    Default Using The MLE To Sign A Player For The 3

    Grange suggested the Raptors will take a big man at 13 and it makes sense given the depth there in this class and the fact that Bosh may (likely) be gone. Beyond that, they're looking to move Hedo. Now unless they're willing to take on Gil they're probably going to be left with the option of taking a role player with an inflated contract. That player is probably going to be a bench player and so let's assume that's the way they go for this thread. If that's the case then we would be looking at Bargnani starting at center or power forward, along with the draft pick or maybe Johnson filling the other starting role in the paint with DeRozan at SG and one of Calderon or Jack manning the point. As much as I like Weems I think he's best suited for the bench in a sixth man role. All that said, they're going to need to bring in somebody to start at the 3. If you head on over to my thread titled "FA Power Rankings" you'll see a large group of potential candidates who may be able to start at the 3 and who may cost anywhere from a portion of the MLE to all of the MLE. There are also some guys who could be had for the BAE. I will list some of these players now and I'd like us to discuss how they would fit in Toronto. Also feel free to answer the poll at the top:

    - Ray Allen
    - Al Harrington
    - Mike Miller
    - Josh Childress (R)
    - Ronnie Brewer (R)
    - Travis Outlaw
    - Josh Howard
    - Dorell Wright (R)
    - Tracy McGrady
    - Larry Hughes
    - Marquis Daniels
    - Matt Barnes
