Took me a sec, but I realize this just means we want to get in on the action with our TPE. Not to get Melo, but to get something else.

Ujiri has his eyes set on Alabi.

Yeah, this would have to be in a role as facilitator.

There's no way, that after losing Bosh for only a TPE, that the Raptors would give up a LOT of assets to get Camelo as a half-year rental when we're not even competing.

I'd love to see the Raps get involved, and get back some assets.

Teams need to worry about their own business but having Ujiri there can't hurt as an inside track.

Well in the rumour earlier this week Cleveland was the third team and they would get Murphy and a 1st round pick or 2 for their TPE. Maybe that's what we're trying to do or something similar.

Hmmmm..

Denver- Favors, Jose, Peja, Outlaw and 3 1sts(2 from NJ, 1 from T.O via Miami)
NJ - Melo and Billups
Toronto- Harris, Petro and Murphy

NJ new starting 5:

Billups
Morrow
Melo
Hump
Lopez

I doubt we get Devin Harris, Petro and Murphy expiring contract for Jose and a late first round pick.


Melo-Billups-Lopez is a good team, a playoff team, but they still can't do any real damage in the playoffs with that roster. I'm gunna go out on a limb here and say Melo's current team with Denver is better.

Actually it's Jose, Peja, 1st

Really the only player we'd be getting back worth anything is Harris. Murphy is an expiring and Petro is a throw in. You're right we might have to throw something else in there.

maybe throw in weems to sweeten the deal? i would really like to see harris here with bayless backing him up. that way we can sign barnes as a rook with our pick and not some "ok" point guard because honestly i dont think we can get irving at the rate our wins are going at.

Offer for melo? Hell yes. Its a win-win situation to get Melo, if he resigns then great, if not then its ok .. its worth a shot though.

There are 29 other teams Melo will sign with before Toronto.

We talk a lot about tanking, but can BC really stand to see his team sucking game after game? We're not getting Melo of course, but he could be looking to make a splash somewhere.

For some reason i'm getting the feeling he's gonna try and get Harris in the Melo deal and ship Jose to his buddy Ujiri.

He certainly isn't a great shooter. But he's aggressive, quick and is a slight upgrade on defense. He's averaging 17/7 this season and gets to the line 6 times per game. He's certainly an upgrade as an offensive PG and he can also distribute the ball.

Harris is owed 2yrs/17.8Mil after this season.

Somebody over here said that trading for Carmelo wouldn't improve the team...
So I posted this video real quick and laughed at them.
