Also Barbosa told me he loves Toronto and preference would be to re-sign long-term. He recently changed agents but wouldn't say why #Raptors

I'm fine with the Barbo staying if he can find a way to trade Collangelo.

as a sixth man he is perfect, problem is this team isn't deep enough to have barbosa as a 6th man,

barbosa coming off the bench for a the lakers would be unreal, barbosa fits a team that is in the playoffs,

if we sign the right players make the right trades and get our team ready for a playoff push next year i could see barbosa fiting well with this team

rapsmann but whats the problem? Our building-rebuilding will be over one day

You have a free agent saying he wants to be in Toronto

there is nothing out there available for Barbosa that is more useful to us than himself. Long or short term. And no, clearing capspace is not useful

I'm confused. How is trading him for a late first rounder, or even the cap space required to sign WC, not more valuable than holding onto him for the rest of the year? Remember, at the end of the year, no matter what team he is on, it doesn't affect our ability to re-sign him.

that's funny!

Love Barbosa and the energy and passion that he brings. So much hate for a guy that is always in attack mode and wants to win so bad. It's unfortunate. It's pretty evident that his teammates respect and like him too.... much better than having an antoine wright situation again.

IMHO, Barbosa is a prime example of an asset that could and should be used before it's gone. He is absolutely not essential to the immediate or long-term success of this team AND could be valuable to another team this season - a perfect recipe for at least fishing around for deals, something I am sure BC is doing.

However, if all that's being offered are longer or equal contracts and no young prospects/draft picks, then what's the point of making a deal?

Its a no brainer, trade him. He becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer. If we can get some type of first round pick it would be good. If he really liked Toronto, we can sign him back in the summer. Its a deep draft, maybe we get a good rotational player, or maybe we package the pick with our current 2012 pick to move up the draft if we don't get No.1. Turn Barbosa into some type of asset, we ain't going to the playoffs this year.

not much of an asset unfortunately
he could be useful to a few teams with no depth, like orlando or the lakers
beyond that, who would want him now?

Well, we will see how much of an asset within the next 2 weeks.

Man, I want barbosa to go to a contender, he's really useless here, as much as I love his game.

Trade him and take on salary as a means of acquring a pick or getting a youngish player who could potentially start for this team.

-Barbosa for CharlieV and detroit's 1st rounder. Raps essentially take on a lot of salary as Charlie V makes similar salary next season and then has a PO for 2013-2014.

. -Barbosa,Forbes for B.Gordon and detroit's 2012 first round pick (un protected), and possibly their 2014 first rounder. Raps would be taking on a lot of salary, possibly over 22 million in this deal, depending on if BG uses his PO for 2014.

-Barbosa for Carroll and DJ Augustin (they already have Kemba as their future PG, Carroll has an early termination option for 2012-2013 that he will not use (he will make $3.5 million in 2012-2013 if he doesn't use the ETO). Raps would make him an RFA I believe and match an offer for him in the summer.

-Barbosa for J.Dudley + their pick. Now there are positives and negatives to both sides of this deal. Bottom line is that Sarver is very cheap and looks to save $$$, Dudley will essentially make 17 million over 4 seasons after this season, however he is a solid player and can contribute to a team. I avoided Childress + Frye as Childress is making a lot of $$$ but is barely used (if at all) and Frye is Bargs' light.
