Raptors Game Day - Rumors edition

The latest Raptors rumor has the Raptors shipping Bargnani and Parker to Dallas for pothead Josh Howard and DeSagna Diop. There would have to be some other pieces included to make salaries match but this is a decent deal for the Raptors.

It leaves them short at shooting guard losing Parker. I don't know how I feel about having to watch Kapono or Graham start every night. If they can shore up the SF position and get value for Bargnani and then maybe bring back Delfino then they should make this deal.

Diop's contract is not attractive at all he's owed $5.85 million for the next 3 years.

We'll have to see how this all plays out but the lure of Howard on the wing is an interesting one. I'm not sure this is the deal BC has in mind to make him give up on Bargnani.

UPDATE - It appears that this deal isn't even or never was close to happening. After more thought I'd have to say that is probably a good thing
