Now what?
 
Our current roster as of right now (10 players) with 46Mil commited.

Bayless/Calderon
Derozan/Barboza
Kleiza/Johnson
Bargnani/Johnson/Davis
?/Alabi

So it looks like we certainly have to add 3-4 players. What do you think will happen? Beyond an obvious need a Center i just think another wing defender is needed.

One player that isn't mentioned too often in this free agency class is Deshawn Stevenson. I'd love to see him in a Raptor uniform. He can bring solid defence and 3 point shooting at the wing.

Anyone willing to give TJ Ford another try at the right price?

DeAndre Jordan?

A center on a short term deal, a defensive wing player. No TJ Ford.

He's back. Still has one season left on his contract.

I'd be really happy if we could add some like Jeff Foster on a 3-4 year deal for cheap, and have him play decent minutes now, and then have him take on a mentoring role (and fade into the background a little more when JV gets here), and then add a few min players to fill out the roster.

+1 Also like Jeff Foster. He would be a good vet to have on this team. He has a reputation as a "dirty player", so he can add some toughness to this squad.

I would dance for joy if we ever pulled that off.... I doubt the Clips will let him go though (unless they HAVE to).

What's their cap situation like? The Clips and MEM are 2 teams that could possibly get hurt in this FA period... I think that both teams are pretty near the cap as is and both have to worry about re-signing some big pieces.

no idea, but I believe Kaman is back now, so he will come off the bench, We could give him a chance to start for the next 2-3 years and Jonas develops

Clippers have 44Mil committed to 11 players.

Memphis has 37Mil committed and 26Mil next year.

Claudius 11-26-2011 02:04 PM

I dunno, I think you roll with Alabi and keep Bargnani as a quick back up/replacement. We need to see what we have there.

We need a 3 in the worst way though.

46Mil to 10 players.

Don Vito 11-26-2011 02:28 PM

You're delusional if you think Kleiza is going to start right off the bat.:roflmao:

Metallikid 11-26-2011 03:54 PM

I'm with Claudius 100%; If we could sign Thaddeus Young I think he'd be a perfect fit to replace Weems in the Young Gunz.

Claudius 11-26-2011 04:02 PM

If that Thad Young is a FA, I'd make a strong, strong push for him.

Would be great,but I think he's restricted.

What's Wilson Chandler's contract like in China?
