Default Predict the offseason

Now that this deal has finally gone through, I am curious as to what everyone thinks might now happen in the offseason.

I personally think that the Raps will draft a wing and sign Marion, Delfino and Rasho.

Hopefully they draft James Harden(if we can), then sign Marvin Williams or Odom or Marion(lasst choice depnding on how he plays), then we sign Rasho, Parker, and if we have enough money, Delfino

I want to see what happens in the next 6 days first. We're not done. Don't be surprised if Anthony Parker has played his last game as a Raptor.

I think him or Kapono is gone next week along with a throw in (Will Solomon or /Banks & Cash). I highly doubt BC is done.

I think Raps are going to have to go into the Tax threshold and get BOTH a SF and SG (e.g. Odom and Rip) + try to make the bench a little deeper. I don't see how this team is going to get dramatically better without going over the tax threshold.

Guys guys. We're in great shape for the 2011 sweepstakes.
I would like Marvin Williams, or Odom (Not a max deal for Odom)
Let Marion go for sure..
The draft, we'll be drafting a nice wing. Delfino will be here. Triano will still be part of our staff and a new coach will be here. Things look nice.

Rip has signed an extension, only way to get his is in a trade.

Odoms natural position is PF, he only plays well when at that position.

Ariza and Delfino would be nice additions.

I would go for butler. The wizards are paying through their nose and might be looking to unload salaries. We could use our 2009 pick + cap space to get butler.

Re sign Marion and Graham but not for over $10 mil/$4 mil a year respectively
Ron Artest is also a possibility if Marion's asking price is higher

Let Voskuhl, Solomon and Parker go, plus Garbajosa's $4.4 mil comes off the books

Try to trade Banks, Kapono

sign Delfino, Wilcox.

get Nash, if he opts out. I'm not holding out much hope but with PHX crumbling who knows

Trade Calderon to Portland, Minnesota, Sac Town, GS or Dallas

draft a SG

new coach Mike Budenholzer

lol. yeah, don't re-sign Kap, he lost the 3-pt Challenge last night. proving he's not the 3pt. threat he used to be heheh.

I'm pretty much in concordance with everyone. I hope we draft the best and right guy. I had been saying for some time that we should bring Deflino back, but has he improved his game playing for Russia?

Superjudge, I want #24 just as badly as you do (and here we were having that thread of trying to get VC back..) 2 problems: i) no one really wants to come to T.O. ii) won't we need to get rid of several guys in the roster to afford his asking price?

I honestly can't envision Kobe wanting to play in Toronto. The whole "world domination for his ego" theory aside, he'll likely remain in L.A.
That being said: If MLSE thought they had a shot at him I bet they'd be willing to go over the cap just for the bragging rights and publicity alone.

Fixed.
You can't fire Triano silly, He is an Interm Coach, can't fire those.

Trade Bosh plus Kapono and Solomon for:
1) Coran Butler and Nick Young and Wizards Draft pick
2) Jeff Green and Durant (?) or their Draft pick
3) Rip, Prince and I dunno. Herrman?
