Exclamation Smith: Slim pickings left on the free agent market

Quote:
So, the question now is what’s next?

If you look over the list of remaining free agents (click here for a list courtesy of yahoo), I think you can say there’s not a whole lot there that’s even remotely interesting to this team.

Yeah, there are some names you might like and some guys you might think fit but considering what the Raptors are and what they need, there is really squat available on the market now that Barnes is gone.

That means if Bryan’s got a move or two to make – and while maybe he can live with Linas Kleiza and Sonny Weems as his small forwards but he cannot live with that rotation of bigs – he’s going to have to make a deal and use some of the trade exception money he’s got.

Maybe he does try to hit a home run, or maybe he settles for a so-so pickup to round out the roster but I say it’s going to have to come from somewhere other than the list of free agents who might be amenable to a sign-and-trade transaction.

Jose trade? Expirings? TPE? We certainly need another center and maybe a SF? At PG I wouldn't mind going with Banks/Barbosa/Beli.

I figured all along the only way we were going to bring anyone in would be through a trade.

Free agent market feels like a high school dance. All the good looking girls are on the dance floor. I think I'll dance with Debbie, she just wears braces.

Of course you did, you were gonna hear it from me. Anyone who thinks a Banks/Barbosa/Beli PG rotation is even SATISFACTORY is on serious DRUGS. Even Jack/Barbosa/Beli is pretty wack too... Call me crazy but I'll miss Jose's scoring if that's our rotation. It could get ugly.

Scoring? Jack is as good a scorer and shot as good as him last season. Jose could be a good scorer but isn't aggressive enough.

The scoring you'd get from Jack/Barbosa will be better then Jose/Jack

Meh I don't think BC is gonna pick up anything big now. Maybe through trades but not the FA

Win or lose this year and i'm figuring more of the latter i'm very interested and kinda excited to see what Derozan does with his increased role. I think he's going to be fun to watch along with the other young guys.
