Chisholm: Raptors don't NEED to make a major trade
 
Quote:

In the fifteen-year history of the Toronto Raptors, I can honestly say that this is the first time I can remember them ever not NEEDING a trade going into the deadline.
Quote:

Let's not kid ourselves, keeping Bosh happy is the only NEED in Raptorland until he either re-signs or leaves this summer. While he'd no doubt welcome a move that puts the Raptors into the class of Cleveland, Orlando, Atlanta and Boston, if that move actually set the team back it isn't like he'd feel obligated to stick around to clean up the mess. That being the case, the club better be certain that any trade they pull off will only improve their fortunes, because the alternative could be disastrous.

I would love to see at least a minor addition of a defensive wing, maybe a vet.

VanCity 02-15-2010 06:17 PM

meh...we could use a defensive wing player...

Dark Knight 02-15-2010 06:18 PM

Let's pay Bruce Bowen to come out of retirement...

Kirby 02-15-2010 06:19 PM

Bruce Bowen is ass now.

In the fifteen-year history of the Toronto Raptors, I mean in the 8 and a half months I follow this franchise I can honestly say that this is the first time I can remember ever completely agreeing with Chisholm. :D ;)

For 10 minutes per off the bench in the playoffs....sure. Experience is needed in the playoffs.

myklue 02-15-2010 06:21 PM

i'd like to see a trade...i feel all these teams are getting good acqusitions and they are getting better while we're staying the same...id like to see a good trade and not a disatrous one...

I like to see our team stay pat. Lets see what our guys can do in the playoffs. We have depth and we have chemistry. After the season is over BC and his staff can tweak the roster if need be even if it means trading Jose to upgrade our team. But for now lets see what this team can do in the playoffs.

getting evans back is like making a move without giving anything up

Raptors Digest 02-15-2010 09:51 PM

We need to do something to put us over the top with top playoff contenders are looking to muscle up before deadline

0nekhmer 02-15-2010 10:01 PM

Well, if we keep playing this way towards the end of the season, I think we're pretty set. Especially if Hedo starts to become consistent.

neojiphre 02-15-2010 11:12 PM

If it ain't broken, don't break it.

or

Let's just play safe than risk now.

Gurk 02-15-2010 11:20 PM

I think it is If it ain't broken don't fix it

Exactly and I did mention before getting Reggie back they must play better defense and then you add a full game Reggie he's going to help a lot; he only came in for 5min and that 5min was havoc already + he's going to another type of leader that we have been waiting for to tell the guy to do what and etc.

If we get consistency from Bosh(he's already consistence enough and I hope that's not all to his potential), Barg(He need to get his 3 point shot back at 100%), Hedo(hope that he finally awake but so far so good), Wright(he's getting there and the sooner the better), Beli(Wow if he can stay 100% constantly he should be starting over Jack or Jose), Jose(If he can get his points from the bench and assisting the alley loop to our young guns the same time then I don't mind him staying here) , Demar+Sonny+Amir(Like I mention Jose is the key factor to our young guns); if all that I mention above happens and they improve before the playoff then other team should not think likely of us because will be consider a deadly team. Also I think Demar+Sonny should be our real Twin Tower that never worked out with Bosh and Jermaine
