    So the Bynum rumor is back? Bynum may be the most talent player the Raptors can hope to get back. A trade of Bosh for Bynum and maybe picks would be, in my opinion, getting 60 cents on the dollar for Bosh and that is all I am hoping for.

    Like Tim, I'm not a big time Bynum fan but he has immense potential and maybe a change of scenery where he would get more attention from the coaches and could be more of a main contributor would help him mature and grow into the center he's capable of being.

    I don't see the Lakers risking working on a deal while the team is still playing in the playoffs. I think it's highly unlikely.

    BUT, if it is true, while I'm not a huge fan of Bynum's history of injuries and rather inconsistent play, to get a talent like his in a sign and trade would be a huge coup. I don't see them getting a better deal than that, quite frankly. Not even close.

    As for the David Lee rumour, I can't stress how depressed that would make me. I really don't think I could hack watching a front court of Bargnani, Lee and Turkoglu "attempt" to defend anyone next season. I think I literally would have to stop watching them until next summer, after they've won 20-some games and everybody on the team had been fired, new guys came in and gutted the team. If Colangelo really got David Lee (and kept Bargnani), I would have to take back every comment I made in defense and support of him over the last four years. I really would.

    So, if rumour #1 is correct, Colangelo is a genius. If rumour #2 is correct he's an idiot.

    Hi All,
    Newbie over here! Just off topic, I love R.R. and have been following you guys since I can only remember early last year sometime. Only now I have gotten an opportunity to actually give my $0.02USD and interact with awesome Raptor and NBA fans

    Now for this rumor? Only way I'm believing this is if the Lakers struggle continue to harp them throughout the playoffs which would lead them to an early exit (1st/2nd Round) from this year's playoffs. They have a good nucleus in Pau, Bynum and Bryant. With Odom signed to an extension they should have a strong bench as well. (For whatever reason I think Odom IS the Laker's bench...)

    But... if BC can work his magic and someone make this rumor a reality, I'm all for it. I do hope Bosh stays though. Just because he's been the Raptor's consistent producer for so long now. I can't say he's put Toronto on the map per se, but he's kept them on "the team with great potential" lists for a number of years now.

    I heard that too. Pretty amazing....done deal.

    If Bynum can stay healthy which is one the bigger if's in the NBA he is a dominant center who is still getting better and would be a perfect compliment to Bargs. Assuming he can stay healthy, a Bargs/Bynum front line is significantly better than a Bosh/Bargs. Bynum also has a pretty good contract as long as he can stay on the court.

    I don't see why the Lakers make the trade though. While it has been apparent that Bynum and Gasol don't play well together, I don't really see Bosh and Gasol meshing that much more. Could Bosh work in the triangle? I'm all for it, its clearly the best hypothetical trade scenario out there...other than the Bosh for Lebron straight up rumor I heard.

    ESPN Rumour: Bosh for Bynum Done Deal?

    Courtesy of Rhettmatic from the RealGM.

    On the BS Report today, Bill Simmons and Marc Stein kicked around some things they'd heard around the league. These are just rumours, and unsubstantiated ones at that.

    Simmons claimed that he had heard from a "very connected person" who heard from another "very connected person" that the Bosh-Bynum deal is done. Actually done, already agreed upon. Even he seemed a bit skeptical.

    Stein, meanwhile, said he's heard whispering about a Bosh-David Lee deal. He says it makes no sense for the Raptors with Bargnani already here, but says that the Raptors are "pretty big David Lee fans."
