Default Raptors' Blueprint (off season rebuild)

I believe that the current roster has a significant level of individual talent but it's very clear that this team will never be successful, for obvious/numerous reasons which I don't feel like going over (beating a dead horse).

What I'd love to see BC do, this off season, is to try really hard to assemble a TEAM that is as close to the 2000-2001 Sacramento Kings. If I was BC I would post this poster in my office and study that team thoroughly, and then try to find those players which possess similar types of qualities.

Anyway, it's just my opinion. Your thoughts???

Don't we want the 2001-2002 Kings with Mike Bibby that finished with 60+ wins?

Yea, that would be nice too

Any of those Kings teams, from 2000-2003.

Definitely Webber pre-microfracture surgery.

webber was better in his prime... more defence and tougher inside. He also had great passing skills.

I like the blueprint, but we're missing a scorer like Peja... that guy was deadly.

and didn't they have a stud young guy hedo something on the bench? Wallace too I think...

Wallace didn't play big minutes in Sactown.

Pollard and Bobby Jackson were also solid for years off of the bench.

hey, as long as they can play tough D and make sensible plays on the offensive end I dont mind if we have 5 euros on the starting line up. Also must make sure they mesh with each other, chemistry is very important.

Our current Euros are lethargic to defense and take some really ill-advised shots, we need to fix that up. Also a head coach who can motivate his troops would be another plus.

One thing is for sure, whether Bosh stays or goes they need to figure out a way to get rid of Hedo and maybe Jose too. If Bosh stays we cant become a legit team with them eating so much cap - if we want to rebuild we need to dump them too.

I think Bosh is close to Webber's level, so we have a start there.

Now we need a defensive stopper like Doug Christie, a veteran guy who can knock down the 3... Shane Battier.

Next, a 3 pt shooting specialist, someone who can run off of screens well and catch and shoot. Aaron Afflalo.

Now we need an extremely good passing big man in the low post. Stays underneath the basket and is not a 7 ft SG project. Since we could probably do this for a Bargnani swap with a 2013 pick, lets say Bogut.

And for a flashy PG who can drive, push the pace, get out of traps etc. Let's say Jameer Nelson.

Nelson/Afflalo/Battier/Bosh/Bogut is the type of team we should surround Bosh with. Not a boatload of shitty European players. This is not even an expensive roster. Probably makes less than the starting unit we had all year with Bargs/Caldy/Turk.

That starting five would struggle to get 100 points IMO unless they had a 6th man like a Crawford or Jet!

I wouldnt go anywhere near Nelson. I really think Jack is starting material, especially when he doesnt have to distribute and score at the same time.
Afflalo is streaky as hell and we need a true starting SG if we're ever going to go deep in the playoffs.

Bogut and Battier would look great in raps jerseys but I cant see BC parting with Andrea, hes his pet project.

Losing out and missing the playoffs would be a good start. Get a lottery pick rather than no pick at all.

How about Sonny Weems? at 800k/year

Also, we don't need to score 120 ppg like the Raps do. As long as we score more points than the other team.

Given the likelihood of the Raps getting swept by Cleveland, I totally understand why some fans don't want to make the playoffs. However, Miami holds the rights to one of the Raps future 1st round drafts picks. The conditional pick is lottery protected. If the Raps don't make the playoffs, that willl just delay giving up the pick, and that will mess with future transactions. I'd like to make the playoffs and just give Miami that 1st rounder now.

Perhaps more importantly, I'd like to see some of the younger players get their feet wet by playing some playoff minutes. You can't simulate the playoff atmosphere. Even if the Raps get swept, it would be beneficial for Bargs, Weems, DD, Jack and Amir to see playoff action. It could speed up the maturation process and serve as a useful experience down the road. That is, of course, assuming a few of them are still with the Raps for future seasons.
