What is Bargnani really worth, on the open market?
The intent of this blog entry is simple:
To solicit from others what it is THEY believe is THE VERY BEST package of assets which the Raptors could, possibly, acquire in return for Andrea Bargnani, if Toronto was to actually openly “shop him” across the league, in advance of the 2011 NBA Draft?
Here’s what you need to do, in order to participate:
Identify the team you believe would be willing to make a trade withh Toronto;
e.g. Minnesota Timberwolves
Identify the specific asset[s] which you believe this other team would be willing to part with, in return for receiving only Andrea Bargnani from the Raptors.
Identify the rationale which you believe this other team would put forth for being willing to make this trade, in the first place.
e.g. Minnesota needs a 2nd option scoring Big Man to play beside Kevin Love who can more than compensate for Bargnani’s deficiency as a rebounder; while the T-Wolves have an excess of Off Guards.
