Default Raptors were interested in TJ Ford?

Quote:
A league source says the Charlotte Bobcats wanted to get involved as well, using the non-guaranteed contract of center Erick Dampier to try and get a point guard. Under one scenario, Dampier would have gone to Indiana, the team that originally drafted him in 1996, with T.J. Ford going to Toronto and the Raptors sending guard Jose Calderon to Charlotte. (The Raptors had agreed to send Calderon to the Bobcats earlier this summer in a deal that would have sent center Tyson Chandler to Toronto, but the deal was scotched at the last minute by Charlotte owner Michael Jordan.)
NBA.com: Why they did it: Breaking down the four-team trade

Even though he would be back as just a backup, heeellllllll nooo. I'm so happy this didn't go through. We traded Ford so Caldy could start then we tried to trade Clady for Ford

Getting Ford for Calderon? HELL NO! The entire point of trading Jose is to free up playing time at the guard positions and to acquire a player at the center or wing. Why would we add TJ Ford back into the mix? @ Blaze, completely agree with you. What's the point of trading Ford in the first place?

I'd rather get a Nazr Mohammed, who is also an expiring from Charlotte. I'm sure we can easily negotiate a one-for-one deal with the Bobcats.

I agree i'd rather get Mohammed as well. Then again we have so little options at this point since not manny want Calderon since he's one of, if not the worst defender in the league and is about 5Mil/yr overpayed.

True. But for sure we can do better than Ford. Think about what you're saying Jeff. You've always wanted a center/small forward for Calderon to improve the roster before opening day. You and I both know that adding Ford will not improve our total wins at the end of the season, and if anything will bring us more losses.

Am I missing something? Why the hell would charlotte not trade us chandler for Calderon but they'll take Calderon for the guy they got for chandler ? Sure we'd get indiana involved but what's the difference for charlotte?

Because Jordan realized going into next season with D.J Augustine at the point is a recipe for disaster.

Pffft, they're not going anywhere with either. At least Augustine is younger, quicker and cheaper. Jose is a bit less of a disaster, but how much better would they be with Jose?

The Bobcats would be a lot better with Jose, they need an aggressive point guard, Augustine is far from that.

I thought BC was not going to take part in any trade involving Charlotte...

and FUCK TJ ... i dont want him back... no body wants him...

Indiana is reportedly trying to buy him out after not being able to deal him for 2 years... EVEN as a expiring this year!

The article doesn't say there were talks with Toronto or that BC wanted TJ Ford. For me it looks like a whole lot of wishful thinking from Charlotte.

unless Charlotte is giving us back something phenominal, i dont want BC to do any business with that snake MJ.
truthfully though, if ford is the only player we can get for calderon, then his stock has hit rock bottom.

That's probably the first thing BC says when he sees Charlotte on the caller ID: "Blow me away, or I'm hanging up."
