That would be awesome ... do you have some trade in mind?

If Raptors doesn't trade away JO for smaller pieces, BC doesn't have the trading chips to bring someone better than RJ @11mil. The only trade asset BC have is the AP expiring contract and a first pick. Bosh/AB/Jose won't give you better value and JO is a too big contract to be swallowed by many GMs.

I honestly rather keep AP on the cheap, develop Joey and either move JO for space this year FA or next year trade for a swing possibily, i really haven no interest in RJ.

In your scenario, you still need a swing ... so, who do you have in mind? Let's see some concrete trade/signing proposals. Talking theoretical moves doesn't help this discussion

this whole discussion is theoretical, if you were a GM and just said well i dont know what the future holds and made panic moves like picking up a player like RJ that wouldnt even make us that much better, while Joey is finding his own on the cheap. Tieing up that kind of $, i believe is a bad move. GMs dont just operate on whats available now, good ones operate on whats best for the team and if its likely a better option will come along, and i would say it's very likely.

Joey is young, healthy, strong and cheap but I am not sure he'll ever be as good as Jefferson was at his best... question is if even Jefferson of today is as good as he was at his best.
