Granger is hurt but when healthy is that SF we need.

Some other players the Raptors could look into are:

Derek Williams - Hasn't really taken off in Minnesota. Is a high pick and could break out with a change of scenery.

Tiago Splitter - Young with potential. San Antonio is more often than not a great fit for other team's rejects. Bargnani will flourish there, I know it.

Derrick Favours - Utah is also a good place for other team's rejects.

Thomas Robinson - I don't know why I mentioned him. He's one of my favorite prospects from last draft.
Derrick Williams - As been pointed out before, Williams is sort of a man without a position. Not big/strong enough for the 4-spot, not fast enough for the 3-spot. I'm not saying it would be AWFUL because he definitely has potential to put it together, but it'll be a project. Additionally, I doubt Minnesota really wants Bargnani when they already have Love that can stretch the floor if necessary.

Tiago Splitter - Not a bad destination for Bargnani, but I'm not sure if Splitter really fits well with us. Is he better than Ed Davis?

Derrick Favors - Utah definitely won't be giving him up. Millsap isn't sticking around in Utah (if speculation is correct), and they hold Favors in pretty high regard.

As for Granger, I think he'd be nice for us to have him, but I really really doubt he'll play for us with any kind of enthusiasm, if at all. This is a guy that refused to even work out for Toronto in his draft year. I don't think that kind of personality will work well here.
