Chisholm: Get Collison using some of the TPE

Quote:
DARREN COLLISON

I'm becoming something of a parody of myself with my affection for this jitterbug point guard from New Orleans, but he's a perfect fit for the Raptors present and future and because he plays behind Chris Paul he isn't an untradeable commodity like he would be in just about every other NBA city. He is an outstanding playmaker (averaging 9.1 assists in 37 starts last season), he's a high-percentage shooter all the way out to the three-point line and his up-tempo playing style meshes perfectly with the athletic youth the team has acquired over the last year-and-a-half.

To get him, though, the Raptors will need to absorb one of the Hornets' onerous salaries, and figuring out which one is tricky. They would love to get out from under the four years they have committed to Emeka Okafor ($11.5-million this season), but that trade made a lot more sense before the Raptors drafted two young bigs at the end of June. It's unlikely that absorbing the two-years left on James Posey's contract (two-years, approx. $6.6-million per) alone would get it done, so the Raptors would probably have to sacrifice a young prospect to get the Hornets to bite on that trade, which Colangelo is likely unwilling to do.

That brings us to what might be the most sensical option, which is trading Marcus Banks, Reggie Evans and $7-million from the TPE for Peja Stojakovic and Collison. Banks and Evans both expire at season's end, just like Stojakovic does, but it gives the Hornets $7-million in relief today. It also gives the Hornets two smaller expiring contracts that might be easier to move in subsequent trades than Peja's massive $15-million pact. With the Hornets looking to sell the team right now, lessening that financial burden could be a big selling point for the team.
Chisholm: What should the Raptors do with trade assets?

I'd pick Ellis/Biedrins out of those three. Ellis is the best PG of the three and Biedrins' defence would be a great help if he can stay healthy.

We are not going to win a Championship. Just rebuild, no "scrambling" deals.

This guy is young and showed flashes of brilliance plus he has much more upside than Collison. He played just a few good games and everybodys talkin bout him like hes a basketball god.

Flynn would be a better fit for the future....

When you average around 18 and 9 in 37 starts in your rookie season, you're damn good. Collison is a much better player than Flynn

especially with guys like David West, Okafor, and Peja starting, what he did was amazing.
