How about this: TJ and Rasho for Kirk and Nocioni? Kirk could play the 2 and he's a very good defender. Chicago gets a PG who likes to share the ball and a very good center that has around 6-7 years left in him ...

That's why he doesn't start. The guy is exactly what the Raps need. Someone who actually gives a shit out there and who can play D.
Nocioni tries on D but still isnt very good.

It would be very hard to trade many in the Raps. I'd like to keep everyone and not make any big changes.

We have a good young team. We just need more productive consistency - consistency being the operative word - out of Parker, Moon, Bargnani and the bench; Especially from our tougher-built players like Humphries and Graham coz we need those guys on the court when it's time to ground and pound, while the more finesse players get a breather.

Bosh needs to put on some pounds, and keep up the progress. I'd like to see Garbo back in original form. I'd like to see more utilization of Kapono - he's like our underused Mr. Clutch, like when we had Dell Curry. It would be mistake to trade Kapono.

Parker and Moon are probably the only high-flying players we have. Thankfully, they have a midrange jumper as well. Although I'd like to see another one of them.

So, Richard Jefferson would be a good addition. He also seems like a team player, and doesn't need the limelight.

If we can get a decent backup to Calderon, first, I wouldn't mind trading a combination of TJ, Graham & draft-picks, for Richard Jefferson.


But, B.C. has it right when he finds (and keeps) players that wants to play for Toronto and doesn't mind living in it. Moves like shipping VC and Dixon out always improved our team. It leaves no room for locker room bickering and gives a chance for other bench players to showcase their skills.

Signing top international imports, before anyone else is always great, especially since they come with the "team-first" mindset. If only they come in an already "Physically tough" edition. :-)

We also have Garbo on contract next year and while I dont' see him as the starting SF we're going to have even more playing time issues next year. I think it's time to settle on 8 or 9 guys and ship out some of the others who expect minutes. The depth has been great but now that we're a winning team your starting to see some people complain about minutes and that's never good.

I might be looking forward to next year more than this years playoffs.

And I'll take RJ out of that clan. Poor mans Rip Hamilton. We need someone that moves around while yet another P&R takes place.

well, considering his big deficiency is in foot speed, and, he just had the absolute worst ankle brak you can have, and wil never be th esame again, and he'll b etwo years older, and his body will have dropped off as a reult of no tremaining in game shape for a very long time....considering all of this. I'm sorry, he won't be a factor at all.

STOP LOOKING AT ME SWAN!!

garbo will be back and he will be next seasons MVP, book it.:cheeky-smiley-013:











Now seriously, garbo is the kind of guy that doesnt need to be 100% to contribute, He will be back and he will do some good things next year. He is really similar to luke walton. Theres always room for someone like this on a team.

he will be expiring, so he'll have value. Combine Rasho and Garbo and you have 12 millions in expiring contracts. Add joey and you have 14. All you need to do is to find a rebuilding team with an unhappy superstar.
