It'd have to be more than that from Miami because of salary. Jalen for Jones and Wright would work, but Marshall makes another $4.5M, a salary slot that is hard to fit with the rest of Miami's roster.

Just seeing "Jalen Rose trade rumors" brought me back to 2001, when he was traded, a good day indeed

Wasn't this before the Carter thing? Is it still hot?

Maybe they should swap ENTIRE ROSTERS with a team next! Didn't that happen like 40 years ago?

I think the Blazers would love the lax cannibis laws in Toronto!

Actually, to me, the rumor makes even more sense now. Gives them youth and a couple of backcourt guys to go with the new rontcourt guys they just got.

If Miami gets Donyell, we're in BIG trouble come playoff time.....if we get that far.

Toronto could get young in a hurry with some first round picks to come. Problem being, it's Toronto. How patient will Canadians be about a rebuilding effort?

I wonder how much they even pay attention to the Raptors, given that Canada is more of a hockey country than anything else (the NHL lockout must be hell for them). Look at how long the Montreal Expos slowly shriveled on the vine with perennial celler-dwellers in MLB before the franchise finally left.

OTOH, I bet the Toronto fans would've loved it if the Raptors could've signed Canadian Steve Nash in the off-season...

Jalen is not Sam Mitchel's type of player

I wonder what coach would want Jalen. He seems like a nice guy but it doesn't seem like any of his coaches were ever sorry to see him go.

now that Toronto has Zo. Miami's interested in Jalen and Zo wants to go to a contender, plus Miami should love to have him back.

If Miami gets Jalen and Zo, how good would it make them be

I think Carroll Rosenbloom made the trade with Bob before he just walked out into the ocean and committed suicide. Basically it only amounted to a complete change of ownership but the teams were indeed traded.

Here is a quote from Sam Mitchell after tyhe game last night, not too difficult to figure who he is talking about.

(On their last possession) "We had the play set up with a couple of picks to get a couple of guys open and Matt (Bonner) set a great pick and Rafer (Alston) was wide open. Why we didnít swing the ball back around to him, I donít know, I just donít know."

After some of the shots he hit last year in Miami I would be getting him the ball at the end of the game.
