I am. I expect AP(Exp. contract), Kapono and maybe Moon(Exp contract) to be gone by New year or shortly thereafter.I'm not saying all of them but at least two of these players will probably be gone.I want AB to stay though.

it is very clear that the trio of Joey, Jason, and Jamario are worth very little to anyone else. i don't know many teams that need a 3rd scorer on the wing who can't score anymore. Anthony Parker has a bit of value but it is falling nightly. BC has a lot of problems with cap space and contracts expiring. i wonder who would be willing to take any of those guys and give something we can use up. i don't think we will find anyone willing to give us a fire sale like gasol was last year.

You can't trade nothing for something.

Exactly.

Freeride, i'd love to say it's just you, but it remains astonishing how many people don't get the fact we just don't have tradeable assets that we're willing to more right now. It ain't happening. Perhaps a trade deadline move that involves some of our expiring contracts like AP, Joey... but that's all we should reasonably expect this year.

Agreed, keep in mind we are right up against the Luxury tax and you have no wiggle room whatsoever.

I have one word for this roster and its simple: HOPE

HOPE JO and Bosh stay healthy and countine to blend together

HOPE Bargnani could play some consistent ball

HOPE Will and Roko can play the Point Guard position sonner rather than later


Just HOPE baby because the only move happening this year will be the removal of the Smitch

yea we don't have enough talent to trade for anything more

the only way we can realistically improve is our 2009 draft pick

hopefully they dont draft another bust.

Its hard to stick with Andrea I agree with that. His inconsistency and Eli Manning - esque attitude is nothing but a piss off.

I think BC would deal him but it wouldn't be for a dump.

They can get rid of whoever they want, other than JO Bargs caldy and bosh. I'll be dissapointed if one of them goes. Anyone else can gladly leave

I really dont see much BC can do outside of moving AB in a package deal that would land us anything signifigant, unless Dallas really wants to move Stack for nothing.

I was thinking the same thing only player on the Raptors, teams would be interested in is Bargs, but we all know that BC is gonna trade him.
Its make Bargs look like an even bigger bust if you just ship him out!
I've been saying this since 2007 fire sam I like him as person...but as a coach it's not cutting it.

new coach is needed. But i can happily say goodbye to Moon, Graham, and Parker. We need better players.

You guys are hilarious.

Yeah, we'll just trick another team into trading us a couple of good, serviceable players for a bunch of underperforming pylons.

Only if we add Bargnani and some picks on top of that. But few people in Raptorland want to even think of it.

I still think Jose would make more sense than Bargnani, and obviously that isn't going to happen. But that's the only guy that's really going to bring pieces back that will matter enough to make the move. Not having a backup as it is, and knowing the loyalty that Jose has shown to Toronto makes it impossible, but any more non-contact injuries and I hope it's something that gets considered at least.

I can see a servicable player that can fill a need being brought in, but its only gonna be a benchie that may develop, IE: Marco or someone along those lines.
