    As Raptors does not need champion next year, they will sell those players. Their players can beat warriors.

    We are no longer obsessed with the Warriors :D

    Tilman cannot even afford his own players. How will he acquire/pay Raptors players?

    Impossible.
    Raptors would never let go of Siakam and Freddie for anything we have to offer. So this thread would be referring to Ibaka, Lowry and Gasol. Those guys are all expiring so a sign and trade for a Shumpert can’t work, why would they trade an expiring for an expiring? If we sweeten it with a first rounder, then that’s not much of a sweetener. Why would they keep paying high bills for one late first rounder down the road? And would we throw in unprotected picks or multiple firsts for Lowry or Gasol, two positions we don’t need? Ibaka would be great to add to the roster but we just went over how near impossible that is.

    Lowry Gasol Ibaka Powell are the 3 the Raps would release (in theory)

    Powell we don't want.

    Capela for Gasol or Ibaka maybe the only realistic possibility.

    Lowry is too expensive we would need to trade Westbrook for Lowry and Powell. Frankly if Westbrook doesn't work here I'd be interested.

    If we could just get Ibaka and then somehow get Durant then we can finish what OKC started.

    Cause we're poor as F***k... !
    Tilman spent all his money on the jet. We're so poor that instead of gatorade our players will be forced to just drink tap water from a hose. He took the Rockets money and also tried to buy Ceasar's palace.
    Tilman=Dolan of the West.
    "Pls sell the team Tilman" = banned from Toyota Center....

    Apparently they want to compete so they won't trade anyone...but maybe that will change if they end up being mediocre or bad.

    I’d trade Capela and Gordon for Ibaka and one of their wings. The reunion would cause a smooth transition for Serge who can actually spread the floor, rebound and defend.

    I think that would only happen if the overall record is not good enough.

    Shut up and listen to Elmo, guys.

    Just wish that Tilman would hire him already.

    Morey has to draft better. You're suppose to be the one that finds siakam and Fred Van not the one that pays them.

    If the Raptors suck, then they could look to buyout Gasol or Ibaka. The Rockets should be interested in either player in that situation. A trade is not happening though.

    Siakam is the only player I want. His $2.4 M contract with 16.9 pts, 6.9 rebs, 3.1 asts, 37% (3P%).


    Make it happen Morey. Lol.

    Tilman makes about 170 million dollars last two years including team value increases.
    According to deadspin, he put profit on his wallets.

    He is not willing to spend money on Gasol or ibaka.

    Kind of a dud post but yeah sure why not? Morey should look at all available options though. Even overseas players.
