"Inside Source": Baron Davis for Jose being discussed?

Makes no sense, but i thought i'd bring it up. I never trust people that say they have some source. Considering Davis is owed 41.8Mil over the next 3 seasons, this makes no sense whatsoever.

I have a source that is telling me the Raptors are looking into the possibility of doing a Calderon + TPE + Second Rounder for Baron Davis. I know this will probably be locked but there is about a 60% chance that I will be vindicated. Let the record stand.

I'd love to get Bledsoe off them. But that would never happen.

He's an all-star caliber point guard, you obviously look hard at a move like this.

I don't think Bledsoe is that good to take Baron's contract off their hands, although Calderon contract is pretty itself but there is still a 11-12 mil difference.

Although I think acquiring bad contracts + good young players with it is a good strategy IMO. The Raps aren't really re-building so why not take short-term contracts (2-3 years) that are bad and take young player/picks with it. I wouldn't mind it unless you are taking on like Arenas contract.

Huh, not even 10 hrs ago I suggested that the Raps should consider B. Diddy and fancy that. There's a brand new rumour. I said it before and I'll say it again, he would be fantastic for this team. He's the athletic PG they need Sure he lollygagged but he's with the Paper Clips...wouldn't you lose all motivation too?

I don't get these fake insiders who go on real gm. Do they not get bored of making stuff up? This isn't even a deal. It'll never happen in a million years. We're looking to stay young and get cap flexibility. We're not looking to get old and lose cap flexibility which is what this deal does.

Maybe they got the rumour from you..

I agree with those who think this would not be a good idea, and is inconsistent with what Colangelo has said he is looking to do, which is to get younger and maintain salary cap flexibility to build the team around the new core. He was also clearly against tying up too much money in one "star" player. Davis makes only $2-3 million per year less than Bosh does with Miami.

Are you really going to tell me you'd turn away 15 and 8 (unmotivated with situation)? He can go off at any given time. He would be a good mentor for DeMar and JJ. He knows how to blow by people with ease. Not sure how to attach a picture but check this link out. http://www.loudsportsshorts.com/bask...aron_davis.jpg

baron davis is an all star caliber point guard who in the right situation can play equal to the likes of cp3. his contracts for 3 years so why not. i see it as a very low chance of landing either melo or cp3 cause of new york rumour and the fact that we r toronto. players would rather play in new york than in toronto cause they dont wanna "ride polar bears to work". i say take this deal and run. he is the vet/stud point guard we've been looking for to train DD and with this leader at point, BARGZ WILL DEVELOP INTO ALL STAR CALIBER IN MAXIMUM 2 YEARS. with the likes of his passing, bargz could go 23 ppg if not more. if this deal is done, all bow to colangelo, god of basketball..

He's a stronger, faster version of Jarret Jack. I don't mind this pickup.

If we could have gotten Chandler in some other deal, we'd probably be in the playoffs with:

Davis/Dero/Weems/Bargs/Chandler
