Minus AP (he's 50/50 at this point). Not only that, we need a legit SG. None of those players are legit starters on this team next season. We'll probably get it in a S&T involving Marion and or Bosh. So there is a huge glut at the 1 and 2 spots. Which is why i'm starting to think BC might pick a SF in the draft and trade for a SG with the backups being Delfino and possibly AP. Overall though we should just pick the best available player, preferably one with Cahones!

no. contracts are guaranteed.

i don't think you can do this in the nhl either... i'm no expert in their cba, but i thought that other than demotion to the minors through waivers there was no option...

With what we have, I am guessing Roko will be the back-up PG and if we can bring AP back he will back-up Roko in case Roko is turning the ball over etc. This would be the best thing to d because this way Roko can develop and if he messes up AP can come in and help out.

Nahhh, listening to BC i'm convinced he's either going to pick up a veteran backup. He really doesn't appear convinced that Roko is anywhere near ready. Which he isn't.

i don't foresee the team saving much, if anything, in a banks buyout. the positive with him is that his deal is a short one, so we'd either pay him more money that any of us will ever make to chill out somewhere and count his dough, or we wait him out and maybe flip him into something when he becomes an expiring.

as much of a "problem" as our backup point situation is, we might be better off to just go into next season with what we have (plus maybe a rookie, depending on the draft) and see what roko can do, what banks can do—he did have a pretty good spell for a while in Minni, which is how he got his contract—and maybe see if delfino/parker in spot duty is good enough. there will still be guys available right up until (and past) the start of the season.

Jose got a chance and look what he turned out to be. I think we really need to give Roko a chance. If not then he'll rot on the bench and end up going toEurope. By playing him atleast we can see if he was a bust

Someone's gotta go.

Our back court

PG- Calderon/Ukic/Douby/Banks/AP?
SG-AP?/Delfino/Kapono/

-Keep in mind BC says he wants another PG and we may have 2 first round picks.

All those players and only one is a legit starter, and the only three that are likely to go are Kapono/Banks/AP.....take your pick. And imo 2 of those three need to go.

maybe bc will look to do a 2-for-1 of banks and kapono for 1 crap player. that would free a roster spot, maybe two, if that guy ended up getting waived.

but they'll soon be considered expiring contracts. both kapono and banks (and humphries, too) expire in 2011.

i remember doug smith suggesting that collangelo could trade kapono for a longer-contract player that might fit better.

a lot will depend on the draft, what happens with free agency, and probably most importantly: what happens with Bosh and marion.

That's about the only way Kapono gets traded. Unless thrown in with Bosh or Marion in a trade.

If he's not involved in a trade scenario like that, then i think we package Kapono with Humphries or another bench player and receive a longer term contract player (3-4yrs) that will fit better in what ever system BC/Triano want to build.

Then what do we do with the Nash/Jose situation. I highly doubt Nash wants to come here and come off the bench, and Jose isn't gonna be an 8Mil bench player.

I remember a couple month ago he said he likes to retire in Toronto and he has only 2 or 3 years left in his career. Also he is not the same Nash from 3 years ago

I think Roko needs to get traded to a better team that will use him. Especially after Croatia takes Euro championship this year with him on the 1. Raptors will get some money and everyone ill be happy.
