Raptors in talk with 3 teams & Bosh update 

Post#1 » by saham » Thu Jun 24, 2010 7:59 pm

I didn't want to create a thread but I just couldn't keep it to myself. A friend of mine who works for MLSE called me a few minutes ago with this update. Also there is no need to bash me or call me/my source names if you don't believe it then stop reading it right now !

According to him, Raptors are in serious talks with 3 teams. The players involved are Hedo, Calderon and Jack. Indiana is really pushing for Jack but won't just give back the 10th pick for him. They want us to take more salary in return and BC is very hesitant to add more salary as of right now. The other team we are in talks with is Sactown. The trade that was in the works till yesterday was Hedo for Sammy straight up but Kings are pushing for 13th or a future pick and they will include a second round pick in return. BC is calling other teams and looking for a better package.

The third team we are in talks with is GS. BC inquired about Anthony Randolph for an expiring (but GS is in talk with another team that might be including a pick as well, so the deal is pending right now.

Also, we almost acquired Miami's 18th pick but OKC offered a better package last minute. BC is now talking with Chicago and Minnesota for their picks. NO was in the mix earlier but it meant taking back more salary in return so it didn't go anywhere.

As far as the Bosh situation is concerned, Bosh has let BC known that he won't sign with us if BC doesn't bring in a difference maker but he is willing to workout a S&T with another team as he wants his money. BC's interest in Anthony Randolph is an indication that he considers Chris Bosh as good as gone.

Not a ton of juicy information to work with (if these rumors are even true).
But with 3 hours to go, I guess some news is better than no news!
( as long as we take it with a grain of salt)

I actually believe you on some of your insight. The Bosh thing is still up in the air. I hope we still can push for a pick before the 20's so that we can take Whiteside and still take Bradley with the 13. BC should do whatever he can to acquire the 10th pick. Take on salary.. who cares!

Surely Randolph is worth more than an expiring? How can you make such a lowball offer...you'd need to offer a pick or some sort of asset.

Interesting indeed. But I doubt we can get Randolph for just expiring.

if true wow. I wouldn't mind Randolph but that would probably mean Bargs still at the 5 and I don't think Randolph is a defensive stud to anchor the D. Still doesn't make sense SAC looking to flip Sam since they've wanted him for so long but hopefully something goes down this evening.

honeslty im not opposed to keeping hedo .. all we have to do is make him happy , i know this is something no one wants to do but if you bring in the right personel you cant deny he is a game changer.

bosh for bynum

calderon futre considerations for kirk hinrich

kirk / jack
DD / beli
hedo / weems
bargs / amir
bynum / pick 13

that team would be solid defensively and hedo would have the power of "ball" and this would make him happy

Looks like they are going to draft Cousins so the trade does make a bit of sense.
