Just pray we can dump him to the Magic, Warriors or Wizards, the only franchises who are stupid enough to take the bait...

The east IS pretty weak, but I dunno, so are we. Lowry is solid, but you're in rough shape if he's the best player on your team. DeMar is athletic and has a fairly good midrange game, but his handle, passing and outside j are pretty weak for a SG. At SF we have a giant hole. Bargs has a great perimeter game for a PF, but can't defend or rebound, two of the most important facets of a big man's game. Val has a promising future, but is just a rookie, won't have a big impact this year. Our bench is decent, but nothing special, Amir is our best bench player. I dunno, in terms of our starting 5 I see poor defence and rebounding from our bigs (mostly Bargs), and not much ball handling, outside shooting, or dynamic play from our wings. It should take around 40 wins to make the playoffs, I see the Raps as more of a 30 win team.

Didn't the Raptors lose TWICE to the 7 win Bobcats last year. The Raptors always seem to hang in tough with good teams and crap the bed vs bad teams.
