Exclamation RUMOR: Dion Waiters to Raptors for Terrence Ross

Chris Broussard is saying that Dion Waiters is being shopped because he “has a contentious relationship with several teammates, including star point guard Kyrie Irving” (you might recall this). This led Joe Kaiser to post Insider speculation regarding Toronto giving up Waiters for Terrence Ross:

Quote:
Yes, they already have DeMar DeRozan locked up to a long-term deal and 2012 lottery pick Terrence Ross coming off the bench. A deal involving Waiters-for-Ross would make some sense, though. The quiet personality of Ross would provide more harmony in the locker room, and the Cavs could use his 3-point shooting. From the Raptors’ standpoint, Waiters would bring more versatility off the bench than that of Ross, who has been mostly a 3-point shooter and highlight-reel dunker so far in his pro career.

as my 2 year old would say "i not like this. bleh."


seems pretty lateral. i like what ross is showing these days, and don't like the idea of bringing in a guy that isn't much better and has a history of being a locker room issue.

There's no way Masai looks as this as a one for one swap. Include a pick swap or other asetts and raps would have to consider it.

I like the fact that he would call out a primma donna like Irving. He's competitive and a tough cookie. I also wonder how well he and Lowry know eachother, both being from Phili.

He can play the point, so Casey could run with a three player rotation at the 1 & 2 spots, and being 21, he could also possible be a future starting pg. Waiters is younger than Ross and has so far has shown that he is the better player.

Trade Gay or DeRozan... not ross. I'm 100% positive either gay or derozan will be moved before the season ends

Derozan putting together a good year so far.. I wouldn't move him.. and trading Ross wouldn't make any sense, especially for a chucker in waiters..

If anything this would be a 3 team trade. Waiters for Ross straight up doesn't makes sense

Can this team never sell high? IMO if we're trading DD at this point though we better damn well get more than Waiters.
