Default ESPN: Move or keep Bargs?

Quote:
Move him or keep him: Andrea Bargnani.

Hall: Move him. Bargnani and Toronto GM Bryan Colangelo seem to be in agreement that a change of scenery would do them both well. I'm sure Raptors fans agree. After more than 400 games with the same franchise, the only surprise involving Bargnani will be whether the Raptors can find a team willing to take on his brutal contract.

Herbert: Move him. It's been six and a half years of ups and downs and it's time for the former No. 1 overall pick to get a fresh start on a team where being the former No. 1 overall pick doesn't matter. The Raptors are creating a new identity and it makes sense to move on.

Wade: Move him. His market value is nil, but now is the time to alter the makeup of the team. The young bigs need to get all the reps on this resurgent team, and the last thing Toronto needs is Bargnani mucking up possessions that could be better used by Rudy Gay and a cast of intriguing perimeter players.

Wallace: Move him. He simply no longer fits into the Raptors' more athletic-oriented attack. Yes, the team is starving for a shooter who can stretch the floor. But Bargnani's time seems to have run out in the T-Dot. The question is whether the Raptors can fetch enough in return for a diminished Bargnani.

Weidie: Move him. But I don't know what expectations Toronto has for return value. Raps fans are desperate for better times, even after trading for Rudy Gay. Nonetheless, they are likely stuck with the 2006 No. 1 pick they gave $50 million to in 2009.

Bargs is the only player the panel members all agreed on moving. BC and AB are both indicating they're ready to part ways. Can we get anything of substance in return, though?

I'm not sure what we'll get for him right now, firstly because everyone knows we're shopping him aggressively, which makes it a buyer's market; secondly, because his defensive and rebounding deficiencies are glaring (though they could be mitigated somewhat in the right system with the right pairings).

Hopefully, he'll shoot the lights out for a few games to pump his value up. Though, right now, I think moving him would most likely require us taking back a bad contract or two from another team.

Move or trade Bargs?

Not seeing much of an option here...

Haha, long day man, messed that up. Or, maybe, a Freudian slip on my part.
