Raptors Offseason - Day before the draft Trade thoughts

24 hours until the draft and its pretty clear that the Raptors have narrowed their choices to 5 guys. Holiday, DeRozan, Johnson, Hill and Henderson.

To me none of these guys help this team win now. Sure there is upside and down the road they could be contributors but in a draft full of backups I would try to flip the pick for somebody that can start.

Therefore I propose the following deal.

Toronto Trades:

#9 overall pick
Kris Humphries (3.2 million 1 yrs remaining)
Nathan Jawai ($442,000 only partially guaranteed)
Quincy Douby ($1.42 million 1 yr partially guaranteed)
Marcus Banks (4.2 million 3 yrs remaining)

Detroit Trades:

#15 overall pick
Richard Hamilton (10.8 million 4 yrs remaining)

Now this deal looks like a steal for the Raptors but keep in mind Hamilton's contract is terrible. He is probably at or a year past his prime and his contract in a couple years will be tough to swallow. Detroit wants out of the deal and would immediately renounce the options on Jawai and Douby saving themselves 2 million this year to help sign Gordon and Boozer. They'd gain a top 10 pick as well.
Banks Deal while awful is shorter than Rip. Humphries can help off the bench and his deal as well is only 1 more year at a reasonable rate.

To me one of the biggest concerns for the raptors is that they have 4 million on the books for 3 yrs with banks ANYWAY. So consider the first three years of Rips contract to be at 6 million (because they'd be paying banks 4 if he stayed).
Plus they could grab a backup PG like Lawson with the 15th pick.

If the pistons aren't willing to bite then BC should buy a late first rounder and flip that pick to the pistons in the deal.

Just a thought.

We'll all be watching tomorrow.

Roger Ebert Saw Transformers 2 what did he think...

“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” is a horrible experience of unbearable length, briefly punctuated by three or four amusing moments. One of these involves a dog-like robot humping the leg of the heroine. Such are the meager joys. If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination.”

The Perez Hilton vs John Mayer Twitter Faceoff


I woke up this morning to find my Twitter feed polluted by singer John Mayer, which
is not uncommon. But instead of his usual aimless musings, he was repeatedly @replying blogger Perez Hilton.

Hilton, who was punched by Black Eyed Peas general manager Polo Molina at a MuchMusic Awards afterparty, has been using his Twitter to communicate about the incident. Mayer started insinuating that Hilton has been making a bigger deal than necessary and that he should've known that calling a certain derogatory term would get him in trouble.

At first, Hilton agreed with Mayer, but then it escalated. Some highlights below:

@PerezHilton Not true. In fact I'd like to train you in Krav Maga. Then you'll have the situational awareness not to get in someone's face.

@johncmayer I cant DM u and Im not trying to play this out publicly. B well. I dont wish u harm. I talk s*** but I sincerely wish no 1 harm.

@perezhilton from the heart, what you experienced these last 24 hrs is a profound lack of control. You can't blog the world, my friend.

@johncmayer I totally did experience a lack of control - on the part of Will.I.Am and his road manager! I agree with you 100%!

@perezhilton people don't want to see you hurt, they want to see you experience something equalizing.

@johncmayer And people DO want to see me hurt. That's what I've been reading over and over again. But it's cool. I'll be back 2 normal tomm.

@PerezHilton Yah, you're not getting it... OOH! OK. It's like the Matrix. You live in the Perez Matrix. You wrote the program, you can fly.

@PerezHilton you might have a gash on your face for a few more days, but the real healing? It's happening right now.

@johncmayer Once again, we agree! I live in my own world. And in my world, I would never punch someone. And in my world, that's illegal!

@johncmayer Also, in my world, if someone repeatedly talks shit about me, I ignore them or TALK as much s*** back. But that's just me.

@perezhilton now you sit down behind that Tandy computer and you hash out a Doogie diary. Be sure to pause, think, and keep typing.

@PerezHilton Good night Perez, you dumb s***. #perezisokbyme

Raptors Offseason - Coming up on Draft night

The Raptors surprised nobody yesterday when they announced that they had tendered a qualifying offer to restricted free agent Count Chocula err I mean Carlos Delfino.

The offer at this point is nothing more than a formality for the team to retain Delfino's rights. Meaning should another team want to make him an offer they now have the right to match it.

Colangelo was on the Fan590 morning show today and said basically that its almost a lock that Delfino is back and that the only issue would be figuring out the numbers.
If they can get Carlos under contract for say 10 million over 3 yrs then this is a good deal. Delfino adds depth to the bench at a position they were very weak at last season.

Yesterday also marked the cities introduction to the newest Raptor Reggie Evans. Evans said all the right things and I believe that he is going to have a huge impact on this team. He has no idea what he is in for with the fans here if he just plays the way he has in his career. Toronto Fans LOVE his type of game. Just look at how they loved Oakley, Garbo and JYD. Evans is a player in that mold and exactly the type of player they need.

