargnani. But according to a person with knowledge of the situation, Bargnani continues to spark very little, if any, interest. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the talks.

He really is that bad - and will only look worse over time. Fans are a much easier sell than opposing GMs.

How is it any surprise.. The man is just terribly overpaid, and the only thing he's ever shown is his on and off motor.

it's not a bad thing,he'll continue to play all year for the Raps leading to one of two things.

1- proving he can fit in with the current system and show his worth,whether a starter or 6th man

2- continue to play poorly and get his contract amnestied in the off season.

For his sake,I'd deal him now because Raps nation has the pitchforks out and ready to run him out of town. If he misses a couple shots,he'll get the shit booed out of him. You know it's bad when Leo and Jack aren't even holding back from sending shots his way(more so Jack)

I think Bargs to Utah or for Ridnour/Williams is still in play. They said nobody wanted Jose but then Detroit came out of the woodworks and apparently coveted him all season. It's a poker game and Bargnani suitors are trying to not show their hand. a few teams have to be interested,they just want to give bullshit in return and know BC ain't buying that all because AB is playing like crap

Who said nobody wanted Jose?

Larry Brown? Two and a half years ago?

I think this is more a case of the opposing trading partner telling the raps to shut it after the boozer leak. I think there's more than one suiter for him, and they don't want to be shortended like chicago was. they prob said put out this statement so there's no multi-offer or else no deal, and BC obliged.

and for the last damn time, Bargnani at 10 million is not severely overpaid when the likes of deandre fucking jordan are making 9......

I heard Primo tried to trade Andrea to Italpasta. But Italpasta wasn't interested so they're trying to sweeten the deal by bringing in Goudas. Just a rumor.

So does Gallo. And I'm sure there's more examples of good contracts vs. bad ones.

Does this mean they can't include the IKEA monkey in any deal?

He's wanted, thats just a silly notion. Fact is, other GM's know he's done here, they know the GM wants to move him, so why the fuck would they even dream of offering anything for him? It's GM 101 man.

They call it blood in the water...as Raptor fans you should already be experts in these situations. BC is dealing from a massive position of weakness here.

So other GMs want him, but aren't going to get him because our GM wants to trade him?

Sounds like they must not want him all that badly then, or BC doesn't want to move him as badly as he should.

no, not at all, he's played shitty, they know he's a risk so won't pay for him. Even if they want him, they know that if they wait they will get him for peanuts.....they also know he is capable of better. BC will not trade him for peanuts....BC will have to keep him.

you obviously have no sense on how prices are determined in a market system.
