ESPN Chat Wrap - Raptors and Jose Talk

Chad Ford answers some questions and starts some rumours.

But there are some teams like the Knicks, Blazers, Raptors and Pacers who seem to be out there talking to folks pretty aggressively.

Nick (Toronto): Chad, we've had enough talk about the NBA Finals -- they have chats for eight hours. Let's talk draft! Any idea whom the Raptors might take? You still think Greene?

SportsNation Chad Ford: (5:34 PM ET ) Donte Greene, Robin Lopez ... maybe Ty Lawson if they trade T.J. Ford.

Lou (Deptford, NJ): C'mon Chad what's up with the Sixers? We have all this cap room ... they have to be planning something ...

SportsNation Chad Ford: (5:36 PM ET ) I keep hearing that the guy they're targeting is Jose Calderon. That's a bit of a surprise ... but if they land Calderon, then they can turn around and move Andre Miller.

Ron Keron (Ceuta): What will happen with calderon, is there a price that cannot be matched by toronto?

SportsNation Chad Ford: (5:45 PM ET ) They say they'll match any offer ... but if Philly offered $10 million a year ... that would be tough to swallow.

Trade him i would imagine. If they "upgrade" the PG position then they can trade Miller and upgrade somewhere else?

You cant read into anything Chad Ford says. The dude just consistently comes up with rumours to spike interest in his own columns/chats/mocks.

You'll recall, I'm sure, that Chad Ford advocated Darko over Lebron James.

And Lawson at 17? Really Chad? The earliest I've heard him going is 20 to Denver, who need a point guard, and apperantly even they are backing off.

But yeah, use a top 20 pick on a very limited player playing the same position we're about to drop $40 million on? Sounds savvy to me.
