Default What to do now?

As of now these appear to be our option or at least according to rumours.
Which would you choose?

Best case scenario is Marion/Kleiza. You get the best option at small forward while supplementing your bench depth at the same time.

best case scenario we resign marion, worst case scenario we pick up a sub-par SF head into the season and lose Bosh next year. we could trade Bosh now but there don't seem to be too many options ATM but i'd like to get a core of young developing players and maybe a pick or two. i liked the idea of getting gay + conley but nothing seems to be coming from it.

when bc does trade bosh, he is gonna have to be very careful and only trade if he knows the deal is a good one not if he feels it is good.

I hope so!Ultimately, what i want is for us to Sign Marion/Kleiza, but a close second would be sign Lee and trade Bosh/Banks to GS for Belinelli/Azubuike/Turiaf



Our bigs:

Lee/Evans/Pops
Bargs/Turiaf/POB (Now that's what i'm talking about.)

Then our wings would be Belinelli, Delfino,Derozan,Azubuike and then Marion or Kleiza.

something doesn't make sense. marion says he loves toronto and would love to return.but, he has to be selfish in taking all the money he can get. which toronto has his bird rights so, he can get the most money here without a doubt. it doesn't make sense he has to be lying about something.

nice try cleveland... not

Raptors forward Shawn Marion's name has also surfaced in Cleveland. He's a great rebounder and defender, but he doesn't want to play for the mid-level exception.

2 for sure

I'd rather S&T Bosh to NY, but not sign Lee and then look for suitors throughout the year... Look at Amare...

Marion/Kleiza

I'm OK with getting Ariza if Colangelo has a Bosh trade lined up. It'd make sense in a "we're rebuilding anyways so get the best young player you can and worry about the depth later"

if we don't get this team in order in the next 2 summers we're definitely going to have to rebuild.

I think Lee would be a great player for the Raps to get, the guy never quits an would be a terrific complimentary player alongside Bargs.
I really hope we can get Kleiza as well, he is a terrific backup who can handle plenty of minutes, in fact im suprised there is not more interest in the guy. I remember a couple of seasons back he put up 40+ pts against the Jazz when Melo was out with a suspension, the guy can make the 3, drive to the rim, hes tough and doesnt back away from the physical stuff.

Man first and foremost Marion has to get resigned before anyone gets signed.
