    One positive out of the covid situation is the Raps free agency outlook will possibly be great. I can't see Serge, Marc or Fred getting big pay days. The salary cap will shrink. Teams will be hesitant as they'll be unsure what the new NBA will be like going forward.

    Wouldn't be a reach to expect all three come back for 1 year deals or 1+1 deals with smaller over all deals than originally expected.

    Serge has publicly stated that he wants to stay in Toronto now, Masai has some big decisions to make.

    Personally, I wouldn't bring him back for longer than a 1+1 deal and Gasol back on any longer than a 1 year deal. If Masai decides to let Marc walk, who might a replacement/upgrade be in FA? I don't think you can gamble on Kyle, Marc, Gasol for longer than 1 year deals after next season, not with the money they make.

    Raps will eventually need to get better but younger with Pascal, Freddy and Norm/OG. Need at least one or two of the bench guys to step up and seize the day and then a real FA coup.

    The $20,000 prize seemed a little light compared to his $12M+ annual salary but who am I to criticize? Couldn't one of his sponsors have thrown in some dough for the exposure?

    My rankings would be:

    1. JV
    2. Marc
    3. Serge
    4. Davis
    5. Rasho

    I have Serge over Davis but it's close. Davis was an all-star as a Raptor, but Serge helped us get a chip. He was amazing in that 7th game against Philly.
    No love for Camby, Hakeem or Willis?

    Wait for it.... Oliver Miller.

    If we can’t resign Ibaka next year can we at least fit his instagram account under the cap? Who knew when the Raps acquired Air Congo (here’s looking at you OP) that he would be that entertaining?

    Bosh would be one of the best C's in the league of he were in his prime right now.

    Gasol's ability to play C in the modern game is pretty amazing given his size and age. He can shoot the 3 but also defends out to the perimeter really well.
    Reading your comments on Gasol gave me a flashback to Bargniani saying in a post game interview that offense was much more difficult than defense. How far this team has come since Andrea's time is so gratifying as a long time fan.

    Given how much the position and game has changed makes it difficult to rank players relative to each other.
    Traditional C - JV - MG - AD
    Modern C - Serge - MG
    Also would CB-4 play as a C/5 today?

    Faried was a disaster defensively. No lateral quickness where he could defend against guards and also no rim protection.
    Too small, lack of a shot and effectively his style of play has for the most part evolved out of the game.

    I remember him on the floor more with Davis at C, as one of the starters.

    Could be wrong but I'd call him a PF mostly. (Shows how much that position has changed.)

    I was thinking with the value of guys like Harrell and Adebayo who are considered mobile bigs being so high, we are lucky to have Serge that still provides those attributes but can also stretch the floor. Also,why isn't Kenneth Faried in the league anymore? Seems like a very Harrell/Bam type of guy.

    Probably because Harrell and Abedayo have a few skills and can play the 5. Faried is undersized, he ends up being a 4 who can't shoot and isn't a very good defender. He does hustle and get you rebounds and second chance points.

    So many teams want to play 4 or 5 out now, I'm sure most just didn't see a fit for him with his limitations, age, and probable cost. He played in China in the fall and got cut in December, he may be injured, news I saw wasn't clear. I'm guessing if he finds himself back in the NBA it'll be for a much smaller role and at a lot less money than under his last contract. Maybe he wasn't willing to take that step back yet, who knows.
