    TRADE IDEA TO IMPROVE RAPTORS:
    w/ Chicago Bulls
    Chicago trades Carlos Boozer for Calderon and Amir Johnson/ Linas Kleiza

    Chicago is committed to Taj Gibson as their future PF and have been looking to amnesty Boozer probably this summer. Calderon is an expiring contract and can fill in as PG until Derrick Rose is back. Amir, especially, would be an adequate back-up PF behind Gibson.

    Toronto has many weakness, but rebounding and post play is a big one. Boozer is a strong defensive rebounder and can score in the paint. He can play with outside-shooting Bargnani, just as he did Okur. A team of Bargnani, Lowry, Boozer, and Valanciunas could be competitive for a low playoff seed in the east. Toronto also has a hard time signing free agents, so Boozer fills a need, as no other All-Star caliber player will sign with them.

    Seems like win-win to me. Agree or disagree?

    Boozer would help on offense but on defense he is the same matador as Bargnani, except Bargs is 7 footer so he at least blocks occasional shot. I think they would rather take Taj Gibson then Boozer. Perfect trade for them would be to trade Bargnani for David West.

    yeah, does not look very good for my bet. They probably lose 3 more before having a chance to win at home vs Dallas or Houston.

    ...I don't even know why I'm contributing to this thread, but ANY team that takes on Boozer for more than the NBA minimum has made a huge mistake!

    Actually that chucker/matador/can't rebound/7footer was their biggest problem. Last two games no selfish "stars" Bargnani and Lowry and team looks much much better. Almost beat Nets, crushed Mavs today by 20. The sooner they trade that joke italian primadona the better for them.

    two wins in a row without Bags and Lowry - coincidence? I do not think so. Bargs especially should sit on the bench for couple month.

    Third win in a row... 25 ast, 6 players in double figures. Thats what injuries to two selfish chuckers do.

    AKMVP, great call, dip-****. It's even worse you're still hoping after they won 3 in a row. They still suck.
