Raptors trying to package Ed Davis & The 8th Pick for a SF

http://www.cbssports.com/nba/blog/eye-on-basketball/19289796/report-rapt...

The website is reporting that the Raptors would trade the 8th pick, Ed Davis, and Jose Calderon to Philadelphia. In my opinion this would be a great move for Philadelphia. Have Ed Davis learn the ropes from Brand and it also fills a need. Jose Calderon can backup Jrue Holiday. They can then look to draft any of the following : Dion Waiters, Terrence Ross, Austin Rivers, or maybe even Jeremy Lamb.(To fill the whole of Lou Williams and Jodie Meeks) As far as the Raptors im not sure about this deal. I think they should be through the draft and draft a SF, Barnes would be the ideal. But he'll be long gone, and Terrence Jones is too much of a risk. There in a bad position in the draft. Even with Iggy I still project them as a lottery team next year, maybe in the early teens. What do you guys think of the deal?

The Sixers would not trade

The Sixers would not trade Iggy within the division.

^ Its true most teams don't

^ Its true most teams don't want to trade inside the division, but if it's the best deal then you pull the trigger.

WHY NOT SLIDE DEMAR TO THE 3, AND DRAFT A SG???

Haven't seen much Raptors games, but could they not maybe slide Demar to the 3 (where I believe his skillset is more suited), and a draft a 2 guard with their 8th pick, where one of Lamb or Waiters (or even Ross) should be available?

dumb trade

Dumb trade for Toronto were only going to move backwards if we give up Davis,Calderon, 8th pick for iggy and the 15th. We need a scorer and iggy can't shoot to save his life why don't we just move derozan to his natural position of sf( he's 6'7 220) and draft rivers to play sg we need guys that can score iggy is not a good fit

It would be interesting to

It would be interesting to see demar at the 3 offensively but he is not an excepional defender and with his body would get beaten up on post ups by much larger 3's in all liklihood. Referring to the original post I am not a fan of this deal if I am the raptors. They give up a young and projectable big, a high draft pick and 9mil worth of an expiring contract for a player who may or may not "jump ship" after his contract is finished. I make the deal if toronto is able to get back philes pick or another young asset.

To be honest I think it is safe to say the raptors have many options for the upcoming draft and BC is looking into all of them.

http://www.thestar.com/sports/basketball/nba/raptors/article/1213438--ra...

He’s had conversations with teams that want the pick in a package for an existing player.

“A couple of players of interest that I would tell you would join our team and would have an immediate impact, which is intriguing,” he said.

• He’s had conversations with teams that want the pick, offering a later pick plus a player in return.

“The apprehension is you still want to retain a pick in the draft, so maybe moving back would be an option in some scenarios,” he admits.

• He’s had teams willing to part with a higher pick, but the cost would be significant.

“I have been offered a higher pick for a pretty significant asset, but I’m not prepared to part with that asset,” he said, refusing to name the asset but it’s not a stretch to think it’s 2011 first-rounder Jonas Valanciunas.

• He’s more than willing to make the No. 8 selection if all else fails, even if it turns out to be a player at a position filled on the current roster.

“Even if there’s a stacking principle, or duplication if you will, assets are important in this business in terms of improving your club,” he said. “Picking the best talent might yield something to be used down the road in a transaction.”

It is far from crystal clear.

Demar is not a 3

Don't know where the idea that Demar is a 3 came from, but I sure hear is alot on this site. Right now he needs to bulk up just to play the 2 effectively. I can't see the trade happening.

Does not make sense to add Calderone into that mix, and I doubt Phili would make the deal for Davis and the pick. What else do they need? Maybe James Johnson?

The other rumour going around is the pick, maybe Davis and someone else to the Griz for Mayo. This is more likely to happen, but not as much value for the raptors. Toronto and Iggy would be a great fit for both involved, I just don't see why phili would let him go unless they gety the better end of the deal.

I second igetbuckets99, It

I second igetbuckets99,

It seems Bryan Colangelo is trying to make the quick fix. He needs to be patient and gain assests. In my opinion Iggy isn't worth that much since he has been declining since 07-08 season. If I were the Raptors I would try for Rudy Gay since he is younger and just coming off an injury and has showed to be able to hit that clutch shot and is a slasher with a good stroke.

