    Now is not the time to move JV unless theres some superstar package that falls at your doorstep. JV is worth more possible playoff wins than some marginal stretch 4 or 3&D upgrade over Pascal or OG
    That package is what I think most people are referring to in a trade of JV scenario. May not fall at our door step, but I'm sure Masai is looking for one such package.

    Is trading Norm even a possibility at this years deadline? I doubt they have given up on him, but he's about completely out of the rotation lately and taking up some significant cap space. That and OG being the present and future starter at SF would suggest Norm is expendable.

    Not sure how many takers there given his horrid play this season, and his hefty contract.

    Norm signed an extension. As a rule players that sign an extension can't be traded for at least 6 months from the day they signed one. That's why Norm can't be traded before the deadline.

    No, he cannot be traded until the Raptors are eliminated from this years playoffs.

    I wouldn't mind trading Bebe for a pick. But other than that, I don't really see a move out there that would help the Raptors in the short term. Tyreke Evans would require a pick to go the other way (at least) for example.
    Well, there you go. Three team deal - BeBe out to third team, Evans in, pick from third team to MEM. Not sure what team would give up a pick for BeBe though. More likely I think is that MEM finds that Evans has no market and settles for a swap for BeBe.

    But I expect no trades at all. The JV for a star concept is a pipedream and I'm not interested in lateral moves.

    It's a Minesweeper machine that doubles as a Solitaire dealer. Incredible invention.

    I can't see JV being traded. Maybe his biggest skill is plus defensive rebounding, a skill no one else on the roster has.
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    True, but I was going to say Norm and JV with Mike Conley might interest Memphis and persuade them to trade Gasol. They stick to old school grind it out basketball, and get younger. Not a full blow up, but a reset. Not that I'm in the Gasol to Raptors camp, but no doubt it improves the team a bit.

    Norm cannot be traded it seems, so we don't have the pieces that might interest Memphis. Would not move OG for Gasol.

    How bout this trade:

    http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=y79wexy8

    TOR sheds salary and sends JV & Powel to CLI and Miles to Bucks
    LAC trades Deandre and gets from them a future 1st +JV + Powell and John Henson to match salary
    MIL gets their all-star center in DeAndre and a sharpshooter in Miles

    ... the RAPTORS get freakin Jabari Parker and Teletovic

    We shed 30 million owned next year to miles+JV+powell, we can match offers for Jabari in restricted free agency and Teletovic becomes an expiring next year.


    PG: Lowry, FVV
    SG: DeRozan, Delon
    SF: OG, Jabari
    PF: Ibaka, Pascal, Teletovic
    C: Poetl, Lucas

    He's been quite able to move JV for over a year now and unhappy with the potential return, a circumstance I see no reason will change now.
    I'm just saying there's no guarantee that JV doesn't get moved given there's been more rumours about him than any other Raptor since Masai started here.

    Also our payroll jumps to $126mm next year even after Bruno/Bebe expire, and the luxury tax is at $121mm, so even if JV isn't moved now, there is a decent chance it happens this summer.

    Although at this point Norm looks more like the odd man out than JV, even though we need wing depth more than bigs.
