Is Raptors' Bargnani an option?
« on: February 02, 2013, 06:15:12 PM »
I rarely make trade threads, but here is an opportunity that I see that would help us a lot.

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bao5htb

"Raptors president Bryan Colangelo, in the wake of the Gay trade, is now openly acknowledging that he's shopping former No. 1 overall pick Andrea Bargnani."
http://espn.go.com/nba/dailydime/_/page/dime-130201-02/eight-trade-truths-deadline

I'm thinking we send Brandon Bass and Jason Terry and receive Andrea Bargnani and Aaron Gray in return.

I know I will get laughed on for this, but I would still like to know what do you guys think?

I see no good reason to seek to acquire Bargnani.

Not interested at all.  He's got an awful contract and he doesn't address any of our needs.

I'd do it.  Bass has been pretty bad this year and maybe Bargnani would be rejuvenated witha change of scenery.

Andrea Bargnani is garbage.  Overpaid, low-efficiency big man who won't rebound and doesn't play defense. 

Not interested.

No way they give us Bargniani for Bass and Terry. They are trying to trade him to get a player like Pau Gasol, not to downgrade.

Bargnani is hot garbage.

The only reason Gasol is an option is because D'antoni loves stretch fours, hates Gasol and the Lakers are a mess.

Pass.

call him what you want, but the raptors won't trade him to us for Bass and Terry.

Not interested.

He has been the only guy in Toronto capable of scoring the ball ever since he arrived.  Usually when teams have only 1 offensive option, those players have to score at a low efficiency since teams focus all their attention on them.  His efficiency is very similar to Paul Pierce's before the big 3 era in Boston.

Yes, some people don't seem to understand that though. Big guys who can score like Bargniani don't come around often. On a vet team with a good coach, he would be an offensive force.

I want no part of Bargnani. He's been a net negative player for a while now, just hasn't developed his talent at all.
