    Lets also not forget he is a 29 year old shooting guard in a contract year. He is looking for max money and will likely get it or at least very near it. There is no reason to assume his numbers won't drop off as well his talent in the years to come. Even if he wanted to come, the raptors would be wise to avoid him.

    Calderon + Joe + Bosh = core to a contender

    No way for the Raptors to get Joe Johnson though. They don't have enough attractive assets to tempt Atlanta into a sign and trade + Joe Johnson will have several good offers elsewhere (Miami, Chicago, New York) so it would be difficult for Toronto to get him to agree to sign in the first place.

    Many players hold Toronto in very high regard. Apparently Paul Pierce loves it here, and I saw an interview with a bunch of players a while ago, where they were asked what the best NBA cities are. They answered New York, Miami, LA, Chicago and Toronto. I'm not saying every player feels this way, but the city does get respect around the league. Also, it's not even the coldest NBA city, people just assume that because its in Canada.

    ummm, joe johnson isnt coming to toronto. toronto is like a cold hamburger, you see it in the fridge and you think about it remotely but then figure out that you can just warm it up and have something better. in this case that better situation is around 28 other teams.

    My money is on Joe Johnson either staying with the Hawks or moving to NYC for added attention and more importantly, play for his old coach D'Antoni. Speaking of NYC, said it before and I'll say it again, I think if the Knicks can't land one of the big three they're going to focus their attention on Joe and Amare. Mike, Joe and Amare reunited in NYC. Book it!

    bayanmn your have a very good point about crawford but yeah my hole scenario is based on colangelo being able to move one of our bad contracts and he does have a history of covering up hes mistakes so well see.

    But Doc is right. Colangelo's bad decisions in the past have put us in a bad situation financially. We can't really do much, unless major changes happen with respect to moving a major piece (Hedo, Jose, Andrea)

    Even though he's been great coming off the bench, Atlanta might think Jamal Crawford is more than capable in being a starter, so they might not be willing to pay so much to keep Joe Johnson.

    Joe Johnson would be a pipe dream for us. The exact mold of a player that we desire and that Bosh would love to have play along side him. Problem is, unless we can find suitors for Hedo, Jose or Andrea, signing Joe isn't feasible financially.

    What makes Raptors more attractive than Atlanta??
    Atlanta is proven a winner/contender, the only thing Joe Johnson might leave is the city (low attendance) and money!!!
