We need elite talent and a winning culture and players will come. This isn't something that gets built overnight with one or two big free agent signings. Its a long term project.
I'm not being argumentative here, but how many truly "elite" players have ever played for Toronto as a result of signing here of their own free will? Let's go down the list quickly:
Damon Stoudamire - drafted
Tracy McGrady - drafted
Vince Carter - drafted
Chris Bosh - drafted
Shawn Marion - trade (although elite is a term that I wouldn't really assign to him)
Those are just the ones that spring to mind.
