They might make the playoffs, but they are still a LONG ways away from being a true contender.

Internet sources say the Raptors will send as many as four draft picks to the Rockets, two first-round picks and two second-round pick. One of the first rounders is to be a lottery pick.

Collangelo outbid himself again, although i love Lowry and because of that I understand. I still think Collangelo should be fired.

They mention "internet sources" and that's the only one I've read that states 4 picks. So hopefully it's BS.

Rockets won't get top-3 pick next year, top-2 pick next two years or No. 1 pick the next two. Otherwise lottery pick goes to Houston.

I could see that happening. Thing is that "minor road bump" tweet was fake. Stein never posted anything like that.

We save more money by getting out from under Jose and his hefty contract. Then we sign Greg Oden to a cheap contract. ( I know people are going to **** on me for wanting Oden but in all seriousness for cheap you can have a good young Center who is capable of being dominate if he could stay healthy. And for say 1- 1.5 Million who cares really if he stays healthy or not. Could also bring in someone like Kris Humphries who I think would bring more then Bargani could ever do for this franchise then we can out Bargani.

I don't follow the team real close but from what I seen I think getting rid of Calderon and Bargnanii would be the start of moving the franchise forward.

Calderon plays no D and neither does Andrea and there are more rounded players out there for cheaper...neither is considered a franchise player.

I wonder if Colangelo has the stones to make a deal with either or better yet package them up in a deal using Calderon's expiring contract as a sweetener.

Basically, after they do the ping pong balls:

in 2013, if Raptors pick is 1-3 or 15-30, Raptors keep it, otherwise it goes to houston
If Raptors keep the pick, then:
in 2014, if Raptors pick is 1-2 or 15-30, Raptors keep it, otherwise it goes to houston
If Raptors keep the pick, then:
in 2015, if Raptors pick is 1-2 or 15-30, Raptors keep it, otherwise it goes to houston
If Raptors keep the pick, then:
in 2016, if Raptors pick is 1 or 15-30, Raptors keep it, otherwise it goes to houston
If Raptors keep the pick, then:
in 2017, if Raptors pick is 1 or 15-30, Raptors keep it, otherwise it goes to houston
If Raptors keep the pick, then:
Houston gets nothing.

Houston cannot receive more than 1 pick.

lol, so if the Raptors make the playoffs for the next 5 years, Houston gets Gary Forbes straight up for Lowry.

Even if we get bounced in the 1st every time, I'd still laugh if that happened.

The Raptors really need DD to take the next step and become a 20 PPG guy.

Now let's trade Jose Calderon and one of Ed Davis/Amir Johnson for Andre Iguodala.

GS beat writer is wondering if the Raptors might want to look at Warriors RFA Brandon Rush.

Quote:
According to sources, one team considering making an offer to Rush is the Toronto Raptors, who had hoped to sign Nash. The Raptors had allocated significant money to Nash and now will look elsewhere and perhaps toward Rush.
http://www.csnbayarea.com/basketball...66&feedID=5986

Seems like he's pulling that out of his ass. And Rush is basically James Johnson if JJ were a jump shooter instead of a slasher on offence. No thanks.
