GM John Gabriel was in town and Grunwald and he are hammering out a deal according to inside sources. The main culprits still remain Juwan Howard, Lamond Murray and Eric Montross.

bad deal.

Juwan has a bad contract - 6 years left on his deal. We simply dont need him.

As an Orlando fan, we certainly dont want Murray and Montross either. :)

If this is true, we are putting ourselves in a tough spot for the future. Our ability to resign Chris Bosh should be a concern, and if he earns a big contract, one of our core players needs to be moved in order to fit him in.

But if Howard does join the Raptors, I hope we can buy him low. I mean, I don't want to see Mo Pete or Moiso leave. If it is a package of Murray and Montross, as indicated, that's cool.

Howard on the Raps would make us a strong Eastern team, but strong enough? How far could we go?

Doesn't Montross' contract come off the books some time soon since he had to retire due to injury? If that's the case, then that's why the Magic would want him.

According to Hoopshype, Montross has about $3 mill due to him over each of the next two years. Murray, has three years left at about 13-14 mill total.


I guess Montross' contract wouldn't be that big of a deal.

what will happen to the rotation?

anyways, about the salaries, howard does have a real bad contract but we will lose the contracts of hakeem this year and we'll also lose the contracts of murray and montross, thats about 12 mil right there so im not that concerned with the salaries. maybe the only thing thatd i'd be concerned about is whether we'd be able to resign donyell after next season....

if the deal happens, then i'd be fine with it....we get more depth in the lineup and we can always use more talent....the deal would undoubtedly make the team a 4th or 5th seeded team at least....

Well, I would hope they could get more than that out of Juwan, but he does need to go somewhere else .. he doesnt fit with Orlando and is holding Drew Gooden back.

If Orlando makes that deal, then they are doing it with their eyes dead on Dwight Howard and Emeka Okafor.

We don't need Howard with his 6 yr contract to solve our short term problem....i think we have a pretty good team right now especially when Moiso and Archibald is improving....

He's exactly what Orlando, and Toronto for that matter, need. Howard would be hard to pass on, but Orlando doesnt really have a problem scoring but their interior defense and rebounding are abyssmal (Howard a big reason). Emeka would be a huge, huge improvement. We can only hope. We'll have to have 1 or 2 pick to get him though.

His contract is only at around 5 million a year ... for a guy who can put up 18-7 or so, that isnt that bad.

Juwan Howard would be a good fit for this team IF we didn't have Marshall and if Bosh didn't fit his role so quickly! If it wasn't for the trade, Howard probably would fit for this team! i think Leo Rautins mentioned in the game that he plays better with good players around him, just like Vince! The only bad thing is Howard can't lead a team so if Vince was hurt, Howard wouldn't be able to step up and be the leader.

And like mentioned in this thread, the contract just wouldn't work!
