Yes please :D

We might as well cut Acy at this point to be honest, there's no way he's anything in the NBA

MBailey85 11-16-2012 12:36 AM

I vote no! There's not much he can do for this roster. They're better off playing DeRozan at the 3 spot more,giving Ross more minutes at the 2

jeffb 11-16-2012 12:52 AM

Fields out probably at least a month, Anderson out up to 6 weeks. I say what the hell....


Lowry/Calderon
Derozan/Ross
Kleiza/Pietrus
Bargs/Davis
Valanciunas/Amir

We'd have to drop one of McGuire or Acy. My vote would be Acy...

Why the hell do teams even make second-round picks? They really have to make the D-league more of a farm system where rooks who aren't getting any time can be send down but not be on the 15-man roster.

He provides what the Raps need at the 3. He can defend, and although he's not a deadly outside shooter he can get hot.

Toby 11-16-2012 01:20 AM

Put Terrence Ross in the gosh darn game Canada

Dario 11-16-2012 01:36 AM

yeah... hows that gonna work.

box92 11-16-2012 01:51 AM

solution is to play ross at the 2 and demar at the 3

LKeet6 11-16-2012 03:23 AM

2 for 1 or 3 for 2 trade first then we have the roster space for pietrus!

Sure, but why sign Pietrus when your two-fer gets you Rudy Gay?

I'm pretty sure they can send Acy down right now if they wanted to, just that the roster isn't even full so they don't need to

I know you guys are joking. But why is there a general theme on this board about us trading for Gay? The guy is a beast, there's no chance.

I don't see the point in getting MP. It's just another short sighted move. LK is better anyway. If LK is healthy he should play starter mins for us.

there's been talk that memphis wants to shed his contract. It's a pretty huge contract and memphis are scheduled to be into the new, harsh luxruy tax next season.

but their new owner has now said they're keeping him, so yeah, looks like that trade is unlikely now.

I've come to this very sad conclusion, the Raptoes aren't getting Rudy Gay anytime soon.

FLO 11-16-2012 09:51 AM

Anything to avoid Ross getting minutes, I guess. It's not the Raptors if they aren't panic-signing mediocre vets.
