    For Raps to keep him it would take more then the MLE. Think 3 year 18-20 million.

This team is below average and when it's all said and done will most likely be a 10-12 seed which is the worst spot you want to be as an NBA franchise, and where we've been for the last several years even with Bosh.

    We still have Lowry who is a starting PG anyways. If we had some scrub backup like JL3 as the only PG left then I'd definitely understand keeping Jose, but we need to sell high on him and stack up on an asset or draft pick. We traded a high lotto pick for Lowry, so we should "give him the keys" like we said we would and ride n decide with him the next 2 years.
    All of this.

    i agree that's the salary range and in my opinion he will have plenty of options. when i said not that much i just meant it won't be anything crazy like 10+

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

    If Jose wants to sign at a discount, no more than 3 years, then I'm all for keeping him.

    What kind of favor and why should he do that? The Raps would have to pay more then the MLE to keep him.

    I think you try and get rid of Bargnani. Calderon I am all for keeping around as long as BC has a talk with him to find out of he would actually be interested in staying around next year on a reduced salary compared to his current one.

    If he is I would keep him because of what he seems to bring to this team. If he isn't interested in coming back then I explore some options with him. I would not be in a rush to ship him out though.

    Bargnani is the guy to trade somehow. All I want is another C (backup acceptable) and anything else we can acquire with Bargnani is a bonus.

    You are probably right, I just think he's such a great team guy BC could convince him that trading him to the Jazz as a rented player for a playoff push would be in both our best intrests... Then he signs back for MLE. It's all we would have for him unless we could find a third party to help sign him. Just a pipe dream of getting Al Jef here...

    You think we've made an offer comparable to Washington?

    My source said that BC already made an offer however its up to Memphis.

    I think Memphis are waiting to hear a better offer from other teams.

    The expiring contract of Calderon and Ed's promise are the main selling point. I think they want also to deal Randolph eventually.

    We need to sell high on Calderon while we can. I've been saying this

    Answer ... No. Lowry is a better player, but Jose makes the other 4 on the floor better. Our players are starting to get some recognition around the league. Jose is doing what I had hoped Nash would do.

    I agree with this. Canzano, good thread. We're at the addition by subtraction stage now with Bargnani and getting back a big return isn't essential. He's the only one I think needs to be moved, and mostly so there's no disruption in the flow of the team when he gets back. What I especially don't want though is an attempt to get an "impact" player, or someone that was great a few years ago (Gasol) or is the best of a bad lot of SFs (Gay). We don't need another "Hedo" move. Sink or swim with this roster, try to acquire more picks.
