convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

J.A.

Not that they're shopping Bosh, they just aren't rejecting trade offers outright as much as they were before.

Finally something from ESPN that sounds more realistic.

Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

Yep - that doesn't come off as pulling stuff out of a second-hand ass.

I think the Raptors are in heavy trade talks right now. Just my feeling. The draft is on June 25th... if a Bosh deal involved picks coming back, you'd want it to happen by the draft so you get the players you want. Also our trading partners would like to get things done early so they have the draft, free agency, and other trading to complete their team after getting Bosh. This is especially true for Miami

I'm inclined to believe there's some truth to that "psst... insider information... my friend chills with Kapono" post about Miami and Chicago dueling with Beasley/expirings/our 1st and Gordon/Tyrus/#16/#25 offers. Mainly because those are easily the 2 most viable destinations for Bosh, and those are basically the 2 best deals those teams can possibly offer with Rose and Wade are off the table

Looks like Bosh doesn't like TO. Hopefully we can get good value for him

think about it. if he doesnt commit to being here long term. he has to be traded. you cant base or build your team around a guy who cant say without a doubt, "i want to be here for the rest of my career and lead this team to better days"......wishy washy crap like,"we'll see when my contracts up"...that just doesnt cut it for a guy wanting a max contract and to be the #1 option/mvp.
