  • Everything 2015 Raptor free agency pursuit (non current Raptor)

    Hey, that's just a fact. This guy fills our needs so much it's crazy.

    Go ahead and offer him a 4 yrs, 60M$ contract.

    Yes, he's a bit undersized. So is Amir. He's a great offensive player and he's a great defensive player too. Not too old, plus our roster is young enough. Averages more than 2 steals per game this year (what?).

    Then re-sign Amir, Lou and Hayes.

    Valanciunas/Johnson/Nogueira
    Millsap/Patterson/Hayes
    Ross/Johnson/Daniels
    DeRozan/Williams/Caboclo
    Lowry/Vasquez/Hanlan

    Moderators, you can delete this thread if you want. But I just wanted to share that I REALLY think this is the guy we should go after, and we have a chance to get him. Discuss.

    Lots of threads popping up about this guy or that guy the Raps should go after. Thought a specific thread for all the non-Raptor dream acquisitions would be appropriate since 99% are going to be pipe dreams anyways.

    Mods feel free to tidy up the breads by merging this one with others or deleting this one period.


    My suggestion would be to target Orlando.

    They have big money tied up in vucevic plus lots of big early draft pick salaries.

    I would be going after Tobias Harris and/or Kyle O'Quinn.

      I'm sure MU will offer a good deal. 4@60 if Millsap agreed is an instant signing. Hawks will overpay IMHO.

        If we got Millsap we aren't bringing back Amir. No money and minutes left. PF would be all Millsap and PPat. JV will be getting 30+ at C. That leaves about 15 minutes of backup C, a portion of which will probably go to PPat (when he's on the floor with Millsap). If we need a 10 minute per game backup C, that seems well below Amir's pay grade.

          If we do get Paul Milsap, then there won't be enough minutes for him, Amir and Patterson and Amir would ask for 8 million+ per season.

          Hayes does one thing well and that is man defense but that is not enough in my opinion to warrant a roster spot as a second big on a winning team. The Raptors should try and get Mozgov as their free agent backup to JV.

          I like Lou williams in certain situations and in the right price. First I want to see how he performs in the playoffs and whether his probable asking price of 6 or 7 million dollars to come off the bench will make sense for the Raptors?! Maybe give that money to free agent Danny Green will make more sense.

              NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Tobias Harris is very injury prone. This guy never had healthy season, it's a risk to give up assets for a player thats injury prone.

                If we get Millsap, we won't be able to afford either of Lou or Amir.

                  O'Quinn would be a great get for backup C. He can stretch the floor, protect the rim, and has decent mobility for Casey's system. Perfect fit if you are looking at low cost additions (in the case where we stand pat and re-sign Lou and Amir and are just looking to use the MLE).

                    Lou + Amir+ TH+ Fields + Hayes = 30M+ there is enough for 3 players @ 10M each

                      Doesn't work that way. 48mil on the books next year. Add Amir and Lou's cap holds and we'd still need another 15mil free to sign Millsap

                        Why could not we bring in Millsap and still bring back Lou and Amir?

                          I think the main way we get ahead is by looking for the crumbs. We should see if we can shake Kyrye Irving loose.

                          Other targets on my bakers dozen include

                          is Von Wafer still playing?

                          but seriously Millsap or bust

                            Amir can barely stay on the court... healthy Amir is worth 8 million... broken down Amir is worth 3 or 4

                              If you want to sign another team's free agent you don't just need cash - you need room under the cap. We only have room under the cap if we let Lou and Amir walk.
