Default BC: Everyone But Bosh Expendable?

Hmm .... it would appear as though that BC would considering dealing anyone on this team right now besides Chris. Interesting.

The Raptors had lost five successive games, for a 10-17 record, before last night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

"[The team's struggles] haven't altered my opinion on the quality of the talent we have," Colangelo said in an interview. "But the chemistry we have and the production we've gotten is the part that has me open to changes. It can be minor tweaks or something more dramatic."

Colangelo wouldn't specify the moves under consideration "If I'm playing poker, why would I show my cards?" but it's believed he's considering all options, except trading star forward Chris Bosh. At this point, frustrated Raptors fans might look at Bosh's dismal December performance and ask: Why stop there?

"There are all kinds of scenarios," said Colangelo, who flew to Los Angeles to meet the Raptors. "And maybe there's more urgency because of where we are right now. Maybe it can be righted by playing through it, and if we can, there's a lot of time left this season. If there's a trade that can right things, maybe it happens sooner because there would still be a lot of time to adjust after the trade."

Colangelo issued a note of caution. "This is not a fantasy league," he said. "Trades can only happen when and if they present themselves."

Not all that surprising though. Collangelo has always been a "keep all the doors open" type of Gm.

Really isn't news. If the Clips were at full strength, we would have gotten rocked last night. I don't expect this road-trip to get any better. You gotta be open for anything and everything.. and that SHOULD include Bosh.

I can only assume that comment was directed right at the idiotheads on messageboards that constantly offer trade idea's.

And those in the media.

I didn't read anything in that article on who's expendable and who's untouchable. It's just more useless question and answer with the media.

SJ this trade lets us get Nash with the players we have left after doing the other trades.

Starting line-up
PG:Nash
SG:Kobe
SF:Bron
PF:Bosh
C:Howard

We'll also have Voshkul to back-up at all positions
