Lin is one of the few players that I was really hoping would be available. He gives us depth at the PG spot and can hit threes and pass which allows Nurse to play Lowry off the ball more. If the Raptors can add Markieff Morris and a third C like Gortat that will round out the lineup nicely.

You're a moron. If there's no playing time, Toronto isn't attractive, that's all I was saying, moron.


That would mean most playoff teams aren't attractive. Players sign for different reasons. Players trying to earn the next paycheque will find different teams attractive then the ones wanting to win. Be better.


Df pretty clearly said that the Raptors are not an attractive "buyout" market. He is still wrong, but you two are saying the same thing.

I think we're ignoring the larger issue here as to whether or not you are, in fact, a moron. As you can imagine, I am somewhat of an authority on morons, of course due to lifetime exposure on many levels. I may be slipping as I've never even thought you a dullard, but if it is proven that you are indeed a moron, this should not be ignored.

Morris would be very good. Kanter is unplayable defensively but I do like his offensive game quite a bit. Gortat offers less on offense but isn’t a complete black hole . Would still take a chance on one of them as the third centre.

Lin, Morris, and Kanter/Gortat would be a very good buyout haul.

He did and we're not. As my quoted post says, players sign for different reasons. Not signing Ellington or Matthews does not mean anything about Toronto not being an attractive buyout market. Those guys signed for playing time to try and parlay that into their next contract. Most playoff teams wouldn't be able to give them nearly as much time on the court, nor would Indiana if Oladipo didn't blow up his leg.

Raps in the running for Markieff. It's between TOR, HOU and LAL for right now. Maybe others will emerge. He's repped by Rich Paul and I guess LAL is where he ends up. But would be saweet if it were here.

I almost would of preferred moving Ibaka instead of JV. JV worked with the bench better then Ibaka does and I'm hoping Gasol starts getting more time on the court.

JV is useless against: MIL, BOS, and whoever we may face in the West. The only team JV would have helped us against in the playoffs (outside of the first round) is PHI, but even then Gasol has better numbers against Embiid. Ibaka's defensive versatility, shot blocking and switchability is going to be more useful to the Raptors.

The four teams Porzingis had on his wish list of trade destinations were the Nets, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors, according to two people with knowledge of the list who were not authorized to discuss it publicly. The Knicks, of course, traded Porzingis to the Mavericks.

Well, maybe some day.

Porzingis has MVP talent, but his injury history doesn't make it a slam dunk either.

This is a case where it’s a good thing to wait until he hits free agency. Hes basically hasn’t played in two seasons.

Kanter signs with Trail Blazers.

Siakam is insane. His incredible development curve makes sense given how little basketball he's actually played. I'm hoping, and given the way he's played the last few seasons, that growing up playing soccer and track & field means he can keep up his outstanding pace. He's a joy to watch.

Really happy to have Lin. Since Charlotte, he's settled in as a very good back-up.

I think it makes some sense for Kawhi Leonard to sign a one-year deal with the Raptors this offseason and then bolt to LA. I assume this is possible.

Raptors probably have another good year in them, with expiring older players able to make another run. And Kawhi would have an opportunity to show that he is fully healthy. I also think Pascal will go best mode next year and become a true star.

Of course Kawhi would probably get max money regardless, so maybe this is moot.

If OG can play anything close to last night moving forward this won't hurt us, I don't know how likely that is though.

Blows my mind that Andrew Wiggins has had negative VORP in each of his seasons in the league. Not once in the positive range. The dude's utter trash.
