Plan B.....Turkoglu?

if we try to get this guy, he's certainly going to ask a bit more than how much Marion wants. but I'm hoping Marion would re-sign, he's the kind of guy we need for defensive purposes.

As Spock would say. "Highly Illogical".

Utilize what money. He doesn't have any. Even with Marion out he's still over the limit for signing free agents.

i don't ever wan't turkoglu. i think marion will resign, remember the day of the drafta nd the day before everyone was saying how were gonna pick johnson or holiday. but, before that everyone had a lock on derozan. well we ended up picking derozan. same with marion everyone was starting to figure he's gonna resign and now a day before it's looking like s&t. Marion is resigning with the Raptors.

bryan:About “four or five” teams have expressed some interest in exploring sign and trades if there’s no deal to be done here.

i personally don't think marion really wants to be back in TO
he just knows that TO is 1 of the few teams with the available money to give him at least a half decent contract
if he knew like half the league had money for him, he'd already have come out and said bye to TO

I'm in the "fuck Turkoglu" bandwagon. Dudes like a smaller version of Bargnani. The one thing really special about Bargnani is that hes 7 feet....

why would he? We're not likely to be elite, he doesn't feel connected to a city where he played for two months, there's nothing attractive about being here other than money.

if it's a test of common sense I'm pretty sure I would
a hard core test probably not ...

Ok WTF is going on??

12hrs into the FA period and nothing at all. If Marion wanted to be here something would be done by now. On the other hand with Detroit all over Gordon & CV and Portland kissing Hedo's ass, the only options Marion has is sign here or a S&T.

There's also alot likely being done behind the scenes jeff that we don't hear about. I mean all the talk so far regarding Hedo, CV and Gordon is all speculation too. There's a good chance that's nothing really in works for those guys right now either and that its all just rumours.

cap figures are coming out on the 8th I think
its moving slower this year b/c there are less teams with cap space and the FA class ain't that hot

Well it's not a very strong FA class this time around, so I'm guessing the GMs are willing to take more time to explore all their possible options.

I don't like the sounds of this?

Quote:
Doug Smith

Bryan’s really trying to be creative”

I take that to mean if he’s not getting the right vibes for Marion and his people about the money or length of a new deal, he’s out trying to find some good fit for all concerned.

And I know Hedo Turkoglu seems destined to go to Portland but I also know the Raptors are giving it their best to see what they can do, either using Marion as a chip or in some other “creative” way.

Other than that, though, I don’t hear a lot of rumblings, which means we’ll all be surprised when something goes down, I just hope we get surprised by reading about it here first.

I have no doubt that things might move a bit more slowly this year than in previous years, money’s tight and I bet teams are waiting to see what kind of bargains are out there.

What I presume is going to happen – because it’s happened in the past here – is that we’ll get a call from someone who knows what’s going on telling us to call this or that agent and we’ll find out the Raptors have come to some agreement with some free agent.

What that’ll be is the big question.

And, sadly, I don’t have a list of names at the moment.
