Question Is Roko going to be traded now?

Brian Colangelo was just on RapsTv and said that he has talked to Roko's agent about the posibility of moving him if it's the right situation. Which makes sense considering Banks probably can't be moved. So can Roko be packaged with say...George or Douby and get something worth mentioning in return?

Unlikely, but who knows.

So, are we then going to enter the season with two PGs and hope that somehow Banks finds a way to be useful in a pinch?

Not much worse then Roko imo. Not only that with Douby and possibly Delfino there who can also play PG neither Banks or Ukic will much of a sniff anyway.

Instead of trading roko i think BC should work some magic again and find a way to trade banks and douby. (Possibly for a SF?)

I think roko is still worth holding on to as the 3rd string PG. He has potential and just needs time to develop. Remember that when Calderon first came to the raps years ago he faced similar criticism ie. inconsistent shooting

Raptors should definitely hold on to Ukic, he's for the future. But I expect Jack to be more of 2 during his time in Toronto so it shouldn't be much of a big deal. I wouldn't expect Banks or Douby to have much of a role for the team.

Banks will have some value next season when he's an expiring contract.

Banks with a bad contract and coming off an injury will be difficult to move and Douby makes little money and i'd rather see him stay then Roko. But we might be able to dump Douby. I don't think there's any team clamering to get Roko. Then again, Douby either??

There is nothing wrong with having three guys who can play the point. If Jose goes down you're going to be glad Ukic is here.

No i won't. We have other players that can play that spot for 10-15min behind Jack if Jose goes down. Other then possibly Banks, Roko is our shittiest player at the moment.

Banks is a perfectly good 3rd string point guard...it's just his contract that sucks. If there is anyone interested in the potential of Ukic that's going to offer something good..look at it i say.

You're on some shit.

Ukic had some really good games. He took some big shots in some games for us, notably vs. the Magic and the Spurs.

You're expecting production out of Banks...He might not even be around come the start of the season.

Seriously, he was shit for 98% of the season. It is nice that you were able to pull out a couple plays where he did something but it doesn't change my mind about him.

I'd rather get rid of banks, but that ain't gonna happen imo until next summer at the earliest. Therefore i'd like to trade Roko and have our combo's Douby/Delfino? play some minutes behind Jack if Jose gets hurt.

The Roko situation is a bit weird - obviously he and his agent don't want him to be a 3rd string point guard. Based on his performance last season, though, I don't know if any teams really want him as a primary backup. If that's the case, there's not much point in a trade, from both perspectives.

I'd like to keep him around if possible, he's good insurance if Jose or Jack gets hurt. I think he's got the potential to be pretty good, if he improves his jump-shot and decision-making. Big ifs.

What is exactly is that 98% based on? Tell me, I'd like to know. And what exactly were you expecting from him in his rookie season?

I hate when people rate players on one season. You can't give your impressions on a player and how he will be for the rest of his career over the course of his rookie season, let alone his first three seasons in the league. It takes time for talent to develop. Kobe wasn't the Kobe that he is today in his first season.

98% - Minus those few plays he stunk.

As for his Rookie season. I didn't expect much because the word was he wasn't that good. But seeing some improvement from Oct.- Apr. would have been nice. Hell he even stunk in SL.
