Default Raptors & Magic Trade Rumour

Take it for what its worth because it is coming from Hoopsworld, but interesting nevertheless.

What your take on it guys?

Fran might actually want to play in Toronto with Jose Calderon. The Raptors are not going to beat Detroit or Boston in a series as constructed… not saying a trade makes them that much better but for Toronto a small change wouldn't hurt.

Hmm, I certainly wouldn't mind getting rid of Juan or Joey.

Never heard of Fran Vasquez.
J.J Reddick would be an awesome addition... with his shooting abilities.
Arroyo? Not worth it. Dickau over him anyday.
Garrity? hes considering retiring... so no way... and we dont have cap issues.

fran vazquez will only come if he can play good minutes though, he didnt go to orlando when he got drafted because he wasnt going to get decent time playing.

Why would they trade their backup PG and an expiring deal for 2 scrubs they dont need? Reddick>Dixon at shooting, and expiring deal>Joey. Not to mention they NEED a point guard, a starting one preferably, and why would they trade with a rival? This is so made up.

a rival... why not.
both teams are struggling right now...so feed of, of eachother.
Reddick for Dixon - id do it anyday. Not comparing Reddick to Kapono here... Reddick or dixon? you choose.
Arroyo/Garrity for Graham- both expiring contracts and arroyo wud help us at point or garrity cud just cheer lead and bring "leadership". More spending cash next year.
* trading joey may come back to haunt us... but who gives, doesnt flow in a Raptors uniform.

Orlando would get bench help in return.
What theyyy desperately need.

Ofcourse this is just another rumor.
But its better then your guys,
Bargnani+Nesterovic
Gasol+Navvaro
trades that have little to no possibility.

This is not a trade rumour. It's not even a trade rumor. It's not even a Fleetwood Mac album. It's a guy saying that Orlando could use Juan and Joey, and that somehow we could use JJ and Arroyo, and somehow buyout Fran. That might be interesting, but it exists solely in someone's brain. I just wanted to make that clear.

OK - so I killed the thread. Whaddya expect?

First... Kapono is a serious upgrade over Redick because he can play defense and can speak in fully constructed and grammatically correct sentences....

As for dealing either Graham or Dixon...i wouldn't have issues with either... now that we have Moon and know he's for real. Moon has made Joey expendable as much as I like the kid and wish he could have harnessed some consistant play in his time here.

Ditto for Dixon..good kid that can light up the scoreboard but too inconsistant.

There's no way Orlando does this. If we could get Vazquez's trade rights, I would do this in a HEARTBEAT. Unfortunately, No way the Magic does this. I'd do Arroyo too. He's a better scorer than Dixon and plays the point much better than Dixon. I'll pass on Reddick.

I had listened he didn't come because his girlfriend (who must be very hot) didn't want.

I don't like Fran Vazquez, I prefer Humps before him. IMO he is like Graham, maybe less smart .

Vazquez is a high risk/high reward guy because chances are he's not even coming over.

Playing in TO with Calderon would be something that *could* potentially entice him to come over, meaning if there's any fire to this smoke, it could be an interesting deal for us. Joey and Juan are kind of wasting away on our bench.

sadly, I think SWAN is right. Kapono is bad, but he's 6'8", and at least he can play team D. Reddick is simply awful. And tiny.
