Default Grange: BC Actively Working The Phones

Would be sad to see Parker moved, but if it has to be done to help our swingman issues sobeit. I just would of liked Parker staying and coming off the bench as a backup.

The Raptors are loath to part with him, not only because he's an elite perimeter shooter and willing defender, but also because he's a well-respected locker-room leader.

But because he's a veteran with a contract that will expire at the end of this season, the chances of Parker being around for another American Thanksgiving in Toronto are slim, and he and his family know it.

Kaps aint going anywhere because BC is smart ewnough to know that with proper plays, Kaps would be deadly feeding of JO Bosh and Bargs.

If it's not happening, it's not happening. Kapono is being some stupid sht and doing everything but shoot.

BC almost had Gerald Wallace, he can do it.

Yup, when used as a weapon in particular scenarios, Kaps can be pretty effective.

If AP and filler was moved for a slashing 2 guard, it would only help Kaps even more. He was very effective in Miami with Wade and Shaq drawing defenders allowing for Jason to set on the 3pt line.

In case you haven't noticed we don't have Wade getting into the lane breaking down the D or a Shaq like presence down low.

He's also is never left alone. He's followed closely to the corners by opposing teams.

He's not a good fit here. TJ was the only guy who seemed capable of setting him up. Maybe Roko will help.

I say trade parker
hes old, his contracts going to expire and most likely hes going to leave us for some good money in Europe.
I think we should put Kapono to better use and start him alongside Al Harrington
Trade Joey Hassan and Parker for Harrington
knicks save 10 miilion for next season and we still have cap space for 2010

Thats why a slashing 2guard is needed.

AP is all but done in the role we need him for.
If a slasher was at that 2 spot with Kaps off the bench at the 2 and 3 we would be pretty decent.

Bargs/Kaps/Moon and Joey could all sure up the 3spot with the new winger and Kaps at the 2.

Then look to draft a SG or bring in Belli as the backup.

You have GOT to be kidding. The guy took a pay cut to come play for the Raptors and has been a starting player on a playoff team and you think he'll go back to Europe? ...right...

Outlaw, he's a SG/SF, or as they say a 'hybrid' or 'tweener'

I said this weeks ago. Parker is a vet with an expiring contract and i doubt BC will want to re-sign him,especially if he keeps shitting the bed the way he has the first month of the season.I like AP but i think his time as a Raptor is coming to an end.I wish we could keep him for a backup role playing 20 minutes per night, but i doubt he would take that role rather then go to Europe for more money and be a starter.

If i had my way JK would be gone instead of AP or at least with him.

I keep hearing BC is going to go after Starbury to start at the two.
