    Default Raptors looking to trade #8 Calderon or Andrea plus Ed Davis for star player.

    That's not a bad package.

    Question:* You still have Dion Waiters going to the Raptors, Chad. But all we keep hearing up here is that the Raptors are likely to move the pick. Any idea who would be available for the 8th pick in the draft?

    Chad Ford:* I agree that the Raptors are looking to move the pick. They've been trying to package it with another young player like Ed Davis and a vet (Bargnani or Calderon). I think they want a big time player on the wing so that they can lure Steve Nash this summer. The guy most people in the league believe they are after via trade is Rudy Gay. If they stay at 8, they want a player who can get to the basket. Thus ... Waiters at 8.

    Bargnani would be nice.
    number 8 would be nice.
    i like Ed Davis

    but are any of them better than Danny? Is the team better? not really. Deeper, yes. More decent players, yes. But Pacers need better players, not more players.

    Andrea numbers are not that bad 19ppg and 5rpg, Calderon average 11ppg and 10apg and Ed David 6.6ppg and 6rpg, not only that but they are adding pick #8, so I disagree with you.

    Does Bird sign in as tmhall11?

    Cuz only he would overvalue Granger to this degree
    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.

    Hell, If Granger could lure Nash, let's just do that.

    I would like to see West, Granger, and Hibbert talking up the team to other players. They are the respected vets now, let's use them.

    Gay, Cunningham, and Pargo for Bargnani, Davis, Johnson, and the #8 would be interesting. It would save Memphis about 2.4 million next season.

    I think Ford mentioned something in his chat about the Pacers trading Collison and #26 for #10. Pacers gain another 1.3 million in cap space and get a chance to get a Jeremy Lamb or Dion Waiters, while the Hornets get a PG that's better than anyone they could get at 10.

    I like the idea of trading collison and moving up... but who are we targeting in the draft?

    I think Kendall marshall is a better pg than collision and he would be available at 10

    GRANGER!! FOR THE WIN.............. IT'S GOOD!!!!!

    I think the Pacers are in a good position to trade Collison and the 26 pick to move up. Anywhere from 10-20

    If we got the 10th pick, I just hope they trade Hans for a later first round like the Cavs 24 and take Royce White. Royce White would be a great backup for Granger and able to guard a lot of positions. He seems to have what we need in that he can dribble and pass...more of a point forward. Opposite of a black hole player, which the Pacers seem to be full of.

    Who's going to be there with the #10 though. We don't need a SG (unless you are looking at trading Granger at some point and moving PG to the SF spot) or a starting SF. I honestly don't like the PGs in this draft. I don't see a PF/C type player other than Sully. Can Sullinger play PF in the NBA? If he could and was there at 10, that'd be good value. Sullinger reminds me of David West.

    The middle of the draft is a bit iffy. There is solid value all around in this draft, but the middle of the draft doesn't make me salivate to get a trade made.

    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Bargs is a good player, but he is everything I dislike about European big men. I don't think he fits into the new direction of the organization.

    Why are we all assuming that the Raptors would consider Granger a "star player"?

    Man Ed Davis is a great young prospect that hits the boards and plays physical down low. Bargnani gives us our own Ryan Anderson that everyone do remember is the mip. You can still trade dc for number 10 so you have two top ten picks a solid first and second unit and you can still go get you a sf to fill out the roster and will have an excellent young team going forward. Something like thunder

    With that kind of package they are probably NOT looking at a Granger calibre player, or even a Hibbert. The Pacers would have to package more than just Granger for TOR to consider it.

    According to the article Toronto is looking to trade either Andrea+Davis+pick for star player or Calderon+Davis+pick for an star player, either way I do not think Danny is enough for us to get either package, we would have to send something I think.

    The Bargnani kid is a nice player but no Hibbert for sure. Plus he is injury prone, it seems.

    Otherwise, Bargnani = Italian Troy Murphy, no thanks.

    Why are you insulting Troy Murphy, he could rebound.
    Otherwise, it's a very apt comparison.
    They shoot, they look lost, they rarely pass, signed to very long 8 figure contracts, and neither can hit within 5 feet around the basket (Bargnani is actually worse at that than Murphy, which takes special talent to achieve for a 7 footer).
