    Default (Raptors) Mike James.. may very well walk after this year

    Ok it has been brought to my attention after talking with some raptor fans.
    That it is pretty much assumed after this year Mike has a player option , and that he is going to opt out and walk.

    Meaning perhaps is not off limits at all....
    Interested ..? thoughts ?

    One scenario that works salary wise is

    David Harrison and Artest
    for Mo Pete and Mike...

    more than likely that is not enough...

    I really find it hard to assess though Harrison's trade value., although there are few guys his size and ability, along with youth and small salary.
    I am not really all for trading him but that is one scenario

    Why Not Us ?

    Aaron is a throw in to match salaries who's contract is over after this year.
    They Get tinsley who is locked up for the next 4-5 years... instead of losing Mike James for nothing...

    He's a player to be named later, nothing more. IMO, he'd be Eddie Gill if he was on the Pacers.

    He's a solid backup and that is all I was looking for though

    Mike James is a better defender than Tinsley and probably a better scorer as well. That and he's a lot less fragile as the Tin Man.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I would settle for MJames+MoPete+1st round draft pick for Artest+Tinsley.

    Mike James plays solid defense, can hit the 3pt shot and MOST OF ALL he is healthy.

    Its better then the other Raptor trade rumor.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.
