would like mayo only we are able to shipout weems/peja/klezia, 2 of the 3, and if our 1st and miami's was included it would be baffling as mayo seems to unable to live up to his hype. offer them demare or someone else to level the deal but we should do whatever cost to keep our own 1st rounder.

and this guy also has some maturity issues, he basically pulled an arenas this year just without the guns, Raptors don't like to acquire guys like that
in my opinion, i'd only get him if we were giving away less
All true. That MEM extended Conley and drafted Henry are signs that they view Mayo as a mistake. He's only 6'4" which is undersized for a SG and that's why they drafted the 6'6" Henry, and they gave him a chance at PG last year but he looked brutal at it so they decided to extend Conley. He's not even in consideration as a combo G as MEM already has Vasquez and Allen as pretty good backups at both spots.

Basically Mayo is a slightly bigger Daniel Gibson or Eddie House, and he needs to be paired with a big PG so he can guard smaller guards.

As for Weems, he's on a tough spot as far as staying here is concerened. This should have been his time and his shot along with Demar, Davis, Bayless, Amir to show at least continuous improvement. He's a useful NBA player, but has not shown himself to be a definite keeper. If he wanted a great new contract, he's going to be out of luck. Even if he is not used as fodder in some trade, he'll have to end up having to sign on for a bag of Doritos and a Mounatin Dew.

OJ Mayo is a lazy bum. He chucks, doesn't work hard at either end of the floor and is no upgrade over DD. And I don't really like DD either so that should get my point across. I really don't see us taking on Mayo for anything.

DD is becoming more and more of chucker and he takes stupid shots, i think jose we should deal jose though because his stock is sky high right now and its only a matter of time before he gets injured again and were stuck with him again. Besides i want Bayless to get more minutes.

Like i said...AT THIS POINT. Who knows how Derozan will turnout, but at this point Mayo is a lot better imo.

and if demar is expected toget better at areas that he is terribly bad at then I would fully expect Mayo to get better as well. I think Mayo will always be a better player than Demar which is why I want Mayo on this team, although I would still like to keep Demar just use him as a sf.

Bayless
Mayo
Demar
Amir/Davis
Bargs.

Nice young lineup there. with more than enough speed to defend, and a nice balance of drivers, shooters in the lineup to score in both uptempo and a slower halfcourt game.

it's obvious we can deal peja, evans and wright because of their contract.
Amir has some value, like bergs and jose.
dorsey, weems, kleiza and alabi can go too.

so we stay with DD, davis, barbosa and bayless. if we rebuild i think it's better to rebuild around this four guys.
don't deal our first pick for nothing, and get after some nice piece like :
sf: wallace, iguy, pietrus, batum, T williams or battier.
pg: i don't know who can fit here.
pf: scola, varejuo, patterson, thompson
Center: lopez*2, pekovic, D. Jordan, mahimmi, pryebila, zaza


but i think BC will make some small move, and maybe add two youngs (one center and one pg) and a vet sf.

I wanted Mayo at the beginning, but now it seems like he would bring a lot of drama...like the stuff with his father or his attitude(plane brawl).

yup it seems to be affecting his game too, this guy was projected to be better as good as lebron growing up, most likely he won't reach that level but I would still take a shot at him, any deal that excludes derozan and Bargs would be a steal imo
