Default Has Parker Been Added To The "Guys You Can't Deal" List?

Well Doug apparently thinks so. With AP's recent emergence, if we stand any chance in making the playoffs we most certainly will need a guy like Parker down the stretch.

If these guys harbour any hopes of making the playoffs Ė and I think thatís a legitimate hope for the rest of this season Ė I think you have to put AP on the list with Jose, Bosh and Bargnani of guys they canít deal.

And that, of course, diminishes the chances of any trade significantly since I donít think teams are lining up to make serious offers of good players for guys like Jamario, Joey and Jason.

Whatís that leave? JO as the only one who could be moved for someone, or a package, that could help.

I heard that AP has been playing much better as of late. I hope we keep him ... I want to keep wearing my AP jersey.

I think BC should be willing to trade everyone except calde, Bosh and bargs. That said, the guys I would keep would be Calde, bosh, bargs, parker, roko and joey. Oh and jawal just because Im curious of his talents and I have sympathy for him.

I wouldn't have said anything after the bolded part. For me, if the right deal is there, you have to be willing to do it.

That doesn't mean trading everyone..... but nobody should be untouchable if you can better your prospects by dealing them.

Unless Colangelo gets a sweetheart deal for AP, we should keep him around - extend him for another 2 years if possible. Every team needs a guy like AP. He's a jack of all trades on the court, has a wealth of experience and he's still a very good player.

I agree that if the right deal appears anyone should be traded. But all those three are only going to improve their game so I think its difficult to get something good for the future for them.

AP would be a great role player on any great team in the league.

But obviously hes tradeable especially if we're getting a building block back.

If Raptors plans to postpone the fishing getaway later than end of regular season, keeping AP is a good idea. He usually picks it up in the second part of the season and he plays much better by the end of season. Even if we bring a high quality SF, still AP can cover SG position.

Andrea, Chris, <good SF or Marion >, Anthony, Jose looks like a good starting line
