Raptors Trade Rumors for Ross

Found some article on trade rumors for Ross.

NBA Trade Rumors: Toronto Raptors Send Terrence Ross to Orlando Magic for Aaron Afflalo | Gospelherald.com

As many people know already, Aaron Afflalo was Ujiri's man back when MU was serving as GM in Denver.

After Ross' complete blow in playoff series, MU seemed to be interested in acquiring veteran player like Aaron Afflalo.

But why another SG, when we all know that DD cannot play as SF?

would not be happy with this. ross is still young and has potential, in the playoffs he was matched up with a HOF'er and struggled under the pressure.

Nothing in this says there is even anything linking the two teams discussing a Ross trade. It's speculation. Besides, the dollars don't add up and trading for another SG makes no sense.

Affalo is borderline all star and is great defensively. He could play the 3 easily. Depending on who we package with ross, i wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the idea

Are you suggesting Lowe is a dolt? Because he would need to be to see some sense in what a dolt says right?

Nope, they're both speculating, and Doug Smith is the dolt.

Ok - so what the hell is the Gospel Herald, and why do they link to an article from six months ago?The death of newspapers really does suck at times. The echo chamber of useless information on the internet is maddening.

Give me Doug Smith over someone who cuts out a paragraph from one source here and one source there anyday. He offered his own viewpoint at least, and it was entirely reasonable. If jeff can demonstrate how it is doltish in any way, then i will eat his shoe.

Doug was responding to a question, entirely reasonably. Do you think Ross is untouchable?

I hope this rumor is crap. Ross still has a lot of upside and his character blends well for team chemistry. Also, I am anxious to see what summer work he's put in.

I like Ross, and Afflalo, but losing Ross's athleticism would be a mistake..... but if they could add in a harkless or harris, could be an interesting proposition.

I dunno - calling someone a dolt when there is no reason to seems like something a dolt would do.
