I was upset like many other members about the drafting of Terrence Ross at eight. Nothing against the kid, but just not the right pick at 8 with Drummond on the board. But moving forward, what do you guys think the Raps should do?

We have less than 48 hours to use that cap space from the Barbosa trade to acquire another player without sending much salary in return. I think that kind of deal is probably unlikely. I would try to first sign Steve Nash for 3 years. If Nash signs, either package Calderon in a trade for a SF or amnesty him creating additional 10.5 million in cap space. I'd use that to make an offer for Batum. But with all that cap space I think the Blazers will match. There's still a lot of other options at the wing: Kirlenko, Matt Barnes that won't cost much. But if we can't acquire a big wing player via free agency, we have to make an offer for one of: AI, Gay, Granger (or any other legit SF that's available). With Rose injured and the uncertainty surrounding the Celtics roster; with Nash and a legit SF, we would at the very least round out the top five in the East.

Alex Kennedy: The Toronto Raptors will make a hard push to sign Steve Nash, according to sources. That's one reason Toronto didn't deal #8 for Kyle Lowry. Twitter

Nash, exile Calderon, Batum.

Nash/Bayless?
Demar/Ross/Forbes
Batum/JJ
Bargs/Ed/Acy
JV/Amir/Touch of Gray

Meh... sounded better in theory.

Batum is not coming to Toronto. 80% chance he stays in Portland.

Yeah, highly unlikely with all that cap space the Blazers have

I'm stumped! I honestly don't know because based on personnel,I don't understand BC/DC & ES strategy.

I like DeRozan but I don't see him playing SF and I don't believe Ross can.

Package DeRozan,Calderon and a top 5 protected 1st round pick for Gay and Wroten Jr.

Sign Nash,resign Bayless (to play SG off the bench,start Ross)
Sign an experienced Center to start and relieve pressure off JV

Best I could come up with...

i don't like the idea of buying out jose, i don't see why we cant trade him, end of the day he is a pass first point guard who can lead a team, there is 29 other teams your telling me we cant find a team who wants him

if we do buy him out he will be a heat thanks to chris bosh

I don't know about amnestying him, but trade for him for sure. If amnestying him is our last option, do it.
