by Peter Walsh / @goinginsquad

    What happened to the live chat?

  • Peter Walsh

    Technical difficulties.

  • http://twitter.com/niQknacks niQ

    Raptors got Telfair huh?

  • http://twitter.com/niQknacks niQ

    ATL pulled out? So they’re just going to let Josh Smith walk to Houston in the summer for nothing?

  • analfissures

    Really interested to see what OKC got for Maynor and the details of the JJ Redick trade as well.

    2nd round pick or cash i’m guessing

  • RKJ92

    Ronnie Brewer to the Thunder for a 2nd round draft pick was SUCH a steal.. omg

  • analfissures

    That’s what I figured, but it would be cool if they got some small-time player. Adding Thabeet this year has proven to be a positive thing, so I was hoping they’d snag somebody else from the Blazers.

  • RKJ92

    I dont even know why we need him if we have John Lucas already.. but I’m guessing he wont get much playing time anymore, and Sebastian Telfair will be our new backup behind Lowry

  • RKJ92

    I cant believe Bargnani never got traded.. I’m pissed lol

  • RayJr

    Trade deadline didn’t turn out to be such a big deal after all. No blockbuster or conference changing moves. Yaaaaawn…

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    he’s untradeable.

  • http://twitter.com/niQknacks niQ

    No one wanted Bargnani except Chicago. And that’s only cause they wanted to get rid of Boozer’s contract.

  • http://twitter.com/thursti_tyht Thurstian Tsui

    Yeah Smith saying ATL is on his FA destination list is total bull

  • Dagger

    The only way he moves is by making the Raptors worse. Much like when he plays.

  • RKJ92

    I know I just wanna see him leave at this point I dont even care if we get value back for him (an expiring contract would be just fine), I just dont want him to play for us anymore lol, dudes an abyss!

  • RKJ92

    Oh, believe me I know.. I just can’t stand to even see him anymore.. Idk what were gonna do with him though in the future. I’m PRAYING we trade him draft night for a low number 1 pick but its wishful thinking maybe.. other then that maybe ride out the 3 years left on his contract? and sign him for like 6 mill a year, for 3 years and I’d be fine with that. Thoughts???

    John Lucas is terrible, he should never be anything more than a 3rd string PG on an NBA roster .. like Darrick Martin

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    when his contract is expiring he will be tradeable. For the sake of sanity in Toronto, Colangelo would be best served to just cut his losses and trade Bargnani for whoever will take him.

  • RKJ92

    that is possibly the most amazing username i’ve ever seen lol, I laughed so hard haha
