What? He's an insane upgrade over Gray (Grey?) that will be starting this year at Center.
Not needing JV playing 26-30 minutes a night will help him develop because we wont wear him down instantly.

Plus if all we're getting rid of is JC + filler, it's a no brainer even with the money involved.

The way I look at it is if we are going to put a bunch of money into Nash for 2 or 3 years, doing the same with Gasol makes sense. Does it make them contenders? Not likely, but it could provide Valanciunas with a big lift that helps him break out sooner, it could help DeRozan find his game, it could easily provide the kind of overall balance that would allow everyone to fill proper roles and excel accordingly. Which could mean the best results for any Raptor team. And if BC uses those 2 years to make the right trades, they could end up with that sort of stability extending well beyond the two years.

It might even make more sense if we can steal Lowry or Dragic. Or make some trade sooner rather than later. The key is having a well-balanced team overall with enough guys with high bbiq that the overall smarts of the team rises dramatically and a culture of hard work that is already being established meshes with a style of team play that can become ingrained - and boom - you've got something to build on for some time to come, and an image of competence that changes how Toronto is seen by the rest of the league.

They should do this trade as a 3-way with Memphis to get Rudy Gay. If the raps sign Nash and they amnesty Jose, he likely wouldn't last to the Lakers.

Gadol only makes sense a swap with andrea, otherwise it's not worth it.
