    I voted Andrea, I think we can get something good for him in trade and I want to see Ed Davis get more playing time.

    Everyone knows it's time. Bargs will be a very good specialized piece on an already good team.

    You want to get rid of him? Why? I think for the money he is getting paid, he is providing a great role on this team. I have been impressed with his leadership and locker room qualities.

    I don't get it. Is it the way he looks, how he plays, or just a feeling you get?

    When we got him I expected him to be the 3rd PG. He has exceeded my expectations with his leadership and toughness. This exerpt from this article shows his value with one of the rookies:

    John Lucas III's locker is next to Valanciunas' in the locker room. The two lively new Raptors have developed a great rapport already. After a recent game against the Pistons, the veteran told the rookie that he wanted him to pick up breakfast from McDonald's the next morning and deliver it to him at 7:00 a.m. Valancinuas smiled and calmly looked toward the media herd assembled in front of him. "Help me out, guys? Can you help me?" he asked, and then smiled broadly when the locker room erupted into laughter. Lucas shook his head, laughed to himself and told Valanciunas he was only joking and that since the next day would be their first off day since training camp, he didn't want to see him.

    As Lucas was getting ready to leave the locker room, Valanciunas pointed at the loud gold and silver sneakers that the point guard was wearing. "That's swag," he said with a look of satisfaction on his face as his proper usage of the word was rewarded with smiles around the room.

    From his efforts to try and learn slang terms to his dedication on the court, Lucas has been impressed with the approach Valanciunas has shown thus far.

    "He's going to be a very successful NBA player in this league," Lucas said. "He's young, he's hungry. He's still learning he's like a sponge soaking everything up, but he's not getting frustrated. You say something to him and he's like, 'OK, I got you,' and he corrects it. If he doesn't understand he'll come talk to you and figure it out. When you have a young guy like that, shoot, sky is the limit for them."
    He is a great influence on Jonas: http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba...7849--nba.html

    You've convinced me with John.

    But not with Aaron Gray...

    Andrea. Trade him for someone that can be effective on this team.

    I'd take away BC, because the next GM would probably get rid of Andrea still.

    Trade Bargnani to the Spurs for their GM. I know Greg Pop likes Bargnani.

    i was thinking about that. not the trading Bargnani part, but do the same rules of tampering apply to coaches and executives as do for players? let's offer them 500 million dollars for their GM/Coach duo.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    I believe you have to ask permission from the organization if you want to consider hiring someone in that organization.

    Rogers likes Colangelo as president but I think they would like to see change at the GM position. He'll probably still be on the team.
