Raptors Plan On Preserving Cap Space For 2012
Dec 03, 2011 2:24 PM EST

At one point, the Raptors were one of the teams that was interested in pursuing Marc Gasol in free agency.

But according to ESPN's Marc Stein, Toronto is now preferring to preserve their cap space for 2012.

The Raptors would have to amnesty a player in order to create cap space.

Tyson Chandler was another big man that the Raptors initially planned on pursuing.

and then i get redirected back here in a few seconds.

Batum would be my top choice for a 3 on our team.

Unfortunately Portland is incredibly high on him, but he and Derozan would make a spectacular duo. That guys like a Scottie Pippen in the making...

Daaamnnnn good decision by the Raptor's front office. Who cares about Gasol and Chandler when these names are coming out next summer. Why spend money on a center for a year until Val comes. All these players have incredibly more value then them. Might aswell tank again with a cheap center. Should get a DeAndre Jordan or a Jeff Foster for a year.


Rose- no chance, hometown boy, would never pull a LeBron wouldn't think so.

Paul- no chance, NO wants maximum value via trade before summer.

D-will and Westbrook- incredibly low chance to grab but who knows?

Gordan, Mayo, Turner, Gallanari, Batum, Wallace,- All possible

Big men other than Dwight Howard and Bynum, we really don't need.

Chances are we don't get a HUGE name, but there should obviously be an attempt with cap space.

Tyson and Gasol would be easy to resist.

agreed donmughal

even going further down the list, george hill, nelson, augustin, douglas, would be good pieces for us.

same with the other positions, the lists go so far down you'd hope one would be possible and maybe even some bargain's out there, well under max-money.

Gerald Wallace will never come here, he's already said as much in the past.

that listed is filled with restrictions and options that will be picked up. why preserve money for players that won't be available. the only thing that looks both attractive and available are back-ups. the unfortunate thing about that is that they'd probably be starters with us.

Forget about free agency altogether, unless there is a particular player that obviously works with what is already here. This team needs to make a trade or two and get another draft pick or two, maybe make some slight upgrades here and there, change the culture as definitively as possible, and get rid of some deadwood.

Let's hope that at some point they can look at using capspace to keep some young stars around for some time to come, and firm things up by grabbing hold of the right role players and vets when they can. And of course that is not the immediate situation, nor what this team will face next season. Make some good trades and make use of the ability to bring back greater value than what goes out, as well as picking up more picks. Then we can look at maybe finding something worth spending on in free agency.