Raptors shouldnt give all that up for Iggy IMO

demar

Beer if you watch Toronto games you can see demar struggle in ISO situations because he is not a 2 guard his game is more fit of a 3, he doesn't need to bulk up he's 6'7 220 with insane athleticism, we don't have to trade for oj mayo he's a rest. Free agent we van just give him a generous contract because the grizzy can't afford him

Deffence

Deffence is why Iggy would be a great fit. The Raps are looking to be a top 7-10 deffensive team next year and Andre is one of the top in the league at his position. He has tonnes of speed and can create his own scoring. Exactly what the team needs. Just don't give away the farm to get him - that is why it will not likely happen.

The problem with Mayo is he is paid quite a bit more than Iggy as far as I know. Would fit pretty well with Toronto, but they would have to get a good deal to make it happen. Otherwise, not worth picking up the salary.

I would see if I could outbid the Celtics for Jeff Greene and keep their assets if they are looking to spend.

oj mayo

Oj mayo was in the last year of his rookie contract and made around 6 mil. He's now a rest. Free agent, iggy makes about 12 mil a year so he will kill our cap, I like the idea of bringing Jeff green as he can space the floor with his shooting

Jeff Green

Green would be a nice idea, but I do think the C's are still the #1 suiter there. The problem is there just are not that many great options right now for them to fill the 3 spot, and I can't imagine getting either Iggy or Mayo without paying a premium. 2 weeks ago I could not see the Raptors taking the 8th pick. Now I don't see them making the trade unless something comes up last minute on draft night.

Stop believing this

Stop believing this propaganda. Bryan Colangelo makes some bad decisions, but trading the 8th, ed davis, and jose for Iggy would just be foolish.

Doesn't work for either

Doesn't work for either team.

Raptors are rebuilding and Iguodala is too old to start building around at this point. It would be nice to trade Calderon, but giving up the #8 pick in this draft is just silly.

The 76ers are probably looking to package players for a star scorer. Trading Iguodala makes no sense for them. He's the glue that keeps their amazing defense together. If they're going to trade Iguodala they might as well blow the whole team up and start rebuilding.

Jeff Green does not fit with the Raptors rebuilding effort, either short term or long term.

I know people who will neg

I know people who will neg this but there is no one on the sixers current roster that is rumored available is worth the 8th pick let alone multiple players. The Raptors have the opportunity to put together a very strong young nucleus taking on veterans for short term gain is short sighted and a typical Colangelo move. Look at his track record Jermaine O'neal, Hedo both well past there primes and quick fixes. Even the year after they won the Atlantic division he screwed up the team chemistry trying to tweak the roster which he has admitted was a mistake. He has no patience to build a team he just wants to be in the playoffs. Instead of building a team that can compete for a championship for many years he builds team for short term success, a couple of good years then its start over again.

He should be trying to aquire more young talent, and build a strong core a la OKC. BC should be try to trade Davis or Amir who are essentially the same player for a first round pick in the 20's even if they have to package them with 37th pick. I am pretty sure they would have opportunity to get Wroten. They could end with a core of Barg, Val, Demar, Lamb or PJ3(I think he will be a 3 in nba), Wroten. Plus they would still have James Johnson, Amir or Davis, Calderon, Klezia. Plus they would still have financial flexibility.

??

There are actually two players on Philly worth lottery picks, Jrue Holday and Iggy. To my knowledge Jrue Holiday isn't being offered and regardless that trade of Calderon, Davis + 8th pick is way to much for rebuilding Toronto. Being a Raptors fan I'd like to see them keep their pick and get better through the draft.

1) Draft a scoring 2 guard. I feel Lamb, Rivers, Waiters etc would be good fits and immediate help to the roster. I like the idea of Derozan sliding to more natural 3 position, but the only problem with that is he would have nights where there are nightmare matchups, where he has to guard Durant, LeBron and the other elite SF's.

2) If Lillard is on the board we take him. Lillard adresses our PG situation and is our PG of the future. Through free agency we find a scoring 2 guard (OJ Mayo) and slide Derozan to the 3 regardless.

Raptors are in a really good position to start making some noise in the East unless Colangelo finds a way to screw this up again.......

Holiday is worth 8th pick but

Holiday is worth 8th pick but he is not available. Iggy is not worth it because his salary of 13 million plus is to much to take on. At 8 you can get a player with same potential for much less that will be able to grow with the team. If we were already a playoff team looking to make final step and Iggy would do it that would be fine. By the time Raptors are really getting good his contract will be up and able to walk.
