Teams: Srbija, Crvena Zvezda
Another day, another deal by the Raptors.
PF/C: Antonio Davis
TO NEW YORK:
SG/SF: Jalen Rose
1st Rnd Pick Denver 2006
Good move by the Raps. Seems Davis will report and he can't really complain since he'll only be around for a few months. This deal was basically a swap of contracts. Both Rose and Davis are basically making the same amount but Davis' contract expires this summer while Rose has another year. Therefore, Toronto will save a lot of money which in turn can be used to re-sign Bosh to a max deal, re-sign Mike James and pick up a good free-agent or two. The 1st Rnd Pick from Denver given up in the deal is basically worth nothing anyways as this draft is supposedly not going to be that deep at all and Denver have been playing quite well as of late, so, if they were to make the play-offs that pick would be out of the lottery. (late 1st Rnd pick).
Perhaps E.Williams will be dealt before the deadline too, but I'm guessing someone would have to come back in return as Toronto is running low on players who can play the 2 and 3 positions.
I wouldn't be suprised if Araujo gets sent down to the D-league where he belongs once he gets healthy.
