Question Could Something Big Be Going Down?

Get ready fellas because its sound like something big is going down in Toronto this week according to Doug.

I'm not sure they've found Mr. Right at No. 17, everyone who'll be left is going to have some flaws and if they can package the choice with, say, T.J. I think they'd do it.

We already know they've kicked the tires on Boris Diaw and I imagine that's just the tip off the iceberg. For every report that gets out there, figure there's half a dozen others that general managers, coaches and agents are able to keep to themselves. It's up to the intrepid grunts to ferret out as many of those other ones as possible.

This week will include a lot of posturing, and some reports that are flat out wrong. But from what I'm told around the league, there's all sorts of serious discussions taking place.

Everyone figures Portland's trading out of No. 13 for the right deal but the word on the street is that there is no fit with Toronto at present. The Blazers aren't all that thrilled with the thought of Ford running their team and they are desperately seeking a point guard.

Hang on, kids, we're in for a bumpy week.

Also, check out this comments from Jim Kelly in today's Sun who alluding too lots of trade scenarios.

Maybe we have a lower salary area where these type of players (unsigned free agents) might fit in. But having all this in front of us over the next four or five days is going to be very helpful."

I think they'll pick or package the pick with Ford +? for a proven scorer or big man!I don't think they'll move up unless they can get into the top ten which is highly doubtful!

Maybe we'll see a package of Bargs and the pick + expiring for a swingman. New jersey for Jefferson? We can only hope.

I'm sure all the scenarios Bryan looking into likely will involve packaging that #17 pick.

I like Hassan Adams. I've always like his game when he was at 'Zona. I think he's be a good emergency PG/ backup 2 guard.

6'9" 245lb 4-man from NC State. Freshman. Strong and mobile. However, his game needs to be more refined. The scouting reports are saying the same thing for him as they said about Cedric Simmons a few years back.

I think they'll move up if they can land a player high on their board. That doesn't necessarily mean that they'll move into the top ten though.
