Do you think Raptors will sign someone today? Or we'll wait and see what happens?

If they do, we likely won't hear about it until tomorrow morning at some point. But I could be wrong. I think we'll know what's happening with Marion very soon at least.

Do you think AP / Delfino will take some days?

I really think that if Carlos is intelligent enough he'd wait to see what happens if some teams (like the Bulls) lose their SGs
AP has a lot of options BTW

So you think that around the league the quicker signees are only for tomorrow?

It's a crapshoot rod ... I mean, when Kapono signed with us a couple years ago it was a midnight announcement. I also recall the CV for Ford trade that happened in the wee hours of the morning on July 1st a couple seasons ago too.

So, ya never know.

I think that by the end of the day wednesday, we'll know what's going to happen with Marion/AP and i think that if Marion isn't signed or S&T we'll sign Hedo by thursday.BC i don't think will wait long to get things done. Chances are by the end of the week we'll know what our team will look like next season.

Colangelo seems like a guy that zero's in on a player or two and gets something done quickly.

He said last week that he had 4 possible plans going into July 1st. Well in 45 minutes Plan 1 begins.

If there are as few buyers as we believe there are, there may be a lot more haggling to take advantage of the market, so deals might take longer. Or the opposite will happen. I have no idea.

I personally would not expect BC to be resting on his laurels regardless.

Hedo chances are getting every moment greater...
Portland can't offer the same money we could

I say it's 50/50 (Marion/Turkoglu)

Meh ... I want Marion so much more than I do Hedo. We need defense and rebounding alot more than we need Hedo's offense. JMO

I think another big trade would follow if BC gets Hedo.

I agree, ultimately i'd much rather see us keep Marion. But if he decides to not stay and a decent S&T can't be made then Hedo's a good option imo.

I think either Bosh or Bargnani would get traded... for a big inside C with rebounding and defence. Cause Hedo/Bosh/Bargs would look pretty bad in rebounding for the frontcourt. JMO.

If you're reffering to Bosh, i wish. But i doubt it, unless BC is blown away with an offer. But that's highly doubtful.
