Thumbs up Koreen: Raptors Admit To Looking At Bargnani Trade Options

I hope this happens very soon (like this week) but I doubt it since teams probably want to see Bargs play a few games to see if he's fully healthy and what he brings post injury.

Quote:
Bryan Colangelo admitted on NBA TV that the Toronto Raptors are shooping Andrea Bargnani.

Colangelo has spoken with Bargnani's agent about possible moves.

"I'm not saying he's asked for a trade, but he certainly would not fight or resist a [new] situation," said Colangelo.
Via NBA TV (via Eric Koreen)

This is good to hear, I was worried BC would want to try this team out with Bargnani.

Just listened to another Interview of BC from this morning on the Fan

-He said there are a few teams that are sitting back and "monitoring" the return of Bargnani
-This team will be Buyers towards the deadline
- Ownership group is committed to spending dollars
- Raptors willing to take salary on
- The way things are right now, they are just over the tax
- He has full autonomy for all basketball decisions with the exception of exceeding the "spending plan" and/or changing the coach, however he always lets the board know of any major decisions
- Raptors are keeping track of refs screwing them this year, this is the 4th time
- BC said he ripped the refs himself on NBATV after
- He was Happy Dwayne ripped the refs after, could "see it coming, and has his back on that" lol

not saying we should absolutely keep AB, but if he comes back and meshes well with Gay and Lowry, and we start winning regularly, maybe he's better kept until the offseason....

Yet I heard BC on the fan this morning and he was talking about how we will see a "re-invigorated" Bargnani when he returns from injury.. smh

Wouldn't surprise me if BC has told him that he'd better play his azz off if he wants to get traded.

They've probably discussed it many times, they've got a better feel for what he's doing/feeling than any of us. I believe it. Hope they don't have him the focus of the offense and just let hiim get back to the versatile scorer he can be. This is only good. Would you rather hear he's given up, doesn't give a shit and wants to be sold for as little as possible so another team can get better value?
