is nazr better than gray? maybe just about. I still think there's value to gray having been here last year.

If you watched Nazr play recently, you'd know that he isn't.

i was allowing him to have his opinion basically. I don't have much opinion on who is better. I watched Nazr a fair few times last season. Including play-offs i probably saw OKC about 15 times. He didn't get many minutes when i saw them, which you would probably say is indicative. But he looked like he still had some game to me. wily vet.

i also think gray is a bit underrated on here, as a few others have pointed out.

Nothing wrong with Gray, he is a bit awkward and disoriented at times but overall he is alright

He has all the Dwayne Casey criteria to fit in nicely with the new look team, and would be a great mentor to JV, Amir, & maybe even the soft banana. (bargs)(I LOVE Bargnani don't get me wrong, but the guy could use a lesson or two from a legendary rebounder.)

However, no matter how much I like the idea, I don't think it's a likely scenario.
Camby is probably going to get around 5 million a year, maybe even 6+. I think that is way too much for a injury prone geezer.
at the mini mid-level of $3 million I'd say hell yeah, but in this market I don't think so.
+ knowing it was Toronto he'd probably ask for 8.5 lol

If I had a choice, I would take a shot at Nazr Mohammed. I think he would come at a very nice price for what he can bring in terms of respect, leadership, and a championship presence for a young and hungry locker room.
He also seems like a genuine nice guy who can help the franchise on and off the court.
It's easy to forget he was the starting center on the 2005 title winning San Antonio Spurs and a 2 NCAA Champion (1996, 1998)



A couple more reasons to love Nazr:

well he does have trouble putting the ball into the hoop at point blank range, but if you just want him to plant himself in the paint and grab boards he is fine

I think Alabi might be ready to play some minutes next season.

I don't know who they start, though.

Maybe another trade is in the works.

Alabi is gone most likely. No QO, he's a UFA and he's likely heading to a different league.

shaq + jonasV would be awesome. jonasV already has more personality than probably any1 on the roster, imagine the crazy antics him and shaq would do.
