Arrow Chisholm: Deadline deals the Raptors should consider

Quote:
O.J. Mayo - Memphis Grizzlies

It is no secret that Mayo has worn out his welcome in Memphis. While he was a very solid starter in his first two years with the club, this year has been a wreck. He's been benched, gotten into an altercation with teammate Tony Allen, gotten suspended for using a banned substance and rumors have started to circulate that he's had numerous clashes with the coaching staff during his two-and-a-half year tenure with the club. Given all of this negativity, why would the Raptors have any interest in Mayo at this point?

Well, first, he's still only 23-years-old, he plays a position of need for the Raptors and his contract expires at the end of next season, so if he doesn't mesh with what the club has already assembled he can simply be let go.

Quote:
DO NOT PURSUE

Aaron Brooks - Houston Rockets

It would seem counter-intuitive to say the Raptors should pursue Jonny Flynn, basically a low-rent version of Brooks, and not Brooks himself this winter, but that isn't necessarily true. Flynn still has two more years on his rookie deal to play with before the Raptors would have to make any kind of longterm decision with regards to him, whereas Brooks is a free agent this summer. The Raptors have worked hard to open up cap space this summer, and having to consider spending it on Brooks (whom they would probably not consider spending it on were he merely someone else's free agent this summer) takes attention away from better-suited pursuits. Sure, Brooks at $2-million is great. Having to re-sign him for $5-$6-million - not so much. He may be a name that attracts some interest this month, but it's not likely to come from the Raptors.

They didn't even mention the arrest of Mayo's father for attempted murder. Man, the kid has had one hell of a tough season. HALF-season actually.

Position of need? I'd take Mayo in a heartbeat but I don't think the SG position is exactly a position of need at this point.

Meh, the 2 & 4 positions are ok imo. At least moreso then the PG, SF, C positions. I'd still take Mayo though.

i was very interested in this:

Quote:
Avery Bradley - Boston Celtics

The Raptors were hot after Bradley in the draft, though their interest may have cooled since acquiring Bayless. Still, Boston may be in the market for some inexpensive help at the small forward spot with Marquis Daniels going down, and Sonny Weems or Julian Wright may be enough to pry Bradley loose if the Raptors still want him.

The two biggest steps this franchise should make to move forward-1. Fire Triano and 2. trade Bargnani.

1. Two straight years, bottom in the league in defensive effiency. The man doesn't get results. His biggest goal every year is to improve the defense which he has definelty failed big-time every year. Hire Mike Brown.

2. Trade Bargnani. A hard-nosed coach or a player coach could never get the commitment out of Bargnani to play defense or rebound. He will walls be big defensive liability no matter what coach we have and what players we surround him. If we need to change the culture of this team, change its leader and get rid of the big apple ruining the whole bucket.

Couldn't agree more. Add a jose trade and I'd probably blow a load.

yes, let's trade everyone when they are struggling, and eventually we will be in Seattle, St Louis or Las Vegas.... yay!
