      We could also ride with Calderon through this year, and then next year go after an RFA like Lawson, Jennings, Holliday, Collison, Maynor, etc. (Not saying that's a good Plan B, just one of the options).
      Lawson would be awesome, but no way Denver lets him get away.
      Walking like I'm already there.

      • I think Lawson's kind of overrated, personally. Dudes a average if not mediocre shooter.

        • Gotta be kidding me. Dragic agrees to 4 year 34 million with suns. Looks like Raps aren't getting him. Also side note on Lawson, he's actually a great shooter. He was the main reason they pushed a much better LA team to 7 games

          • Dragic to suns, still have a chance with lowry because huston is offering Lin a backloaded contract and will not match the raps offer for fields. This is starting to look like a clusterfuck of hoping and dreaming of who the raps can get in the FA market.

            • It sucks to be a Toronto Raptor fan. All the hype, talk and speculation means nothing right about now.

              Fields as our FA acquisition? Please ....

                  If something isn't brewing at the moment, it will be soon. We have too many SFs (Fields, Johnson, Kleiza), and too many PFs (Davis, Amir, Acy).

                    Agreed. I hate logjams, even though some would argue it's called great depth. I call it good trade pieces

                      I'm hoping the same thing. None are seeming like obvious moves to me ... but BC often surprises.

                      There are still some FA options: Chauncey, Louis Williams, Sessions, Heinrich, Felton ... Not overly tantalizing - still options.

                      And possible trade options:
                      -Collison is playing behind a well-paid George Hill in Indy.
                      -Tyreke may be shown the door, cleaning house for the Cousins-TRob era, with Thomas and Thornton in the backcourt.
                      -Augustin to play with Kemba in Charlotte?
                      -Stuckey going to stay and play SG in Detroit?

                      I'd love to see Jose and Bayless play the dynamic duo, but history hasn't shown a lot of success ... Goooo Jonas!

                      • New York said theyd match any Lin offer because they'd make double just in jersey sales. Which means Houston's gonna wanna keep Lowry. I'm fine with keeping Jose and bayless at point for another year. Maybe we'll start doing what we should've from the start and look for a SF first

                        • I realize that Lou Williams is not a traditional point guard but he is an outstanding offensive player and scorer. He has a great shot fake, draws a huge amount of fouls and can seemingly get to the basket at will. I actually feel that he's a bit undervalued right now. His A/TO ratio isn't that bad and he can defend quicker PGs. I really like his game and he's an upgrade over Bayless.

                            Depth is good when there is a clear pecking order. But since our guys aren't clearly better than anyone else, it just creates a mess of uncertainty.

                              My preference would be to say goodbye to Johnson & Johnson.

                              If we are indeed stuck with Fields (defense/slasher), I think Kleiza (outside shooter/post up) is the better compliment at SF, not to mention the connection to Valanciunas.

                              I assume Davis is the more tradeable asset, especially given all the talk from BC/DC, but between the Fields contract and the liklihood of at least one more big contract being added, I'd much prefer to dump Amir and his fat contract. I still believe in Davis' potential to become a better all around player than Amir, as well.

                              Go with Bargnani/Davis and Fields/Kleiza, with Acy as 3rd option at both forward spots. This is all barring any subsequent moves/additions at the PF/SF spots, of course.

                              • I could see Casey trusting his backup PF minutes to Acy over Davis.
