Default BC: Andrea was a piece in the Chris Paul and Dwight Howard to the LA trades

He was on OTR today and he mentioned that Andrea's name was brought up as a third team had interest in him.

He also mentions that AB is paid as a third tier player and agrees that he needs to get tougher and stronger.

Just click on the link and look to the right to watch the interview.

OTR

just goes to show all the member on this board two things

1) not all trades related to the Raptors are necesarrily leaked (especially after the jose fiasco)

2) bargnani, whether you like it or not, holds value in this league. he IS worth his buck

I'm shocked he'd admit this.

I would argue that his patience with AB is becoming thin. If he isn't playing 'up to his potential' I could easily see him being dealt early on this season.

if Bargnani pulls down 3 more boards a game and plays average defence he's a top three center league wide.

you guys talk like he's a scrub. Its embarrassing

As to point 1, I would argue that most trades are not leaked. BC has a reputation of running a pretty tight ship.

You could say that about a number of players around the league though and you know that.

I'd like to know what qualifies as talking about someone as if they're a scrub. I don't see anything of the sort. SJ making shit up again. Talk about embarrassing. And boring.

I do, I agree 100%, however few of them would I truly believe they had it in them. I think Bargnani does. I also think he is a difficult puzzle to solve and if he's ready to be solved, and if the new staff can help facilitate that, there is absolutely no reason for me to believe he cannot. All the tools are there.

By all the tools being there, do you mean to include his slow-wittedness?

I've never heard of this criticism before.....

If he's considered slow-witted, this is a pretty dumb team!

You need to read more of SJ's posts from today. He followed it up by summing him up as an airhead. I would just say he's slow to react, and that doesn't get fixed somehow in year 7.

Well AB definitely isnt a scrub. We just hate on him because of his defensive and rebounding abilities. I think this is the 1st time Ive actually seen BC talking about trading bargnani. Ill say its a good thing that trade talks within BC dont get leaked as media begin to make a huge deal about it and hurt team chemistry. But as all players should understand they do have a chance of being traded no matter what.

In this case I think this is the absolute straw for AB to show us what he has. Finally given a fresh start and a new coach with a new team outlook. If things dont go too well, I see him being dealt at the trade deadline of after the season
