ESPN Marc Stien: Bargs and Caldy on the Block

http://espn.go.com/nba/dailydime/_/p...-trade-targets

Quote:
Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon


Numerous front-office sources describe the Raptors as the team, more than any other on the NBA map, most motivated to make a deal. Which isn't terribly surprisingly when you consider that the Raps began the season with dreams of challenging for the last playoff spot in the East and entered the weekend at 4-19.
There are some legit alibis for Toronto's struggles, once you add up all of the injuries and scroll through its road-heavy early schedule, but the Raptors have new problems. Sources have maintained for weeks that former No. 1 overall pick Bargnani is available in tandem with the expiring contract of veteran point guard Calderon, but Bargnani is suddenly dealing with an elbow injury that is expected to sideline him at least three weeks.
Combine that with the fact that Bargnani hasn't played well all season -- as well as the contractual issues detailed in this cyberspace last week that would presumably turn off the Lakers in particular -- and you struggle to see how the Raps could find a taker for the Italian. The growing sentiment around the league, as a result, is that the Raptors might be forced to move Calderon on his own or as the headliner in a deal to initiate the shakeup they appear to badly need.




Sources say the Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks would love to import Calderon, but neither has the spare assets to easily swing a trade for a player making $10.6 million this season with a 10 percent trade kicker in his contract.

What I will say is that with the Atlantic so loaded with good teams, Toronto would be smart to cash out on their veterans for picks and prospects. Bargs is gonna be in his thirties by the time Toronto's going to be in position to win the division again.

EDIT: Also, things like this don't help his future with the club.

Andrea Bargnani: Raptors are worst

Associated Press
TORONTO -- Toronto forward-center Andrea Bargnani offered a blunt assessment of the struggling Raptors, telling an Italian newspaper that the club is "pretty much the worst team in the NBA."

Re: ESPN Marc Stien: Bargs and Caldy on the Block

Sounds like we won't trade Calderon because we "need him" to win one game out of five for the rest of the year. No bites on the big Italian.

Moving Bargnani is essential for both sides.
