Default The Raptors Should Get Wallace or Jackson. Now.

Word on the street is that Jordan is tired of how terrible the Bobcats are and wants to blow the thing up:

http://nba-facts-and-rumors.blogs.cb...48484/26490765

Both of these guys can fill the void at SF and become the 20ppg player we need. They also defend like crazy and play hard every night.

I'm never the type to say "MAKE A DEAL FOR _________!!!!" but either of these guys would be fantastic for us. I'd take Wallace if I had to choose simply because he's younger, is a bit better of a defender, and is a true small forward.

These are the type of guys DeRozan and Weems need to play under and hopefully turn into. (Hint: They won't).

I don't know what pieces we have that Charlotte would want other than Peja's expiring, but this would literally be a perfect fit.

Wallace has publicly stated he doesn't want to play here. Jackson would be interesting but I'd have questions about his attitude.

Jackson gets too grumpy, and doesn't seem to mind getting tossed from games occasionally. He can score there's no question there, but he's slowed down a bit these last couple years.

G-Wallace on the other hand is an All-Star, and from what I've seen worth every penny.

Blazers need that big Mohammed lunker, or Diaw, or anybody over 5'10" that can play basketball halfway decent.
Yes, Toby has thought about trying out for the Blazers.

Publicly? When was that? I remember a rumour, but did he come out in an interview and say that he wouldn't play here. I wouldn't want either of them.

pass on both. Jackson can play. I like Wallace's game but he's a little reckless for my taste. I'd be afraid of him hurting himself.

Besides, fuck helping MJ. MJ can eat a dick after how he did us last summer.

three part trade:
Barbosa and Miami pick for Diaw

Demar for Henderson and Collins

Wallace for TPE and toronto first top 10 protected 2011, top 5 2012, top 2 2013

Charlotte saves cash, gets some youth and picks

Toronto better balances team.

Bayless/Jose/Collins
Demar/Wright/Henderson
Wallace/Kleiza/Peja
Amir/Davis/Evans
Bargs/Diaw/Dorsey

Tyrus Thomas. Raptors need some interior defense. Tyrus Thomas just signed a $40 million contract for 5 years. So you have a 24 year old shot blocking stud locked up for the next 5 years, who get 10 plus points a game and shoots over .500. An expring contract and Miami's low first draft pick.

I would give my left nut for Wallace.

He's EXACTLY the type of player that this team needs.

Tyrus Thomas or Wallace would be great! More so Wallace because he can fill the void at SF.

Why give up Demar and Barbosa? The players that needs to go is Sonny and Kleiza.

Yes. When we had JO pre-Marion trade he came out in the media and said it. I don't know where it was originally printed but its mentioned near the end of this article.
