Looking at the roster with Jack added, and especially if Delfino is brought in this team is beyond loaded at the guard positions, including 4PG (combimed 19+Mil/yr).

Jose/Jack/Ukic/Banks/Wright/DD/Douby/Delfino? + George

It seems to me a trade is highly likely. Who can be moved? Douby, Ukic, George, Wright?? 8 guards is way too much and even if Delfino doesn't come back, 7 guards is 1 too many especially with all that $$ commited to one position (PG). What can BC have up his sleeve?

IMO a minor move will happen this week or next with at least one of those guards to either bring in a SF off the bench or free up more cash to go after Barnes possibly.

too many bench players especially if he wants Rasho and Delfino

I think BC will trade some bench guys for a draft pick or a solid bench player

Ukic/Banks/George out

Jack will probably play 2 positions, so his salary is not 100% pg-committed if you're counting that.

It seems likely he would want to move a pg but somebody's got to want them. George and Wright are useful on the depth chart I think, especially if Delfino isn't signed.

Agreed

Lets do this then!

NBA Trade Machine - ESPN

How would this look?

Jose/Jack/Douby
2D/Wright/Jack/Turk<----if Pops is playing SF
Turk/Wright/2D/(Pops?<---only on defence)
Bosh/Evans/(Pops?)/(Nazr?)
AB/(Rasho?)/(Nazr?)


& I know Delfino isn't probably coming back, but add him to this list of players and we would be looking pretty good!

well, only if delfino comes back we're 'loaded' and thats not exactly a for sure right now.
nobody is going to take banks without getting something else...but i don't think packaging him up with douby/roko would be enticing enough to take on about 9M in salary

i would think only way to get rid of banks is buyout or trading a core player and packaging him...

other than banks, i think it the guards spots are fine as is...

Even with BC saying Wright and George were movable pieces I'm not so sure I see Wright being traded. In a package I can see a solid perimeter defender and a steady vet fetching something on the open market, but this team could really use Wright's defense off the bench, especially when we're going up against quicker 2s and 3s.

I can see Roko leaving. He's an interesting project in that he's 6'5" and he's quick, and I think teams might actually bite on him because they haven't seen everything we've seen.

We're not going to get jack squat for anyone at the end of our bench.

I can see someone being bought out or waived.

Raptors never had a press conference or never flew Wright and George to Toronto. Was there any interview of Wright and George about their thoughts about playing for Toronto. We had summer press conference with JO, and with the signings of Parker, Garbosa, and Kapono. I hope they keep Wright, but I see BC use these expring contracts as traid bait.

Colangelo said on the day of the Turkoglu presser that he was going to sit down with them over the next few days to discuss their possible roles with the team and where they stood. Since that was almost 2 weeks ago, i'm guessing that those conversations have taken place.

True!

But I hope he finds some way to keep Wright.

If there are any trades that are going to happen, it's not happening anytime soon. For those screaming to trade Banks, it ain't happening. If he gets moved, it's by way of a buyout. Or they could keep his contract and trade it next year when it's an expiring.
I'd love to hang onto Ukic. He's got a lot of untapped potential.

I'd like to keep George. He doesn't make a lot and he brings a lot of veteran presence to a young roster.

Ukic won't play thank god (untapped potential my ass), so he's expendable, Douby could be dealt, and George is very moveable. I agree with you about Banks and i'm guessing BC holds onto him until next summer and then buys him out of his last season or trades his exp. contract.

At 24, Roko's got good size and handles. The kid has game. He just needs to work a bit more on his shooting and needs a bit of confidence. Personally, I like the kid.

George is very movable, but the question is, why are you so quick to write the guy off? Who are you really going to replace him with? It's not like he makes 4-5 mil. His salary is very modest for what he could bring to this team.

The Raptors are committed to Jose/Jack for the next 4-5 yrs so it would seem? So Ukic imo will be moved soon enough. As for George, i'm guessing it would be more of a salary dump along with Douby perhaps. Either way, a move or two is coming imo. Minor....but it's coming.

I know it's only summer league but Roko's assist are lower than his turnovers so I would have to say that is a sign in it's self that he will be traded.

Roko is built on potential & like Joey Graham it's time to move on.

Trade him to cleveland LOL

Trade him anywhere that'll have him? I'm sure there aren't many.

I don't think Roko's being counted on to be a backup 1. Instead, he's probably being groomed to be a backup combo guard or 2-guard.

ANd like Joey Graham, it's time to move on? In all fairness, when has Roko really ever been given minutes and chances? Joey's been given countless oppourtunities and hasn't been able to do anything with it.
