Question What do the Raptors need?

There needs to be a better pg instead of Jose, sg is fine (what i think), small forwards i think they should trade kleiza cause he is so inconsistent, power forwards are ok and we need another backup big man. what do you think?

Right now they need Bargnani and Bayless back.
With the way DeRaozan's been playing, Bargnani's play will improve if DeRozan can find him in the lane. Bayless and Barbosa are the only other players who have shown aggressiveness like DeRozan.

So what do the Raps need? They need to get healthy and let this group develop through wins or losses.

why is everyone hating on jose, he knows how to run this offense well and is doing a good job, our primary concern should be the sf spot because you got kleiza and then weems, both who are inconsistent.

Jose is trying his best,but I think they need a better small forward cause Linas is ridiculous missing the open shots and is very inconsistent even though he averages around 20 points for the past 5 games.

i've been watching a lot of ball outside the Raptors lately. the only way i see Raptors being successful now is by modeling teams like memphis, and OKC. both of those teams build with young athletic guys. get defensively minded, and have at least 2 go to scorers. With Rudy Gay in Memphis, Kevin Durant in OKC, can the play as of late of Derozan be our guy?

A starting point guard that can score AND distribute the ball.

A player that can consistently knock down 3s.

I would say that the Biggest impact on the team would be a legit defensive minded center to start beside bargniani. I strongly believe that the Raptors would be at minimum headed for the playoffs if they had one. Other than that the team could also use some improvement at the 3 (I think kleiza is worth keeping with the proper role given to him, but I'm not a Sonny Weems fan)

I only recently become a hardcore basketball fan starting from last season and I can tell you that Jose is hurting the Raptor Title of Point guard. Yes Jose as of recent is become like the Jose of 06-07 or whatever but during these past years he's getting owned, tricked, and schooled by countless of point guard :facepalm:; and today I think he and Kleiza got owned by Rondo fake.

Kleiza needs to go; dont care if he is doing good as of late. As for weems we'll see how he does when he comes back; if he still sucking trade him during deadline. The players we need to keep are Demar, Davis, Bayless, Barbosa, Barg, Amir, Dorsey, Wright, Alabi, and maybe Evan so he can raise our Bigs the cookie jar defense . The rest can kiss my ass and be gone.

A new head coach, star PG, good defensive Center (moving Bargs to PF) for starters.The Kleiza hatred here is astounding at times, as a starter he's shooting well overall and averaging nearly 16/6. I'm wondering what people expected from him. At 4.5Mil did you think he was gonna be a defensive stud and an all-star?
