  • Bosh Refusing to Talk to the Raptors?

    All hearsay obviously, but if there is an ounce of truth to it, then how does this bode well for us when it comes to a "sign & trade"? I know everyone's saying he won't turn down the option of making max money, but what if he does turn it down and sign outright with someone else? That would mean we'd have about $6.5 to $7 million in cap space this summer. Hardly enough to entice a decent free agent.

    Where do the marquee players stand as of right now? We have split them into five categories based on how likely they are to leave their respective teams this summer.

    it's better than getting someone hwo will just take up minutes from other players and aren't worth it like beasley. he'll just take away minutes from davis, amir, etc.

      I know. Acquiring Beasley is my only concern this summer. We dealt with attitude last season with Hedo, we don't need it again with someone like Beasley who has a reputation of a poor work ethic too.

        They may view him as a trading asset down the line. As in bring him in, let him pad the stats on a lotto team and then ship him out at a much higher price.

          Sign and trade is a 2 way street, if he show BC respect by working with him to get Raptors something of value, then we will in turn work with him to get him that extra $30 mil that only we can give him, Its simple as that.

            Please please please please do not sign CB back. If his other options don't pan out you know he will consider us a "fallback" and just take the paycheck. We need this guy outta here.

              As far as him not returning calls, I doubt that means anything in regards to the Raptors being able to get a S &T done. He knows nothing can happen until the 1st at the earliest. The Raptors know he's going to weigh his options so there's no real need to speak at all.

                Look at it another way:

                Once Bosh confirms for the Raptors that he's not coming back, but that he'll cooperate on a sign-and-trade to get a max deal, what is there left to say until he decides where he wants to play?

                Until he picks a team to play for, all the Raps can do is wait... just like the rest of us.

                Yeah, I know. I'm just a giddy optimist, eh?

                  i'm not worried about beasley so much as a player because he's decent but if he's going to be a bitch like hedo if no one wants him now and we acquire him good luck moving him we'd haveb to buy him out if he accepted that.

                    I used to think there was no way he would ever turn down that extra year and accompanying 30 million for the super max, but it is looking more and more like Bosh and Bron might just walk to either Chicago, New York or Miami.

                    The fact that people still think he might come back is pretty insane, getting back anything at this point has to be considered a viable alternative. Bron seems to be the one making the decisions for everybody and if he tells Bosh to abandon the S&T I gotta believe Bosh will obediently tow the line. Having said that, of all the stars who might leave Bosh's departure has been accepted for the longest time and thus there would be the least animosity between the breakup of star and organization.

                    I personally have no anger towards Bosh, I think he handled this situation poorly, but the next 72 hours will dictate his raptor legacy as villian or super villian.

                      Yes, what do the Raptors need with the best player in the history of the franchise and one of the hardest working players on the team?

                        Best player in the history of the franchise.
                        He sure has done a great job getting us to the promised land err wait umm...
                        Well, at least he hasn't been shy about NOT wanting to stay here in the media.
                        That's my kinda 'best' player.

                        More like 'longest tenured, overpaid, #1 choice on offense/stat padding, lax defense having celeb wannabe".

                          One of the worst parts about this whole Bosh thing is that Toronto's image is taking a beating. Every article (sourced or not) basically has a line in there saying what a crappy situation the Raptors really are, failing to realize that Chris Bosh was the focal point for the last four years of that crappy situation.

                            This is where Tim will start bashing BC for not doing enough...blah blah.

                            And Chris Bosh is a distant second to the best player ever for the Raptors.

                              I don't know Bosh might tend to be a bit of an endothermic personality.
