Default Ford: Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan on the trade block

Quote:
The Raptors have been trying to find new homes for both Gay and DeRozan in an attempt to move into the top five on the Tank Rank. GM Masai Ujiri knows this teamís chances of making the playoffs are slim and they need to cut payroll, but the market for players like Gay and DeRozan isnít what it used to be.

Ujiri will learn quickly what BC found out.............it won't be easy to build a contender or consistent winner here.

He might be too good to stay. Wouldn't be suprised if the whole starting line up ends up getting traded, aside from JV.

Especially when he has to write a tanking article without any new news. So we didnt do anything all summer but we change our mind now? Ya ok... really beleivable. The only rhing that makes any sense is putting out feelers so he knows where he stands in 20-40 games if required.

I don't doubt that value is being gauged across the board.

I doubt Chad Ford knows what he's talking about because he mentions we need to reduce payroll, when in actual fact ownership has been pushing management to buy talent. they are not concerned about the bills.

sure, it's only right they would look at every option... but IMO Masai will only make a deal to improve the roster. He must build value with the current players. I doubt he sells low. Masai sounded very impressed with demar right now. It sounded genuine too. It's about fit with this roster. They will evaluate, make some changes if needed... then go out and spend to add additional talent when it becomes available. I'd say Philly has 2 or 3 players you could go and add without breaking the bank or spending our future.
