In today's Raptor Game Armstrong said something I have long believed:
Murray has no Value on the Market to get you something in return so the raptors only chip to play is Mo Pete + and expiring Montross Contract.agreed
Mo Pete = $1,646,079
Montross = $2,960,000
Total 4.6 Million
perhaps you throw in a Moiso/Baxter to make it happen.
Raps would pick up an interior player with some type of baggage. (over paid, inconsistent, older, trouble maker or some reason for another GM to want a change).
who? According to rumors.
<b>kurt Thomas 5.3 Million</b> - a little undersized - does Isaiah even want to deal with the Raps?
<b>Nazr Mohammed 5.0 Million</b> - Atlanta could use Mo Pete and a change - may work for both
<b>Nikoloz Tskitishvili 2.7 Millon</b> young 7 footer not a real inside player but perhaps they could work with that poential.
<b>Cliff Robinson 4.7Mill</b> - KO has dreams of his interior Defense - he's a 6'10 Curry but he is from the bay area and might not want to finish his career in the snow.
<b>Brendan Haywood 1.25 MIL</b> - Form NC running mate of Vince might fit in well along side Bosh as a shot blocking tandem. Washington has Kwame and Etan Thomas so ...
Armstrong went on to say <b>"...the Raps have to make a trade.." agreed
"...They'll have to bite the bullet move Mo and play Murray or Mason Jr. who he (JA) feel is a shooting gaurd. agreed
