Ok... we've made the necessary moves to get Hedo Turkoglu in a Raptors uniform along with Devean George and Antoine Wright and in the process have secured our bird rights and MLE/BAE. Here is our current lineup, with the list of the main FA still available. What moves would you make, who would you give part or all the MLE to (same with BAE). Plus who would you maybe trade?

Jose/?/Ukic/Banks
?/Wright/DD/Douby
Turkoglu/DD/George
Bosh/Evans/?
Bargnani/?/POB


FA:

Marquis Daniels-Unrestricted
Brevin Knight -Unrestricted
Matt Barnes-Unrestricted
Linas Kleiza- Restricted
Carlos Delfino- Restricted
Rasho Nesterovic- Unrestricted
Pops Mensah-Bonsu-Restricted
Anthony Carter- Unrestricted
Rashad McCants- Restricted

NOTE: I'm just drawing numbers out of a hat here.

1. Sign Pops with Bi-Annual. (Probability: 40%)
2. Sign Rasho with an half or a third of the MLE. (Probability: 70%)
3. Sign Anthony Carter with the rest of the MLE. (Probability: 20%)


EDIT: Just noticed Delfino isn't on your list.

Depends on how well does DD do in the summer league and camp, but if we bring Delfino I would prefer Carlos off the bench and DD starting. We will need the scoring from the second team and so far I dont see anyone apart of him that can bring it.

^ Pops can be signed with bird rights... if we wanted him.

I would do

Bird: Delfino

MLE: Marquis Daniels (4 mil), Ronnie Price (2 mil)
BAE: Rasho

Calderon/Price
Daniels/Delfino
Turkoglu/Derozan
Bosh/Evans
Bargnani/Rasho/POB

We're the perfect team to mask Daniels' lack of shooting range. His d, slashing, and strength finished around the rim would be gladly welcome

I'd be cool with Jarrett Jack too

delfino...marquis would look good in a raps jersey. sign rasho, and a backup pg for security in case roko isn't up to it again this year. that's pretty deep imo

I would want Barnes here too some how

Insurance PG - Lindsey Hunter for Vet minimum - just in case that roko doesn't play well
Wing Player - Matt Barnes for maybe about 2.5-3M of MLE - depth @ the 3 position
Back Up big man - Rasho/Pops for under 2M for BAE or vet minimum or qualifying offer

PG - Calderon, Ukic, Hunter
SG - Derozan, Wright
SF - Turkoglu, Barnes, George
PF - Bosh, Evans, (Turkoglu/Barnes)
C - Bargnani, (Rasho/Pops),

Inactive - OBryant, Douby, Banks

Men please wake up! You're dreaming!

We're not spending full MLE, LLE and Bird rights on Carlos D and Pops! That's out of our financial range. It would mean about 12M on the cap, making us tax payers next year... That's not happening. Doug Smith is right. Delfino comes with 60% of the MLE, we spend these 40% on a back up PG (Ty Lue, Anthony Johnson) and LLE goes to Rasho. Nothing more shocking than it

BTW don't forget Antoine Wright. He's a nice defender and he can be really useful

Actually BC talked to E. Smith today and said he'd like to possibly sign a couple large one year contracts, and said he'd possibly overpay a player for one year to get the best team possible on the court. And he also brought up the possibility of moving Wright/George.

Brevin knight hands down.

Low risk, Low turnovers, Excellent defender, played under sloan (smart player).

Would be a great backup PG.

He's used to playing 25-30MPG. Would he come here to play 10MPG?

no need for a backup pg at this point and time. Unless someone comes knocking on the door for Banks anytime soon.....

Sign Pops(minimum
Sign Delfino
Sign Rasho

If George really does want to play here then sign Joey to a min

If George wants to go, then sign Barnes

simple.

Jose/Ukic/Banks
DD/DElfino/Douby
Turk/GeorgeorBarnes/Joey
Bosh/Evans/Pops
Bargs/Rasho/POB

Then let's hope George wants to go. Either way though Joey isn't coming back.

good chance someone like him is.

A minimum guy happy to have a contract.

As a "practice guy" "garbage time guy" or whatever you want to call it, I would love to see Joey Back. Knows all the guys, knows his place, and most importantly.......doesnt complain about only playing 5 minutes a game.

BC on the fan, said he was looking to make a "big swing." He didn't really delve too deep into it, but simply signing Delfino, Rasho and Barnes wouldn't qualify as a "big swing" in my opinion. I think there's something more significant on the horizon.

What I would do:

Bird: Delfino / Pops
MLE: Daniels (3.5), Carter (2.5)
BAE: Rasho

Jose / Ukic / Banks
DD / Delfino / Daniels
Turkoglu / Daniels / DD
Bosh / Evans / Pops
Bargs / Rasho / POB

Two deep at every position, solid team.

we should try to sign one of the best players in the free agent pool, and than trade him along with wright and george for a legit sg. theres really no reason to sign 2 more average players when we already have 3. Delfino, Derozan, george, wright, Klezia/barns, the coach is going to be pulling his hair out deciding who to play every game. I say get a good sg, have him and Turk eat up most of the time and have derozan play the rest

Colangelo yesterday said that they are committed to spending up to the tax threshold.... and if they do that joey won't be back. Plus George IMO should be that guy, he makes barelly over the minimum and shouldn't be the primary back up to Turkoglu.And it's very obvious BC doesn't want Joey.

The only Big swing left is Hill as I can't see him EVER going after AI


Sign Hill for $3mil of MLE (2 or 3yrs)
Sign Brevin Knight for the rest of the MLE

Sign Rasho to LLE or BAE

Re-sign Pops

Buy out Douby


Calderon/Knight/Ukic/Banks
Hill/DeRozen
Hedo/Wright/George
Bosh/Evans/Pops
Bargs/Rasho/O'Bryant


That's a mighty fine team!!!
