    As a point of clarification, they looked awfully good after game 1 against Orlando and I almost bit and thought for a moment we were finally seeing evidence we were improved by that trade, and then last series happened. That was not encouraging.

    Now I'm not blaming Gasol, he didnt trade himself. And the Raptors could wake up and roll through the ECF'S. The point of adding a new ingredient is to improve the recipe, and I'm waiting patiently for a better dish.

    I feel the fan base has rose coloured glasses on with Marc. When we all have to watch him through 82 games next year I think the fan base is going to echo a lot of what we’re venting about. Right now the hope is still that we got him for the playoffs and he will prove his worth at some point.

    Lopez simply can’t go off again the way he did in game one either.

    If he was an expiring and we got to keep Leonard, we'd still be over the cap... At least he will now become a large expiring and can be traded for another high-salaried player next year if things aren't looking good.

    Would he be tradable at 25$ million ? I guess if he’s expiring it can be done, but we’re talking about a guy who doesn’t rebound well, is extremely limited offensively and is aging worse than my grandmother with a pretty high price tag. I dunno man

    1000%. Media is this town sold his impact and acted like it was found money.

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

    I don't know guys. I haven't been all that disappointed in him. I feel he's delivering exactly what I expected.

    He's more tradeable than if he wasn't here at all. If his contract expired this year, we'd still be over the cap and couldn't sign anyone, but we also wouldn't have someone to match a high-salary trade.

    We just gave up something decent for him. I think it's possible to get something for him next year if we decide to go that way. But, then, I don't think he's nearly as bad as you make him out to be. I'm still quite glad to have him over JV in these playoffs.

    That’s true. A trade asset is better then no asset at all. I can dig that angle
