Agreed. He can score but that's it, he's almost 30 now, and his contract is way too big. He is a salary cap albatross.

that's why talk out of the bay was that they'd have to bundle randolph and or wright, etc. just to get a team to take him.

i'm not a maggette fan but if we could swing a kapono+parker/humphries deal for he and bellinelli/randolph/wright, that's a deal that works for us, especially if we can hold on to parker's expiring. even if parker's part of the deal, as long a jk going the other way, the salary implications aren't as bad, at least not for the next 3 years. add to that a hope that Bargnani and our pick wouldn't be included... it works for us. and given what could be a mess of monster deals to be handed out in 2010, corey's contract may not be so bad.

edit.
just saw the hughes thing and went a played with the trade machine. how's this:
to GSW: Parker+Kapono
to Chicago: Maggette+Humphries (maybe they should send out picks?)
to Toronto: Hughes+Bellineli

I've been checking the deals made every day. I just don't feel that the Raptors are going to break the surface without it.

After signing our new guy, think that we are over the cap, so a minor trade should be done to put us under it.

Happy new year, here is going to be now.

As opposed to what we have now? Please, we'd be lucky to get Maggette with what we're attempting to trade!

the longer bc waits, the steeper the return to respectability.

i dont trust bc with a #1 pick anymore. he might use it on rubio (if he's entering)

the players and fans know a change is needed... but i think bc is worried about being perceived as panicking. well i think we're at that stage now. fans watching games know the raps will lose, it's just a matter of by how many points.

If we get the number one pick, it should be traded for a big name. No point in drafting a rook at this point. WE should do what the Celts did