This leaves only a few roster spots available for the upcoming season as they are likely to add to their depth on draft night a week from Thursday. On the Fan Colangelo basically narrowed his selection to 5 guys. DeNar DeRozan, Gerald Henderson, Johnny Flynn, Jrue Holiday and James Johnson. Unless something happens in the top 8 where a team swaps a pick or the Raptors move up I fully expect one of those names to be called at 9 when the Raptors pick.

This leaves the team with only a few options and the most intriguing to me at least is what they should do regarding Sean Marion. Marion is likely to command a salary in the 7-9 million a year range. I don't think of the teams out there with cap space (Memphis, Detroit, Portland, Utah) that he would fit with those teams so regardless of whether he likes it or not Marion's best bet it to sign with Toronto and hope for the best. I don't see Colangelo going after anyone else with this money so Raptors fans better get ready for 3 or 4 years of the matrix.

The last thing that will have to be determined is what to do to fill out the bench. Its unclear whether Douby and O'bryant will in fact be back but considering they were in working out in Raptorland yesterday I am venturing a guess that they will be back. That said there would be only a couple of roster spots left to fill and not a lot of money to do it with. There have been rumblings that they are interested in bringing Rasho Nesterovic back and I'm hoping they can do so with the vetern's minimum.

I am also hoping that they can bring Anthony Parker back. AP showed us last season that although he may no longer be a starter in the league his diverse skill set would make him a valuable bench guy. I expect teams like Cleveland and possibly Philly to take a long look at AP and if this is the case he may sign elsewhere for more money.

Overall the biggest thing for Colangelo this off season is that he HAS to get the draft pick right. He basically HAS to get somebody that can start at SG/SF or at least play heavy minutes and contribute. If he doesn't then this team will be in the lottery again next year.

Raptors - Off season begins

Brian Colangelo finally righted another wrong this week sending Jason Kapono to the Sixers for Reggie Evans. Two seasons ago Colangelo spent the teams mid level exception on Kapono even though it was clear the team needed an athletic wing player. At that time players like Pietrus and Matt Barnes were available and after watching Pietrus in the playoffs if soured me even more knowing that Kapono was here instead of him.

Getting value back for Kapono is nice to see. Evans brings a lot of things that this team is lacking. Rebounding, Grit and toughness all at a reasonable salary. He's not a flashy player and hasn't won any three point shooting contests but he WILL help this team. The only downside I can see with Evans is that his offensive game is a liability and he is a terrible free throw shooter which makes it difficult to have him on the floor late in close games. Overall though I am happy with this deal.
It fills a huge need for the Dinos and saves them some cap space as well.

What I'm not happy with are the rumors and BC's statements that he intends on bringing Marion back. Unless its for 5-6 million a season I don't see this as a good move. If Marion gets 8-10 million a season for 3-4 seasons I view that as a terrible investment. Marion can't shoot or create his own shot. He runs the floor well and is a good rebounder for his position but I can't see how investing that kind of money on a guy who rely's mostly on his athleticism is a smart idea. Marion is getting older and his legs aren't likely to be the same 2 seasons from now and the back end of a contract on a guy like marion could be similar to the Kapono deal all over again. I like marion in Toronto but it has to be at the right price and I have a feeling that BC is going to have to overpay to keep him.

The Draft is certainly going to be interesting as I fully expect BC to buy a second late first rounder. Having 2 picks in this draft is a great way to add depth to the roster with reasonable contracts.

The other major question mark is at Shooting Guard. BC has made it clear that he is seriously looking at bringing back Delfino and again I'm not sold on this idea. I think if BC wants to do that it has to be at the right price. Delfino to me isn't that big of an upgrade over Anthony Parker. Speaking of Parker I am hoping that he is willing to take a pay cut to stay with the team. He seems like he is a great locker room guy and would be great to have coming off the bench. I hope the same for a guy like Rasho Nesterovic. Bringing him back to backup Bargnani at Center would be great to see.

My final thought is regarding the rumors on Bosh. We all knew there would be a lot of trade rumors regarding CB4 and I was not surprised that he isn't extending his contract and will wait until 2010 to make a decision. I do think that BC is being closed minded to not consider dealing Bosh. This is an opportunity to make a deal to get 2 or 3 KEY players and possibly draft picks. Bosh stock has never been higher and you will NOT get better value for him at any other time. If I were BC I would look at a deal with Miami for Beasley, Haslem and Blounts expiring contract (8.5 mil) and a first or 2nd round pick for Bosh.

Bosh is pretty much going to give you 20 and 10 every year. I think Beasley can be a 17-8 guy possibly better (he avg 14 an 5 last yr in 24 min a night). Why wouldn't you make this move? What do you really lose other than a big name. The Raptors would get a guy to replace Bosh who is younger and has the potential to be great. They Gain Cap space for 2010 and they get Haslem and possibly something of value in the Draft.
