Raptors Still Making Trades?

The deal is still in its early stages, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Colangelo landed (another international player) JJ Barea instead of Marcus Banks, though: “Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo’s got another deal bubbling, one that would send guard Marcus Banks to the Dallas Mavericks for Matt Carroll, adding a little long-term salary but providing coach Jay Triano with a shooter that he could use deep on the bench. I’m warned — and therefore so are you — that the proposed transaction remains in its relative infancy and if this summer’s proven anything it’s that nothing’s done until it’s done. But just as we suspected, Bryan is thinking of moving a salary for one that’s a bit longer but not that much more expensive in the long haul.”

    Would this officially make the raptors whiter than the pacers?

    As much as I like Matt Carroll and his 3′s, doesn’t he just do all the same things as Belinelli? But whatever, having him is still better than Marcus Banks sitting on the bench.

    LOAF: I’m a terrible racist and refuse to watch white teams, of course.

    their tryin to make toronto a european based team…mayeb cause they figure they can make more mone that way…or Colangelo is part of the mafia and has his on plans…but the facts is…raptors aint goin no where until the get back a vince carter or a mcgrady…or players who play BASKETBALL

  • Migs

    Nope, I think the Pacers still have more white players, although the Raptors definitely have more non-American players

    Jose Calderon
    Andrea Bargnani
    Hedo Turkoglu
    Rasho Nesterovic
    Marco Belinelli
    Patrick O’Bryant (mixed?)

    Troy Murphy
    Mike Dunleavy Jr.
    Tyler Hansbrough
    Jeff Foster
    Travis Diener
    Josh McRoberts

    Funny posts. Lets be honest, nobody really cares about the Raptors unless they get some all stars on there besides the Raptor himself aka Chris Bosh.

    The Pacers should have a good old fashioned racial feud with the Celtics.

    Trade Bosh please!

  • http://www.sonicbids.com doyouwantmore

    Bosh will be a Knick. I hope the Raptors bounce back.

  • tm

    the day bosh leaves the raptors will be a better team

    This is a good trade cause the raps now have 3pg,3sg,3sf,3pf and 3C

    foreigners and white guys are not the same in my book.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    i didnt know that the two terms were mutually exclusive.

    You Americans are so ignorant.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Actually, I’d say Colangelo has partly given up his Euro-league love. This year he actually drafted Demar DeRozan, as opposed to Rafael Arujo II.

  • CJK

    Yeah i’m with lemay. “white guys” are white americans or at least canadiens (STEVE NASH). Pacers have more whiteys than the Raptors

  • la huey

    how are the europeans on the raptors not white? do you not consider dream, mutombo, or deng to be black?

  • davidR

    niQ, belinelli will show you how talented he is. still puzzled on why the warriors would trade him for mutherufcking devean george

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Hedo Turkoglu is not white.

    3 being your favourite number then?

    SO would they need to all be wearing numbers that are multiples of 3…? Or feature the digit 3 in them..?

  • lawlow

    arujo was pre-colangelo era

  • LOAF

    knew you were Jukai could just tell…

    well europeans are white, the i am not sure what race you hedo would be consider as…

  • LOAF

    the grammer on that comment was terrible….

    “though i am not sure what race you would consider hedo to be”

    (Michael) Jordan of Turkey. I hope for future drafted players sakes that none are from Jordan and become busts, then get branded “The Turkey of Jordan.”

    The black/white thing is a bigger concern for Americans. And they tend to use the term ‘race’ as if they knew what it meant. Some of us would just rather watch some good b-ball.

    Raps: please do well this season!!!!!!!!!!

    The only reason the raps have so many euro player is Toronto is the most euro city in north america. The same reason it is hard to get american players there, they say it is cold, but I would rather winter in Toronto than Minnisota
