Default Is this a possibility?

Was looking forward to a more exciting july first. It didn't work out as well as i hoped. I was hoping there'd be so much more happening with the raptors. So once again the Raptors dissapoint me. kk, Anyways since nothing is really happening i decided to post this. i was looking through the free agents and was hoping if the Raptors could end up looking like this?

Jose/WAFER*
DAHNTAY*/DELFINO*
MARION*/KLEIZA*
Bosh/Evans
Bargs/RASHO*

is this even possible? i would love to watch how this team would do next year. but do we have the cap space for it? And also tell me weather the signings of these people were even any good. I'm hoping the answers to these are all Yes's.

welcome to rf rap4lyfe.

it's possible to get a couple of those guys, but not all of them, unless they took large pay cuts to play with the raps. you're also forgetting that we have derozan, ukic, banks, hump and o'bryant...

and pretty much no one takes a pay cut to play with a team that was not in playoff contention the previous year...

well , my july first was good because i went and did stuff in real life. had some fire works, some sparklers, saw the hangover with some buddies. kicked everyone's ass in the new ufc game. the only thing missing was getting hammed(but, that wasn't neccesary. i still had a good canada day). i knew stuff wasn't going to happen and even if it did the information isn't going anywhere. so, i went and had a good time.


BTW, wanted to go stuff my face at the mandarin for free. but, didn't get too. did anyone go?

Wafer is definitely not a point guard. He's a 2 guard and we could use a slasher like him, but I wouldn't want to go near him. He comes off as a selfish player with too big of an ego for my liking.

If you even scratch out Kleiza, sigh Rasho for veteran minimum, MLE is not enough to cover both Dahntay and Von Wafer. Both had a good year and will have plenty offers. Besides one is offensive, other is defensive SG, neither is perfect

Raptors somewhat control Marions and Delfinos future so those are definite possibilities to get.

Wafer, Dahntay, Kleiza, Rasho would be pretty impossible to get. Unless BC can get one in a trade the best the Raptors can offer is the $6 mil MLE and almost every team has that to offer so they'd have to really like Toronto. At best we can hope is 1 or at most 2 of them sign with the Raptors.

renouncing Delfino will give more cap space
I heard it would give the Raps $12 mil to play with (if Marion/AP/Delfino aren't re signed)

Not really going to help if they sign Marion.

SIGNED PLAYER SALARIES 2009-2010 (7 of 13-15 players signed)
Chris Bosh $15,779,912 (player option for 2010-2011)
Jose Calderon $8,219,009 (signed through 2012-2013)
Reggie Evans $4,960,000 (signed through 2010-2011)
Andrea Bargnani $6,527,490 (qualifying offer for 2010-2011)
Marcus Banks $4,553,793 (signed through 2010-2011)
Kris Humphries $3,200,000 (player option for 2010-2011)
Roko Ukic $1,350,000 (player option for 2010-2011)
Demar Derozan 9th pick $2,282,640
Add Marion in at approx $8 Mil.

Total of $54,872,844 for 9 players

Cap will be around $58,680,000 (from 2008-09 season)

Cap space would be about $3.7mil

Signing Marion and the renouncing Delfino, etc would actually be a terrible move. If BC did that he'd lose the $6mil MLE for going under cap in exchange for just $3.7mil to use.

So he actually has more to spend on free agents by not renouncing players assuming Marion signs.
