  • What do you think about Landry Fields next season?

    I think he can be a contributor hopefully.
    Maybe he can get his shot somewhat back and crack Dwane Casey's rotation.
    He is a great defender without a question
    He's in a contract year next season so maybe he will have more incentive to play better?

    I'm glad he's an expiring.

    Maybe get a second rounder for him?

      I hope BOTH things happen. I honestly like Landry (always have, even since new York, thanks to the Andy And Landry show) and want good things for him, and want him to get back to what he was. But for that contract, I also hope we get some value out of him in a trade. Maybe some team sees him and wants a defense first insurance policy?

        And second round picks can be used as trading assets, so it's good if we stockpile some.

          Oh hey, Chicago/Houston/Sacramento/Cleveland/Suns/Celtics, you need a decent size expiring contract to make the salaries you send back work in your Kevin Love trade? Sure we'll throw in Landry for your second rounder!

            He is a third stringer/situational player making $8.5m with a cap hit of $6.23m on an expiring contract.

            He has no value at this moment in a trade, in fact due to his contract, he is a liability.

            To trade him would require a productive or valuable asset to be traded along with him.

            I personally hope he can return to his rookie form but highly doubt that will happen in a raptors uniform...if ever.

              Salmons +fields + Hansborough= Terence Jones +Asik + Lin. Toronto eats salary that is not on the cap but gains a piece with Terence Jones that replace Patrick Patterson.

              Asik gets his money and fights it out to be the starting PF with Amir Johnson . Houston saves 10 million dollars of cap space

              Personally don't like this trade , I would go after David Lee or Boozer. Prefer Lee and since everyone thinks Barnes is untouchable I will be pleased to take Draymond Green. The trade works $16.5 million from Tdot for $16.2 for lee and Greene.

                Actually that's not really correct.

                He does have value to a team trying to free up cap space for 2015 free agency. They could send a long-term deal our way and a draft pick for his expiring contract.

                That's about the only situation I can think of though.

                  We need to give him some run next season. If he is productive, then we can sell him high and/or even keep him on our roster.

                  Im leaning towards trading him, but given that the only value he currently has is on the defensive end, it would be better to try and get some sort of offensive showcasing from him early next season, and then seek to trade him while his value is up.
                  I know this may be a bit controversial but I think the Raptors have proven that they're the best team in the NBA from Canada

                    I would imagine that type of deal is done closer to deadline when about 2/3s of his contract is already paid.

                    Also have to consider Raps might wish to be 2015 players as well.

                      I wouldn't be surprised if Masai forces Casey to play him next season, by not getting a replacement for Salmons. Although, I bet Casey would choose to play De Colo instead, assuming we re-sign him. The best case scenario is that Fields contributes enough next season that we can package him in a larger deal as an attractive expiring that could contribute on another playoff team.

                          Backup 3. He's more than capable of playing 15-20 MPG in the right lineups and being very effective, whether he can recover a portion of his prior shooting ability or not.

                            yeah... ish. he needs to be able to offer some offense. right now guys just clog the lane and keep him in their peripheral, it's too easy for the d.

                              Nobody needs to be anywhere near Fields on the perimeter, it would just hurt AJ, JV, Hayes and Patman inside.
