Default Bleacher Report?

is anybody reading the Raptors articles over on bleacherreport.com because they've been pretty good lately and it seems like the writers are constantly coming up with different ideas and articles to help pass the time when their is no Raptors news and it really keeps me amused.

Hell, I've even wrote a few articles on the Raptors and other stuff on their I think we should post an article every week from bleacherreport on here. keep this place from going completely dull seeing as everything is pretty much done and it could take a while to get defino, if we get him.

I'll start the trend by posting a link to an article from over there:

GBN: Say Hello To The Newest Raptor Radoslav Nesterovic | Bleacher Report

Thumbs up

Good read. I like the idea of bringing in Kleinas

"Unfortunately, I don't think we will be able to muster up enough to get him from the grasps of the Nuggets unless we trade for him or get rid of that nasty contract of Marcus Banks. His current salary is $1,824,493 so he is relatively cheap and could be acquired in a trade."

I had the same idea to possibly bring in Kleinas and posted it a couple days ago. Here is my original post:


Here's an interesting idea..don't know if it's do-able due to rules etc., but if it is it's a trade that would make sense to both teams.

A double sign and trade involving tha Raps and Nuggets.

Raps sign Delfino then trade to Denver in exchange for Kleinas (Denver first signs him then trades).

Both players if signed are expected to make roughly the same amount this year ($4-5 mil)

Denver lost Dahntay Jones(SG) and Anthony Carter(PG) is a free agent so they could use a versatile player like Delfino who can play both positions.

Toronto could use a player like Kleiza, he's got a decent 3 pt%(.342 career), is a slasher type player who can take it to the hole and can backup Hedo at SF or if needed play some 2 guard. Also Kleiza is known to be somewhat of tough player.

Toronto's lacking in 3pt shooting with the loss of Kapono and Parker-Kleinas could fill in, although he is a bit streaky...but who isn't? Denver lost a decent 3pt shooter and defensive minded player in Jones and so Delfino could fill in that role nicely.

Also to make the deal sweeter for the Nuggets the Raptors could offer them anyone of Douby, O'bryant, George, Ukic-take your pick (Granted salary cap rules allows the Nuggets to take an extra player).

This trade would satisfy both the needs of the Raptors and Nuggets.

Again I'm not sure if the rules would allow for a trade like this but if so IMHO this would be perfect for tha Raps AND Nuggets.

I would S&T Delfino for Kleiza.

Jose/Jack/Ukic
Wright/DD/Jack
Turkoglu/Kleiza/DD
Bosh/Evans/Pops?
Bargs/Rasho/POB


Very balanced lineup. Unfortunately i don't see this happening.

I wouldn't mind grabbing Carney to backup the three if the Delfino project fell through.

glad you guys liked the article. that was one of the ones i wrote.

i can't find rodney carney's salary as it's not listed. but, he's just coming off his rookie contract and was selected 16th overall. so, i think we could afford him. cause 16th picks don't make that much money.

I'm assuming he'd fall through the cracks and be available on the cheap, minimum salary range. Otherwise we probably wouldn't be able to afford him unless we freed up cap space, and I'm not sure if Carney's worth that much effort.

i don't know if the camera zoomed in a bit i think those panties are see-through.

plus, the belly button ring is a turn on it makes me draw attention from trying to think about what her boobs would look like if she put down her arms.
