    Do you have a source?

    The David West Contract: 2 years, $20M.

    The Raptors would need to find a taker for Calderon with little to no salary coming back to make that offer.

      ak47 is reliable. Solid backup or OK starting 5.

        its on Hoopshype now. What's our cap situation? I know we can't amnesty anyone.... Do we have the full mid-level? I say we go after him

          ak47 would be a decent fit at the starting three. on an unrelated sidenote, we'd have the whitest frontcourt in the whole NBA if this actually happened.

            Raps have 12 players with $1.2M in cap room (including JL3), a $2.5M room exception (likely going to Gray), and minimum contracts.

            Only way to get AK47 is to trade Calderon with little to no salary coming back.

              I've heard if he's coming back it's to play for the Nets so he can play under Prokhorov. We can't do a sign and trade since he didn't play last year.. so we'd have to trade Calderon without getting any assets back.. I'm sure BC's been trying to do that all summer already.

              I don't see how we can get him.

                All via HoopsHype.com:


                Former Utah Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko has decided to return to the NBA for next season, he told R-Sport on Tuesday. Ria Novosti



                Teams that are possible right now without any transaction to free up cap space assuming he signs for more than the MLE:

                Minnesota
                New Orleans
                Cleveland

                  Yep. But damn, wouldn't that be a great pickup?

                  I feel that he's not too popular on these boards, but Kirilenko would be beautiful at the 3 for us. He's just 31, and has career numbers of 12 ppg/ 6 rpg / 2 bpg / 1.4 spg. Would love to see him here, if the money's right.

                      2yrs $20M? I think that's not too bad. You have to pay a little more for short term deals. Of course this is meaningless if Calderon couldn't be moved for no salary.

                      EDIT: Woops, you said exactly that earlier. Reading failure. Anyways, I think this would be a good move if possible.

                        Since he has proclaimed he wants to come back to the NBA and the options are certainly limited now and making the assumption he wants more than MLE ($5M per year), maybe $8M gets it done? $9M? Definitely wouldn't go over $10M and definitely wouldn't go over 2 years unless year 3 was a team option.

                        In any Calderon trade,
                        at $8M Raps could take back $3.7M
                        at $9M Raps could take back $2.7M
                        at $10M Raps could take back $1.7M
                        this assumes HW.com numbers are correct.

                          Looks like a real long shot that we'd sign him, but who knows?

                            Oh yeah.... total long shot at this point. Especially since he said he'd make a decision in the next day or two on a team (assuming the quotes for HoopsHype.com are accurate).

                              I don't know if he'd be much of an improvement over fields. Even if he was he wouldnt be for long then he'd have to fight kleiza for minutes. I wouldn't mind if we got him, I just think if we did we shouldve got him at the beginning of the month. Don't know if he's a good fit anymore
