    sorry but you have to things in perspective here. if the magics record is so horrible, what do you have to say about a team whos 15-15? wouldn't mediocre be the proper term for it?

    sacramento kings record is horrible. are you saying demarcus cousins sucks?
    You better tell me whats the different when
    Chris Bosh in Raptors and Chris in Heats.
    AB7 in Raptors and Knicks.
    even Damon stoudemire in Raptors and Portland

    If you are the only weapon in a horrible team, your number should higher.

      Plus afflalo was a solid contributor on a much better Denver team. It's hard to compare players when they are in totally different situations, but when I watch Afflalo play, he looks much better than Demar (mainly defense and outside shooting)

          I don't know how fans can be happy about this interview and this information. He basically said nothing and lets just hope that it is because he wants to keep his cards close to the chest for his future moves and ... The whole thing about " We are still evaluating" is a PURE BS. He was a part of this organization for many years and has been around this team for quite a time now and we are at game 30 of this season which means almost half way there.

          There is no more secrete or ambiguity around this team. There is 3 things that can happen ...

          1) Tank : Trade Lowry or DD or Amir and get your TANK starting NOW and hope for a good draft pick.

          2) Stay with the same guys: And hope no other teams make more moves and improve and in a east that half of the teams are tanking and the other half are handicapped due to the injuries, get to be the 3rd of the 4th best team, pass the first round and then get your ass handed to you by Heat in the 2nd round

          3) Make moves and get rid of Field, Novak, Hayes' contract and actually try to compete against Indiana and Heat.


          Right now, I think MU is going with #2 option which is the easiest one for him to take. Option 1 and 2 involve taking risks and begin couragous and I think for him at the moment, option 2 is what makes sense ...

            At the same time, I'd be much less comfortable with Afflalo trying to take those tough 4th quarters jumpers DeMar hit with Paul George totally up in his face.

              Call it what you want. But Arron Afflalo is not someone i would trade for. And DeMarcus cousins has been putting up big numbers since he arrived in Sac Town, that team is just poorly managed. This is Afflalo's first season where he's put up such big numbers, so i don't see him sustaining it. To say Terrence Ross or DeMar DeRozan will never be as good as Arron Afflalo is laughable to say the least. He's nothing special

                Well, first of all Afflalo is a much better player than Derozan is or will ever be. Check his Win Shares on that. A backcourt of Afflalo and Lowry would be the best in the East, possibly the entire league. Second, it sounds like you believe the draft is the only way for the Raps to add good players. This is not correct. That's not how the two best players on the team, Lowry and Johnson, were added.

                  Yeah, he never gives a time frame on anything which is key along with the vagueness. What happens if team goes on 5 game losing streak? Are they still winning?

                  Anyways, most interesting year of Raptor ball in 4-5 seasons!
                  That is exactly what I am saying ... He did not give any information and that is a smart way for him to save his ass ... Now, I hope he knows what he wants to do and is done with his " evaluations" ... Because REALLY, there is ONLY 3 path that this team can really go.

                        Exactly my point. Some people just need to learn to stop being so narrow minded and look at the bigger picture

                          If we were a contender this trade makes sense because its helps now! but were not a contender and we need to develop our young players and Im happy MU is the GM not some of this people on this forum

                            People on here talking garbage about Afflalo have no idea about his game and what kind of player he is. He's a really good, clutch shooter, has very good basketball IQ, a decent defender and seems to get better each year. I would love to have a guy like that on my team, but it all depends on price. It would be tough to give up on Ross right now, and I probably wouldn't.

                              Yup.. it should not be an easy No. Afflalo is a really good player. And him being 28 is actually still young. Lowry is 28 after all and many want him back.

                              I still don't think that specific trade should be done (Ross + piece for Afflalo). I think that would create a Gay/DD situation since Aaron has a lot of similar qualities to DeMar.. I also like what Ross brings to the team. But it should not be an easy no.

                                I would only do it if you throw in a pick.
